SOURCE: I have a Norelco 6885XL electric razor that won't hold a charge.

It's easy - I replaced mine (Norelco 6885XL) with a soldering iron & batteries I found online. Here's one place that sells them:

As these are NiCd, I always drain them totally dead, then recharge, as this type of battery does suffer from the "memory effect".

SOURCE: how to replace batteriers in norelco quadra electric shaver

The rechargeable batteries are solder into the circuit board of the electric shaver. You'll have to use a soldering iron to de-solder the terminals/tabs from the PCB (printed circuit board) in order to get them out.

Then you'll need new replacement rechargeable batteries to solder back into the shaver.

You can get teh correct replacement batteries from Electric Shaver Service in Lincoln, Nebraska (if you're in the US or Canada). They even do service and repair work in about a week, if you want to have them fix your shaver for you.

Here's a link to the battery page with your shaver model's rechargeable batteries for about $15.00 (plus s&h)

SOURCE: Norelco model 5885 XL Battery replacments

I just installed two brand new Eneloop cells and it will only charge up to 35 minutes on the display (I had been able to get up to 52 minutes with the original NI-CAD's). I also discovered that it would not recognize the capactiy on the minute meter until I drained the batteries and recharged the unit. When I went to drain the batteries they ran for 2 hours and 15 minutes!!! But again the display only shows 35 minutes right now after an hour charge when it says FULL. I'll leave it on the charger and see what happens. I used a pair of needle nose pliers and "rolled" the metal tabs off the NI-CAD's. Snapped the one on the negative side but got the positive side off clean. I couldn't get the strips to solder back to the new Eneloop batteries so I had to use electrical tape which seems to be holding fine. The battery holder holds the positive and negative terminals against the old tabs just fine. Also I learned that if you hold the power button on long enough it will cycle through a test function. It will go to zero minutes and all the way up to 35, then turn on and go back to zero stopping at the appropriate cleaning cycle times (takes about 40 seconds to do the test so don't touch the power button until it's done). Not sure if the batteries will still go 2 hours and 15 minutes after being charged in the shaver, but they do when chaqrged outside the shaver. Just my two cents!

SOURCE: I own a Braun Electric Shaver Model 6525 Flex

if the shaver is DEAD and the green light no longer illuminates when you plug it in, the circuit board is almost certainly bad. The circuit board will burn out if you run the shaver from the batteries for a long time after the batteries have stopped charing properly.
you can purchase a new circuit board which has the batteries alrady on it. it just needs to be dropped in place inside the shaver.
you will find this part at shaveroutlet.com. see link below

You should always use the same type batteries that your shaver was designed to be used with. Your shaver was designed for use with NiCd batteries. If you have use NiMH batteries this may be causing the problem you described.
However, I would say that it is more likely that you have some sloppy solder that is bridging something that is not supposed to touch. You should check the battery solder joints on the circuit board and clean up any sloppy solder work that may be there.

SOURCE: Norelco Electric Razor problem: Jet Clean System won't work

I have had 3 1050CC shavers all with the same problem. Apparently other models have the same issue. After about a year of use, the unit reverses after dipping the shaver into the cleaning solution for a second. Two were replaced by Philips within the 2 year warranty period. I still use the 3rd one. There are several things you can try. If the cleaning solution is low this will cause the shaver to reverse and not clean. Add more cleaning solution. I have noticed that sometimes I have to add more fluid to the unit after a week of use. Sometimes it is necessary to fill the solution a little above the max fill line. Be careful though. Filling it too much above the max fill line can cause cleaning fluid to run out of the bottom after a cleaning cycle. If the above two fixes don't work, then press the clean button and after the unit reverses back up, wait about 5 or 10 minutes and press it again and it should stay down as long as there is enough cleaning solution in the unit. If you wait too long or too little to press the button, it won't work. I have noticed if I press the button immediately after it reverses the same problem occurs. Also if I wait 30 minutes before pressing the button the same problem occurs. There must be some sort of timing cycle. You may have to repeat this process a few times to get it to stay down and clean. This is the only way I can get mine to clean now. Obviously something is getting dirty or wearing out over time in the cleaning system. Since I have had 3 shavers with the same problem, I know many others have had it too. Philips must be aware of the problem. It is frustrating that they don't offer help on their own website and consumers have to band together to solve problems that they should be solving. The two year guarantee is very generous, but there is a design flaw with this product.

How do you remove and reinstall bartery-pack on Norelca 6846xl


You will find the correct battery pack for model 6846XL at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

http://shaveroutlet.com/shaver-replacement-parts/shaver-battery-pack-for-most-norelco-more-p-278.html

To replace, you will need to remove the back cover by removing the two screws. You may need to extend the long hair trimmer to get to the second screw. Take off back cover to access inside. There are two metal clips that must be unhooked for better access. You can unsolder the batteries from the circuit board but for easier replacement, it is sometimes suggested that you use a modified installation technique. This is to break the tabs off of the old batteries with small needle nose pliers rather than unsoldering them from the circuit board. This allows the old batteries to be removed but leaves the tabs attached to the circuit board. You can then solder the tabs from the new batteries to the old existing tabs
If you are not able to do this yourself, you can have shaveroutlet.com do it for you. See link below

Red light at bottom flashes even when razor ids fully charged. What can causrethis?


When the battery is almost empty (when there are only 5 or fewer shaving minutes left), the battery symbol lights up red.

Make sure that the battery does not have a memory effect. What I suggest is taking the shaving head unit off and running the shaver till empty, then recharging. Check if the red light is still flashing.

There's also a head indicator at the bottom of some shavers.

To remind you to replace the shaving unit, the shaving unit symbol flashes (all types) and you hear a beep when you switch off the shaver (RQ1090 only). This happens at the end of 7 successive shaves to remind you to replace the shaving unit.

Without knowing what model you have it's difficult to diagnose further.

Norelco shaver sudden power loss


I hope you are observing the following:- Recharging only when the batteries are almost completely empty. Continuously recharging or continuously using as a corded razor will reduce life of batteries Charge only when the indicator in charge meter starts blinking. It appears that your batteries are gone. Hope you have replaced the batteries with the new ones. Use a good brand

My razor appears to have died even though the LED


Usually the batteries last only a few years before needing replacement. Rechargeable batteries are good for only so many cycles so you've done well to go 8 years. You can replace the batteries if you're handy with a soldering iron - I've done it many times. However, with 8 years on the clock you'll probably want to replace the blades too. The batteries are about $10 for the pair (AA rechargeables with solder tabs) and the blade set is about $30 so you're approaching the cost of a new shaver already. Here's a link - you'll need two.

My battery will not recharge


The battery has finally degraded to the point that it won't hold or pass voltage, so yes it needs to be replaced. Luckily, with a few skills, such as disassembly and soldering, you can remove and reinstall a new, rechargeable battery that should get the razor working like a champ.

Electric Shaver Service stocks most rechargeable replacement batteries for almost all electric shavers made.

Here's a link to the battery page, just find your model and you're ready to go. If you want, you can call and confirm which is the correct replacement battery for your specific model shaver too.
