I picked up at auction an Ichida Answer Game Robot last week, and I have a question that someone out there may know the answer to. It seems to light up, and all switches make the motor run, the left and right eye indicate plus or minus, the spinner revolves in head bubble, but my problem is that I don't know how to operate it! I assume that you clear the numbers to zero's with the left switch marked "C", and then maybe type in two numbers in the keys, and then switch plus or minus.

My machine's keys may not press down sometimes, or maybe I'm not clearing to zero first. But then what ,does it stop automatically or do I press the "T" lever(is this for total?). I simply don't know how it is supposed to operate, so I can't tell if all systems are functioning normally. Does anyone know how they work?

I will post a picture soon, as I'm really impressed with the colors on these robots. Some pictures I've seen really don't do these robots justice. Thanks, -Larry Seven

Larry. I don't know how it works but I saw my first one at a toy sale last week and I agree, the shape ,colours and the whole make up of this robot don't seem to come out in pictures, I was really impressed.

This one mind was a bit tatty and the price tag, £425 , way over the top. :o

5. Push button T for the total result = 6. This should work - otherwise your mechanism is out of order.

Dirk-you are the first person I know that has actually figured out how properly use this guy. I pretty sure my friend has the original instructions-but I've never actually read them.

Good work as usual!

:) Yes, this example works as it should, except there is a loose piece in front of the number display. I am going to have to disassemble her for repair.

As expected, my photographs do not reproduce the correct green on the body. The green is a rich grassy green. slightly darker and greener than the Dux Astroman in the same picture, yet my digital camera shws it to be more dull green than this. I had seen a few pics posted of these, and they often look similar. I love the robot. -L7

I have never seen this robot in person, these photo's really help me to understand the appeal of this robot. It is very cool to see the photo's that light up in the "eyes". I have a new appreciation for the Answer Game Robot.

Jeff-to add to his description-from what I remember he is quite a hunk of metal. Real "heft" to this robot-you wouldn't want to drop him on your foot.

How about someone posting a photo of the pad?

Does anyone have a picture of the Answer Game Robot interior? I just came across one and all the wires are disconnected. The motor seems to work fine but I have no clue how to attach the wires. If someone has a few pictures I would appreciate it. Thanks!

I will ask a co-worker if he can post pictures of one of mine. I don't have the equipment to send photos but a co-worker of mine does. I'll ask him tomorrow. :huh:

Great, Festival. I look forward to seeing the pics. I never saw so many loose wires in a robot--at least eight. I have the rear cover open and it would be nice if I could solder these wires without pulling the whole thing apart. I'm guessing the wires run a second motor on top, plus a bulb in there somewhere.
