Question about Friendly Robotics Rl1000 Robomower
The batteries, if you had not trickle charged them while stored, have probably bled down due to electrical leakage to a point below which the unit will not run. NiCad batteries are noted for this. Try to charge the batteries to restore operation. Check the voltage of the batteries since if a cell shorts, they will not charge properly.

Welcome to FixYa!
It looks like a battery problem. The Robomower should be kept in charging mode when not in use. The batteries are designed that way. The batteries will be damaged if you have kept it a long time without being charged. See details below.
Of all the areas regarding the RoboMower, proper charging of the Power Pack is second only to safety in importance. Failure to follow the charging guidelines will result in poor performance and a short Power Pack life. After the completion of any daily cutting session it is very important to bring the RoboMower to its storage area and plug it into the charger as soon as possible, preferably within 6 hours from the time it stopped. The standard charger is actually a power supply, where the voltage output is DC and the current flowing to the Power Pack for re-charging is regulated inside the mower. The Docking Station utilizes a similar type of power supply, but it is connected to the Docking Station and is approved for outdoor use. The charging system and Power Pack are designed such that they can remain plugged in at all times of non-use without concern to over charging, over heating or damaging the Power Pack. In fact, it is the preferred way to maintain your Power Pack, always keep it plugged into the charger when not being used.
