Help with peek a boo penny

I never got this working for Halloween, and I got it off eBay months ago so I can't return it. Penny's motion sensor works fine, detects the motion and sings and screams but the head doesn't pop up. I can hear the motor doing something but the head just sits there. Anybody ever have this issue and been able to fix it?

Is the head stuck? What does the motor sound like?
Check and see if maybe there is a small pulley that is missing its little "O-ring" belt.

Most animatronic props today have at least one of those. I've even used small rubber bands as temporary replacements.
Did you ever get her working? I have the same issue but I have been trying to find the wiring diagram for her head. One wire is hanging down but no one can figure out where it goes. Does anyone happen to have a picture or diagram of the wiring? Thank you.
No I shelved it. I might get it back out soon and look
Hey Mikey23, I may have found a solution for you. I got ahold of the company who makes her and went through technical support on the phone with them, there is a small silverish pin holding her head near the shoulder, I was told to pull it with a plier till it pops or clicks, just don't pull it all the way out like I did. This is supposed to release her head.

Uhhhh don't know if this is fixable.........
You may need to take the head off and if you do you'll break the prop forever
Does anyone have a picture or diagram that they will share for the black E wire on peek-a-boo penny? One end of the black wire on my prop is hanging down but it has solder on it as if it was attached somewhere.
