Comment on A Closer Look at Cody, Our Code-a-Pillar by Kim.
I significantly lowered the volume on our grandaughter’s Code-a-pillar with 1/2-3/4 of a standard cotton ball. Here’s how: detach the primary unit and place on the operating (flat surface) table…remove the batteries…remove the four screws in the bottom of the blue chassis…there is wiring between the white body and the blue chassis we do not want to damage, carefully separate the white body from the blue chassis until you see the length of the wiring…the blue wire goes to the speaker, remove the two screws that hold the speaker retainer in place…carefully remove the retainer and speaker disc…place 1/2-3/4 of a standard cotton ball in the speaker grill cup of the body and carefully place the speaker disc over it…replace the speaker retainer and screws…carefully replace the blue chassis and retaining screws…replace batteries. You are in business with a lot less loud. Btw, while the chassis and body are apart, it is a good time to fish hair balls out of the single drive wheel and gears to increase longevity—use a small paper clip with a minute bend in the very end.
