My Roomba 650 won't turn on, even when I put in a new battery?

Hi! I bought my Roomba 650 in June 2016. In July 2017, it stopped working. It just stopped turning on. I thought it was a battery issue, so I bought a battery replacement. I replaced the battery, and it still will not turn on. What could be the issue? Is my Roomba 65 officially dead?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Can't run diagnostics if the Roomba won't turn on.


Hi. Thanks for the link, but it did not help. Anything else I can do?


I had the same problem. Called iRobot and they told me it was the home base. When my husband got home from work he took out the battery, bent the contacts up, put battery in and now works like a charm. Took him 2 minutes to figure it out.


Great! Sounds like my kind of man ;-) Thank him by bringing him a single rose


I had tried everything stated on the iRobot website and then stumbled upon the above suggestion by Jolayne. Worked like a charm. Thank your husband for me too!
