Hi guys, ( I couldn't make a new post had to reply to a topic so sorry if I posted wrongly).
I have had my Neato since around September of 2010. It has been working absolutely like a dream up until recently.
I have a Board Rev 112 neato, and I have not had any RPS errors no troubles . It is well out of warranty and well the warranty wouldn't apply for me. because I live in Australia. It has also been updated to 2.6 and has a pet brush and filter..
My issue started a few months ago, its runs started to be really shortened and it got to the point where i'd run it and it would just say its battery needed charging. So i cheated for a while and kept pressing "new battery" and that made the neato do a run or two. then I would rinse and repeat..
I finally sucked it up and purchased neato some new battery's . I had to wait for the battery's almost 4-5 weeks because my reshipper was having issues .
My neato whilst waiting for the battery's started acting weird.
It would not do its little search of the room before it started the perimeter and it wouldn't vacuum in straight lines, it would start the straight lines then just head off in random directions or go past its perimeter, Like it didn't know it split the room into two . it just had no boundaries..
Now I thought that maybe its because the battery's are drained and that it just needs new battery's .
I got my new battery's plugged them in let it charge. Fingers crossed that this will fix the above issues.
Well it didn't, my neato is acting 'dumb' it cleans my bedroom ok but it really is a small bedroom, but as soon as I try to vacuum the lounge room, it just doesn't comprehend . still had no RPS errors . My lounge room has successfully in the past, been vacuumed by neato no worries.
I also have tried blowing out the turret with compressed air. No go, I have also wiped its wall sensor thinking that it might be that causing it.
What should I do??
I really cannot afford a new neato. I love this little thing.
I just want it working again.
can anyone offer some solutions? or is there no hope for this guy..
