Question about iRobot Roomba Discovery SE Bagless Robotic Vacuum
My Roomba Discovery was packed away for a few months while I was moving. Now it doesn't appear to hold a charge. I dock it (both docking lights come on) and after a while the power light turns green, but as soon as I move it it signals an error and the power light blinks red. Even if I leave it docked, the power light will eventually (after MANY hours)turn green, but after a while will go back to blinking red again, even if I don't touch it. Do I need to replace the battery? How do I do that?
That sounds like a classic battery failure in the Roomba discovery series. There are sensors inside the battery pack that go bad too. Either way...it's not very practical to repair the battery....the best shot you have would be to order a replacement battery. You just pop the old one out and then put the new one in.
They are available from iRobot for $69 at this link: http://store.irobot.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2799714&cp=2804606.3358509&ab=CMS_AccSuper_Roomba400_102308&parentPage=family
There are sources of less expensive (about $35) Genuine iRobot quality batteries also.

SOURCE: Roomba 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.

SOURCE: My Roomba does not want to dock
Need more info.
Does the unit go into search mode? "SPOT & CLEAN" flashing? It actually tries to search?
Do you have another roomba to test your dock on to see if IT will dock? If it tries but just cant, then either the dock transmitter, or the roombas receiver is dead. (The round antennae thingys on the dock and the bumper) replace these would be the first point.
