[SOLVED] Edison does not scan barcode

I have a V2.0 robot that has been working fine until yesterday. All of a sudden, it will not scan any barcodes. When I press the round button three times, it moves very very slightly (less than a few cm), then sounds the successful download sound. The motor and wheels are working because the robot responds correctly to programming.

Any suggestions? Thank you.


Never mind. I think it just needed fresh batteries.

Glad you got it working!

Just confirming for anyone else who reads this post. When Edison V2.0 stops driving, the first step is to replace the batteries.

Please avoid using “Heavy Duty” or “Super Heavy Duty” batteries as these do not provide enough power to move Edison after they get even a little flat

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.

OK got it!    Take me to the GLOBAL SITE instead
