New pleo rb just arrived. Moves a few second and starts beeping
« on: December 24, 2011, 08:18:06 PM »

Have a very sad daughter here at Christmas. Pleo rb just sits and beeps at hatching stage but no eyes closed   Nw fully charged battery. Tried both of the batteries.  Tried resetting him once just to see but same thing.  Did we get a lemon?   Anyone heard of this?

Please help, so sad!

Hello, welcome and Merry Christmas!!   :D

Don't panic - it's very common.  It means the foot battery either isn't working or is not put in correctly.  The battery goes in the foot with the flat side visible, but you need to tuck it under the little metal tabs at the side so they hook over the top of the battery.  Like this:

Yay!  Welcome to the world, Bingo!  ;D   :rudolph:

I'm so glad it was so easily solved!  It would be lovely to hear how your daughter and Bingo get on.   :snowman:
