Just to introduce myself I am a self confessed wowwee fan, having owned the robosapien, roboquad, roboraptor and femisapien.
I recently picked up a used/faulty RSV2 and RS Media for a song and was wondering if any of you might have encountered this problem before.
The RSV2, worked fine for about 10 minutes before I put it to dance mode and it went a wonky at the end of the dance. The music started to fade and sputter. After which I attempted to try a few different functions only to find that it stopped responding to my commands. After multiple on and offs, it finally triggered the self diagnostics sequence but the voice would trail off after a few seconds and it would stop responding. Taking the RSV@ apart, I saw the crumbling wire problem, which I assume is the cause of all these errors, including the dreaded bad motivator problem
The RS media is another story.
When I boot the RS Media, its eyes will pulse for about 30 seconds, the wow wee screen will show up and then it will say
"All systems go" or "Attention!" then. 789 in need of a recharge. At ease soldier." Then there is a humming sound that I believe indicates that it has shut down.
Is it similar to the wiring problem I am facing with the RSV2?
Any of you experienced similar situations before? I love thsese little bots and want to make them well again :(
