When I first saw the Neato advertise it was designed for, but not only, pet fur. I did my due diligence and discovered they DO have a problem with QC. While they seemed more then willing to exchange the units, but alas, to me that's shutting the barn door after the horse got out. It's really just an after the fact, band aid.


Most people familiar with electronics will agree when you put a ni-cad or nmh in service it's best to give it a long charge. However two days would, by most, be considered an indication of a problem. If you have the knowledge and handy skills you could remove the battery (easy), check voltage clean the contacts and using a bulb, motor, or most any other "load". run it down then try charging again. IMHO however more then likely their is a problem with either the charger or, more likely, the charging components within the unit. I've heard most exchange units are used, repaired and shipped out. I'm not a fan of reconditioned items, to often whatever caused them to be returned reappears. When something is intermitten fault isolationg can be nearly inpossible. Needless to say you have past the point of returning so the only option is the exchange route.

Good luck!!!

Neato won't charge


Hi, it's Jeremy from Crucial Vacuum.

Try charging your Neato vacuum directly with the plug. If you take apart the dock you will find the plug inside. Plug that plug directly into Neato and charge the Neato until its light is green. If your Neato's Battery charges and it works ok, reassemble the base with the charger making sure that the plug you plugged into your Neato is plugged FIRMLY into its connector inside the base.

How to fix the neato vacuum


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.

Why does my neato xv-12 keeps saying "put me on the floor" but it is and I cannot turn off


There are sensors in the wheel housing that let Neato know whether it is being held (wheels protruding from the frame), or whether it is on the floor (wheels tucked into the frame). If those sensors are not working, you will need to have the unit serviced (if under warranty), or you can look up information on how to correct the problem yourself (if out of warranty). This information can generally be found by searching the Neato Robotics forum at:

Lcd screen not working


Even though I own a XV21 they forwarded this to me. You have replaced the battery with, I assume, a new one. So start with the charging system. First check the plug and other wiring. Pick up an inexpensive VOM meter. Harbor Frieght might be a good place to start your shopping. You can check the AC line for a break with the ohm setting. Be sure it's deenergized (unplug) :) Then check the output voltage (DC setting). If the output is up to spec then I'd guess it's something internal, and probably beyond the ability of an end user. Oh, and if you know someone with a machine which takes the same battery try charging yours on the friends charger, and swap out the batteries to see what happens.

Will not charge


This could point to several causes:

1) Accidentally disconnected battery or batteries inside Neato
2) A charger that is not properly assembled (check charging block connections)
3) A dead battery
4) A defective charger
5) Defective charging circuitry on the Neato motherboard

The easiest way to determine the actual cause is to thoroughly research each potential cause on the Neato Robotics forum, found here:

Neato seems to have died but the green light is on


Mine was doing same thing. was working flipped upside down to replace the rubber blades then nothing.Display dark only it has green led around orange button. Unplugging batteries didn't help.pressing buttons nothing. holding buttons down nothing. Found this on another site. Connect the vac to your computer and place it on charger at same time. Press and hold the orange button for about 10 sec. or so. it should turn of the LED then let up and repress button. vac should then reboot. Unplug computer. Wouldn't hurt at this time to tell it you put in "New Batteries" but first remove any scheduled cleaning days to clear its memory. After doing the New battery, reset the schedule and let it charge. After that it maybe a good time to check your program version and update it from the Neato web site to the newest update. The newest update does wonders for the battery run time issues.
