wowee robot dog malfunction

Hi

 I have just been testing a robot dog in a charity shop. They say that it has new batteries in but it doesn't seem to walk forward, backwards or turn. also when it rolls onto its back it doesn't seem to be able to get back onto its feet. Is it worth £4.50 or will it be too expensive to repair ?

Wowwee Rovio EASILY UNBRICKED?  Not really, this is how to unbrick or fix it!
It magically came back to life after having a firmware update and power failure at the same time (batteries stopped on robot).

TRI-BOT WHEEL-ENGINES BROKEN?

h-fuerst's picture

hello,

i just bought a used tri-pot for my son's birthday - but it can't move straight - it seems that the right front and the back wheel don't move correctly resp. they don't react properly to the remote directives - sometimes they're balking, move slowly and stuttering

i checked, but there were no filth or hair around the wheels.

i put in a set of new batterys in both - tri-bot and remote control, but the problem still exists.

i realized, when i press diagonally forwards-right or backwards left, the right wheel moves well

Nylon screw is mechanical connections

Nylon screws are best used to make mechanical connections which are strong and sturdy, considering the strength of solid nylon. Nylon screws are popular for home use, electronic devices and many other objects. Nylon screws work best if they are used at the right size for the type of application required.

Chimp resources needed

Looking for methods that work best;

1. Hack the remote (have computer emulate signal or switches)

2.emulate the remote

3.Gut the works and put in a completely different control board

4.Parasite a control system onto the works

Either way, it needs to be 'portable' without a bit umbilical running to the computer.
