I have a Bugaboo Bee only 5 months old and the handlebar clip is broken and stays open, instead of clipping closed. It was really stiff when we first got the Bee, but then loosened up beautifully, now it is loose and sloppy!
When we set up the Bee, I have to lean way over the Bee and hold it from under the handlebar area on both sides so it clips into place securely. Not good for the 'ol back! Not at all elegant like in the Bugaboo Bee video on youtube! The clip is rivetted on so it looks like we will need to send back the whole chassis for replacement. We are in Australia and this is causing shipping issues with Bugaboo USA. Do you know if we can fix this fault on the Bee? My husband is very handy and a bit of an sound engineering genius, but we don't want to do any damage...just want to fix it, and be back motoring along safely with our little guy. Hels
I to had this problem, my problem was i also lost proof of purchase so couldnt get a new chassis, Bugaboo even though the prams havent been out for two years wouldnt replace so i had to try and either fix the pram or buy a new chassis for £235. I then read on the internet about how to remove the rivets on the chassis, you need a rivet gun and a drill the problem was the rubber had broken and fallen way down the pram chassis and if you can replace this with some new rubber the chassis is good to go (just make sure you do this slowly so you can see what part goes back where), you need to buy new rivets as when you remove the old olds these are no longer useable, i am soo happy i tried to fix this, it took me and my sister 1/2 hour and saved me £235 (the price quoted by Bugaboo for a new chassis). Hey hope this helps anyone and saves you having to line Bugaboo pockets, hey theres a clearly a niche in the market as Bugaboo do not have a work shop, they clearly want you to keep spending!!!!

I have the same issue. The power comes on but no sound goes to the AU meters or Output. I have fixed dozens of cold solder joints on the circuit board but it did not fix it. I now am removing the RB1716AB board from the transformer and noticed the black retaining clips are broken. Intermittent connections? Maybe trying to get the clips now.
Hi, If you are talking about a computer cd rom then it is just just a matter of looking for the " PIN HOLE " located somewhere on the cd drawers front. Take a needle or straightened out paper clip and insert it into the pinhole, you should feel a little click and the drawer should pop out a little. Then you just pull out the drawer. If the broken cd is blocking the drawers movement severely it may be necessary to try and shake it into a position where it will open. Good luck, I hope this was of some help and thanks for choosing FixYa, Prodzilla
"Splice the broken end to the take up reel of a newly bought cassette that you can open. open the new cassette, trash the interior If you can't move the old reels to the new mechanism: tape one side of the broken cassette's tape to the new take up reel close the new cassette (do not open or break the old cassette if it's not already done) insert a pencil into the gizmo on the take up reel on the new cassette, reel up the old cassettes tape into the new cassette re open the new cassette splice the other end to the new cassette's gizmo close the new cassette record the contents to digital"
I also had the very same problem.....I followed the instructed already posted indicating that it was a speaker problem....Instead of disconnecting all speakers at once, I went pair by pair.....and tried to turn it on and see if unit then would stayed on...not really...I continued with the same process....until I got to the last set of speakers....to no avail...
Eureka!.....a few minutes, say 5 or 10.....I turned on the unit and stayed ON!! ! ! ! ! !
Than I re-connected all speakers......and the unit is working fine.
I was at the point of purchasing a new one........to this day I do not have a clue of what caused the unit to go into "protective mode".....
Folks, try this route......and it worked for me....It was a matter of luck...perhaps...I do not know.
I figured that that the earphones were pretty old, so if my 'repair' didn't work I would just replace them with new ones.
There is a groove filled with acoustic foam that runs right around each earcup that terminates at the cord's entry point. After removing the headband yoke by carefully popping it out of each earcup I simply gripped both sides of the earcup and applied outward pressure until the front and back halves separated. Fortunately they are held together by plastic clips that snap apart. Once I had located the fault in the cable and repaired it the earcup halves easily snapped back into place.
I now have a functioning set of headphones again!
Different circuit boards are involved here, and what you propose would be cost-prohibitive in that you would have to come up with a 45 board, or rework the old board(very tedious!). Take the plunge and stay the course on factory built items in this case...accordianman
take cover off . look for the power supply,just above that to the left is a little black box,its where the clicking is coming from.take the cover of the black box. if you tri to turn it on it will click and spark but want stay together.so take screwdriver and push the end, in untill it stays, it may take a minut.when it does it will power up. i have the same unit with the same problem and got it to work like this. now it works fine.i did this just to what would happen,nothing to lose.
