I am new to the forum, this is my 1st post and am sincerely hoping someone can help/advise on my issue, I have had a Robosapien V2 for about 2 yrs and as my son is now at an age to appreciate the robot, I gave it to him for Xmas, upon start up he was so disappointed as the robot responded with a very distorted (static like) sound and did not go through the initiation process like he used to. There is no response to the control either, I have placed new batteries in the robot and controller but all to no avail. My 7yr old boy still switches it on everyday in the hope it will work and his disappointment turns to sadness. I remain very grateful for any help anyone can offer to rectify this problem and put a smile on my boys face. Thank you.
