View Full Version : Vintage Vehicle/Playset Sounds

Anyone out ther know how to fix the "Battle Sounds" on their old toys? I have a few that have lost their ability to "Alert" the Rebels/Imperials, and was wondering if all is lost. Namely, the X-Wing, TIE Fighter, and Imperial Troop Transport. . . can't think of any others of the top of my head.

I might be able to help. The X-Wing and TIE Fighters are easy compared to the Troop Transport. For my advice about the Troop Transport check this thread (http://www.sirstevesguide.com/forums/showthread.php?t=18756) out. It also as some of my general tips and tricks.
But specially for the X-Wing and TIE cockpit (all the TIEs are the same of course) answer this: Do the LEDs light up? If no, clean the contacts. If yes your contacts are good and your problem is with the motor. The way I get my motors running is with a vinegar as I suggest here (http://www.sirstevesguide.com/forums/showthread.php?t=18756) for the Falcon. Its not always a permanent solution, but it does work. If you know what your doing you might replace the motor. If you need more info ask. Hope that helps.
