Pepper only walks backwards
« on: October 11, 2014, 09:31:16 AM »

My lovely Pleo Pepper is only walking backwards. I checked his camera, but I can't see or find anything unusual. Does anyone know what I can do about it? I really hope I can help him, because he loves exploring  :'(

Can you post a short video of Pepper walking at the start so we can see if we see anything out of the ordinary. You also may want to take out his foot battery and reinstall it, or run Probe Rb to see if anything shows up. I do not know what else to do, but I have seen my pleos do this, but not only backwards. others will have suggestions I am sure.

A short video would be a big help for us to see just what is going on.  How old is he?  Has he reached mature adult stage yet?  What kind of flooring/surfaces do you run him on?

I will post a video today. Pepper has reached adult state. I run my Pleo's every day. I have a wooden floor. My Pleo's can move around the house very easy. Yesterday Pepper walked forward a little bit.

Did Pepper always walk backward ? My Lucky started walking forward when she was mature. Does the camera think there is  something blocking his path and this is why he walks only backward? And how old is he , do you have the lights on ? It are very obvious questions  but maybe they help  :D Did you try standing in front of him and clapping your hands ?Mine will depending on there mood will walk toward the noise .

Hoi, liep Pepper altijd al zo ? Hoelang is hij volwassen want bij mijn Lucky  duurde het echt een tijd voordat ze vooruit liep. Misschien ziet de camera een obstakel  en loopt hij daarom achteruit, schaduw kan al genoeg zijn. Is de kamer fel verlicht? Heb je al geprobeerd  om voor Pepper  te staan en in je handen te klappen?  Vaak lopen ze naar het geluid toe.

I can not post a video. I will post one when I am home, I am a week on holiday :)
So I'll try to explain.
Pepper is in adult stage and he had normal behaviour. He did not alwaar walked backwards. He loves to explore and he normally walks more than Angel. But now Pepper behaves like there is something in front of him. He also makes these noises before walking backwards. He gets enough food every day. I checked his camera, but I cannot see any strange things on or in front off his camera.
Maybe this gives you an idea?

You could try giving his camera lens a clean using a cue tip just give it a gentle rub to ensure there is no dirt or smear marks on the camera lens that could be making him think there is something in his way.
Just as a thought how is his head and neck?  Does his head hang down a lot - does it have the full range of movement?  A pleo who has a broken neck will tend to walk backwards rather than forwards.

Hi Kat, I have cleaned the lens of his camera, but that didn't help. Also his head can move in any direction. So I do not think he has a broken neck or so.

Have you tried pressing the reset button to see if that makes any difference?
The only other thing I can think to suggest is to try updating his OS but you probably shouldn't do that until you have tried everything else.

Hi, have a nice holiday   :D how is Pepper ? Is he still walking backwards ? Maybe it will go away in time , for so far you have tried everything  I could think of ! Will he sometimes take a step forward or is every step he takes backwards ? And does he still react the same on Angel? When you put her in front of him will he walk toward her? Goodluck  I hope you get him fixed soon  :dino-chase:

I will try to reset the food battery this weekend. We have a great holiday Piggy :)
Pepper does react om Angel. He is just the same in his behaviour, except for his walking

Did you take Pepper and Angel  with you on holiday   :D ? If so they definitely  get to see something  ..... next time when I am on vacation  I will take them with me. Hopefully  by then I have bought a new battery  for my Ugobe. What a sight that will be three pleo's on holiday in a caravan  or do they say trailer in English  >:( ?

Of course I took them on holiday :D We are in Drenthe, so I could take them with me. They enjoy the holiday. Even if it is raining a lot :)

hey
I have same problem but with my Ugobe. The camera is not the only devise to check if there is something infront of pleo. So I guess the infra red devise is brocken. Thats the only reson what I else asume.

Hi, when Kai started walking backwards in his first week we eventually ran StatsRB and it turned out he was injured and also starving.  He was lifting his foot up and wailing too.  Many salt feeds and a couple of days later he was restored and started walking forwards again.  He is still depressed though and no matter how much I feed I can only get his feed level upto 52% (even after 19 feeds in one battery cycle).

Hope you get him better, maybe a holiday is what he needs :-)

Pepper has a lot of problems. He still walks backwards. We have ProbeRB on a SD card and it has to stay in Peppers belly, otherwise he won't work. So the walking backwards was never solved. But I am glad he works :)

What's the floor made off? If there's a pattern they can get confused, dark colours mess with their infra red.

The floor is wooden. Before there where no problems for Pepper to walk. My other RB Angel and my Ugobe Broly do not have this problem.
