if you have the same on as I do, gently pull off his head - there is a large dial that you turn to unlock him into the standing position.

good luck

SOURCE: I have a walmart dancing

The shoe is held onto the base with four small screws. With Santa placed on his back, remove the screws and lifting up the shoe to look at the PCB hidden below it. Each set of wires going up into Santa connected to the PCB via a mated connector. There check the wires.Remove this wires and reconnect.

Check the wires as follows:--

GREEN/BLUE pair: This is used to activate Santa's side-to-side 'dancing' motion. The green connection is ground. The blue connection had 7.5 volts DC. But when you measure it again at a different time, the blue connection will show 12 volts. This is why there is mystery potentiometer to control the voltage.

Now how the potentiometer is connected and how it controls is as follows:---

GREEN/GREEN pair to potentiometer: It seems that this variable resistor controls the speed of Santa's side-to-side "dancing". Turn it low, and you'll get a performance worthy of a nursing home. Turn it high, and it'll be jerky and could topple Santa over given the right conditions. Effective voltage range to the motor (which controls the speed) seems to go from 5 to 12 volts.

------------------

the motors and speakers are analog devices that are connected to the main PCB.

the main PCB actually acts as a digital to analog converter, and the real smarts of the Santa are in a tiny little computer chip.


Santa's personality chip.

Soldered onto the main board and sticking up from it at a 90 degree angle is a small 15 pin PCB with a single custom IC. This contains the 'personality' of the Santa. All the sounds are recorded on the board, and all the actions are digitally recorded.

Remove the small board, and you have direct access to Santa's digital controls. This makes it very easy to operate from a microcontroller or even a home PC. Going through the digital controls, you take advantage of the built-in motor control electronics, volume control, motion sensor (and motion sensor enable/disable switch), and start/stop button.

--------------------------

Now here the motor connections needs to be checked.Also for internal pcb and motor connections step by step.Click this link directly and read the instructions.

My dancing Santa needs a power cord where can I order or buy ? Thanks


See if you can find the correct voltage input. It should be printed close to where you plug it in. Also note the type of plug that it has.
You can then get a matching power supply or a universal power supply from most any store that has an electronic department.

Singing dancing Santa won't stop dancing


My neighbor just gave me 1 of these... needed the adapter... 4.5 Volt 800 mA and be sure to get one where you can reverse the polarity if necessary. (polarity is: + ---O---- - ) I had to do some "modifications" to the base as my adapter had an "L" base & wasn't long enough - straight adapter would have been better... Santa wouldn't stop singing/dancing- hmmm. Cleaned the motion sensor lens and then had to cover the modification hole in the base to completely darken the interior of the base. Viola now the motion sensor works... is driving the dog crazy!!
