    the trimmer on the 9595 does not fully retract.

  • nossaman Feb 02, 2009

    I checked the trimmer when I first got it and it closed fine. Never really use it. I used the trimmer last week and now it will not fully close and stays open. What can I do. It is very annoying.

  • Anonymous Feb 18, 2009

    I bought the shaver about a year ago and used the trimmer rather often - not each time I used the shaver but maybe every week at least once. The trimmer always retracted perfectly until I obviously managed to unhinge it. Now, it stays half-open -- well, you can push it closed but it usually retracted just fine and stayed closed.

I had this problem, and it was due to the breakage of a plastic part.  If you slide the trimmer open you can see a piece of spring wire beyond the end of the word 'trimmer'.  The broken piece should locate the end of this spring; if it fails then the spring no longer forces the trimmer blade fully shut.  As the trimmer was opened and closed I could see that the spring did not stay symmetrically placed.  I could also see one end of the spring inside the mechanism, rubbing on the surface under the slider - but not the other.
To help with the instructions, let me identify some parts: "A" is the sliding part that your thumb pushes to open the trimmer; it carries the word 'trimmer'.  "B" is the hinged part that carries the trimmer blade itself and the word 'washable'.  "C" is the flexible piece of black plastic that connects A to B and on which the central section of the spring pushes.
To fix, first remove the sliding section A: slide the trimmer open and push a thin screwdriver down one edge of the slider.  Prise the lugs that hold A in place, away from their slots. Disconnect the connector C from the blade part B (gently push the lugs outwards, one at a time). Turn over the slider A and you should be able to see that one or both lugs that are intended to keep the ends of the spring in place, have broken.  (They are on a silver moulding fixed to the underside of slider A).  I fixed both ends in place with some two-part epoxy - be careful not to get glue on the other parts!  Allow to dry completely and reassemble.

    I tried this and found that both lugs that keep the spring in place had lost their edges or shelves. I couldn't find the tiny missing tabs so I bought the replacemet trimmer unit as in solution 2 below, but only replaced the slider as above so I did not have to dissasemble the shaver head. It worked.Two comment.
    1- You need to hook the ends of the spring on part "C" above on the post ledge of part "A" so it will work properly.
    2. There is a seperate spring on part "A" that connect to a black arm. To engage the unit properly as you put it back in, the black arm must first be swung up into the position that place it pointing toward the end of part "A" that has the r from the word trimmer. That way when you slide "A" all the way down it will engage the proper slot in the base.
    Good luck

The trimmer is replaceable and can be purchased as an assembly http://buyitnow64.stores.yahoo.net/brshrese7pul.html You will T-6 and T-8 torx drivers to take apart the head end of the shaver. Using these tools, remove the swiveling head, the hold down cover over the motor assembly, and then pop off the drive arm for the trimmer. Now the broken trimmer assembly can be slid out of the end of the shaver by carefully prying between the case where the on/off button is located and the black trimmer assembly base with a small flat blade jeweler's screwdriver. The new trimmer assembly can then be slid into the case and the shaver reassembled. Just be sure the ends of the retraction spring on the new trimmer assembly are installed over the little chrome retaining lugs for them or your trimmer will not fully retract (my trimmer assembly arrived with the spring ends loose and not retained by the lugs).

    I haven't tried this yet, but it appears you can remove the entire motor with the head assembly still attached from the top of the shaver while removing the broken trimmer which would be much easier. To do this, remove the black rubberized back by removing the single attachment T8 screw in the cord plug-in socket and then pry the back off of the silver plastic case. Remove the four T8 screws holding down the case cover and remove the case cover straight up off the case. The motor assembly should now be loose which will allow it to be extracted out the top of the case along with the broken timmer assembly as the trimmer is being removed. Reverse the above steps to install the new trimmer and you should be good to go. Again, I haven't tried this exact procedure, so I can't guarantee it will work.

SOURCE: braun 7526 shaver switch

Managed to fix it - actually was a 7680. Only do this if you:

1. have a small screwdriver set

2. are handy putting little delicate plastic pieces and springs together again

3. are prepared to face the possibility that you might break the shaver entirely

4. you are out of warranty so you don't care if you invalidate it

THE PROBLEM is caused by a small flat metal assembly that acts as a spring to hold the blue button in place. That is held by 4 small glue posts. The glue breaks down, the flat spring falls out of place and the blue button is no long in the right place.

