SOURCE: Braun 360 Cleaning base
When you are looking top down into the cleaning base you want to look to the left side of the hole where you put your razor. That is were the solution drains out after your razor is cleaned and there is probably a blockage there. I used a toothpick to clean mine out every once in awhile when gunk would build up there.

SOURCE: Cleaning base thinks it's empty
I had the same problem. Try taking out the cartridge and in the compartment where the razor sits in to get clean, there is a drain hole on the left side. Try cleaning the hole out with a toothpick or something similar. It seems that the drain hole clogs and causes this problem. I just did it and all seems to be working fine.

SOURCE: I have a Braun 360
In your case, it's hard to know exactly what might be wrong without
more information. Was the shaver exposed to undue heat, such as left
in a car or in a place that wasn't air conditioned in the hot summer?
I have a couple of vintage Braun shavers (over 15 years old) where the batteries do not hold a charge, but the shavers still work when plugged in. One of them will show a low charge level but still work.
Although the batteries in these shavers are fairly robust, if fully discharged and not used for 18 months, it might be that they've got a "low level memory" and will need replacing. If you are handy, you could disassemble the shaver and replace the batteries. They are NiMh AA flat top batteries that you can buy on websites like onlybatteries.com. If you're handing with soldering, you can replace them yourself. If you're unsure about that, you can buy the batteries along with the circuit board as a complete unit that drops right into place. Shaveroutlet.com sells these for the 360 complete shavers. Good luck!

Put a few drops of tap water in the solution if the light goes red until it goes out. Cheap, green way to reuse the plastic container!
