How long have you had the shaver? If it has been a couple of years, then it sounds like the batteries are exhausted.

The batteries can be replaced, although it's not as easy as changing them out of a flashlight. There is a way to disassemble the shaver and change the batteries. They are soldered in place at two basic points. If you obtain replacement batteries (on eBay you can get them for about $12 a piece), you can perform the replacement yourself:



Opening a Braun 7000 Series Shaver

1) Find a thin metal object with no sharp edges (such as a nail file). Use your thumb and pull on the bottom end cord socket part, enough to cause a gap between it and the back shell. Insert the metal object into the gap in the center of the part. THEN pry it off. If you use a regular screw driver, you will likely cause gouges in the plastic. And the best leverage is in the center.

2) The silver side parts are held on by two tabs at the top. With the bottom piece gone, the side parts swing off easily. Don't worry about keeping track of which sides the silver trim pieces go on, as they're designed to fit on only one side (you'll see the cutout for the shaver head stem is off to one side).

3) The case is held together by 4 small torq screws. Use a torq screwdriver--do not attempt to do this with anything else. Be careful to turn the screws slowly, so you don't strip them.

4) With the screws removed, the two halves of the shaver will come apart. The remaining parts can be extracted without any special tools. Keep note of how they are removed, as assembly will be the reversal of removal.

5) Note that if you are replacing the batteries (there are two of them), you will need a soldering iron to detach them from the circuit board, unless you're replacing the whole part.

6) Reassembly is pretty much what you expect--the reverse of disassembly. However, the bottom cord socket part is tricky to get put into place. Pushing straight down on this part will not get it to go in, nor any other obvious way. It's best to get the prongs inserted on one side, then while pushing in on the prongs of the opposite side, apply pressure on the top side surfaces. The part should snap right back into place.

The red light flashed after several months. When I put the 7526 in the base and pushed the charge button, the green light does not light. When the green light on the base goes off, I turn on the shaver and the red light flashes. It sound like it has been charged but the red light keeps flashing.

Hi pi finch,

Below are some troubleshooting steps for this issue. If you have any questions or need additional assistance, Consumer Care can be reached at 1-800-243-3050.
Question Why does the shaver not charge when I place it in the refill & charge station? Answer
  • The adapter has not been properly inserted in the wall outlet
  • the small plug has not been inserted properly in the refill & charge station.
  • There is no electric contact between the refill & charge station and the shaver because the shaver has not been placed properly in the station. First put the bottom of the shaver in the station. Then push the shaver backward till it locks into position with a click. The indication lights on the shaver and the station light up to signal that there is proper contact between shaver and station.
  • There is no electric contact between the refill & charge station and the shaver because the contact strips are dirty. Clean the strips with a damp cloth.
Hope this helps. If so, let me know by rating this solution.

Just bought braun 8585 electric shaver, return it to the store as nothing happens while charging. Got a new one and still not able to charge it, shouldn't the indicator turn red or green? nothing happens....


Did you insert a cartridge into the cleaning base? It needs that in order to work. Otherwise, try plugging the charger directly into the shaver. It should definitely charge the shaver, as long as the shaver is fine. Depending on the model, the charging indicator may be green or blue.

Charged for approx. 6 hours then wouldn't work


I copied this from the Philips website... this took me FOREVER to find! Their site isn't the easiest to find products on...

"Insert the small plug into the shaver and put the powerplug in the wall socket. When you charge the appliance for the first time or after a long period of disuse, let the shaver charge for at least 16 hours. Remove the powerplug from the socket and the small plug from the shaver as soon as the batteries have been fully charged. Ignore the charge indicator when you charge the batteries for the first time. The batteries are completely new and need to be charged longer than the time indicated by the charge indicator to ensure that the back-up capacity is fully charged as well."

I hope this helps. Please remember to rate my help! I would greatly appreciate it!

Braun Shaver 360 Complete #8985


the 110 plugin goes into a circuit which changes AC to DC for charging the internal NiCad batteries. If there is NO charge whatsoever in the batteries, the shaver will not work. If you have any electronics background a simple test with a VOM will determine if the bridge rectifier is putting out any DC.[you must disassemble the shaver] If you have no experience on circuits take it to a repair location.
