Problem with my flip face toby...
#1
So, recently I've fully fixed my flip face toby that I got 2 months ago. But, today I wanted to check out the motor, because whenever I turn it off, it makes a werid screeching noise, any help?

I've cleaned the hair out of the motor, but it still doesn't help.

Here's a link to the video.

Maybe its just me but I couldn't hear anything in the video at all. Not even the sound of it running.

Just guessing because I can't hear it, I have sometimes given the motor shaft a tiny drop of lightweight oil to smooth out the sound. Was that motor housing spray painted brown or did it come that color?

i did hear it but very faint.  is your camera connected to a boom mike?  if so put the motor to the bloom mike.  Perhaps the gear needs to be lubricated with WD-40?  I don't want to give any bad advice since flip face toby is rare.

The motor housing did come in that color of brown. Elliot was also the one who helped with getting information on Flip Face Toby for the document.

Thanks Ffar, I don't think I have ever seen a motor housing in brown like that before.
