Question about Braun Flex Integral 6520 Electric Shaver

Open Question

I have a 6522 Braun shaver. I know how to take it apart which is easy. The batteries need replacing. I also know that I can buy a new PCB with the batteries on it. But can someone tell me exactly what the batteries are and where I can buy them. I have replaced them with rechargable NiMH 2.300mAh but the thing runs at about half speed. I did fully charge them before I installed them. Thank you

SOURCE: I have the same problem with my Braun 7570 as the Jan.8, 2008 writer about the 7526 or 7680 shaver. The blue button came off but the shaver still works

Pry out the blue button. In the oval hole where the button was you will see a thin metallic part (semi-circular shapes on each side); pull it out through the hole and the switch will be functional.

Unfortunately this is almost impossible. The batteries are part of the circuit board, and Braun only authorize their service agents to replace the whole unit, and my local agent found that it had been discontinued. If you still want to have a go, two screws are hidden beneath the two grey plastic caps either side of the charging socket on the underside of the shaver which can be prized off quite easily. Once you have removed the screws, the small plastic section comes off. Now you can slide the outer casing off. A thin black cover at the back can then be unclipped, revealing the circuit board and batteries. The whole unit simply lifts out and would be easy to replace if you could find one! Rplacing the batteries would be far more difficult and risky. Good luck.

If the "reset" described didn't work all that well, as a last resort you can replace the batteries. You have two choices: put in a battery/circuit-board part replacement (drop in), or solder in new batteries. If you've got some soldering experience, I recommend replacing just the batteries. You can buy new NiMH AA 1.2v flat top batteries rather cheaply (less than $4 per cell) and using a soldering iron, take out the old ones and secure the new ones. Look for batteries with at least a 1650mAh rating. Good luck!

SOURCE: Braun 5614 rechargeable cordless shaver light flickers

Your batteries are starting to degrade, but the good news is they're still holding a charge for a week, so you really don't need to rush to replace them at this point.

The flickering of the charged indicator is normal, as the shaver is still plugged in and the batteries are fully charged. The flickering is due to the batteries chemicals breaking down, and as such, the charge cycle keeps "topping" them off while it's still plugged in.

When you finally aren't able to get a decent amount of cordless operation and run times from your shaver, then you'll want to get them replaced, whether you decide to do that yourself or have it done by a professional service center, is up to you.

Here's a reference for your future use. www.electricshaver.com carries replacement (factory OEM) batteries for most brands of shavers and they also will provide the repair/replacement service for you, should you decide you don't want to do it yourself. You can also give them a call at 1-888-476-1785 and request a price quote, etc.

Anyway, your shaver is working fine and all you need to do is make sure you're not letting the shaver stay plugged in and charging constantly for more than a day, since any "extra" chargind isn't doing anything except keeping the batteries at a constant state of charge. Heat is a byproduct of charging and discharging any battery and as such, you want to allow for a cool down period before recharging them.

I tend to use my shaver until it is almost completely discharged before recharging it. By doing this, you can get the longest working life out of your batteries before you'll have to replace them.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

My shaver battery is dead and I need help to show how the shaver is taken apart to remove the battery. I would also like to know where I could take the shaver for battery replacement in the Lynnfield MA...


I dont know where you can take the shaver in your area. But, you can have the folks at shaveroutlet.com repair it for you. See link below<br /> <br /> <a href="http://shaveroutlet.com/professional-battery-replacement-for-most-models-p-374.html">http://shaveroutlet.com/professional-battery-replacement-for-most-models-p-374.html</a><br /> <br /> To take apart the shaver, you will need to gently pry off the cap at the very bottom of the shaver (this plastic piece surrounds the cord hole). Once removed, the side grips will pull away revealing 4 screws. Remove screws to take off back cover.<br /> If you are able to take this apart yourself, an easy fix is to buy the printed circuit board from shaveroulet.com.

Braun Model 5415. On/off switch doesn't always work. Not sure if worth fixing as it only works when plugged into an outlet.


Hello Highway! It appears that your battery needs to be replaced also, as well as the switch. Typically this wouldn't be all that expensive to do, if you can perform the repair yourself, or sent it off to an authorized service center.

