Question about Baby Gear

1 Answer

I bought a G2609 cradle swing, put it together, and opened up the battery pack to put in batteries, and noticed it was corroded, does any one have a simple fix for this? I tried to clean it with alcohol, but it is still not working! Thanks in advance for your help Angela

I presume you bought it used. If it is new and has a corroded battery compartment you should return it to where you bought it and get a new swing. You should scrape as much of the corrosion as possible off the battery contacts. Use steel wool or sandpaper to make the contacts shiny. Bend them carefully to make sure they are tight to the batteries. If the contacts are corroded to the point that they cannot be cleaned or if they break then the battery pack will have to be replaced. You may also be able to use a paste made of baking soda and water to remove some of the corrosion. If the swing does not work after the battery contacts are clean and new batteries are installed then there may be a problem in the wiring, in the switch or in the motor.

My Logitech mouse is wireless # CE0682 and the red light on the mouse is always flashing, even when on the receiver. I also have some problems when I want to use the mouse to hilight a block of text, as I...

Gina, I've had my Logitech ce 0682 for years and have had some similar problems. The mouse is supposed to rest in the cradle and recharge the batteries, but I've noticed that it rarely works for me. The connectors on the mouse seem to scuff and corrode easily and I'm sure that degrades its ability to charge batteries. So my solution was to buy a 4 pack of rayovac rechargable batteries(AA) and a usb battery charger. I never put my mouse in the cradle now and keep 2 batteries recharging at all times so I always have fresh batteries when that pesky red light comes up telling me the batteries are dying. As far as your highlighting text problem. Sorry don't have a solution on that one.

I have a standard swing cradle which I bought in Mothercare, I took it down from the attic and noticed I've lost all the screws to put it together, I was wondering If I can buy them anywhere?

Mothercare indicates that you can order spare parts from them, but they require that you order them directly from a local store.

They say that you can call a store to have them order the parts for you and the store will send them to you.

Here is a link to the store finder for Mothercare.
