Hi,

\015\012You are correct though you have the discovery model the way to understand the code and find the troubleshooting steps are same. First when the status light comes on, the Discovery is going to sing like "uh-oh," and then beep a number of times. You need to count the beeps. They're a code that tells you what's wrong with the Discovery. You can check iRobot's website for a chart of beep codes. Search "What is Disvocery to me?" on the troubleshooting page to understand what’s wrong .
