How to replace battery pack for a Norelco 6885xl electric shaver

I ordered a replacement battery pack on-line that was suppose to work in my Norelco 6885xl electric shaver. I opened the case and tugged gently on the dead battery pack but it won't pull free. Is it hardwired? How do i get the dang battery out? Do I need to have this done at a service center?

The battery pack is soldered to the shaver's circuit board. Yes, it's a poor design in building something that people can't readily service unless they have a soldering gun, ******, and wick, plus patience. However, there are plenty complaints online already, and my shaver won't get fixed by b-tching some more.

There are 2 choices for replacement:

1. Bring or mail it to a service center to have the batteries replaced. The fee usually runs $29.99-$39.99, which includes the battery, parts, labor, lubrating your motor, cleaning the interior, cleaning/stripping the cutters, heads, and trimmer, plus return shipping.

2. To save yourself $26-33 bucks, make sure you know how to solder and have the equipment described above. you can find single NiCad AA with solder tab for $3ea or a pair for about $7.95+. Table the batteries together, solder a single tab across +/- on one side, and solder the others onto their respective tabs in your shaver.

For me, I'd love nothing than to hobby around and do it myself, but with 3 kids, a full-time, job, Wii, and other hobbies, it's easiest to just send it out... some services will guarantee to have it done within 2 days of receipt. You'll just have a lil beard to test it out when you get it back. :-)

Find your manual. I removed a battery for this razer in the past. I cant seem to do it now (need another new battery) and am going to look for my manual.

How do I change the batteries in my 6885XL razor


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

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

Remove the two screws on the back to take off the back cover. One of the screws is hidden by the trimmer so you must extend the trimmer to see it. Once back is removed, remove the metal clip at the bottom end of the batteries. 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 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



Soldering is required to replace the battery pack. If you are not capable of soldering in the new batteries, you may want to consider buying the item below instead for easy installation

To change batteries, you will need to remove the back cover by removing the two screws. You will then be able to access the batteries. It is easier to work with if you remove the metal clip at the bottom of the shaver that covers the ends of the batteries.

I have a Norelco 6885XL electric razor that won't hold a charge. It will "recharge" to 44 minutes, but once below 39 minutes left it goes to 0 when turned on.


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

http://www.electricshaverstore.com/get_list_145.htm

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