I just looked at the schematic and the only problem is likely the charging, or external power connection not connecting the battery when the plug is removed. A bit of De-Oxit spray may resolve the problem, or the connector itself may need to be repaired/replaced. This happens a lot with this type of connector.

Battery back needs to be connected to the DVD player when charging. connect the batter pack to player. Run the DC/out from the battery pack to the DC/in in the player. plug the charger into the wall.

if that does not work, you have a bad battery

Hello pjbracht, I just responed to a duplicate of your problem. If they are new, return the battiers and confirm they are "by the book" replacements. If so ask for replacemrnts with a higher mAhr. It is not correct for vibration from a battery pack, lead, NiCad, Ni-MH, period.

SOURCE: Logitech MX1000 Laser Cordless Mouse, I replaced

Li-Ion battery and NiMh battery have completely different charging requirements! Li-Ion battery has much stricter charging requirement and the regulator is normally design to trickle charge at 0.1 Current rating @ 4.2V and then completely shut down.
WARNING: if you use a Ni-Mh charger on a Li-Ion battery, then it will erupt and even explode and catch fire!
Bottom line is that the rescued Li-ion regulator is not designed for your Ni-Mh pack and you will never get a full charge with it and you will need a completely different regulator board: you are better off putting in a suitably sized Li-Ion battery with inbuilt regulator but with higher current rating if possible.
Hope it helps! Let me know how you go.

Describe your Malibu 121W Power Pack Transformer ML121RT Problem my unit just fryed itself as I had a underwater light hooked up to it. however it took 3 years for this to happen plus I think I had more...


Power pack wattage has to match bulb wattage, or it shortens life of power pack.
I don't know physics and electrical engineering enough to know why this happens.
Also when working on bulbs, manual says to unplug power pack so it doesn't burn up.
If bulb is under water that's fine, but wiring cannot be underwater where it shorts out, or suspect this action might also shorten life of power pack.
With receipt, power pack could still be under warranty.

Unit is connected but wont turn on lights, socket is live and has power


Power packs don't have repair parts.
Check that bulbs are not all burned out ... if a few bulbs burn out, then power pack can burn out the rest and power pack also damaged.
People have written fixya reporting they took apart power pack, but nobody reports fixing a power pack once it has gone bad.

"Harry" wrote with a work-around if you can get manual override to turn on lights.
He bought cheap plug-in timer and plugged power pack into cheap timer.
Harry also said his power pack has 5 year warranty, and he was negotiating with Malibulights.com.

Best I found are tips for next power pack that might save money:
The reason I add tips now, is some fella wrote fixya.
He bought 500 Watt power pack to replace 300 Watt > thinking bigger was better.
Power pack burned out. Here's why:
a) Match wattage of bulbs with wattage of power pack
Lets say you have fifteen 20 watt bulbs = 300 watts, so install 300Watt power pack
b) Installing a 500W power pack on 300W of bulbs will burn out bulbs and power pack.
c) Replace bulbs as soon as they burn out or other bulbs will burn out and power pack will burn out.
d) When working on bulbs, unplug power pack or power pack may burn out.

Also take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you via e-mail while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

The lights stay on all the time and won't shut off. The front ones work fine but not the back lights. Any idea's? thanks,


Unfortunately when the power pack stops working there is no solution.
Your power pack has electricity so that is not the problem.
The bulbs turn on, so the bulbs are ok.
That means the power pack has malfunctioned, and needs to be replaced.

I did find some tips to help folks preserve their power packs:
1) Match wattage of bulbs with wattage of power pack
-15 each X 20 watt bulbs = 300 watts, so install 300Watt power pack
2) Installing a 500W power pack on 300W of bulbs will burn out bulbs and power pack.
3) Replace bulbs as soon as they burn out or other bulbs will burn out and power pack will burn out.
4) When working on bulbs, unplug power pack or it may burn out.

The transformer will work if I manually turn the dial. The dial will not automatically turn anymore.


If the bulbs turn on when you manually rotate dial, then the power pack has electricity.
A lot of people ask for replacement Malibu tripper pins on Fixya, and it sounds like your trippers are working fine.
If clock has stopped rotating, that means the power pack has malfunctioned, and needs to be replaced.

Camera wont eject photo when picture is taken.


This is due to an old photo pack as they're all past the use by date now: the battery built in to it had just enough power to eject the protection sheet and take a photo, but then went flat. There's nothing you can do to remedy this unless you fit an external battery pack. There are no kits to do this with, you have to rig something up on a DIY basis but it is fairly simple with a few basic tools and a little ingenuity. The original batteries were 6v and the camera works at 4.5v; the higher voltage gives a bit of leeway as the battery slowly discharges whilst the film pack is stored and unused.

My toshiba laptop l10 281 has stopped working it was working perfectly and was shut down properly wen i went to turn it on again today it wont go it wont even light up please help!! thanks in advance john


If nothing at all works then perhaps you have no power to the system.

Check that the powerpack is getting power (does it hum or get warm when plugged into the mains socket?) Check all connections to the power pack and back of laptop.

Try taking the battery out and powering up on only the power pack

Do you know anyone with a similar laptop that you could swap power pack with?

Battery pack charge


From your description, it sounds like a bad battery pack. You may find it hard to locate one, maybe check on Ebay every once in a while, or take the pack apart and see what kind of cells are in it.

Probably not what you wanted to hear, but replacing the pack will probably fix it.

Hope that helps...

Won't turn on - lights appear for a second then nothing


Probably a poor power connection either where the AC pack goes in to the wall (probably powerbar!) or where the plug from the power pack goes into the unit. Wiggle the various connectors to see which one solves the problem. As a last resort you may have a faulty power pack (try ask a dealer or friend to test your system on their power pack).
