iRobot 5800 Scooba Vacuum\015 I purchased a Scooba from someone brand new, never out of the box. It worked about four times and did a great job! After about a week it just would not turn on. It shows that it is charging and then fully charged but when I unplug the charger and push power I get nothing. No light, no beep, nothing. I tried contacting iRobot for help but received no response. I finally figured it was the battery (dated 2005) and purchased a new battery. It arrived last night, I installed it and pushed power. It came on right away which confirmed to me that the other one was just dead. Well, I go to put the Scooba on this morning and again, nothing. Nada. No power. Anyone? Thanks so much!\015

The drive belt may need replacing; and the attachments, hoses, and filters may need unclogging.
What should I do if the remote control doesn`t work? – Replace the batteries in the remote control. – Make sure the main power switch on the bottom of RoboVac is in the “I” position. – Make sure RoboVac is fully charged.
