This work ok for me ihave a 560 thanks
You should start by removing the "belly plate" of the Roomba and simply removing the battery to cycle power to the unit. If that does not solve the problem, it sounds like you need a replacement circuit board for the 560. That's alot trickier since iRobot doesn't like to sell those...they want you to send to them for service.
Your options would be to send to a reputable Roomba repair center like www.protechrobotics.com or you can buy a replacement PCA from places like www.RoboticVacParts.com and replace yourself.

For my roomba 540 the dock station light is on. To dock the roomba goes towards the dock but when it reaches the dock tries to find the metal contacts, goes over them but is unable to dock. It used to dock fine. I did open the roomba to check its battery but I think it still worked after I opened it.

Stops I had my iRobot Roomba 530 in storage for 8 months. I didn't remove the battery.

My 400 series Discovery Roomba will no longer charge. It shows a green "charged" light, but when I hit clean, all lights/vacuum, etc just go out and it stops. Irobot says that the entire unit needs to be replaced, but it has to have something to do with the charging mechanism. Any Ideas? I've tried the system reset, and removing/replacing the battery. No effect. The robot doesn't give me the "uh-oh" beeps to be charged. It just stops and goes dead.

The clean light on the Roomba 520 doesn't quit blinking even when it has been docked for hours, i checked all the plugs and i also pushed the spot button for 10 seconds. it is a a slow continual blink as if it is recharging continually. what is the problem.


Sounds like you didn't remove the batteries protective tape. If this isn't a new roomba, your problem may be the charging cycle. For a brief video of what to do click the link below.http://irobot-homesupport-en-eu.custhelp.com/app/answers ... iRobot Roomba 530 Robotic Vacuum

I was vacuuming and noticed that the bag needed changing. the red light with the ! inside the triangle also came on. When the bag was changed, the vacuum would not restart. The red light came on. Tried the reset button but nothing happened. Tried unplugging and re-plugging in and nothing happened. Replaced all the filters and still it wouldh't start. So I brought it downstairs and tried one more time to get it to start. it worked! Is there something wrong with the vacuum cleaner? Was it overheat

After a brief power outage my Marantec 4700 garage door opener has problems opening/closing. When opening it stops at the fully open position and the lights blink, when closing it automatically reverses just as it fully closes and then the lights start to blink again. I checked for obstructions and tried to reset the limits of travel per the manual, it still does the same thing. Any ideas on what to try next?

My Roomba 4210 plays the dead battery song 10 seconds after I press Clean, Spot or Max.

Why won't it clean for more than five seconds without that dreadful tune, flashing power light and an amber status light?

I have a Roomba Discovery. In the past, I had to replace the charging dock. Then the battery died so I did not use it for two years. I finally bought a new battery and used the Roomba. It worked great. It did not find the docking station, and died. I have been charging it and the red light pulsates, but after 16 hours, it still is not charged...any ideas?
