Question about Uncle Milton Toys

Hello, I have a Homestar optical star projection system. It used to rotate the projection of the stars and has stopped. The projection remains stationary. I looked thru the slot where the projection disk is placed and can't seem to find anything wrong..Any ideas? Best Regrds, Corey McDaniel

The rotation is done by a small motor - if you can't hear it then it has stopped working.  The projector is put together with screws so take it apart and find out why it has stopped working - either the motor is no longer powered or the switch is defective - a simple multimeter is needed to check it.

    As a said - get a screwdriver, take the unit apart and check the motor that is turning the platter.

The screen looks like it has stars in the background.


It sounds either like an issue with the optical light engine or less likely with the main digital board----

Cannot see thru optics. ifr comes on but still cannot see any image? can the back of the night vision come off to check the power illum light?


Hello, so the image intensifier tube light up. Shake it and listen for parts raddle around inside.
How long have you own this Night Owl? Have you been using night vision on bright lights?
If you have the intensifier tube is gone back to the Red Star....it died! The IR operates on a different switch than the controler, ccfl inverter, multiplier, image tube. Sorry. stewbison

There is good bet that I have a tube for this, but it not worth sending to me. Also, maybe it not the image intensifier tube but something else in the electronic.............Made in Russia--Red Star

2006 Pacifica emergency brake problem.


The only manual adjustment for the parking brake on these is at the shoes themselves. Procedure for that is as follows:

1) Place parking brake lever in "full released" position.
2) Raise and support vehicle.
3) Remove plug in parking brake shoe support to access adjuster star-wheel.
NOTE: Through the access hole, rotate the adjuster wheel in the following direction to expand the shoes outward against the drum.
Left brake--Rotate star wheel toward rear of vehicle.
Right brake--Rotate star wheel toward front of vehicle.
4)Using an appropriate tool, turn adjuster star wheel until wheel will not rotate (dead lock).
5) Back off adjuster six detents (teeth).
6) Rotate wheel, checking for light drag. If drag is too heavy, continue to back of adjuster one detent at a time until light drag is present. Do not back off star-wheel more than 17 detents from wheel lock.
7) Install access plug.
8) Adjust opposite wheel parking brake shoes using same method.
9) Lower Vehicle.
10) Apply and release parking brake lever once to ensure proper operation of parking brakes.

These directions are directly from 2006 Pacifica factory service manual.

I took the main lenses out of my William Optics ZS 66 SD to clean them and now, since I put them back in ( in the right order) I cannot get it to go to pinpoint focus, I always get bloom. HELP!


The lenses are out of collimation, and must be rotated either on an optical bench or using a star test.

How to remove the rear brake drum on a 1999 chrysler town & count


The star wheel is accessible after removing the elongated rubber plug on the drum housing right next to the brake bleeder screw. Use a "brake drum spoon" to rotate the star wheel one click at a time. The proper direction of rotation is the direction the star wheel does not want to go since you are turning it against the hold of the ratcheting no-back. After rotating it several clicks, jiggle and pull on the brake drum and if it doesn't slide off with a normal amount of force, rotate the star wheel several more clicks. If I recall, the star wheel only has about 25 clicks of rotation or so before even brand-new, thick shoes are backed off away from the drum a significant amount to the point that the auto adjuster has a considerable amount of slack in it (no outward pressure).

Blue streak at bottem of screen


Hello,

You have the classic "blue blobs," In most of Sony's rear projection LCD's, the Optical block is bad. Manufacturer's defect. The blue panel inside of the optical block starts de-laminating (due to heat from the lamp). This is a very common problem. I have changed about 70-80 optical blocks myself over the course of about 4 years.

There is no other fix but to replace the optical block. Unfortunately, it will get worse, and will probably develop "stars," or stuck pixels, as well. You can call Sony and try to get some assistance, but the extended warranty on these sets has recently expired.

Hope this helps you in some way...
