960 not finding home

Postby drunkpenguin » May 3rd, 2019, 6:05 pm

The last 2 runs our 960 ran for an hour and 20 mins and died before finding it's charger. We were not home at either time to watch it, but he died in the room where his charger is located. It's a small 10x10 room that we store him in. Nothing has changed, charger is in the same spot, entire house furniture is the same. It's been fine for weeks until now. I keep it and the charger very clean. Any ideas?

Possibly battery capacity is decreasing and there is not enough reserve power to locate the base and dock.

Maybe, he normally goes an hour and 15 before looking for home and was dying about about an hour 20. I restarted him and also slightly relocated him, seemed to work fine today so we'll see.
