Hello my name is Freddy. I look forward to assisting and am very sorry to hear that you are having this problem.
If it is older the batteries may no longer be providing enough power for it.

Instead of rechargeable or alkaline batteries please try using lithium.
If this did not work please come back and let me know by clicking on reply to expert so we can continue.
If it did work please don’t forget to leave a positive rating it is greatly appreciated.
