The drive unit is probably not seated correctly. It must be pushed down when reassembling in order to keep the motor contacts in the correct position until the case is secured

If you need batteries or PC board, this will raise the price considerably and you may find a less expensive option of buying a replacement. You will also find similar replacement units at shaveroutlet.com

SOURCE: Braun Series 7 760cc dead after 2 months

Had this same problem with mine. One month after warranty was done with. I ended up opening the thing up and pulled the monster battery out of its socket and put it back in. Worked fine after that. One week and still strong. Another thing I did was to carefully bend up the flat pieces of copper around the battery to make sure they were still getting a good contact with the pins on the cover. Hope this works for you....

  1. The black rubber/plastic cover on the back will pop off if carefully pried apart from the gray plastic. Start around the middle of the razor body.
  2. Once the black piece is removed you will see four screws holding on a plastic cover. These can be removed with a sharp flat head screwdriver.
  3. The plastic cover can then be pried from the razor body. Be very careful though as there is a rubber seal around this to keep water out. I broke mine.
  4. Inside you will see a somewhat large red battery with prongs on either end. Pop it out of its location and wait a couple of seconds. Press it back into position and you should hear a click for both ends.
  5. After this, I took all of the flat copper pieces and gently bent them towards myself (without making them touch of course... this could cause a short and potentially cause the battery to explode).
  6. Replace everything and see how it works... Hopes this fixed it for you and saved you $100-200. Have a good day!
Also... I am not responsible for any damages that may occur.

You will need to replace the battery pack. Depending on when your shaver was made, it may have one of two different battery types. You will ned to look inside to see which you need before ordering.

To open, remove the two round screw covers on the bottom of the shaver. Remove screws to remove bottom of shaver. The outer case will then slide off the bottom. Push the trimmer up to be abl to take the circuit board out. BE CAREFUL not to detach trimmer oryou will not likely get it back on yourself.
Your battery(s) will be one of the two types below found at shaveroutlet.com

How to fix a Braun series 7 razor that will not charge in cleaning stand


Try plugging the cord directly into the shaver. If it charges this way, your clean and charge unit is bad. A replacement can be ordered from the link below

Can anyone help with some advice for home razor repair?


After dropping the razor it is very difficult to know what the problem is without examining it. Based on the symptoms you describe, I would guess that the the 'drive unit' is damaged. You will find this part available at shaveroutlet.com. See link below. Scroll down the page for installation help video

Looking to replace the head of a Braun 549 series. Can't find a replacement. Was told the 7000 series would fit and they aren't the same. Please help???

The razor head comes loose from the two arms.


The one piece motor drive which also contains the shaver head in the Braun wear out. They can be replaced by yourself or a shaver tech. A good place for parts, http://shaveroutlet.com/.

To disassemble the 7000 Series Braun shaver.

Disassembly of the 7000 Braun shaver is basically the same as the 8000 series Braun shaver listed below. The 7000 is actually easier to disassemble as the plastic is much thicker and the bottom socket cover pops right off as there are less tabs and they are bigger.

To disassemble the 8000 Braun Series shaver.

Remove the plastic cover on the bottom that covers the corded socket. Be careful, there are a total of two tabs on the short sides and four very small tabs on the long sides. I usedmy fingernail to create a space big enough to insert the corner of a credit card in the center of the long side opposite the blue light indicator, then gently removed the cover. Using a screwdriver could damage the plastic.

The two sides then pop off, they only fit on their respective side when replacing. Don't lose the two small black seals on the top of each side piece.

There are a total of four screws holding the body together. Remove the screws, using the proper flat blade or torx screwdriver. The shaver will then split into. You can then remove the the Motor Drive Unit and the separate circuit board with the batteries.

This would also be a good time to clean the goo buildup from around the shaver head.

Assembly is the reverse of above. The Motor Unit will only fit in one way, there is a flat side and a angular side. Be sure the pin for the trimmer is placed in its proper hole, or it won't extend.
