Your zoomer is probably still under warranty give them a call at 1-800-622-8339, hours of operation are Mon - Fri, 11am - 7pm EST or email them at email@example.com
Here's a little more about boomer with some pics. Think I like zoomer better http://gizmodo.com/this-rc-dino-balances-on-two-rolling-feet-like-a-preh...
Here's a video
A look @ the zoomer boomer Dino at the ny toy fair. Video too. Looks pretty cool and fast
Looks like there is hope for a more advanced zoomer, can find to much info on this:
"Spin Master is expanding on its frighteningly facile Zoomer robotic pet dog with the older, wiser Zoomer+ in Beagle and Husky-ish breeds"
Not sure whats different about these ones, hopefully they are more advanced

Easter eggs (undocumented commands):
In a few days since I got Zoomer, I was able to discover 8 undocumented commands, and several aliases for documented commands:
1. new commands I discovered:
STAND GUARD or STAND UP (standing guard mode)
ZOOMER WILL: Sit up and wait, with his eyes looking left, looking right
DO: Approach him with your hand or foot in front of his chest
ZOOMER WILL: Nervously sit up and bark, pulling back with each bark
ZOOMER WILL: without laying down he will bark and pull back several times, then stop (demonstrating reaction to approach in standing guard mode)
ZOOMER WILL: dart backwards on his front wheels, changing it suddenly into forward and to the side on his back wheels
TAKE A BREAK or CASINO
ZOOMER WILL: go into the Slot machine game mode
ZOOMER WILL: have ashamed squinted eyes and a squeal, followed by stillness or walk
CHASE YOUR TAIL
ZOOMER WILL: chase his tail
ZOOMER WILL: do a one and a half backward circle break dance on his chin and front paws
SING A SONG
ZOOMER WILL: sing a song: "Wash Your Hands", "My Darling Clementine", or the third one I was not able to identify
(a) command SIT DOWN can be given also as SIT UP, SIT, or just UP
(b) command LAY DOWN will work as DOWN as well
(c) command GO TO SLEEP will work as SLEEP as well
(d) some other commands may also have abbreviated or alternative forms, but abreviation certainly does not work for all commands, asking Zoomer to SING or DANCE will not give expected results
I would love to a get a dog like this. Living dogs are usually hard for me to keep clean. We had one that wasn't potty trained it was so hard to keep things clean.

Did you manage to get it apart? Only asking because I needed to resolder the battery, and now the front and back motors are spinning in the opposite direction, not sure why. Was wondering if you had any photos of the main board.
<p>I use my PS3 controller charger...</p>
I found a Zoomer easter egg:
1: Hold Zoomer's head down until it starts making a barking sound.
2: If it was done right, it should have upside-down question marks in its eyes.
3: Sorry, I forget what you can tell him, but it's really weird stuff.
