Having problems with your Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum ?

Roomba Docking Station

\015 We had a power outage for 4 hours last night. When the power came back on the lights on the docking station were blinking, then they went out. Now the Roomba will not charge. Do I need a new docking station?\015

Answers :

Probably not, unless you just have to have the docking station. My roomba always had trouble mating with my docking station so I never used it. I just plugged it directly in to will using the AC adapter.
I had this problem with my docking station. I unplugged it and took the base apart by removing a few screws on its bottom.

I looked at the wire that connected the circuit board to the power supply and noticed that it was charred on its plastic connector.

I disconnected the wire from the circuit board. I broke the charred connector with a pair of pliers to expose the red and black wires. I soldered the wires to the prongs on the circuit board and put everything back together.

The station is now working properly.

I now have the docking station on a powerbar with a surge protector.

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?
