If it says 187 on the box, the batteries go in the coal car. You might want to check out the other instructions I've posted too ... it's finicky...
This train set is very particular and getting it to work each Christmas is a family tradition in frustration. First you must make sure that all the pieces of track are connected properly and that the track is perfectly symmetrical and flat. We double-check the battery positions every year and find one in wrong. There are + and - signs, but they're hard to see; use a flashlight. There is a black toggle switch below and behind the red stack that toggles forward (to make the train go forward) and backwards (reverse); straight out perpendicular to the train is the "stop" position. Also, you have to start at a stop/switch station. One other note: behind the red stack, there is a smaller black stack. If you turn this, you can make smoke come out of the stack. I think I remember someone suggesting a drop of cooking oil. Hope this helps!!! Hope you get it set up for Christmas!!!

I bought a universal remote control, put batteries in and nothing happens. T.V. does not recocnise remote.

You need to put the control code for the TV and other devices that you want the remote to operate
it will be in the instructions that came with the remote or on the website for the remote manufacturer on how to use the remote

Camera instructions


I'll tell you how I solved it. When I bought the camera, I was surprised to find the batteries were included, so I expected to find the SIM card also. But no, so I bought a card from a local shop. The assistant kindly set up the camera for me including putting in the date. Fine. But then I needed to recharge the batteries, so I lost the date. I tried to put in the date according to the instructions but failed. I took it back to the shop, where the assistant showed me how to do it. These differed from the instructions given in the paper. So why should I pay for your failing to give proper instructions?

But for free you can tell me what the MACRO does !

Wont turn on

Are you sure that your batteries were fully charged? I have the same issue when using shop bought aa batteries - or they don't last very long at all.

That 3 beeps and turning off is what should happen along with a "battery low" error message on the screen from experience.

When I bought the recommended charger and two batteries from Amazon - they lasted a lot longer. Search the website for the charger battery code suggested in the instructions.
