Help - Wont turn on!!! light on then blink then off:(

  • This is really odd - I got her to wake up this evening for a brief second - managed a little trip across the garage, grabbed a screenshot of the settings page and then dismounted and she retreated back into hibernation

    I got loads of flashes on time/wasn't expecting/looking at first so not sure how many but defiantly more than 11

    and got a warning battery message so I plan to leave her plugged in all night and take a second look in the morning :|




    fingers crossed for tomorrow - is there a usb port anywhere on the onewheel/any way to do a proper diagnostics report with the app?

  • So after a night of charging I managed to wake her and go for a ride - got to the post office and had 85% battery, got home with 60%

    3.22 mi
    7.90 mph
    19.51 mph

    did some odd jobs around the house went to power her up again and got no luck - this time I got 11 flashes I think ( last time it was defiantly more than 11) so from the hand book thats probably "Bad hall sensors" whatever they are . . .

    anyone got any ideas :( ?

  • Actually just went out again and had another go at turning her on its 12 flashes (watched it twice to be sure) - light on then quickly off again wait a while then 12 flashes :( the manual says "Bad motor" I am guessing this aint an easy fix ...

  • Is there a manual online? I know I didn't get a physical one with my board...

  • Owner's Manual and other stuff here:

  • @eis when did you bought your board please ? How ofen have you used your board ?
    This few questions to learn about the reliability of it.

  • @mha got it on the 9th September 2015 used it in and out of work for 6 days (Thursday to Monday) (mile mile and a half) and a few rides at lunch time and what not, had some fun Monday evening and on Tuesday - she is basically brand new

    I would say I picked it up quickly (extreme/elevated on day one) ... but even riding it as hard as possible from the word go a week of health is not right :(

  • so it was sort of working until yesterday, got into uni (5 min journey tops) then I did have a ride or two, but not for long maybe 10 min tops, then when I went to go back to my car it decided to have a blink party :( it was blinking twice and wouldn't start

    Got half way back to car and decide to try again and somehow it worked, charged it up - was on about an hour - when I got home, went to use it this morning and I am back to the start the light on and then half blinking and going off :(

  • so she is back stateside - just landed in Kentucky! will hopefully be fixed soon :)

  • @eish what was the conclution from support? I think I have the same problem

  • board was sent off and returned - there was something up with the connectors if i remember correctly

  • Thanks
    Do you remember which connectors?
