The Robosapien V2 robot has been shipping for about six weeks now – long enough for some problems to start cropping up, and for users to experience some difficulties. Thankfully, WowWee seems to be paying attention to all the customer feedback. They created and posted an extensive troubleshooting guide on the V2 website.
Robosapien V2 Troubleshooting Manual
The 14 page manual includes a whole range of detailed instructions including an explanation of the V2’s different walking gaits; how to get it to walk reliably on various surfaces and floor coverings – including shag carpet; why it sometimes falls over and how to avoid it happening; how to swap the V2 footpads; muffling the speaker; and many other tips and work-arounds.
Probably the most useful bit of information is the control “cheat sheet” – a color coded table mapping all the remote control buttons to the various functions.
