Failed to put the turtlebot in full mode

I have the roslaunch turtlebot_bringup minimal.launch running on the turtlebot laptop and the turtlebot dashboard running on my workstation computer but and the icons are green aside from the breakers and the mode icon. When I attempt to switch the turtlebot's mode to full mode i get the error message:

"Failed to put the turtlebot in full mode: service call failed with error: service [/turtlebot_node/set_operation_mode] unavailable"

Any ideas as to why i cannot switch modes?

Is the mode icon grey or red? Do the breaker icons fail to work as well?

This type of error can occur if you do not have complete network connectivity between computers. Guide to Network Setup Troubleshooting

This can also happen if you restart the master without restarting the dashboard.

From my experiences, this issue is easily fixed. You ready: restart the robot. If that doesn't work, do this:

roscd turtlebot_bringup
sudo ./[scripts, maybe?]/install.bash <Network interface, probably wlan0>

Then, restart. If that doesn't work, charge your turtlebot.

This happens every once and a while to me as well. I normally play with it until it works. Best of luck, -Hunter A.
