Robosapien V1 Remote Question

Hello.

I have recently bought robot and remote (separately). Robot seems to work fine (when I click on the button it says something and moves arms and legs for 10-15 seconds). The remote has a problem. Green light is never on. I have tried several batteries, all brand new - the result is the same. When I press the buttons in the center of the remote (left-right-up-down) for several time and then click some of the other buttons (select, R, L or P) lights flashes red for an instant and robot starts turning right. Then I do the same thing again, red lights flashes for an instant again and the robot starts moving forward. When I do it again - it goes right again, and then straight and so on. Anybody had similar problem? Is there some kind of special setting? Can the remote be fixed?

Thanks, Damnjan

Are you asking about the Robosapien controller or the EZ Robot ezb3/ezb4 robot controller? Robosapien and it's controller are made by Wowee Robotics... EZ Robot has nothing to do with Wowee or it's products... I suggest finding a user forum for Robosapien to help you with this...

sounds like the remote is defective, I have several of the Wow wee bots V2's RS Media and an old original Robosapien that I bought new for my kid but he wanted the roboraptor instead so I ended up keeping the Original robosapien in my collection.The green light should come on the remote to work properly. I have seen them selling on Ebay fairly cheap sometimes if you keep checking.There is also a leggo Mindstorm USB transmitter you can buy fairly cheap on ebay that lets you hook up to your computer with a free program called Robosapien Dance machine found on the internet,Run all kinds of cool scripting programs to have the little guy seem "Alive".;)
