SOURCE: My Roomba Discovery doesn't appear to hold a charge

cor2an,
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. You could try www.RoboticVacParts.com at this link: http://cgi.ebay.com/OEM-iRobot-APS-battery-Roomba-400-4XXX-Discovery_W0QQitemZ270412120603QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item3ef5d1821b&_trksid=p4634.c0.m14.l1262&_trkparms=|301%3A1|293%3A1|294%3A30

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 560 does not automatically dock as advertised either..

You may not believe this, but the new 500 series lighthouse virtual walls have both infrared and radio frequency communication. How they work and associate with the Roomba is pretty complicated. The best posting I've ever seen about how they work is here:
http://www.robotreviews.com/chat/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=11048

Check out that link to understand how the communication works.

If your Roomba is contained by the virtual walls, then you can assume the IR sensor on your Roomba us good....you should test that though. Then you might have to replace the "home base" which could have a bad IR transponder . New ones can be found for reasonable price at www.RoboticVacParts.com or you could order straight from iRobot for twice the price.

If the Roomba is not contained by the virtual walls, then the IR sensor on the Roomba is likely bad and you'll need to change the bumper on your Roomba. Again ....parts are available through ebay, or www.RoboticVacParts.com. Follow this link if you need it.

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.

My roomba will not charge on the dock. I have had it for 1 year. The dock is receiving power as the green light is flashing. What can we do?


Try using some fine sand paper to clean the pair of metal contacts on both the vacuum and on the dock (unplug it first). They may be dirty and not making adequate contact.

Roomba Schleduler Charging


Bad battery most likely. Could be a faulty charger too. Have your local vac shop test it.

I roomba wont dock


That's usually caused by a charging issue. Could be that the contacts the roomba uses to charge on the base are bad or the contacts on the roomba its self. Here is a good troubleshooting guide. Roomba customer service is very good too, if the roomba is less than a year old they will repair it for you. good luck!

The light on my Roomba flashes amber very quickly when plugged in directly with the adapter. what does this mean? it usually flashes slower when docked.


If Roomba senses that its battery has been significantly discharged, Roomba will enter a special 16-hour refresh charge cycle. When the 16-hour refresh charge is initiated, the CLEAN light will quickly pulse red/amber. Do not interrupt the cycle once it has begun. The 16-hour refresh charge cycle is initiated by the robot and cannot be started manually.
For long-term storage, always remove the battery from Roomba and store in a cool, dry place. Blue or black batteries should be stored after Roomba has been used. Yellow batteries should be stored after being fully charged.
Battery capacity reduces overtime and usually the battery will need to be replaced each year.

The clean light on the Roomba 520 doesn't quit blinking even when it has been docked for hours, i checked all the plugs and i also pushed the spot button for 10 seconds. it is a a slow continual blink as...


Sounds like you didn't remove the batteries protective tape. If this isn't a new roomba, your problem may be the charging cycle. For a brief video of what to do click the link below.

I unplugged the docking station and now does not work


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.
