i saw an unused connector inside the robot, called 9x or 6x.
there are 4 pins, it looks like a kind of serial connector (gnd, TD, RD, VCC). Any body knows what is it for and if we can get control of the robot throught it via an API?
This could be usefull to have a kind of scheduler, remote control or, via an external computer a graphical representation of the cleaning with "real" virtual walls.

Hello, First check the cord to make sure you have continunity throw both leads, check
them at the cord reel, there are 2 wires hooked up to it, if not then
the cord is bad. Check the swith also, the next cause would be the
speen control mounted on the motor, part #04416342, sells for around
$85. If your motor checks ok, then it most likely the speed control,
they go out quite often...Thank you
Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
iRobot Roomba Vacuuming
Robots and the iRobot Dirt Dog Workshop Robot are equipped with four
infrared Cliff Sensors that prevent robots from falling off stairs or
ledges. The Cliff Sensors are located along the inside of the bumper. If
the Sensors become obstructed by dust or debris, the infrared signal is
weakened. Regularly inspect and clean the Sensors. Use compressed air
for best cleaning results.