TO OPEN UP THE SHAVER

a. gently remove the plastic cover around the electrical socket underneath, using a small flathead screwdriver to pry it open

b. the two metallic sides of the shaver can be pulled away starting at the bottom of the shaver

c. uncrew the four screws on the underside of the shaver

d. remove cutter block, battery/lcd block (make sure you don't lose the grommet around the lcd display

e. pull the spring and little plastic latch off the underside of the switch, make sure you remember how to put it back (took me almost 20 mins to figure out how to get that back afterwards)

f. slide the switch all the way up and pull it off the slide - you might need a little gentle force and a flathead screwdriver to coax it off - be careful you don't break anything here

g. remove the trimmer from the rest of the switch

h. put the blue piece back in place (mine had fallen out), then glue the flat metal spring back in place. I smeared brush-on crazy glue on the flat surfaces to hold it in place, I would imagine a four drops of reasonably strong glue on each of the glue posts would work best. Wait for the glue to dry and achieve strength.

i. slide the trimmer back into place, then the plastic latch and spring - this is the tricky part. Make sure the switch can slide on/off in all positions properly.

j. put the display/battery & cutter block back in place. put the back of the shaver on, hold the shaver together with your fingers and test the switch works in all positions without jamming. If so put the four screws back, followed by the metallic sides followed by the plastic cover of the electrical socket.

GOOD LUCK!!

SOURCE: Braun Pulsonic Razor - Pop up trimmer will not retract entirely

I ran into this problem several months ago. I just shook it and forced it until it retracted and never thought anything of it. The trimmer recently broke (still functioned but extended beyond its normal point) and I took it apart. I realized that there were a few broken parts inside (possibly because of my earlier experience). So I removed the few parts and now it still extends to far, but otherwise functions ok if I'm careful.

I would recommend taking yours apart and seeing if you can find any parts floating around which may be causing it to not retract all the way. It may be broken beyond complete repair, but you may be able to get a little more use out of it.

If nothing else, you can order a new casing for it from here

Here are the instructions for taking it apart:

The shaver itself is easy to take apart. The part on the bottom(opposite from the shaver mechanism) pops off with just a slight bit ofprying. Be careful not to break the pins though. Once you have thatoff, the narrow sides pop off pretty easily. Then you can remove the 4screws opening up the interior.

Be careful at this pointbecause there are a lot of parts that may fall out. (Perhaps take apicture as soon as you open it so you know where everything was whenyou opened it). At this point you can try your hand at fixing it (minehad 3 parts broken and loose inside), or you can simply switch it withthe new casing (Which i'm going to do when I get it). Good Luck!

SOURCE: Trimmer not retracting back into shaver all the way

Hi Sorry I don't have the answer but this must be a common problem as my braun has the trimmer sticking out at 45 degrees when closed. The head lock went 2 weeks before the trimmer wouldn't retract so it looks like a design problem

Can I replace my Remington Titanium MS 5200 shaver's battery myself and where do I buy the battery?


You will find compatible batteries for model MS-5200 at shaveroutlet.com. See link below. You will need two

http://shaveroutlet.com/shaver-replacement-parts/batteries/shaver-battery-pack-for-most-shavers-p-211.html

To open the shaver body, remove one screw on the back. Also partially remove the 4 outer screws found on the metal plate under the cutters. Once these 4 screws are removed you can partially remove the top part of the shaver body (the parts with the trimmer on it). Then you will need to gently pry off the rubberized grip on the front of the shaver. This will reveal two more screws. Remove these to seperate the front and back of the shaver and access the batteries.
You will need to remove the wires from the batteries by melting the solder with a soldering iron. Solder in the new batteries and reassemble. Charge for 24 hours before use

To access one of the screws on the back or the unit, the trimmer must be partially removed. When you pop up the trimmer for normal use, it pivots near the top of the shaver. At this pivot point, each side of the trimmer has a tiny plastic pin that inserts into a socket of the shaver body. You can insert smaill flat screwdriver between the side of the trimmer and the shaver body and gently pry the pins out of their sockets

Installing the big shaver back into trimmer


I have the same problem happen after about 15 months. The trimmer stays after being closed projecting approx. 1/4" from the face of the shaver and will not retract flush to the body. It also appears to be the spring. Does anyone know if there are there disassembly instructions for this and how it might be fixed? Sending it in for warranty can take up to two weeks. If I send it out for warranty my beard will get out of control and I don't have the hockey playoffs excuse anymore!

The third screw is hard to see. To access it, you will need to remove the trimmer from the point that it pivots out from the shaver. Use a small flat screwdriver to gently pry the small plastic pegs from their corresponding sockets on the shaver body.

My toshiko trimmer is not getting charged, even after charging for 6 hrs it works hardly for 5 seconds and stops.what should i do?


mcdevito75 here, Sounds like the batteries won"t take a charge anymore. Refer to the Toshiko website at Tosiko.com for battery replacement, however at times the batteries cannot be replaced as they are attached to a circuit board and, you"d need to replace the shaver.
