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!
check and make sure your bumber isn't jammed with debris. you can briskly tap the bumper 10-20 times to try and free up anything that may be stuck up in there. it also wouldn't hurt to clean the four sensors underneath. if that doesn't work try and reset your machine by holding the power button down for 10 sec.
(Condensed from the iRobot site...) "Uh Oh Error 5" or "Uh Oh" and 5 beeps means Roomba's Side Wheel is stuck. Pick up Roomba and with Roomba right side up, push the side wheel up and down a few times to clear debris. Manually rotate the side wheels to clear debris. Blow air through the side wheel pockets (or vacuum them with an upholstery tool on a traditional vacuum) to clear debris. If this doesn't clear the obstruction, then contact iRobot customer support.
TYhe iRobot Roomba has different model designations. Here is a webpage with a list of what the beeps mean in the 400 series. I am thinking that is what you have. 3 beeps means the dirt cup is dirty, filters are dirty, or debris in collecting and it needs to be cleaned.

Hope this helps. If it does, I would appreciate a vote. Thanks,
Larger debris is usually the responsibility of the brushes. Remove the bin and run the Roomba-- are the brushes actually turning? If not, call customer support for a new cleaning head module.
If so, remove the grill from the back of the bin. Make sure that the little fan inside is clean, then reinstall the bin on the Roomba and run it. If that little fan doesn't spin, your Roomba has lost vacuum suction and you need a new bin.
Roomba does much of its cleaning by the brush and roller on the bottom, but an important part is the little fan at the back of the debris bin which provides 100% of the 'suction.'
First, take off the vent cover on the back of the debris compartment and start Roomba on a mission. You will see the little turbine spin (if it's working) and probably a little dust cloud will come out.
It may not be working at best efficiency, however, because dirt gets sucked into the housing and blocks much of the air flow. Now that you know what the fan/turbine looks like (it's quite small, only the size of two stacked silver dollars), peer down into the larger opening of the debris bin and view the turbine from the other side. Chances are there's some crud stuck down there which is impeding air flow. (There's a hollow part of the turbine where the air is sucked into before being expelled out the back, that's probably filled with pet hair/dust/etc.) Clean that out using a long knife, chopsticks, or anything else that can reach down in there. Bang the dust bin down (lightly) to dislodge any more hair that's up there and continue cleaning until it's all gone.
I've had 3 Roomba's and they all get hair stuck up there. I only have to do this once a year or so (multi-cat and dog household here!) but it makes all the difference in the world.
