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.

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

This shaver model was very popular back in the 1990's. They aren't meant to last more than 10 years with regular use. They can be reconditioned, as replacement parts are available, but it's probably not worth the trouble. You've put your shaver to good use--it's time for a new one. You can offer up your shaver on eBay for parts as-is and actually make a little $$ (some people can make use of the parts, for those who repair these things). I'd recommend getting an 8000 series model. They are very well made and still quite a lot cheaper than the 9000 (Pulsonic) series.

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

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.

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.


thank you for using Fix Ya and Good luck to you.

So a very simple fix is to just clean the corrosion from the battery terminals inside the thermometer. You'll need a Torx T9 screwdriver (Maplin, eBay, Amazon, maybe pound shops).

1. Insert a flat head screw driver (FHSD) on the opening shown on picture. 2. While pushing down, move the FHSD towards LOT (right at this angle) as you pull towards you. The goal is to have an opening at the arch. 3. Insert another FHSD (or hard plastic if you don't want to mar) at the arch if it doesn't open. The battery orientation signs are shown on the back of the battery cover. I hope this helps. Keep fixing!
