Tip & How-To about Neato XV-21 Pet & Allergy Automatic Vacuum Cleaner
It's a great design BUT the weak point in the design is the quality of the 100uF electrolytic capacitors that they use on the main board. After 2-3 years these cause problems with the Neato not turning on (dim green lights only) and its vision gets worse so it has problems with eratic cleaning patterns and can't redock itself.
in this video we show show to fix all those issues by changing the main board capacitors. It's like new again now! See it redocking itself late on in the video, it is about 50ft away in another room and comes back for charging!
Here is a video showing a quick temporary fix and the full fix showing the change of all the electrolytic capacitors.
