... does it look like its trying to speak but no noise is comes out of the speaker when it does? Ive got a boom that also seems to be having speaker problems.too.....(its words sound broken,like the wiring is bad or something. I'm thinking speaker needs fixing/replacing....seems like many of those boom need either speaker or motor fixes)

Cathal McHale, here is my answer to a very similar question "I would get to the "tummy switch" and check the circuit from there. You do have a couple of choices here. Check the switch, then the speaker. Check the connector for both. You will need a multimeter to check those. Follow the schematic to work on your Furby's voice, and check on here for directions on how to skin the Furby. Hope this helps, good luck.

Have you tried what a bunch of others with mute booms have trie....if the fault is in the speaker itself many have had sucess with poking the speaker membrane actually through the fur & plastic cover.....i have done something kinda similar and i took out the bad speaker and plugged in a better one.....ive found that if none of that works, it may require more surgery to fix/replace a faulty motor....diagnosing what didnt help is oddly enough can be great,MN frustrating but eventually great. Let me know if anything helps
