What's wrong: Thomas ride on music is working moves a bit then stops

Hi I got my son this for Christmas and fully charged it, he looked at it for 5 mins and never looked at it again so I never charged it. I have since passed it on and getting told the music works and the train moves a little then stops. Could there be something wrong or does it just need a really good charge? Thank you

Hi, Batteries tend to fail on charging if not used for a while- try a really long charge and see - if it still fails to hold a charge - the re-chargable battery will need replacing.

The red button on the right must be held down for anything to move. It turns the lights on, makes some train noises, then moves forward. If you don't hold the button down, nothing will happen. Note that when the train is underway, the left red button becomes a train whistle. Otherwise, when the train is not running, that left button produces music. Hope this helps.

It might need a new wire connection to the motor.

It could be a bad switch or the music board has a bad contact.

My Thomas 6v Ride -On Train works, but VERY slow. It sounds like its really struggling to go. I have TWO fully charged batteries so I know its not the battery. Everything else on it works great...


It sounds to me like your battery needs to be replaced. The batteries lose their ability to hold a full charge after some time (especially if they've sat for a long while without a charge). You can get the battery tested at a trusted shop, but it might be more econimical to just replace the batteries with fresh batteries and see if that solves the problem. New batteries will charge much better and hold the charge much longer.

If it is brand new it will probably take a long time to charge up from the computer. It will need to be fully charged before the screen lights up.

I would check the battery voltage with a multimeter if possible. Battery should read at least 6 volts. Most likely the battery is too old to take a charge if it’s been sitting unused since 2006. I’d replace the battery first and then go from there.

Hi

Have you tried keep pressing the right hand button down. When you press the button down and hold the press, then the sounds are finished, the trains starts driving. When you release the button the train stops at once.

I cannot promise that this is the problem, but this is where mine was broken, and you may be able to fix yours this way.

I was able to remove the plastic around the tender and access the motor. Using alligator clips, I was able to connect the battery directly to the motor, bypassing the circuit board. The motor functioned, therefore the only component that seemed to be defective was the circuit board, located behind the speaker in the engine unit.

As far as I know, the only place to buy a replacement circuit board is from www.tigerimports.com. Search for part number MEVA0024. Cost is around $15 + shipping (around $6 or so).

I should be receiving this part by the end of the week and will report if it fixed the problem.

Thanks for using Fixya. If I didn't help your situation, please DO NOT label this advise as "inappropriate".
