There seem to be just a couple of common failures on the presenters.
bad contacts (dirty) on the seat belt buckle receiver on the side of the seat
bad nylon gear in the presenter mechanism
buckle/unbuckle a couple of dozen times
The only way to really know the state of the nylon gear is to remove the side panels to look at it, but it's the most common failure.
