How To Fix A Hoverboard? So many people seem to be having trouble with this, namely a constantly flashing red light on their hoverboards that simply will not go away, and will not cause one of the wheels and that whole side of the scooter to work.
- After a while of usage, a Segway could show a red light issue at the central spot where usually a green light appears when you press down on the footpad to scoot around.
- If a red light appears, you will not be able to use that side of the self-balancing scooter at all. When one side falls idle, there is not much you can do to ride the nano-scooter.
- Either the device is off-calibration (meaning you need to balance it out so both footpads are flat and parallel to each other; no skewing) or the battery has met with some damage or internal issue that it fails to recognize certain functions; hence the red light that comes on probably by mistake.
- Once you have balanced out the scooter, made sure it is level in every regard, hold down the power button afterwards. Wait for the Segway to turn off.
- Press the button again, keep your finger on that button, keep it pressed even after the device comes on.
- A green light will then appear in the spot where before you saw red. Let go of the power button when you see that.
- You are not out of the woods yet. After the green light comes on and you take your finger off the button, red replaces it once more. There will be a beeping sound and the red light goes away.
- Now, you are probably in the clear. But first, step back on your hoverboard. Everything should be fine, it should be working, a dim or bright green light returns into action when the self-balancing scooter is maneuvered.
If the problem continues to pose a hassle, it is probably a major battery or internal component error interfering with your using the hoverboard. Take out the user’s manual, check out what it has to say, else take your issue to the manufacturer.
