Title: Pleo RB not waking up (green LED)
Post by: mattmens on December 24, 2017, 08:27:02 AM
Hello everyone,

Usually I only read about other people's problems with their Pleo (RB), but this time I'm the one having an issue with our little Bo. He's an RB model. Problem is, at the moment he's in sleep state (went to sleep and after that, battery was empty) and won't wake up when I turn him on with a charged (green light on charger) battery. The small LED on his belly turns green and stays that way, but there's no response; no sound, humming or movement. I can't get him to start up, wake up or anything. Already replaced the clock battery the right way.

Do you have any tips, tricks or a solution to this problem? Thanks in advance.

Did you try the reset button?

Did you try the reset button?
Yes, I did. Used a thin paperclip, first to press it shortly. LED turned red and then green again. Then I pressed it for 10 seconds, LED stayed red as long as I pressed the reset button. Then 20 and later even 30 seconds, but every time the result was the same: pressing the reset button made the LED turn red, letting go made it turn green again.

What I'm doing now is letting it "turned on" (for lack of a better word) till tomorrow morning, maybe my Pleo will wake up again on its own.

EDIT: had my Pleo RB on the whole night, nothing happened and this morning the battery was empty (no green LED). Completely charged the battery again, for about 8 hour. Put it inside the Pleo, turned it on, yet again: nothing, but the green LED. I guess that's it then.

Try replacing the battery in his foot.  This can be an issue for RB's.

If that doesn't help, try loading a skit onto an SD card, turn him off, putting the card in him, and then turn him on.  This should help identify if it's a hardware problem or not.

The foot battery can be finicky, make sure itís sitting under the smaller metal tabs and over the longer one. It sounds like heís stuck in nighttime.
