1. battery issues (electronics): over time, batteries lose their ability to hold a charge. solution: replace the battery or adjust settings for more efficient power use.

2. overheating (electronics & appliances): caused by dust buildup or faulty fans. solution: regular cleaning and ensuring adequate ventilation.

3. error codes:

- e01: power supply issue. check connections and reset the device.

- e02: overheating detected. allow the device to cool and clean vents.

- e03: battery/charging fault. replace the battery or charger.

- e04: sensor malfunction. clean or replace the sensor.

- e05: software error. update or reinstall the software/firmware.

- e06: mechanical failure. inspect for obstructions or wear and tear.
