If you have a dvd lens cleaner tried to clean it first. if still no disc error, look for the spindle motor if it is rotating while you are playing with a disc. if not, check for motor worn out at this time you will need to remove the cover to access the internal part.

Take your batteries out, and take them down to .a battery shop. Have the battery load tested, Reading the voltage under no load conditions will not tell you much, normally the batteries voltage gives you its state of charge. These batteries will show a full charge at no load, as soon as you put any load at all on the voltage drops off and you don't have much in amperage output. The amperage is what is important when you right down to it. When load testing your battery they will use an instrument that they punch in the cranking amps. The instrument will look for the voltage drop off at a load of what ever amp value you punched into the instrument. The instrument will give you a pass\fail indication for the cranking amps value the technician punched into the keypad. There can be a problem when load testing batteries. The technician doesn't key in a amperage value, This is what happened to me. The instrument when no value is entered will use a default value, Say the default amperage is usually set at around 200 Cranking amps. My technician was either rushed or just being lazy. He set the load tester to use the default values, my battery passed with the tester set up the way it was. My battery is a 35 amp\hr battery and puts out 480 cranking amps In actuality my batteries weren't putting out nearly that much. It would put out 265 cranking amps for about 2 seconds then die. He told me the batteries were good. When i brought the batteries back to him
i didn't let him take them into thee back room. THIS TIME HE DID THE CHECKS OUT IN PLAIN SIGHT OF ME. I asked to do a comparison between my batteries and new ones. We had to retest a number of time in order to find the upper limit of the new batteries. As it turned out my batteries were bad and all my problems disappeared with my old batteries. NOTE, scooters use deep cycle batteries only Glass mate batteries if you want to take your scooter on a flight.

Now if you had your batteries load tested and you know their good, its got to be the charger thats malfunctioning. Check the charger connection points make sure there tight. One connector should go to the negative battery terminal, the other connector should go too the positive terminal and read +24v. Make sure the connections are solid. Hope this helps

How long does it take to charge a battery? There are allot of variables to this but generally speaking if a charger is a four amp charger and you got a 35amp/hr battery it will take roughly 8 hrs to charge. Batteries typically don't like to be cold. My batteries are 35amp/hr my scooter will go 25 miles @ a max speed of 6 mph. The run time is roughly 5.5 hrs with a draw of about 6amps

Nakamichi cd cassette player 1 not spinning discs


There's a Music Bank 7-disc player in use in my bedroom these days. Nice unit, but they used to come in for service once in a while- from what I could tell, these units don't 'park' the CD drawers on a soft power off- they simply shut down. When powered up again, they sometimes let the disc last in play slide off the tray & jam the machine. I've had no issues, as long as I always hit stop, wait for it to park, and then shut off. The analog output's sound has been very good (has a coax out as well).

The battery is charged, but there is no turnover, just a continuous clicking sound.


sometimes a battery will go bad even though it shows 12 volts it hasn't got the cranking amps to fully engage the starter. Try another battery and if you still have the problem you will need to replace or rebuild the starter

Mines, two or three years old and doing the exact same thing, you ever figure out what happen or how to fix it? I took the battery out and it reads 16 volts. I put a 2 amp load (fan) on it and it pulls fine, so I'm reluctant to buy a new battery pack for it now.
