Ok, take regular WHITE paper. Do not press it on the sensor, just make it long enough so it covers the sensor. Then, take some clear tape, and tape the piece of white paper over it. Watch for the wall brush and stuff, don't get it to close to them or it'll rip it off! It works great, it cleans all my dark carpets, rugs, etc.! I'm thrilled! For a while, I didn't use my Roomba for that reason. But the cliff sensors ate on the bottom of the bump plate. I'll put the directions in order.

\015\0121. Cut WHITE printer paper, and position on scotch transparent tape.
\015\012
\015\0122. Position on sensor then lay down.

Put a trip of white tape on bottom of bumper where the sensor is. That will pvercome the black carpet aversion. If there is no cliff to fall over it wont matter that you have put tape on it.
