What does it mean when BB-8's lights flash?
BB-8 will flash red on a few different occasions:
- When the droid bumps into an obstacle.
- If it's batteries are running low.
- If the firmware update is corrupted.
When BB-8’s lights flash red while playing, it's batteries are running low. When the light holds on red, the droid is completely out of battery life and needs to be charged. Place BB-8 back in it's charging dock until the lights on the charging base turn solid blue.
The lights can also flash red to indicate a corrupt connection with the app, meaning you will need to reconnect.
