Re: 3Discover viewer problems

When I saw Dale and Jaques posts I remembered my collection of 3Discover cartridges.
I am not sure how many titles there were but I am pretty sure it was less than the 90 that Dale has.
Maybe Jaques (from whom I bought most of mine many years ago) has the definitive list.
In the viewer they are very impressive stereo.
But alas I checked my viewer and it does not work with fresh rechargeables and manual movement of the white gear.
I will try unscrewing but I don't hold out much hope as this viewer has only been used about 10 times and it appears it may be a product design failure.
Well I unscrewed the top hoping to get access to the gears but that was not possible as they are in what appears to be the glued part to the top assembly.
All solder joints and wiring neat and accounted for.
Reassembled but resigned to failure I put batteries in for one last go -and it worked!
Could it be pressure from top screws. Could it be a break I could not see in the solder or board that just "got it together".
Don't know but I will be getting out the cartridges again to have a look before there are more problems.
