03 April 2016 Question by: Rapid Customer | Product code: 70-8850
Q. I will be using these in a classroom, rotating after a couple weeks to a new class. What is the best way to reset the unit for a fresh class?
A. Hi Stephanie, thank you for your question. The reset procedure is on page 41 of the manual.


20 January 2016 Question by: Rapid Customer | Product code: 70-8850
Q. How can I reset Meccanoid to factory defaults as the robot will not now recognise the change of name?
A. Hi Graeme, thank you for your question. There is no need for you to go through the whole reset process. If you have gone about changing Meccanoid’s name, you can bypass autonomous mode where Meccanoid is awaiting his new name (blue eyes) by pressing the blue button on the Meccabrain. He will then switch to ‘Main Menu’ (green eyes) and from there, you can go through the original process of resetting the name to its ‘default’ – Meccanoid. To reach this stage you must say “settings” followed by “name robot”. The full list of commands can be found at the back of the instruction manual, page 56.
