Neato XV-15 shuts down and reset when docking...

Postby Toomaster » January 8th, 2017, 2:10 pm

Hi

I have a xv-15 that just started to behave strange.

This is what happens:
Leaves the docking station for scheuled cleaning, when finished and returning to docking station for recharge, there´s supposed to be a 4 tone melody and reharging starts.

What happens is that as soon as it hits the two charging bars there is a short tone (the first of the 4 in the melody) then just cut off.
It just shut down, goes black and the start button led turns orange (like very low on battery).

I pull it from charger, press start key, screen lights up and clock is resetted to 0:00 and says low battery, even if the battery is full.

So, it seems that it think´s it´s totaly out of battery, some how it´s totaly resetted when docking.

If i take it from dock, enter time and manually put it back to charging station it charges as normal, even if i pull the bot out a few inch it starts to back up against the charging station and starts to charge, so this only occurs when it´s going back after a scheuled cleaning.

Anyone have an idea what could be wrong?

Could be weak battery and also main board failure.
What version this board is?

The battery are brand new. I also replaced the lidar motor. Normal docking worked a few times but no it just shuts down when docking..... :-(

That's a much older and now rare main board revision. You may find one on ebay or Amazon.
