I recently purchased 12 Edisons and use them with

11 of the bots work fine, one is unresponsive.

It powers up (and I have used batteries from other working units). Both lights flash independently.

On pressing the record button once, it enters record mode (both lights on), and it appears to download code (untestable).

On trying to run the code, the axle reverses just a tiny bit and that is all.

On trying to use a bar code (three presses of the record button) the same occurs (the axle reverses just a tiny bit and that is all).

I have tried installing other demo code, swapping out the batteries, and removing the wheels to watch what happens. The firmware is uptodate and I have put the serial into the checker.

There doesn’t appear to be a Factory Reset option.

Any support with this would be greatly appreciated.

Heads up

The Australian Federal Parliament has passed a law that extends goods and services tax (GST) to low value imports of physical goods imported by consumers from 1 July 2018.

This means that all customers purchasing Edison robots and accessories with an Australian shipping address must now pay GST. The GST will be automatically added to your purchase and show as a line item on your invoice.

We've detected that you are in Australia, so we wanted to let you know that we have changed your settings to view our Australian site, which displays GST inclusive pricing.
