Question about Hasbro I-DOG AMP'D

1 Answer

Motion Won't Turn Off

So the manual says I can turn off all the noisy motion and barking and just use the dog as a speaker (with lights) this is what I bought it for... but I follow the instructions to turn off motion and I have to do it like 20 times before it works. It says (while it's playing music) to press down on the tail and press the noise while holding the tail down. It's supposed to display a spinning light pattern when you've done it successfully. I've tried pressing down the tail and pressing IN the tail. I've tried quick taps to the nose and holding the nose down longer. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to why it sometimes works and sometimes it doesn't. Anyone have any tips for getting this to work?

    I follow the operator manual instructions and it keeps on dancing! How do I stop the bugger dancing?

  • Anonymous Feb 20, 2009

    I keep pressing the tail in. but nothing seems to happen. While the music is playing if you nudge the tail up or down it's to raise or lower the volume.

The trick to this is to catch the dog while just playing the music and not while dancing. What this means is that his foot must be down and not moving. Very often he will pause dancing with his foot up, however this is considered "mid-cycle" and he will ignore his stop command. When his foot is down waggle the tail towards his rear. This will produce all but one light turning red and a little beep to indicate him ready for a command. While holding the tail push the nose button for about a second, not long enough to turn him off but more than a quick tap. If his foot is down and music is playing he should respond.

Just installed a motion activated light (model 021746). The light will not turn off; there is no switch.


in the installation notes , it probably reads to this effect
to run the light all the time --switch of power supply and switch on
to run a light sensor - turn the power off , back on back off back on
one action changes the internal program to leaving the light on , the other activates the sensor mode
the switch is the light switch that controls power to the unit

The motion light says it has a manual override. I thought this was to be able to turn the light on so it wont shut off until I turn it off. Is this what the manual override means?


Good afternoon Amanda

There is a 'Dusk to Dawn' mode in these lights in which it will turn on continuously for 6 hours once it senses dusk, and then go back to the automated sensing mode for the rest of the night. This is triggered by turning power on and off twice within three seconds. See the manual here (
Defiant MST18920lwdf Use And Care Manual Feature Selection Troubleshooting )

If you follow this link, there is a forum with the same question and a walk-through of how to toggle the switch for manual mode.

That should get you off to the races. Good Luck!

Do you have a wiring diagram to wire a security motion detection light between 2 3-way switches so switches can be turned: (on-Motion)/(on- Completely) from 2 differemt locations?


One of the switches needs to be a 4-way then the PIR will act as any other switch. The downfall is if the lights are on and motion is sensed they will turn off.

My preference is to connect the contacts of the security device across the travelers of the three way circuit. The travelers are probably the red and black in the three conductor cable. When motion is detected the lights will turn on regardless of the settings of the three way switches then after timeout they will turn off. If they are turned on with one of the three way switches nothing will happen when the motion detector turns on except you cannot turn the lights off until the security device has turned off.

I hope this helps. The motion contacts need to be isolated from the motion detector power.

I want to replace my existing single bulb porch light with a 2 bulb motion activated light. It would be operated with the existing switch. Is this ok to do?


Yes. Must keep switch turned ON.
Outdoor lights will only come on when motion is detected, otherwise light bulb does not come on. So the indoor wall switch does not work as override since the motion sensor takes over as the sole switch.
Copy following link for wiring illustrations:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-occupancy-switch.html#motion
Other solutions include adding separate motion sensor light nearby and keep porch light so you can turn on-off when desired.
Another option is to add photocell to outdoor light so it turns on automatically at dusk.
Another option is to use outdoor yard timer with dawn-dusk capability:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#outdoor
Another option is to replace indoor wall switch with with dawn-dusk timer, that can also be used as ordinary on-off switch so you can turn porch light on-off when desired. Timer such as Intermatic ST01C offers simple 2-wire connection.:

Motion sensor outdoor light won't go off


How long has this been going on? Has this light fixture been updated recently? Has the lite switch been changed that operates this fixture?

Which model are you using? Creative 4.5?, On the newer machines it drops automatically once the embroidery attachment is hooked up. On older Creatives v2.x there is a slide lever in front of the presser foot on the front.

The remaining 3-way switch needs a jumper wire.
See if your instruction manual shows the same thing as image below.
Let's go through this.
The yellow wire connects to a traveler ... and that traveler connects to one of the brass screws on 3-way switch.
The black wire from Motion sensor also connects to a traveler wire ... BUT you have to identify which traveler wire and which brass screw that traveler wire connects to. And then, put a jumper wire (a short piece of wire) from that brass screw to the dark-colored screw.
I think that will do it.
Add a comment if your device is different.

Some of these electronic devices are reversed when two of their wires are connected together.
That's what the jumper wire is doing. So the 3-way switch is just connecting and disconnecting the black and yellow wires, and that action reverses the circuit in the motion device.

We have an audi a4 and the alarm keeps going off for no reason- what should we do- please help


On an Audi with the simple alarm system (no motion sensor and no disarm button on door centerpost) the fuse cannot be pulled without also disabling the power door locks. You may also have problems with your license plate, back up or fog lights. I tracked my car alarm and light problem to the wiring to the trunk lid on the driver side. The wiring is enclosed in a sleeve and attached to the two parts of the hinge with a free section in the middle to bend as the trunk opens and closes. Inside this bending section I found the separate wires either broken completely or the insulation cracked, creating intermittent shorts and activating the alarm. I reconnected and taped the insulation and the problem was solved.
