When was the last time it was serviced? The movement probably needs a good cleaning and/or oiling

SOURCE: the clock is supposed to play songs every 30

This would have to be inspected by a qualified clock repairman. There are several problem that could cause this.

If you have any further questions please let me know.

Many thanks!

How do I set the Chimes on the Ergo Westminster Clock


The controls on the back of the Ergo brand Wall Chime Clock are different than that of the Seiko. I'm not sure who makes the movement - probably Chinese or Asian. Anyway, always take the pendulum off the hook before moving the clock about as it can damage the mechanism. On the back, there is a dial for adjusting the time setting of the clock hands, which is awkward to use, but does work, easiest to leave it alone and use the minute hand, NEVER the hour hand. There is a dial for volume. There is a switch for type of chime - Westminster or Wittington. There is the night-time shut off or volume reduction. Some models have a switch for chiming every quarter hour. My advice is make sure you have fresh batteries, and set the switches on the back for the settings you want. Hang the clock, grasp the pendulum arm and re-hang the pendulum, making sure it's hooked in properly. Now, whatever the hands say the time is, ignore it for now, and gently move the minute hand backwards, slowly, to about 5 minutes before the top of the hour, then forwards to a couple of minutes past the top of the hour. This will cause the chimes to start. Let the melody play, then listen for how many "clangs" you get. That will tell you what the clock thinks the time is. For example, if it "dongs" 5 times, and you've set it to run silent at night, the clock thinks it's 5 p.m. If it's actually only 3:15 p.m., then gently run the minute hand backwards til the hands indicate about 10 minutes behind the correct time (it'll take you several minutes to complete the process) then gently move the minute hand back to about 5 minutes before the top of the hour, then forward to a few minutes past, and the chime will start to play the melody. If you let it, it will play out the full melody, then it will "clang" one more time than your previous test. Each time you move the minute hand back to 5 minutes before the hour, it advances the chimes by one hour. Here's a tip - you don't have to let the melody and "clangs" play fully, each time, once you know how it works. If you have it set to run silent at night (pre-programmed to silence after 10 p.m. to 6 p.m.), keep moving the minute hand back to 5 minutes before the hour, keeping track of how many times you've done it until you reach 10 p.m., or not, until you get to the point where you move the minute hand back and there's silence. At that point, the auto-silence mechanism is active, and the clock thinks it 11 p.m. So, from that point, keep repeating the process of gently moving the minute hand back and forth, from about 5 minutes to the hour, to a few minutes past, keeping track of how many times you've done it. After 8 sequences, you hear it start to chime again, at 6 a.m. So, at that point, go through the back-up and advancing of the minute hand sequence 9 more times, and on the 9th time, let the melody play, and let in "clang" to determine that you're indeed at 3 p.m., which you should be. Then simply gently advance the minute hand to the correct time, 3:10, 3:12, whatever, and you're done. You'll know for certain soon enough.

I have a casio lk-44. I want to be able to play a song from the songbank, but just hear the background rhythm and not the melodies. I want to play the melody myself from the songbank. When I pick a song...


Not sure if your "booklet" is the full user manual... if not go to this site and go through their "hoops" and download the full user manual. It shows how to put the unit in the mode that merely lights the keys and plays the rhythm, unlike the "demo" mode.

Note the manual is free via the Retrevo site... just have some of those annoying hoopps like email address and entering numbers.

My Sansa Fuze stops and starts songs repeatedly during play mode, the icon still says the song is playing but no matter what I do it stops and starts on it's own


Could it be that the intro-play setting in on. I've noticed that once they intro-play setting it on, it starts the song and stops, then plays another one.

My ipod plays the song for the first 10 seconds how can i stop th


go in to your settings and check all of them there should be one that says intro or something to that sort if its not in the settings it might be in the play mode but you disable that and it will play the whole song again. Its because intro is a feature on the I pod and other mp3s that lets you listen to the first ten seconds of the song to see if thats the song you want to hear. Hope this helps you out

MP3 player plays 10 seconds of a song and stops


Your MP3 Player is in the Intro Play Mode. This is just a preview mode where it'll play the beginning of a song. If you hit the menu button (but don't hold it) while the song is playing, it should bring up the music submenu. From there, go to Play Mode and select any mode except Intro. Generally though, you'll want it on Repeat All or something of the like. Random is also good if you can't figure out what to listen to.
Hope this helped :)
