I was pretty upset about my new jacket but luckily my dry cleaner was able to fix this:
@jerimiya I'm one of the least technical people I know. What I get from your post is that if you move the board around and stand on the sensor pad, that should fix the problem. I've tried that - and it doesn't. Only unscrewing and re-screwing fixes it. In the past I've even removed the bumper and lifted up the footpad and looked underneath it, and sprayed the area with compressed air -- but none of that turned out to be necessary. I just remove the four screws - test it - and then put the four screws back in.
Next time I'm going to try removing just three screws. Does anyone have a much faster alternative to the Allen wrench?
@mrb I don't have any issues after a dry ride, though. And once I unscrew and re-screw, it works fine.
Without fail, every time I ride in the rain or through too many puddles or rinse off the OW, the next time I take it out, it won't start. That is, it'll power on, but the wheel will slide easily back and forth on the ground. The app shows the "Need Personal Space" error. I unscrew the sensor footpad and then screw it back in, and then it works again.
Does this happen to anyone else?
@RLY Well, with over 6,000 miles on your Onewheel, I can see how the forums might have become boring for you. (What the hell is the deal with that, anyway??)
That was some sort of error. I only started riding on September 1, 2016. I just refreshed my app and the error's gone from the leaderboards.
