I have a DC that I bought right at the end of production to replace a broken one and it has problem which could be motor related.
It will boot up and load a game, play for a random amount of time and then the disk will stop spinning and it returns to the main menu, then the game will load up again almost immediately and play for another random amount of time. It will repeat this over and over. Sometimes a game will run for 5 minutes before restarting and sometimes it will go for an hour or more. the interval between restarts seems to get longer if the machine has been on for a while.
This may be because of s problem with the thing that holds the lid down because if you open the lid the game stops.
you may need to get something to hold it down
i had this problem once. i just put th DC upside down and it was fine. for a while.
i just used a new power lead and its fine now
Its the lid contact, if you take the top case off the dreamcast (4 screws, one is under the modem), you can see this microswitch on the top right. The problem seems to be that it works OK but the contact becomes dodgy, pushed in too far it loses contact. Shaving a bit off the top of this switch could work so that it contacts a bit lower on a "good" bit of track, but your mileage may vary. alternatively you could short the switch and you'd have to use the power button to change disks. Not ideal for multi disk games!

I don't know if it burned out, but something is not right. Malibu products come with 1-5 year warranty. New product that stopped working should be exchanged for full replacement at place of purchase, except possibly the auction sites. New Malibu product should work for many years. Be sure to match bulb voltage with transformer voltage to avoid possible problems. Mismatched bulb and transformer wattage should not affect a timer in short period such as 1 week. Another thing to check is outlet polarity. Use circuit analyzer from home center to check outlet. http://waterheatertimer.org/Malibu-power-pack-stopped-working.html
The 25-character product key is found either:
* on the packaging if you purchased the software at a retail store,
* in your E-mail, if you made an online purchase.
If you recently bought a new computer, it could have had a "trial" version of MS Publisher installed. After the end of the trial-period, usually 30 to 60 days, you must either stop using the software, or follow the on-screen instructions to make an online purchase of a license-key.
ismail the charger you bought should do the job. By stop charging do you mean the light on the charger turns from yellow to green? Your scooter has small batteries 12/12 and don't require along period of charging. Now the scooter has a heat sensor for the batteries and will cut off charging when temp of the batteries gets too high. The older charger could have overcharged your batteries and made them weaker instead of stronger. I would suggest you replace the batteries (2 12/12AH) and charge them with the new charger. Remember to reinstall the heat sensors on each battery when replacing. If you have a digital voltmeter set it to 200 v dc and put the leads into the 2 outer plugs in the charger port on the battery pack. You should read 24-26 volts dc when the batteries are fully charged anything less would mean weak batteries. Hope this helps you
When you purchased the computer, a "trial" version of the software was pre-loaded. After the end of the trial-period, typically 30 days, you either have to stop using the software, or buy a product-key, either from your local computer-store, or by using your credit-card on Microsoft's E-commerce web-site, to authorize further usage of the software.
First call the place you bought it say what they say about a replacement. If no luck goto nintendo.com and goto there support section they will have a number for you to call. This is something needing replacement. Nintendo's usual pretty good at doing replacements.
I purchased a Leapfrog Leapster in end of June sales last year for my daughter's birthday in October 2008. When she first turned it on it froze but after restarting played fine for 2 hrs then died and refused to work again. Fortunately I had kept my receipt (Target) but was still worried about it having been 4 months prior. They ended up giving me a store credit as they no more in stock at that store and I picked one up from another Target without having to pay the difference between my original sale price. I know you don't have the receipt but you could contact the place of purchase and ask them even if they are able to send off for repairs or put you in contact with the right people. Hope it helps a little ...
