Default A broken Philip's Shaver

Do you guys know how to repair Philip's shaver? I had a Philip Philishave HQ 4845, but I don't want to bother the wannraity thing because it was brought more than 6 years ago. It brought it in HK, and it worked great here in US. Untill one day, I pluged it in to wall and leave it for a day to recharge. IT dead on my when I try to turn it on. Now, like a year later, I attempted to fix it. I opened it up and found a resistor burned with black stain on the PCB. The motor is fine, but how can I know about the other compents condictions? and How can I fix it, if I say that only replacing the resistot.

Default Broken shaver


Your problem is typical on Philips shavers, One of the batteries inside
the machine is SHORTED.
Besides the resistor smoked you should replace the batteries or if
you want to use the unit only plugged in just cut the connection
of the batteries and use it with the AC only.

More than two years ago I had a similar problem with mine and this
was what I found out. I'm still using mine every day on AC only
because I didn't want to spend money on batteries.

Hope this helps

Hello, I'm new in this forum, I'm from Argentina. Here we use 220v. My problem is similar than S.C., I have the same Philishave (HQ 4845) and it's doesen't work. I can't understand well the explication that you gives to S.C. Can you help me?
I undertood that I must cut off the batteries and then use the wall's cable conector.

Thank for everything
