Having problems with your iRobot 5800 Scooba Vacuum ?

Scooba 5800 Power button Red Blinking

\015 Hi,\015\012\015\012I have used my Scooba 5800 for a few months. Last night, I try to recharge the battery (Power charge plugs into Scooba 5800), but the power button turned red blinking. I did reinsert a few times to ensure the battery sitting on the Scooba properly, still red blinking\015\012\015\012Kindly advise what's happened? How can I check the battery is still in good condition or die down already? Any way to verify the Scooba charging circuit is ok? by measuring the Voltage readings on the battery connections on Scooba?\015\012\015\012Any possibility cause red blinking? Bad contact somewhere in the circuit?\015\012\015\012Thank you very much for any suggestion\015\012\015\012Edmund\015

You probably have the manual, but here's the link to the Scooba 5800 manual anyway - just in case this would be useful to you: --> \015\012\015\012http://www.irobot.com/images/homesupport/5800_Scooba_Manual.pdf \015\012\015\012\015\012You could use a voltmeter to check the battery, but only a few months use shouldn't be enough to wear it out. If you don't have a load-tester to verify the battery's load-capacity, then you can check the voltage drop. (Assuming you can get it to contact the Scooba's circuits.) \015\012\015\012To do this, just check the battery voltage, apply a load by inserting it in the machine and turning it on, then check the battery voltage again. An excessive drop in voltage may indicate the battery needs replacing. \015\012\015\012However, the red blinking light is Scooba's indicator that it doesn't detect the battery at all. The first thing to do in this case is to clean the electrical contacts on the battery and in the Scooba. \015\012\015\012Use a damp cloth and a bit of toothpaste to rub the contacts clean on the battery and in the machine. (Toothpaste has mild abrasives in it and will clean the electric contacts without damaging them.) Make sure that both the battery and the Scooba are clean and dry before re-inserting the battery. \015\012\015\012Also, if the electric contacts in the machine are flexible matal tabs then verify that the tabs are standing up high enough to make good contact with the battery contacts. \015\012\015\012Hopefully the battery just needs it's contacts cleaned for your unit to work, but test the battery if you are sure that they are clean and seated properly to the contacts in the machine. If the battery appears to be failing, then contact www.irobot.com to cheack and see if they are still covered under your machine's warranty. \015\012\015\012\015\012Hope this helps! :)

Err5 When charging the battery, it starts out flashing amber, but after several minutes it turns red and the err button flashes five times.
