I am new to the forum.

A friend of mine brought one of these over and asked me to help solve the reading of the ADC chip.

I have figured out the commands and how to interface with the IC.

I am also working on another idea that will allow me to make custom animations for the entire head.

I am new to the elvis head but not to Electroncis and robotics in general.

Glad there is a forum to ask questions and help others.

(I am also good at trouble shooting boards and logic)

While doing some research for the RS Media (and not finding what I was looking for), I found some interesting WowWee docs. Here's a link to some FCC docs for the Alive Chimp!

What's worse than one dead Elvis?

Two dead Elvis!

Seriously, I bought one of these wowee elvis as a gift last year. It sat in the box until it was given as a x-mas gift. Unpacked it, put the batteries in it, plugged it in, inserted the cartridge, turned it on, and all it does it "nod" once.

I can hear a hissing sound coming from the speaker but that's all it does.

WOW WEE ELVIS - Didn't Come with Cartridge ;-(

I am *willing* to pay for an Elvis Alive cartridge.

A sad Christmas Day as kids opened Wow Wee Elvis (purchased from eToys two months in advance to make sure we'd have it for the morning of the 25th!) and we discovered there was no enclosed / attached cartridge. We checked ALL boxes and packing materials - as I've been told cartridge could have been attached to the outside of box. But, nothing.
