Having problems with your iRobot Roomba 500 Series Virtual Wall Lighthouse 80201 Robotic Vacuum ?

Backs up spins in circles, then red light flashes and beeps

\015 My roomba moves away from the docking station a few inches, spins in circles for a minute or so, then the red light beeps and flashes and the vacuum shuts off.\015

Answers :

Hi, Your Roomba is experiencing the 9-beep error. This is caused by a bad component in your bump sensor. It pretty much is constantly sending a bump signal to your Roomba, which is why your Roomba keeps going backwards and circling(and never goes forward). Anyways, I had the same issue and fixed it by buying a repair kit from here.
Sounds like either the battery is bad or not being charged properly with subsequent loss of programming.

Err5 When charging the battery, it starts out flashing amber, but after several minutes it turns red and the err button flashes five times. The troubleshooting says to hold the buttons above and below the power button for ten seconds and this may resolve some software issues. I tried that but it goes back to the amber light then red again. I replaced the battery hoping that was the issue, but it still does the same thing.
