[ Edited ]
★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? Português
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.59.73.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? None.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Repair the radio equipment (named "Encantador de Síndicos" in pt-br). Other equipments can be fixed normally, like computers (I haven't tested them all).
What happens when the bug occurs? Sim tries to fix radio equipment (named "Encantador de Síndicos" in pt-br) forever without ever finishing or make it work again.
What do you expect to see? The Sim don't work forever, can fix the radio equipment, get success and make it works again.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. I don't know exactly. In the middle of last year, everything worked normally (last time I played)

Well, I hope to be doing it correctly!!

 

Thank you!!

@ReumaZika Did you add any unbreakable upgrades to that ? If so, did the equipment newly break after the newest patch ?

@crinrict  Yes, all upgrades were done, including one that said it's was unbreakable - but it break anyway.
Yes, I was playing yesterday; the radio was working perfectly when it break and I can't repair it.
My Sim have a trait that give to him a option "instant repair", and it don't work equally.

 

Happy 2020 fot you, too!!

@ReumaZika Try placing the radio in the household inventory and then move it back. That should fix it

Sad to hear unbreakable stuff still breaks, especially since you just have the base game and none of the usually stuff that break unbrakebales apply (rain, gnomes)

 

Could you post a picture of the object that broke ? To be sure which one it was.

@crinrict Of course!!

In the first image, see the sparks, showing it's broken; in the second, the options "Reparar" and "Reparo Instantâneo!" in red square ("Repair" and "Instant Repair", respectively) are available; and in the third, all updates are done.

I put the radio in the household inventory and return it, as you suggested, and nothing happened; it is still break and I fix it forever.

Edit: I think I uploaded the images in a "nonviable" way ... So I edited it and added it to the text.

 

Thank you!!

@ReumaZika Then you will probably need to replace it. The issue is that it shouldn't break in the first place cause you can't fix unbreakable stuff.

Thanks for the pictures.

@ReumaZika @crinrict   I see this in my game too but with the DJ Booth that have all upgrades.  My sims can repair the stereos and radios just fine.  Doesn't seem to matter which DJ Booth it is either.  The sim trying to repair one will just keep trying to repair it forever and it never gets fixed though any of the regular repair options.  The only time they will stop autonomously is if they get electrocuted too unless you cancel the action.  I've been replacing them when they break.  But I have found that a spellcaster with the Repairio spell from ROM will actually fix them so not all hope is lost.

@buddhachick Do you have any idea what broke the stereo ?

Possibilities:

- Ghosts ?

I'm not positive but it could be gnomes.  I have a ton of them and they tend to hang out under the stereo.  I usually either leave them alone or keep them happy though, so I"m not sure why they would break anything.  I tend to leave it turned on.  Could that break it?  I like the background music.
