Checking the status LED for the state of aibo
You can find out the state of aibo by checking the status LED located above the power button (a).
|Lit in green||aibo is turned on. The remaining power of its built-in battery is sufficient enough for aibo to actively walk around or make sounds.|
|Flashing in green||aibo is turned on. Its built-in battery is running out of power and needs charging.|
|Flashing in green → Lit in red||aibo's power state is in the process of shifting from the turned-on state to the sleep mode.|
|Flashing in green → Unlit||aibo's power state is in the process of shifting from the turned-on state to the turned-off state.|
|Lit in red||aibo is in sleep mode. While in sleep mode, aibo does not move or make sounds and its eyes go black.
To wake up aibo, press the power button. When you want to stop aibo from moving for a while, for example, before you take it to somewhere else, put aibo into sleep mode.
|Lit in orange||aibo's built-in battery is charging. To charge the battery, be sure to lay down aibo properly on the charging station or the charging stand.
When the battery is sufficiently charged, the status LED turns green from orange.
|Unlit||aibo is turned off. To turn on aibo, press and hold the power button for 2 seconds. It takes a while before aibo is turned on.
When you do not intend to use aibo for an extended period of time, turn off aibo.
|Flashing in red||aibo needs owner's help. See What if the status LED flashes in red? to find out the actions that you should take.|
|Flashing sequentially in green, red, and orange||The system software is in the process of being updated. Wait for a while until the update completes and aibo gets up and starts walking.|
You can find out the remaining power of aibo's built-in battery on the My aibo app as well.
If the built-in battery is running out of power while aibo is turned on, aibo will go back to the charging station and charge the battery on its own (self-charging).
