Diagnosis:
Aibos owner had an attempt at repairing its DHS from the 210 but failed.

 

 

He had even attempted to repack the battery, which failed. PCB is burned 😦

Starting with the 210 head. 
The flexi was torn by the owner repair attempt, one of the pot connection get lost, luckily I could fix it. Otherwise normal DHS/TAS/PAS repair without any issues.

 

 

The 210 head is working fine now…
The 220 head will not boot – Death Tone – is the only reaction.

Unfortunately, not communication on the I2C data bus. Something is killing the communication. I have to go deeper on the weekend.
