The red light flashing just in the docking station. When you put it on the carpet and press clean, it just make a lower sound and does not start.....\015

Answers :

It means you need to clean the sensors. I have had this problem every now and then. There are 4 plastic clear sensors that you can clearly see when you put roomba upside down.

I have found the best and most effective way to clean them is with a dust wipe. You push the dust wipe in with a cotton swab or even a pen, and rub it around the face of the sensors cleaning the dust off, and it will work fine again.

The reason you need to use a dust wipe like a Swiffer brand is that it is very effective and will pick up all the dust. You may not see the dust and you will keep getting that red flashing error though the sensor may look clean to you.

I just had that problem, and after I used the dust cloth, it's working fine again. Good luck.
You need to put your roomba into diagnostic mode and see which sensor is causing you problems. the link below is the directions for diagnostic mode.\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012http://swiftracer.com/index.php?myPage=RoombaDiagnosticMode.php

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.

My purple Dyson Animal (without the ball) isn't working correctly. When I turn it on, the red power light, as well as the medium pile buttons flashes. When I first turn it on, the brush rotates for 3 to 5 seconds, then once I start moving the vacuum, it stops and that's when the lights start flashing. I've checked the filters, they are dry and installed correctly. What could be the problem?
