Can anyone help me with my "it's a small world" clock.
Most of us will know this clock, it was a 50th aniv. Limited edition.
I have been struggeling with mine for some time now because it will not do anything.
I got the instructions with wich it came, but I can't get it to work apart from the quartz clock in the center. What I also don't understand is, how does it work and WHEN does it work..
I got sort of an answer from one of the designers saying that if the music-box is wound and the battery's are good it should go do it's trick, but WHEN does it do that ? does it work as soon and as long as the music-box is wound or does it wait for a trigger ?
I opened the bottom of the clock and found a little circuit-board, 2 electric motors and some wiring, I can't see any brown pieces where something has fried so I think everything is in order.
There is a IC on the board that could be replaced, the numbers are on it so I looked it up and it is a microcomputer ( AT 89c2051-24Pi ) but I'm hessitant to simply replace it, I don't know if it looses it's functions if you take it out of it's socket.
Can anybody help me out ?
