FAQ

Wrex the Dawg keeps saying, "Engines not working!" regardless of what button I press on the remote controller...

You need to start him by holding down the start button, located on his back, for approximately 3 seconds.

Wrex the Dawg bumps into obstacles...

At the beginning of the "malfunction" routine his obstacle avoidance is disabled.

When he has sped twitching and squeaking his obstacle avoidance will be reactivated. Alternatively, you might have turned off his IR sensors. To reactivate them, enter code 1111 using the buttons in his reprogramming hatch (refer to page 9). If this does not work try resetting him by turning him off and then on again, using the power switch located on his underside.

Wrex the Dawg has suddenly sped moving...

He is equipped with a safety device to protect you from trapping your fingers in his back legs. If he detects your hands or fingers on his back legs while he is moving, he might stop moving in order to protect you. To reset him, turn him off and then on.

Wrex the Dawg stops moving and sits down whenever I send a command to make him move forward...

His Edge Detection is being triggered. Some surfaces such as highly reflective surfaces can cause this to happen. You can disable Edge Detection (refer to page 9) to stop this from happening.

Wrex the Dawg does not obey his commands correctly...

You may have put him in Bad dawg mode. Refer to the section "Reset codes" in the user manual.

Wrex the Dawg does not always "see" things around him...

His IR sensors are based on reflection. He can see highly reflective surfaces, such as white walls or mirrors more easily and from greater distances than matte or black surfaces.

Wrex the Dawg does not always perform the actions I command in Program Mode...

Wrex the Dawg is built from scrap pieces! Like any dog, he is sometimes badly behaved and ignores your commands.

Wrex the Dawg's ear does not swivel around any more...

Wrex the Dawg is able to turn his ears 360°. If his ears are knocked accidentally or turned manually they might become unsynchronized and he will no longer be able to move them autonomously. To reset the ear, twist it to the forward position until it clicks. Be gentle but firm; do not use force.
