Is my rovio broken

Alex1000's picture

Just got my rovio from ebay, second hand, seller hasn't mentioned any faults but when I turn it on, the neck camera keeps and clicking like it can't raise up. Is this a fault or do I need to set it up. I can't connect it to my computer either and it says there is an error when I try to upgrade to firmware 2.3. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Rovio UPnP with Sky Broadband

Hi all,

ive owned my Rovio for about three years and am ashamed to say I've never been able to connect it over the internet, just my wifi. We have moved home a couple of times but now I'm determined to get it working! This is obviously the simplest of problems for you guys but for me it's a ninja task! If someone could help and perhaps give me a step by step hand I'd really appreciate it.


thanks in advance,



Rovio Dock IR Problems

Hi Guys,

I have had a Rovio for many many years but have always had the most terrible internet connection, so remote viewing has been awful. In fairness, it's been a long time since I even drove Rovio using my iPhone. In the meantime, it has sat in the corner of the room on charge. A couple of weeks ago, I managed to get upgraded to 38MB broadband so exitedly thought it was perfect to dust off the Rovio and actually get some use out of it!

When I installed the Rovio software installer wiht cam connected, I got an error mesage that "please disconncet rovio from your computer". I disconnected the cam and re-runed the installed.exe. However the same error message popped up again althrought the cam has been disconnected. I am stuck at the very beginning even did not get the set up program installed. This PC is win 8 system.
