Question about Matchbox Pee Wee Herman Magic Screen & Scooter & Helmet

Open Question

Pee Pee's 18" matchbox "I talk" doll quotes come out squeeky.

When string is pulled the language is speeded up and indecernable.
Can this be fixed? My daughter is distraught and wants to hear Pee
Wee say his famous quotes.

Jessie doll string in the pulled position


Sometimes you can get the string cord to release and retract back. Hold the doll firmly and gently pull the string out about an extra two or three millimetres (eighth of an inch) or as much as possible. Keep the string tight for a short while and then allow it to retract slowly. It may take a few attempts, the skill is in pulling the string that little extra distance, holding it for a few moments, then slowly releasing it again.

You will have to remove the outside covering material to get access to the box, then open up the box (if possible) to replace the pull string. Check operation before covering up again.

My grandaughter's new jessie doll quit speaking. i don't know if it uses batteries or if the speach comes from a player energized by the pull of the string. is there any way to get the clothes off...


Truthfully, most of the time, you cannot take the clothes off of a Jessie doll. No matter what company, they will always stick to the body, including the boots. Sure, you can take the hat off, but not anything else. If she has stopped speaking, she needs new batteries. THANK YOU!

HI I BOUGHT A 1969 TALKING SERVICE STATION BUT THE PULL STRING IS JAMMED PULLED OUT HOW DO I FIX THIS AND GET IT TO TSLK AGAIN


mcdevito75 here, you may not be able to as the spring on the pull string may have lost it"s tension or the pull string mechanism is just stuck. You may not even be able to get at the mechanism if it"s a sealed unit, if you can get at the mechanism a little penetrating oil may help. Contact the toy manufacturer online or phone for more help.

Disney Talking Woody Doll - String stuck in pulled position


A friend of ours gave our son a hand-me-down Woody doll with no string at all. I decided to see if I could fix it...about 4 hours, 1 soldering iron, and the realization that my eyes are failing faster than I thought, I was able to return Woody's voice. I'm sorry I didn't take any pictures, but here's what you'll need to do depending on what you find as you operate.


0. Perform of these steps over some sort of container to be sure that you don't lose any of the small pieces that may be liberated in this operation (particularly a small spring that comes later).
1. Take out the battery pack through his lumbar Velcro. There is a black wire that carries power into Woody's thoracic cavity to a module that houses the electronics.
2. You will have to untie, or otherwise get the string through the hole in Woody's back so you can work on it...I don't know what's at the pull end of the string since the Woody we inherited had no visible string.
3. Cut open the white fabric inside Woody that separates battery pack from the electronics module.
4. Take out the two screws that hold the two halves of the module together. CAREFULLY separate these as there are a couple of wires that run between the half with the electronics and the half with the speaker.
5. If you are lucky, which I was not, all the wires will be intact and you will only have to restring Woody. (Nervous sytem work (i.e. wiring) will require a soldering iron and perhaps the assistance of an additional set of hands...)
6. The string is wrapped around a spindle which is spring loaded on one side (it's the big spring - not the little one). With the spindle side of the module towards you (big spring to the lef), the string *should* come up in front of the spindle, over the top and down through the hole..at least think it should. Again the string was broken in ours and once I opened the module, I couldn't tell which way it was originally.
7. On the right side of the spindle is the mechanism that completes the circuit when the spring is pulled. This includes a small spring, and metal piece that makes intermittent contact when the spindle winds back up after pulled.

So, depending on what you see when you take the module and battery pack out you may find:

0. Oh, of course, replace the batteries just to be safe.
1. The string was just hung up in Woody's back and simply removing the module allowed it to be come free again. Piece of cake.
2. The string was bound up around the spindle in which case you just need to clear it and be sure that it winds up properly when pulled. You may need to rewind the string, in which case you need to lift the right side of the spindle (take care to observe how the spring and metal piece are configured...and DON'T LOSE THE SPRING..it took my 10 year old daughter's eagle eyes 5 minutes to find it after it went shooting off the table)
3. The spring mechanism is somehow stuck. This will require tweezers and some patience to sort out the cause.
4. You may have to replace the string. I found some laying around the house that was close to the small shred that remained in our Woody.
5. Finally, I actually had to solder down 3 wires to get the circuit to work. If you're in this predicament, let me know and I will draw a picture for you of what goes where.

In the end, I got Woody to talk again, though he tends to speak without being pulled from time to time. But I gotta tell you, the feeling I got when he burst out with, "Howdy partner, my name's Woody!" was about the best feeling I've had in a long time.

Good luck, and let me know if you need any more information.

Shawn
