    Good afternoon,

    My name is **** Mooij in Amstelveen, The Netherlands. I need the battery (2) I think for my Braun 6550 shaver. In Holland (Braun Service Ltd.) they informed me it is not possible to purchase this battery for the model 6550.

    If I want to let it be repaired by Braun Holland, the costs of repairing would be a lot more than the new price of a new model! I don't believe this.

    Can somebody help me? Greetings, **** Mooij from the Netherlands.

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.

How to replace battery braun shaver series 1


I don't know about this specific model of Braun shaver (I have a Braun Model 7526).

I have looked at the instructions for a couple of models of Braun Shaver, and the instructions are similar so it may help you to replace the batteries in yours.

Here is one of the instructions:
Braun 7526 battery problem
http://www.fixya.com/support/t1171024-braun_7526_battery_problem

Open the shaver:
1) Use a small flat screw driver pry off the bottom (where the cord plugs in)
2) Remove the silver sides
3) Using a small torq driver remove the 4 screws
4) Open shaver
5) Remove circuit board with batteries
6) Remove and replace circuit board with batteries (or solder in the new batteries)

And here is a link to instructions for a few different ones:

My shaving machine BRAUN when i plug in not workig and is not charging as well


Sounds like the batteries need to be changed. You will find compatible batteries at shaveroutlet.com. See link below. You will need two

To open shaver, remove the two round screw covers on the bottom by prying them out. Remove screws underneath. Slide outer case off the bottom. You may need to reposition the lock to get it all the way off. Inside, you will need to unsnap and remove the black cover to access the batteries. For easier replacement, it is suggested that you use a modified installation technique. This is to break the tabs off of the old batteries 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 repair the shaver yourself, shaveroutlet.com can do it for you. See link below

I need to replace the batteries, but I do not know what part number to purchase. The batteries do not have any part number on them. Braun 6550 shaver


You will find the correct battery type at shaveroutlet.com. See link below. You will need two batteries.

http://shaveroutlet.com/shaver-replacement-parts/shaver-replacement-battery-aa-nimh-p-108.html

I suggest that you read the installation tip on the item page as well.

Also, does the green charging indicator light still illuminate when you plug the shaver in to charge? If it no longer lights, don't waste your time with the batteries because your have waited too long to change them and the circuit board is now damaged. Unfortunately, circuit boards for model 6550 are no longer available from Braun

I want to replace the braun 6550 with the same shaver, but i cant find anyone who sells them so what is the replacement shaver


shaveroutlet.com may have a PCB that could work in your 6550 model but from what I discovered it is not the same as the one you currently have. It will make the razor function but the LCD will not be available to show battery life. you will have a red and a green light only. If you can live with this than I would suggest contacting shaveroutlet.com. I have the same problem as I have a model 6550 and I have been looking for a replacement PCB ..Printed Circuit Board but have been unable to find one. Call Brian at shaveroutlet.com. I plan on contacting him next week ...Feb 7, 2013 with same problem

Change battry


I don't believe that the cell unit can be changed. It is rechargeable, so if it is not recharging it is probably kaput or your cord needs to be replaced. I looked through all the replacement parts for your shaver and there is no battery available. Here is an address where you can find a place to have it service if you want to or at least speak to someone regarding the shaver.
