I have been talking about how I NEVER had a problem with my Cozmo-- really I never had to return the pump in my three years with it.
Last night I got home and got a sudden ambulance sounding alarm, which means that my battery was dead. I thought that this was strange because I got no “low battery” warning before it. Usually I get the low battery warning about 20 times before it dies (to the point that it can be annoying). This time it just died. I put a brand new battery in and it worked fine through the night. This morning the same thing happened on my way into university. (I was listening to music and heard an ambulance in the distance and ignored it-- until I realized all the people on the street were staring at me). So I bought a new battery replaced it again and ran to class (arriving 15 minutes late)… and hoped that it would last at least 12 hours again. Of course, in the middle of class it started going off. My professor made fun of my ringtone. I got up and left.
I searched all the forums here and anyone who had this problem reported that they just got a new pump.
I’m living in Hungary, though my pump is from the USA – so replacing it won’t be simple. So I’d like to try anything first! Has anyone had this problem? Anyone know about problems with the battery cap that could be causing it? Anything that I can try before mailing my pump across the ocean?
