My mother recently came by with a RoboRaptor rescued from a garage sale, with the predictable swears that it "still works". It was only $15, so not a big loss (I LOVE their looks), but I'd still like to see if I can get this one to work once more.
I have extremely minimal knowledge in mechanics, electronics and robotics of any sorts, and right now the only things I can do without instructions would be taking its chest cover off, testing for conductivity, and figuring out if there's anything loose in there.
My diagnostics: It doesn't show ANY signs of booting up, at all, not a single twitch or relaxing, no motions or sounds, even with fresh batteries (and yes, they're in the right way, I triple-checked). Similarly the remote won't do anything to it, even with its own fresh batteries, and while the remote flashes light when I push buttons, what I've seen blink in the Raptor's nostrils doesn't happen (I'm assuming that's the "received input" light or something?) and still no motion at all.
Anyone have a checklist of stuff for me to check out?
