Rechargeable-battery operation

set to 0·CHARGE during charging.
An 8-hour charge will provide ap-
prox. 30 minutes of use.

about 10 seconds, then switch the
trimmer on. After use, return the

Trimming of Beard
Place the angled face of the comb
against the skin and cut the beard
by moving the trimmer in all direc-
tions to obtain a uniform cut. (See
Fig. 5)
With curly facial hair, the comb
attachment may not cut all of the
hair. In this case, remove the comb
attachment and use a conventional
comb to draw out the remaining
uncut hair.
(See Fig. 6)
When shaping the beard, remove
the comb attachment. Place the
angled edge against the skin and
make the border of the beard even.
How to use the thinning function
(See Fig. 7)
First, slide the Thinning plate up
to “1/3” until it clicks. (See Fig. 2)
While applying the blade point at
right angles to the hair, run the
trimmer slowly across the head as
if combing the hair. After thinning,
slide the thinning plate back while
pushing the Thinning Plate Lock
Button. (See Fig.3)
Notes on thinning
For thinning, confirm that the thin-
ning plate is set to the 1/3 (right)
position.Incorrect setting may result
in excessive cutting.
If a difference in level is produced,
lightly thin to compensate.
If thick and thin portions are pro-
duced, or if there are portions with
an excessive amount of hair, thin
the appropriate portions to com-
Thin the hair gradually while check-
ing the overall balance.
1. Brush out the cutting mecha-
nism. (See Fig. 8)
2. Hold body of the trimmer with
Panasonic mark upwatds, place
the thumb against the blades,
and push them away from the
main body. (See Fig. 9)
3. Push down the cleaning lever
to raise the moving blade and
brush in between the blades.
(See Fig. 10)
4. Put a few drops of oil on the
blades. (See Fig. 11)
Blade Life

the frequency and length of use.
For example, using the unit for 10
minutes every 3 days, the life ex-
pectancy is approximately 3 years.
If cutting efficiency is reduced sub-
stantially despite proper mainte-
nance, the blades have exceeded
their service life and should be
changed. The replacement part
no. is ER965.
