    5 components and i lost the parts manual for em....can anyone identify em clockwise starting with the big blue one (i think it's a capacitor, but it's pretty big)

    LDR, Capacitor, Capacitor, Crystla, Fuse

    You missed the red insulation at the extreme upper right:D

    I think the fuse is really a reed switch.

    I would say that's a reed switch not a fuse.

    Here's my guess...

    EDIT: Come to think of it, the "MOV" is probably just a capacitor, can't imagine what good a 400 MOV would be doing among these components...

    I think your guesses are almost correct. The crystal is most probably a 32.768kHz crystal used for timekeeping. What suggest is a fuse. May more likely be a part from a reed relay.

    There should have been more Bacon and Cowbell in that pic.

    Thanks for correcting me, I clearly made a mistake about the reed switch. :)

    Everyone missed the big piece of plywood underneath all these tiny, irrelevant and unconnected parts.

    If that crystal rattles when you shake it, it may be a rollerball switch(tilt sensor)

    What crystal? I've never seen a crystal with leads like that before.

    I shook the crystal and it does rattle, so i guess it's a rollerball switch!
