What do RED Flashing indicators mean

Note: When dealing with exposed circuitry, be sure you are in as static-free of an environment as possible.
And never test your hoverboard upside down.

Here is a comprehensive list of what the flashing red lights mean:

Before you do anything, try this reset procedure:


Make sure the hoverboard is turned off, both wheels on the ground, and hoverboard is standing level to the ground on both sides. Without moving the hoverboard, press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. Release the power button after 10 seconds. Then turn the hoverboard off. Once you turn it on, the hoverboard is reset. 

Upon activation, if your scooter's LEDs flash a sequence it means something is wrong.

1 Flashing red dot: Loose cables or bad connection. Unscrew and slowly remove the lower part of the body. Check to make sure all cables are securely connected. I recommend you disconnect and reconnect all wires and plugs one at a time. If that doesn't fix it, send me a picture of the insides of your hoverboard to info@hoverboardrepair.com with a small explanation of what is wrong.

2 Flashing red dot: Internal circuits malfunction. It's best to order one of our kits and replace the internal parts. Send me a picture of the insides of your hoverboard to info@hoverboardrepair.com with a small explanation of what is wrong.
