Hi guys this is my first post, I have recently bought 2 Roombas at local garage sales
The first Roomba that I have bought at a garage sale, The first roomba I bought was the 400 series the red one. It works ok the battery only lasts 20 mins and I have been trying to get the battery to last longer, I have taken out the battery hold the clean button down and let it charge for over 16 hours, Does it need to sit on the charger for 72 hours as some people have said?
On to the next Roomba I bought, It's a 565 Model , I don't have the exact charger for it so I have been using the charger from the older version Roomba, The 565 model needs a 22.5V Charger and I have been using a 22V charger. I'm not sure if that will make a difference? Anyways I have reset the battery/schedule as I have read about it, It has an Error 5 which I can't seem to fix I'm guessing it't a battery/charging issue from what I have read. After I take out the charger and plug it back in after a few minutes of charging it turns green, I try to start it and it's almost ready to go then turns red. I assume the battery is just dead on this one. Is there any way to bring back the battery to life?