But, the best thing to do is to give a call to a Authorized Braun service center and get an estimate of having them do the repairs needed and use that as your guide to make a decision to either repair or replace the shaver.

You can call electric shaver toll free at 1-888-476-1785 and get a estimate for having them repair your shaver to like new. You can also view the parts and costs for what you need, should you decide to undertake the repairs yourself, by going to their web site at www.electricshaver.com and entering in your model number to view all the available parts for your Braun shaver.

I've repaired several of my family's and my own shavers using them and have been very pleased with the work and the turn around to get them back.
If you are handy and can dissemble and solder, you can do this yourself, otherwise, you can send it off to a repair service that will do this for you.

If you wish to do this yourself, you'll have to take the shaver apart. There are two (2) small plastic caps on the bottom of the shaver that can be removed with a small pick or flatbladed screwdriver. Once those are out, you can unscrew the two screws that hold the shaver together and gently pry off the side panels.

This will expose the internal circuit board and the rechargable batteries that need to be unsolded. You can then reinstall NEW rechargable batteries and solder them onto the PCB (printed circuit board). You can also purchase a complete internal PCB with the batteries and everything you need, you just swap out the electronics for the new one, although this costs about $39, while the batteries alone are much less.

Put the shell together and reinstall the retaining screws and caps and you're done.

Here's a link to get the replacement batteries for your shaver. They also do the repair service, if you don't want to do it yourself.

Braun 5750 needs new battery -this i think is only available with circuit board - where can i purchase or get this shaver repaired


If you are handy and know how to solder (and have the tools required), you can probably do the replacement yourself.

At the bottom of the razor are two plastic caps on either side of the charging port, you'll need to pry them out with a sharp pick or thin knive tip. Once removed, you can get to the screws that hold the front and rear case halfs onto the main shaver chassis where the PCB with the rechargeable battery is soldered onto the board.

Unsolder the battery and solder in the new replacement battery and put the case back together, making sure all the parts are in the correct posistion, and you're ready to recharge the shaver and start shaving again. If you're going to replace the internal board, it's just a matter of simply replacing the entire board and orienting the motor assembly connection onto the new PCB.

To find your replacement parts or batteries, try Electric Shaver Service. They also do repairs, so you might want to get an estimate if you don't want to do the repair yourself, etc. They're reliable and fast in getting shavers repaired and back to you quickly. 1-888-476-1785

Here's a link to the page with your battery on it and the toll free number to call for estimates too.

Battery replacement for Braun 8585


I'm pretty sure that the batteries are part of a sealed unit with the PCB on this model, and after checking the Service Diagram I'm even more convinced.

I would suggest fully charging and discharging (leaving it running without the foil and cutter on) a number of times to see if you can improve the performance, as there may be a memory effect on the battey. The model is only 5 years old so your batteries should have a little more life.

It is a mains/rechargeable shaver though, so you "should" still be able to use it with the lead plugged directly into the shaver. So the shaver may not be a dead loss! :)

Braun 5520 Shaver Stopped Working


The "Braun 5520" doesn't have the 2 screws under 2 small caps on bottom, as described by so many on these boards.
The round plastic plug receptacle 'itself' is the release. (Twist-Release the outer ring.)
Look on the base, where you plug the AC cord in.... Just inside the rim, you will see two small 'recesses', opposite each other, that allow a wedge tool (like a large screw driver) to turn the rim counter-clockwise (left) 45 degrees, releasing the base and housing.
Once this is unlocked, slide the cover off and pop the black retainer cover off to reveal the "PC Board W/Batteries" module/assembly. (Batteries are NOT replaceable by themselves.)
There is a tiny (and I mean "tiny"!) resistor that burns out in the circuit board and causes the majority of power malfunctions in these models.
You can order a new PC Board (with batteries) for approx. $40.00. (+ S&H)
One place is: "http://www.electricshaverstore.com/get_item_5505631_braun-pc-board-w-batteries.htm".
(Fits Models: 5510, 5515, 5520, 6515, 6520, 6510, 6512 - Types: 5505, 5506, 5705, 5706)

Or, find other by Googling "Braun 5520 Circuit board assembly", and/or replace this model with your number.
