My first posting -- Hello everyone. I have the same problem -- my Nicro Day/Night has died. It will spin in the bright sunlight, but the battery will never charge (I have recently installed a fresh one of proper amperage). A fresh battery will run the motor well. So, I have a couple of questions: First, can a solar array die; it looks as if the motor works if it gets enough juice, so I wonder if this solar panel is dying. Second, if it is the motor that is requiring too much juice to run and is itself kaput, how in the world do get down into the motor housing to do the recommended surgery. In my unit, the clear plastic assembly appears firmly affixed to the white plastic cover. Can the clear plastic assembly be separated from the white plastic cover in order to do the necessary cutting in order to replace the motor? Thanks - David
