2 weeks ago I bought, not knowing what I was getting myself into, a Robosapien v2 at a yard sale. I bought it for my 6 yr old son cuz I thought it was really cool. I asked the lady if it worked she did not know. So I offered her 10 dollars and off I went with this big red robot that my son was going to use as an "enemy of the earth where his little action figures would be able to destroy it".
Very little did I know what I have bought. After cleaning the rusty battery terminals, the thing worked! but only for about 20 min. Just as I read on other threads here, robot bent backwords, said batteries low and stopped working after 10 min. Went and bought new batteries, installed them and pop goes the AA batteries. Sure enough took legs apart and wire confetti all over the place. Here comes where I need help.
I rewired the bad wires. The robot still will not turn on. Yes, new batteries, I checked with my multimeter and the cables that come out of the legs have power at the plugs that are attached to the circuit board. Since you guys are way more experienced at this than I am, I am hoping someone can just point me to the direction of where the problem might be. This is for my son and he has been waiting patiently for 2 weeks to play with this thing. PLEASE HELP.....
Thanks in advance for the help!
