A Dead Reading Book Toy Was Brought Back To Life
This is one of the toys that my son wanted to give to his friend. I asked my son if the toy is working and he said yes it is but when I installed the batteries and tested the toy, it did not come one. I am glad I checked.
It is a nice toy and it looks like a folder then you add a book to it, press the button and it will read the book for you.
My son loved it very much but it was to move on.
It comes with a lot of books that you can add to this toy and actually reads them to you.
Something I noticed with I put the batteries in that one of the pins was rusty and when I tried to give a clean, it broke.
That is the book reader inside view of the board.
It looks very complicated. The repair is concentrated on the battery compartment.
With a needle nose plier I was able to pull up the metal sheet that connect two batteries together and replace it with a different but new one.
As you can see, the spring piece is broken and had to be replaced. The only replacement I could find is from a remote control pins.
This is the replacement pin.
The moment I installed the batteries, I could hear music coming out of the toy and to confirm it, I am getting 4.421 volts on my multi meter.
Red light is on, music on and the reading continues.
