Charging and receiving commands issue
« on: March 02, 2017, 10:01:46 AM »

I am experiencing some issues with kilobots.

The charging doesn't work at all. The battery remains the same level (before: yellow/after: yellow) after charging overnight. Due to this issue, some robots are down now.

Receiving commands/program from the OHC
Three of my kilobots have this issue.
Kilobot Nr.1 is not able to receive any commands sent by the OHC (it keeps blinking blue)
Kilobot Nr. 2 is not able to receive any new program (It seems that the old program that I uploaded last time cannot be overwritten).
Kilobot Nr. 3 is not able to receive any new program and always returns to sleep mode (blinking green) once it is out of the control distance of the OHC.

I tried to reinstall the bootloader to the kilobot which blinks blue. After selecting Autoconnect in AVR Studio, I receive the message "connect failed" and cannot proceed furhter.

Could you help me solve these issues?

for the charging problem, you have to place the ON/OFF jumper on the robot. Then you can place them in sleep mode to improve the charging.

For the AVR problem, you have certainly not correctly install the driver. The OHC must be recognize as AVRisp MkII.
