Hi, thanks for your reply.

When the Roomba is off of the dock, is the power light on the dock?
What about when you manually place the Roomba on the dock, does the Docked light up on the dock as well (2 green lights)?
What you can do is use an LCD camera, and point it at the dock IR window and look through it on the LCD screen. You should see 2 white lights in the window(Roomba off of the dock). You should see a faint white light on the 360 degree "Turret" (Button on top of the Dock). You might have a faulty Dock and/or Roomba.
I can't see any light when I try this, but the Roomba has successfully docked itself a couple of times - so I don't think there is a problem here.
It is normal for the Roomba to cover the same area a few times to cover the whole zone.
I understand that, but the manual suggests about 25 minutes for an "average sized room". The roomba was still running after 2 hours in a room with less than 30 square metres of accessible floorspace.
