Push-Start a Comatose Furby
1 transistor FM spybug
I have one with plastic ears and no reset button that i can find. Its covering wont come off all the way because of the ears... How do i get it apart?
My daughter has a purple furby we went up north and it was in the trunk but now it will not turn on and the mouth is stuck open please help we've changed the batteries and pressed the reset button and nothing is working.
Got it ... But all I hear is gears moving can hardly hear the little thing talk.... Not as cool as I remember them to be .
I can not take the fur off . I even cracked the plastic trying !!! HELP
Thank you for the guide! Both of my Furbies made a full recovery! They thank you too! :D
I bought my crystal furby on ebay just before easter and now after what I thought needed new batteries, it wakes up, says something and falls asleep with no mechanics working , mouth doesn't move . I took fur off but the body seems to have a silver foil all around it so I'm afraid to go any further :-( . If only there were furby fixers to do it here.
believe name is Toh Loo Ka. Been asleep for 15 years and daughter now 32 is thrilled to have her son meet her. Thanks
I would like to know your process for taking and posting such excellent photos.. Thank you.. Now if you have any idea how to fix talking Pee Wee Herman :)
"Gizmo" furby was a special edition released by Tiger electronics back around 1999 or 2000. I figured out how to get into mine by undoing the seam down the back and had to cut the zip tie to be able to get the "arms" out. The arms are flexible wires that you can bend back out of the fur and then proceed as above. The body and "innards" are otherwise identical to a regular furby. Seems a little more destructive and will take more work to put him back together, but I couldn't figure out another way. Unfortunately I couldn't get mine "woken up" from his coma. :( I think he's really and truly dead. I've added some pictures in case anyone else has a Gizmo they need to get into. - SusanM101
Hi, thank you for your reply. I used screwdriver and had toforce it open but it works now perfectly. Thank you so much!!! - JitkaK1
I haven't seen the ones with arms so I'm not sure. When did they grow arms?
All of our Furbys' eyelids work off a friction type connection and can be easily moved by hand. However I would think they should realign themselves to be able to open on their own after some use. You could try to gently move them. I wouldnt hesitate with our Furbys but none of ours have been to college so i dont know if the graduate Furby is made the same lol. Good luck!
Your welcome glad to help!
Hi, Our 1999 Graduate Furby's eyes don't open. Otherwise it works perfectly (little noisy:-)))) Should I try to open them with force? Thank you.... - JitkaK1
Thank you, it worked! - JessicaW59
Hello, I have a gremlin furby that is stuck. This furby has arms that move so I can't pull the fur up like a regular furby. Any ideas?
thanks, but i am fairly sure it is not just the speaker. the speaker is soldered in but furby just buzzes now. he does not move at all. i have tried to push start him with no luck. if you have any other suggestion for freeing up his motor, they would be appreciated!
I'll paste this here too in case others are following....Sad to hear about your troubled Furby. Can you tell if the buzzing is coming from the speaker or the motor? That may provide a clue. I've never had one do that before. It's been a while since I've done open part surgery on these critters so I can't remember if the speaker plugs in or if it's soldered to the board. If it's a plug you may try very gently unplugging it and see if it still buzzes. Obviously if it buzzes with the speaker unhooked then it's something in the motor. If it's the speaker buzzing that doesn't sound good, maybe something wrong with the board.
help! fixed one furby but the the other one (which was fine before) started making a buzzing sound - no movement either. i have taken him apart, tried the jump start (white gear is in the down position already) turned & turned the black gear (to the right) but all he does is BUZZ! any suggestions???
