Robot Randomly Stops with "Please Clear My Path Error"
Hey folks, more posting this so that there's a record of it somewhere if others have this issue - we had this issue where the robot would randomly stop saying "Please Clear My Path" and an error code - I can't remember what it is now unfortunately. We've had this in the past which usually turned out to be a defective or aging battery, but not this time. It also started having the "Please turn my switch to on" error as per this guide/question.
In our case, it actually turned out to be defective/aging Capacitors on the board, and desoldering/replacing these (there are 7 of them from memory, all the same type/size and readily available at most electronics stores) solved both and all our issues - so definitely something worth trying if you're up for it, and a nice easy/simple fix otherwise! There are forums online (Russian ones and the Neato Forums from memory) that have a bit more information on this, so worth a Google I'd say :)
Thanks and hope this helps someone!
Is this a good question?
Found a couple of the forum links, though not the one I could remember in particular: http://www.robotreviews.com/chat/viewtop...
Still should be a starting point though - different issue, but same capacitors causing it :)
