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.

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!

Testimonial: "very helpful"
If working properly, model 5510 will work either from the internal rechargeable batteries or directly from the cord. If your shaver no longer recharges, it needs to have the rechargeable batteries replaced.

To open the shaver, you will first need to gently pry off the 'cap. on the bottom of the shaver that surrounds the hole where the cord plugs into to. You can use a small flat screwdriver or similar object to do this. Once it is removed, the side grips will pull away revealing 4 screws on the back. Remove screws to take off the back cover. The internal parts will then simply lift out. Reassemble in reverse order.
You will find a replacement drive unit for model 8585 at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

Testimonial: "Fast turnaround on the response with an very easy to follow answer."
It's actually easier than it looks. On the bottom of the shaver is the charging port. That black plastic piece surrounding it can be pried off. Do it carefully, so you don't dent/scratch the casing. Once removed, the side pieces easily remove. You'll now see screws holding the body together. Have at it. :-)
