hello to all that reads this.
I started viewing almost any post about Roboraptor. Well i have one of them from ebay, I won the bid at $4.99 I figure what the heck, why not bid.
And I have a few questions I was thinking SomeOne might be able to help.
He will Roar just fine, But he only moves his head and tail slowly for a few seconds and his legs very slow for a few seconds when I put Brand NEW batterys in him or Fress charged ones. After them few moves "I assume Boot up moving" he will only Roar now and then or if I trip on of his tail or head sensors.
I have him apart on the table right now and I have tested all of his motors with 1 AA battery. they all do work, and Quick.
I did a Ohm beep test on his wire's and I do get a beep on every wire, so all of them are good. I removed his Batt trey and unpluged it from his board, At the Plug, with switch on, I get about 5.37v on the brown+ and black- wire, But only 2.70 on his Red+ and black- wire, And Zero v on his yellow- and green+ wires?, But When I have it pluged into his borad I get 4.86 on the yellow and green wires, and real close to the same V on the other wires from the plug when unpluged just a little more.
At First I was thinking low power before I took him apart, now i wounder what the Deal is, He will move a little slowly for a few seconds, so power gets to his motors, just not very much power as it looks. He will roar just fine. "I think a little loud"
If you can help out that would be cool!! If its somthing like a cap on his board or somthing that went bad I would try and replace the cap, I just dont really know how to test that stuff. And these robots are not very common at all Around here where I live. I had to drive 200 miles round trip to get a parts robo V2 to fix the one I have. So If I can I would rather drive 15 miles to raido shack to get a few Caps or whatever I might need and try to fix this guys board.
