The Deebot D35 will not show any signs of charging or powering on.

Device Power is OFF ¶ 

If the device does not show signs of power, check the bottom of the Deebot. Locate the power switch and set to the the ON position. If the power switch is already in the ON position change the switch to the OFF position and manually dock it to the charging station. After three hours attempt to turn on again.

Deebot has not made a connection with the charging dock. Be sure that Deebot has made a connection with the charging dock pins. Move the robot manually to make the connection if necessary.

Battery Will Not Hold a Charge ¶ 

The battery is maintaining a full charge for as long as specified:

Battery Has Been Idle ¶ 

Battery has not been used in a long time and lost some of it’s capability to hold power. Place the robot on charging dock by hand, remove after charging for 3 minutes; repeat 3 times. Charge normally for 3-5 hours. If device still does not charge the battery may need to be replaced.

Battery Needs to be Replaced ¶ 

The battery is faulty and is unable to hold charge or be charged. Push tabs on both sides of the battery pack to remove. Insert new battery pack and press until it's fully locked into place.

Obstruction and Entanglement ¶ 

The Deebot D35 has encountered an obstacle and stopped the device from functioning correctly. Turn the device off. Gently lift the Deebot D35 and remove any obstacles such as power cords, area rugs or curtains in the path of the device to correctly function. If the device still has issues, remove dust bin and filter and remove debris.

Charging Station Re-Docks Before Cleaning is Finished ¶ 

If the battery is low, then the Deebot will automatically switch to Return to Charger Mode, and will return to the charging dock to recharge which is normal and no solution is required.

Floor Surface and Room Complexity ¶ 

The amount of time it takes the Deebot to clean depends on what surface it is working on and/or how complex the room is. If the room is too complex, it may return to the charging station to recharge before completing the cleaning.

The device is having trouble completing its automatically scheduled task on time or completely.

The Scheduling Function is Cancelled ¶ 

Reset Deebot by pressing and holding the start/pause button for 3 seconds. Set the current time. Once the scheduling has set successfully, the device will beep 3 times and indicator light will turn blow. If the scheduling is cancelled, the device will beep 3 times and the indicator light will turn green.
