It is not that young anymore. The rechargeable battery is (almost?) dead. It is almost impossible to replace it. I once tried it, took me more than a day yo put everything together and still it never was as before.
I have bought a new Braun (799) and I'm convinced this one will live longer. The rechargeable battery in this one, you can shave one hour before you need to recharge it. It lasts a week with me, or sometimes even longer, before I have to charge it again.
Perhaps you just use the shaver with the power cord, like we used to do for 20 years, and start saving for a new one?
You state that is works here so other than the charging not showing I don't see a real problem here. If it drains totally and then does not recharge it is one of two things. Bad battery or bad charger. Replace the charging station first.
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.
Hello, typically when you charge a new electric shaver for the first time, it can take up to 10-12 hours for the batteries to get a full charge. Even then, it will take several charge - discharge cycles before the batteries are able to accept and hold a true, full charge.
With any battery appliance or tool, it is best to use the item until it is fully discharged or stops working and then allow the item to cool down for at least 30 minutes before recharging the battery device. If you follow that recommendation, you'll get a longer working life out of the batteries before they need to be replaced.
You can give the above a try and see if that helps get the shaver to take a full charge and go from there.
It sounds like your batteries are no longer able to hold a charge and are in need of replacement. With all rechargeable shavers, once the batteries are incapable of holding even a minimal charge, the shaver becomes unable to be used, sometimes even wih the power cord plugged into an outlet. My Braun shavers all worked for about a year after it would no longer operate on battery power alone, then the shavers all stopped working regardless of being plugged in directly to an outlet.
As you mentioned you are still under the warranty period, I would suggest you contact the company and request warranty service for your shaver.
if you weren't under warranty, I would advise getting the replacement batteries and doing a repair yourself.
The motor brushes may be bad. Take the screen off and turn the shaver on. Manually move the blade back and forth a bit and see if it starts to engage. If it begins to run when you do this, the brushes are worn. Braun does not make replacement motors for your shaver
