Question about Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum
We had a power outage for 4 hours last night. When the power came back on the lights on the docking station were blinking, then they went out. Now the Roomba will not charge. Do I need a new docking station?
Probably not, unless you just have to have the docking station. My roomba always had trouble mating with my docking station so I never used it. I just plugged it directly in to will using the AC adapter.

I had this problem with my docking station. I unplugged it and took the base apart by removing a few screws on its bottom.
I looked at the wire that connected the circuit board to the power supply and noticed that it was charred on its plastic connector.
I disconnected the wire from the circuit board. I broke the charred connector with a pair of pliers to expose the red and black wires. I soldered the wires to the prongs on the circuit board and put everything back together.
The station is now working properly.
I now have the docking station on a powerbar with a surge protector.

I actually had the same issue with mine.. it was 6 years old and just stopped finding the docking station. Also wouldnt take a charge. So I just eliminated the docking station. The stations power cord will charge the unit. Hope this helps.
