Re: [IP] End of my Cozmo

I had a similar problem when I was away from home.  They had me clean  
the threads of the battery compartment and replace the cap and then it  
worked ok,  maybe that'll work for you.  I am very sympathetic because  
my cosmo is today out of  warranty and i  hate to think of changing  
pumps.  I'm going to try to hold out for the animus pump with the cgm  
which may come out this fall or winter.  Good luck, Sarah
