I tried new batteries, but nothing happened. This thing is way outside my knowledge base. From what I read it is supposed to move, turn, launch rockets & balls.
I did not try and take it apart, or clean it. I'd rather leave that to someone that knows the toy. Physical condition: very few scratches, I see no cracks or chips.
