well done mate,good video.it seems to be the springs.they look different.
is it possible that they are different lengt or thikness.
sound coming from the spring.

Thanks, the right side seems shorter and is more stiffer. One of the problems is the that if you pull it to the right the spring doesn't pull his body straight. It leans..
Anyways, besides that he goes immediately to the right when tapping the left buttons and I don't think that's the spring. I could be wrong of course..

It's the same thickness but different stiffness..maybe a software problem

lets do the basic first
can you remove the springs and put them side by side .
looks to me the sound coming from the springs.
incase its the springs.i have a pair you can have.

Thanks, that would be great. I'm in SA though... yeah, you right one thing at a time. I just really want him to work.. what I do know is that he can rock side to side but only when he boots up..in control mode he can't.. initially I wanted to reset or somehow reload the software as I didn't know what the previous owner did..but let's leave that.. ill check the springs again..thanks again

looking at what youve seen so far do you think its a hardware problem i.e springs or possible a software..

Hey there, im not sure which firmware he has... i was trying the other day to search for other firmware (V2) I believe.. it surpose to or can help take out any bugs or default errors the robot might have. i also read another thread on here something that its risky to flash the firmware, although having flash previous firmware on other electronics was no problem.
