I purchased in Feb. 2019 a new JD robot, just used a few times
Yesterday, I was doing the servos profile, the robot twisted up and said low battery (it was charged first) then a burning electrical smell, I shut it off
I recharged the battery, all seem ok now - do you know what that could have been?
Used it this morning ,robot is working fine now
robot will not turn on - dead 3/6/2019
I replaced the fuse as you suggested to no avail, still dead, what do I do?
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Experience early access to the latest features and updates. You'll have everything that is needed to unleash your robot's potential.
before charging.great to see you tackle the problem.howlong did the charging last before the batt was fully charged.?
if you can use a multi meter ,you can messure howmany volt there is in the batt.
It looks like the Battery is good, since the charger has a green LED. That would indicate that the battery can be charged and it is has a full charge. I believe the EZ-B protection diode may have been damaged during the event that happened when JD was twisted up. It's likely that all you need is a new EZ-B.
I purchased it at the robot shop - I had the EZ-robot humanoid, great robot
I sent it back tonight UPS
I will get another one as soon as I get credited
EZ robot people really help :-)
before assemble him.
hey jer the protection diode,do you mean the poly fuse?
I believe Robotshop may have replacement items that they can send you. Probably best to contact them before sending a robot back to them.
There is a polarity protection diode on the EZ-B main board.
i dont find any info whits one is the mainboard,or where the polarity protection diode is on the board.
any news on a replacement part or robot?
In the picture is the WiFi (top) board, the polarity protection diode is on the bottom (main) board. The diode is not user serviceable. It's easy to spot, it's right near the voltage input.
hi jeremie is this correct?
purchased it from https://www.robots.education
I have been talking to Dennis Kambeitz, I believe he is JD Sures's friend
very nice and knowledgeable people
