Have you checked the contacts on the battery and trimmer encase they are corroded, and ensure the battery is clicking fully into place?

Expert:  James replied 14 days ago.

Without the information requested I can only provide generic advice at this time, but happy to elaborate once you provide the additional info. For now I hope you find this initial guidance useful.

Where the contacts are clean and battery firmly installed and confident battery is fully charged then the unit should be sent in for repair which can be arranged by calling 0333(###) ###-####/a>
