Title: My Furby Needs Help!
Description: He is my new one!

The new furby I got yesterday has trouble starting up. I can take out his batteries and tip him but he won't wake up. However if he does wake up he just falls asleep again. How can I fix him? :tux:

Some furbys have a very sleepy nature. If he keeps going back to sleep, keep waking him up till he stays awake. Sometimes if you hold the furby sideways and hold down their tongue while they are waking up, they will stay awake. It might take some patience. As for getting it to start up, I'm not sure what the problem is.

Sideways never works with Furbies who have I call SMSD. Turn him or her ALL THE WAY upside down, while holding down the younger sensor, and maybe gently shaking him or her. Release the younger sensor and he/she should turn back on.

as far as I'm concerned his new Furby is a Church Mouse. isn't this method going to re-start it, as it is a 1st generation Furb? he might not want to do that :(

I just realised there is a small hole in his mane. But thats just a ripped stitch. Why wouldnt I go with those instructions on a first gen furby Loona? :tux:

Hmm, try holding him to the side and shaking him. He might just be a sleepy Furby. Sometimes boo just keeps falling asleep. If he just stops doing anything, his gears must be stuck. If you open him and crank the gears, he might work. :hic:

Holding the furby upside down while pressing its tongue would restart it. This means that it would forget everything it has learned and go back to square one, speaking only furbish. Restarting a furby often is not good for it and could mess the furby up even more.

yep, just as Zendar said. it may not do any harm, but it may do. it may cure the Furby, but maybe it won't. the only thing that is sure is that the personality of the Furby will change possibly along with its name and voice pitch.
the decision if you want to try it or not is up to you.

It will not restart it unless you press the restart button whil having it upside down and pressing it's tounge........
Loona - February 9, 2012 08:55 AM (GMT)
erm... that's why I wrote 'as far as I'm concerned' in the above post about it being a first gen <_<
I clearly remember giving this advice (to wake the Furby up with the tongue sensor pushed) to someone (maybe it was Sonic too, or one of the brothers) here on the forum awhile ago, and some people told me that this method should not be done with Gen. 1
Furbies, because it results in a Re-Start even without the Re-Start button pushed.
so what now? :blink:
EDIT: yes, it was Sonic, I even found the topic: here it is

I've done it with first gens. It doesn't restart them.

I have found that this 'sleepiness' is common with original furbys. I have several who are very difficult to 'wake up' (including my favourite French speaking one, Jean-Luc :P). Restarting them doesn't appear to alter the problem, however, holding the tongue switch whilst tipping them fully upside down, and then the right way up, and releasing tongue switch seems to fully awaken it most of the time.
I can confirm that a restart is only initiated by holding the reset switch at the bottom whilst simultaneously turning the furby completely upside down and holding the tongue switch.

Thanks for the link Loona but Tux just has a sleepiness problem. It says that on his report in the adoption centre. My church mouse (who dosnt have a name yet) has trouble merely starting up. :tux:
Loona - February 10, 2012 05:26 PM (GMT)
Sonic, I didn't exactly link that for you but for TTC to prove why I wrote what I wrote earlier (and why I didn't recommend you trying the tongue-method) ;)
but as she and Pye also say what others said there doesn't prove to be true (I myself didn't try it as I didn't want to risk re-starting one of mine), and this doesn't re-start first gens either, you might try it. even though from what you write it seems to be a more complex problem, I hope it helps. and I overall hope your Church Mouse gets better soon!

Thanks Loona. I am gonna look online on other sites for help. :tux:
