Anyone having light issues?



  • Anyone having issues with your lights flashing or intermittently working? Both of my boards have this issue, and I haven't abused them or bathed them in water.



  • @J-Glide Yea actually.... The white light on the battery(rear) side of my board works like 20% of the time. Which is weird because almost all of my riding is done in regular stance with the red lights on and not the headlights.
    I'm thinking it's because I take the board in the rain fairly often and maybe some water got to it. Or maybe from all the Ledge Drops hitting the tail side as I ride off... (I abuse my board). Not that big of a deal since it's the tail side. Is yours acting up on both sides? How bad is it?



  • @J-Glide Yeah, my rear (non-sensor) side white LEDs stopped working a month ago. Seems a little petty, but I plan on returning it for repair while the warranty is still intact.



  • @J-Glide isn't there a mode where the lights flash/strobe? Could be active somehow instead of the always on/off mode.. might be worth checking.. if it is broken hopefully it isn't too hard to fix on your own if it's out of warranty.. given they are just simple LED lights.. let us know how it goes.



  • Had a problem with one of our boards the lights wouldn't turn on the LEDs were defective, but when I stand still on the onewheel sometimes the lights flicker but that's because of transferring weight, other than sending one in at a time(so your not without an OW) I wouldn't know what to do unless your cool with being the rat to open up the LEDs and see what you can do, maybe even different color lights if somebody was willing to try to do it.



  • @slydogstroh it's not too bad on one of my boards, but the other board the white lights on the non-sensor side won't come on anymore. I suppose I'll have to send them both in for repair when I get my plus.



  • if your on android there's another app you can use i am thinking it might be a software problem



  • @jew_fro_1009 it's definitely not a software issue. Just minor bumps and taps on the board cause the light to flicker. It's a break in the circuit somewhere.



  • did you try opening up the circut board to see what was wrong it would void you warranty but it would show you the problem



  • @jew_fro_1009 I'm way beyond warranty, but I'm more concerned with it being water tight when I put it back together.
