We have a faulty rs media which I have started to take apart to check all wiring. I have it connected to power supply with no sd card inserted. When robot powers on eyes light up and flash, wowwee screen comes on and robot says 'system check' something 'personality rom' and 'system check'.
I need to repair the end of the video ribbon cable that attaches to the media board. Replacements don't seem to be readily avaiable, so I want to trim off the small end damage and use the existing cable. My question is - what is the best method to remove the plastic coating on the cable to expose the metal within the ribbon cable?
So here I can Download RS Media personalitys right? Yeah that's true like the "C3PO" Personality. And before I download it-Can I hear how he speaks then? Perhaps A small recording of the Voice? Yeah I know I can Watch Videos on Youtube but NO ONE have made a Video with this personality. Only "Jobeanvideos" But his Videos aren't the best... Ah Whatever.
RS media powers up no problem goes thru its boot mode responds to commands for awhile and then powers down stating that it needs a recharge even if new fresh batteries are installed. Sometimes operates for a few minutes at random timelengths
sometimes powering down as soon as it has booted.
Appreciate any help from the members.....!
< would a re-flash reflash of code help? etc etc...>
I will try to explain my isue briefly at first. Just in case it's possibly an easy fix... untill futher detail is required.
after upgrading my RS Media V1 with V2 firmware it works nearly perfect. The only thing I could not understand was that the USB-Net option had only the 'Off' function. I've tried to flash the Kernel with the 'RSMV2ReloadFiles' but I got the error message 'Kernel fails / wrong size'. Checking out the firmware version with 'RSMCheckVersion', it's all ok. All points show 'RSMV2'. I flashed the RS Media again with 'UpgradeRSMV1toRSMV2'. It was all ok, but there was no option to switch on the USB-Net funktion again.
I'm new to robotics and this is my first post in the forum. I saw a listing on E-Bay where someone was selling a phone that had software on it to control RS Media robots. I was wondering if anyone knows the source of this software as I have never seen this before.
Here is the link to the listing:
This is so cool! Check it out:
New to the board, but didn't see anyone with this problem...
Our RS Media V2 is stuck in control mode (and Billy Joe Sapien). It behaves as if the the remote R-shift is always depressed, which would explain why the M-button is useless. But when I opened up the remote, everything seemed just fine. Could it be a problem with the robot? Software or hardware?
