Damaged charging station Roomba - Error 5

Postby przemo33 » August 10th, 2017, 9:20 am

Hello,


Hello,
I have a question about the charging station (integrated).
When charging, after a moment, throws a message "Error 5" on the vacuum cleaner.

On other stations is OK.

Can I somehow repair this damaged station?

Regards

They are hardly worth fixing. It's a simple SMPS with a FET switch turned on by the bots load on the charging plates.

Hello,
Everything indicates that the culprit is this element as for the photo.
(With other good power supply also causes Error 5 error)

Which element can cause such behavior (Error 5)?

Regards

Safety is your no. 1 concern.
That board may, as many SMPSs do, fully rectify and filter the incoming power, making 120V or 220V Ac in to 175V or 310VDC, RMS to Peak.
I recently "fixed" one and didn't take it apart. The power cord wasn't plugged in properly.
Here is the device and a schematic fron the data sheet used by the 4000 series charger.
