HelloWelcome The unit will in no doubt be suffering from power-pack issues because of its age usually bad capacitors and bad regulators ,to be honest to attempt repairs is not an option on a unit like this you would be better off in the long run replacing it. I am sorry I do not have better nes for you but the advice is in your own interests, its not to say the unit cant be fixed it can but only if YOU do the work and that would mean using a meter and soldering iron, if you can do that I will be happy to help.

Hi Anthony, thank you for the response. i reckon the reason it stops from powering up is because it cannot self resolve an issue with the disc- i think the rubber is melted or come off. the only problem i failed at trying to open the 3-disc component. they seemed to be quite logged together with the electric (child) board and i could not disassemble the disc compartments. Anyway, could you perhaps help advise if i could sell the parts somehow as i'm sure they are in working order.?
