Numerous 595 problems.

Postby leonicholson » June 8th, 2019, 1:41 pm

I just received a very clean 595 that clicks with when trying to charge and the on/off button flashes red three times. This is the same on dock or with side charge jack.

When I put in a good battery, the drive wheel farthest from the spinner starts running with the on/off switch not pressed or illuminated.

No Err messages, beeps, etc.

I put in a proven drive wheel modules without affect.
Can't reset it, as it immediately starts running without powering on and won't shut off without removing battery.

Toast?

New board or look for water damage to the original board. Clean with 99.9% Isopropyl Alcohol on visible damaged areas of the board using a toothbrush.

I may try cleaning it, although I suspect there's a low success rate. :)

When you clean the motherboard with 99.9%, do you soak it before brushing?

I usually spray suspect areas from a spray style container then scrub with a small brush and wipe with a cloth.

Thanks.

Disassembled the Roomba today and cleaned the motherboard with alcohol and brush - to no avail.
The insides and motherboard were clean and showed no physical problems, but it has obviously "bit the dust".
It is amazing how well made the Roombas are and how easy they are to access.
