Other keys IF letter keys other than [B] are pressed then Bambino will stop responding, press [B] again to recover control, if that doesn't work reprogram the Controller for Sony codes. Bottom two rows do nothing, they do not transmit Sony codes.

Bambino senses the presence or absence of objects by measuring the difference in reflected light with the Orange LEDs On and Off.
There are two forward facing phototransistor sensors shielded with black tubing.
There are two downward facing phototransistor sensors shielded with black tubing.
For the forward facing sensors if more light is falling on them when the LEDs are lit then there is probably an obstacle there.
It may be that the obstacle doesn't reflect much light in that case Bambino will not see it!
For the downward facing sensors if there is less light falling on them when the LEDs are lit than when they last self calibrated at the start of Wander then there is probably a hole such as at a table edge.
If Bambino calibrates the hole sensors while on a black surface then it probably won't see holes.
When turned on Bambino is will
TVR010 PicAxe IR-controller --------------------------- Before use, the transmitter must be programmed with the Sony transmit code. 1. Insert 2 AAA size batteries, preferably alkaline. 2. Press S and B at the same time. S is in the centre of the arrows. The top left red LED should light. 3. Press 0. The LED should flash. 4. Press 1. The LED should flash. 5. Press 3. The LED should go out. 6. Press the red power button (top right).
