Why isn't my 1998 furby working when I put new batteries in?

I have a 1998 furby and when I put in new batteries in it it won't start again even when I press the reset button!

I don't really want to take the fur off and touch the motor etc i was wondering if there was another way!

Can you please help me because I love my furby and I don't want it to die!

Have you checked to make sure the batteries make proper contact? Check for corrosion on the battery connector.? Also, when was the last time Furby worked?

- de

Yes they make proper contact and there's no corrosion on/in the battery compartment! The furby last worked properly about a week ago then I left it and turned it on yesterday and it was playing up!

- de

I have quite a few of the older furbys that i simply havent been able to confirm/fix the power getting through to furby and powering it up either.....

But have you opened it up and given it a "push start"? If no look online for how to get a "comatose" or the "lucky penny shop" guy had a helpful video on there too

I have 2 furby,s & all I can tell you is if you have put new battery,s in .

And fallowed the insturctions to reset ( they must be all new battery,s (4 new). I say this because a furby for some reason take a bit of juice to start up. And one bad battery will drain the other 3.

If new battery,s and resetting has not worked you must operate on the furby .There are a few sites that explain how . They are all very simple to do. I was nervous to do mine due to the fact It was the first time I had ever handled mine. He had been in his packaging since 1998 .I had got another at a yard sale and wanted to see two interact.

I took my time and it took a total of 30-45 min taking my time from start to finish. So just take your time and be gentle the operation will be a success.

One of the batteries may be dead; you could try putting brand new batteries in.

For battery corrosion :

Depending on how bad the corrosion is . Take about 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda . Plus a drop or two of water & make a paste. Don't make it too thick or to thin. But thinner is easier to put on then thick. Take a Q-tip & rub it all over the inside of furby,s battery compartment. Rub it all over real good . Now let it dry. Now take a old tooth brush and brush the baking soda out. A little bit of residue left won't hurt . Just make sure that the little metal battery,s are residue free .Battery needs to have a good cotact. Now that should do the trick. Unless it went on to long then you might have to do Furby surgery to make sure that everyting is still all conected on the inside where the battery wires come out of the battery box. But try this first if it doesn't work get back with.

Well actually none of these worked for mine but me and my brother have found out that some of the wires to this furby had been fried due to probably because of the way it was talking ( way too fast!) so what my brother and me have to do is also find the problem within the circuit board. I recommend looking for those type of furby fixing videos but to let u know most wont work.( i tried) but after all this im sure my furby will work again

I have a 1999 santa furby that won’t wake up, i’ve tried spinning his motor for hours, cleaned out the corrosion, hard reset him, tightened up his sync screw, cleaned the dust in his wiring, moved his eyes, ears and beak to loosen them, replaced batteries as i leave them in their as i put him laying on his tilt sensor to hopefully spring to life, I put tinfoil on his battery connectors, wires and circuit board and still nothing, He was working just last week, i got him at a antique store for 30 bucks and he worked in the store when i got him as i have had him now for almost a year.

I feel like I've tried everything and I really don’t want him to be a dead furby because I know he still has a lot of fight left in him.

Can anyone tell me what i'm doing wrong? Should i try to put some type of lubrication on his gears? Or?

if there was battery corrosion, check the wires to see if there is corrosion by looking at where the wires connect from the battery compartment to the circuit board. then, look to see if the metal contacts at where the wires connect have corrosion, I will reply according to your response. I want to rule out any possibility of there being poor contacts

Hi Olivia, I am the one that wrote the fixit link. I am more keen on the older furby,s . At some point the manufacturer changed them on the inside . I have 1 thats newer then a 98 . Not sure how much newer but newer. I had gotten it so mine would have a friend to talk to. Plus I wanted to see how they learn from each other. Not sure if thats true , had just heard it from someone. I had bought mine used at a yard sale . The person had no batteries said it worked . I figured even if it didn't , I had fixed mine I could this one. I wasn't so lucky. There alot different on the inside.

First thing I did was new good batteries like Durrcel or ones like them. Cheaper batteries don't seem to do well in furby,s. No luck, so them I tried some light weight grease. Something like the kind they use in a sewing machine. But unlike the older furby,s were you can sometimes gently wiggle the gears free the newer ones you cant. Or I should say I could not. Did not want to try to hard & break a tooth on a gear since they are plastic. I assume that maybe the manufacturer might have change them because customers did figure out how to fix them which cuts into sales . But I could be wrong . As far as were the batteries connect . Baking soda and vinegar and a tooth brush is the best thing if there is corrosion. And as far as using tin foil on the main board hopefully you didn't short anything out. Its very easy to do. Have you tried smelling the board to see if any thing smells burnt. Sometimes just because it looks fine doesn't mean it is . Sorry I couldn't help you more . Good luck hope you can revive him or her.
