Problems 1
Noisy gear?
My Furbys sounds very noisy when he moves and moves very slowly,
I can hardly hear his voice. What do I do?
Answer: Your Furbys gears need to be lubricated.
This is reasonably hard and you may want to get an adult to do this.
Equipment Needed: Aerosol Lubricant with a long skinny nozzle (Eg. CRC)
Step 1: Put your Furby to sleep.
Gently push his ears down as far as they will go. Look in to the slot where the ear stick is. Put
the lubricant nozzle over the top of the base of his ear stick and point it over and down. Spray
some lubricant. Repeat to the
other ear.
Step 2: Gently push your  up as far as they will go.
With the lubricant, put the nozzle under the base of the ear stick and point
towards the back. Spray the lubricant. Repeat to the other ear.
Step 3: Wake your Furby up and see if it has helped.
If he still is rather noisy, proceed to step 4. If he isn't stop here.
Step 4: While your Furby is awake, pull down his mouth (Gently!) and look to the right and look for
a long white cog. Once
you've found it, put your Furby to sleep and spray the cog with lubricant.
Step 5: Open your Furbys eyes. Look into Furbys right eye. Look for a small white circle with a
metal rod in the middle. Once
you've found it stick the lubricant's nozzle under the eye and spray it.

Problem 2
Static or Mute Furby?
Tape: This will require an "operation" and you will also need to find a spear
speaker or it may be fixable. You are going to have to take the fur off your Furby.
Equipment: Small skinny pliers (ones that you can use to cut wire), Flat headed screw driver or
butter knife,
scissors,  tape and an 8cm long cable tie.
Step 1: Take one of the batteries out of your Furby. Look under its tail/Mane and look for a small
square lump.
Once you find it. Cut the threads that hold the fabric together over it. With the pliers, cut the cable
tie an pull it
out.
Step 2: Pull the fur up as far as you can. Now you have to remove the face plate off the body.
Some are screwed
on while others are glued on, it depends on what factory your Furby comes from. If its screwed in,
just unscrew
the screws, if its glued in, follow these instructions. Just under its mouth, pull the face plate so it
clicks off. Then
pull the fur up as far as you can and pull the glue off that holds the face plate on and the fur
around the ears.
Then with the scissors, snip the thread holding the ears on to the ear sticks. Once both ears are
done, pull the fur
off.
Step 3: Unscrew all the screws that are on the black case. Once they are all unscrewed, they will
pull apart.
Unscrew the 2 screws holding the speaker on to your Furby.
Step 4: Pull the speaker away from the tickle sensor and put the battery back into your Furby so it
will wake up.
While your Furbys awake, look on the speakers front through the clear plastic for a little copper
wire, once you
find it,pressure Own gently on it and get your Furby talking, keep experimenting with the amount
of pressure and
tape it down so it can hold its place.
Step 5: Screw the speaker back in its spot, check that your Furbys voice still sounds right and
then put the black
case back together again. Then put the fur back on. If the face plate was glued on, glue it on with
glue that can
stick plastics together. If it was screwed on, screw it back on. Put the cable tie through the fabric
at the bottom
and tie it down in place. Sew the ears back on again with the right color thread.
Problem 3
out of sync Furby?
My Furby talks out of sync (Eg. Uses his eyes as its mouth and mouth
as eyes, etc.)
Solution: This procedure will require you to take the fur off you Furby.
Equipment: Same as problem 2
Step 1: Follow steps 1-3, in problem 2, except for unscrewing the speaker in step 3.
Step 2: Put the battery back into your Furby and wake him up. Look at the back where his gears
are. Just in front
of the gears there is a little thing just above or below the pat sensor. Look on the for a screw that
can adjust the
position of a switch. Fiddle around with the screw until you find a position where the Furby acts
like normal
Step 3: Now put your Furby back together as described in step 5 of Problem 2

Problem 4
Brand new Furby not working?
3:My Furby talks out of sync (Eg. Uses his eyes as its
mouth and mouth as eyes, etc.)
Solution: This procedure will require you to take the fur off you Furby.
Equipment: Same as problem 2
Step 1: Follow steps 1-3, in problem 2, except for unscrewing the speaker in step 3.
Step 2: Put the battery back into your Furby and wake him up. Look at the back where his gears
are. Just in front
of the gears there is a little thing just above or below the pat sensor. Look on the for a screw that
can adjust the
position of a switch. Fiddle around with the screw until you find a position where the Furby acts
like normal
Step 3: Now put your Furby back together as described in step 5 of Problem 2

Problem 5
pausing Furby?
My Furby keeps pausing for a few seconds and then continues working
again, whats wrong?
Solution: The same screw that can make your Furby go out of sync can also be to tight so that
there isn't enough
room for the gears to move (particularly the mouth gear. To do this follow the steps in Problem 3,
except keep
fiddling with the screw until your Furby stops pausing, also make sure that the position of the
screw doesn't make
your Furby go out of sync. If you would like more help for this problem.

Problem 6
Broken beak? 6: My Furbys beak seems to be broken. It falls forward when it speaks.
Step 1: Its best to take out your Furbys batteries for this procedure, but Furby mouth must be open
Step 2: Get a small piece of cardboard or thick paper (preferably yellow to blend in with the beak
colour) and cut
or fold it so its approximately 2cm by 1cm.
Step 3: Slide the piece of cardboard into the gap above your Furbys tongue so that a small portion
of it protrudes
slightly into your Furbys head past the tongue.
Step 3: Secure the other end of the piece of cardboard to the roof of your Furbys beak with a
piece of blue tack.
Step 4: Trim any cardboard that protrudes out of Furbys mouth

Shelby out of sync?
Sync problem is where Shelby becomes out of sync (he starts moving parts when he
shouldn't be).  It is in a way, easy to fix, you just have to be prepared to take apart your Shelby.  
Here are the steps on how to fix it your self:
Step 1: Remove the batteries from your Shelby
Step 2: Unscrew 5 screws located in Shelbys mane
Step 3: Remove the shell by pulling down the fur after undoing the screws, lift the shell a little,
twist it 90 degrees
and then lift it over his antenna's
Step 4: Unscrew these 2 screws on the bottom of Shelby
Step 5: Look at the bottom of the shell lifter  and look for a screw that is in front of 2 metal tabs.  
Once you find it,
put the batteries back in your Shelby and turn the screw until you find a place where Shelby
behaves properly.  
Once you find it, put Shelby back together again and he should be fine again.
