Old Content

If your device does not turn off by pressing the power button, that means your internal circuits are bad. You can easily replace the parts by purchasing one of our hoverboard repair kits.

How to Stop the Beeping

In order to get the beeping to stop, you should unscrew the 15 to 20 screws on the bottom of the device and located the battery. Then disconnect the battery at its plug.

How to Fix the Problem

For a problem like this, you shouldn't just change the mainboard. A bad mainboard can lead to a bad sensor board, and bad bluetooth module (if yours has bluetooth). So you should always change these parts together by purchasing our Hoverboard Repair Kit.
