Removing NAO‘s head ¶
Why removing the head ¶
You will need to remove the head of your robot if:
- your robot does not turn on,
- you want to change the head, or
- the support asked you to do so.
Removing the head ¶
To remove the head:
Make sure your robot is:
Wait 60 seconds in order to be sure all electronic capacitors are depleted.
Find the head lock buttons.
To do so, run your fingers under the head: you’ll feel square lock buttons on the left and right of the neck.
|Firmly grip the head on either side of the robot’s face, and push up on the two lock buttons, making sure they are fully pressed in.|
Now lift off the head. There should be no resistance.
If it is difficult, push the lock buttons up more firmly.
Replacing the head ¶
To replace NAO‘s head:
|Align the cross-shaped hole of the head with the cross-shaped neck.|
You should make sure that the head fully clicks in; both buttons should snap back into place.
Without pressing either lock button, gently attempt to lift the head up to ensure a solid connection.
The head should be secure.
If not, repeat the process and be more careful with your alignment.
