How to calibrate a segway hoverboard?

Shaking, vibrating or moving incorrectly is the signs of incorrect calibration. It is often due to continual use. The most common sign of incorrect calibration is exposed when it proves to be sensitive while steering left or right. In calibration issues, the most common one is the unevenness of the footpads of the hoverboard while a user is standing on it.

If your hoverboard is synchronizing these issues than it is a good idea to calibrate your instrument.


  • Make sure the battery is full before calibrating your hoverboard
  • Shut down your hoverboard with the assistance of a power button
  • Now level your hoverboard and press the silver power button until hearing a beep
  • After this, the LED lights on the front of your device will flash. Now left your hover-board as it is for approximately 30 seconds.
  • After 30 seconds, shut off your hover-board once again by pressing the silver power button
  • Now, if after all the measures taken as mentioned above, your hoverboard is not calibrating just according to your expectations, you should check the other tools present in your system.

High roller hoverboard won’t charge

When you plug your hoverboard charger into a wall plug, the light present on the charger appears green. Make sure that all the prongs are correctly positioned.

After plugging correctly, the light on the charger appears red which means your battery is working correctly. If the battery is not recharging it is maybe due to two reasons:
  • A high roller hoverboard charger is out of order
  • A high roller hoverboard battery needs to be replaced

If a high roller hoverboard charger is out of order?

It is also possible that the charger of the hoverboard is broken. In most cases the charger or the slot of the device is defective that must be replaced to fix the error. Following is the guideline to test the charger of the hoverboard.

  • Plug the charger into the socket. A green light should be lit
  • Plug the charger into your hoverboard and the green light will turn red
  • If there is a red light then jump to step #7 otherwise continue following procedure stepwise
  • If no light is turned ON then check the power supply. If the power supply is working then your charger is defective
  • If the electric socket is working properly then you need to buy a new charger
  • To get a full battery charge, wait for 2-3 hours
  • After Charging the hoverboard unplug it from the charger and turn it ON by clicking the button
  • Now, if it does not turns ON it may be due to wiring problems. If it turns ON proceed to the next steps.
  • The battery will have a little amount of charge if both lights are ON. If one of the green light is blinking the device may have a 20% charge. If the red light is turned ON and the hoverboard starts beeping then the battery is very low, maybe up to 5%. Never ride a hoverboard in such a situation
  • In the case when both lights are green, you can ride the hoverboard. If then the battery does not last very long, then it may not be the battery but the defective charger.

 A high roller hoverboard battery needs to be replaced

If the light of your charger remains green than it is proof that your battery is either 100% full or it is a defective one. Then in this condition, your battery needs to be replaced.
  • Unplug the charger from the hoverboard to determine either it is full or empty
  • Turn your hoverboard ON after unplugging the charger
  • Now after getting charged your hoverboard fully turn it ON. If the light present on the front of your hoverboard remains red than it is a sign that your battery is defective and it needs to be replaced by a new one
  • If your hoverboard won’t turn on after a full charge then it is a clue that your battery is defective and it should be changed

What red lights indicate?

Red light is called as a warning light. A common issue arises which is indicated by the blinking of red light

  • There arises a bad connection between wires or they have loosened
  • Breakdown of the internal circuit
  • Any defect in balance sensors
  • Either one or both the wheel motors need replacement
  • The battery needs replacement

Loose cables

Cables need reconnection when they have gone loose or their connections have gone bad. Unscrew the bottom of the board and have a bird’s eye view on each section.

Once you have found the main circuit board starts maintaining the internal circuit by disconnecting or reconnecting the wires. If after maintaining the internal circuit your device does not work then there is a need for replacing the motherboard by a new one.

Malfunctioning of balance sensors

Any problem in internal wiring connections can cause defects in balance sensors. These problems will stop sensors from working. If after resetting your device your problem is not solved then a resetting kit is the only solution.

Bad working of wheel motors

The little devices are present that are connected via the motherboard to the wheels. For the battery side, the red light will blink five times and it will blink four times for the motherboard side.

To fix this problem you need to buy a new motor for a bad working wheel. You have to disconnect the old motor to replace a new one. Reassemble the tools to get a better device.

Faults in battery

Inside a hoverboard, a battery may go bad due to many external and internal factors. In this, you need to replace the battery. Make sure that the new one works with your model.

How to Fix a Hoverboard does not turn ON?

If your hoverboard does not turn ON, first of all, check the battery level. If you do not see a green light on the charger box, it means the inner circuitry is damaged. In the case of an orange-colored flashlight, your battery may be defective and needs to be replaced.

One Side of Hoverboard not working correctly

Common problem is that sometimes the hoverboard’s one side is not working. This problem arises due to a faulty gyroscope and can be corrected by replacing the gyroscope.

Hoverboard beeping and not moving

There are different reasons why your hoverboard beeps.

Hoverboard beeps while charging

When your hoverboard’s battery level is up to 20% its green light blinks. When your battery level is extremely low (less than 5%), it starts beeping. In this situation do not ride the hoverboard.

The hoverboard is not turning OFF and keeps beeping

This problem arises due to a faulty motherboard. You should invest a hoverboard kit online or bring it to repair. Keep in mind to match the new motherboard to yours otherwise, it causes a problem. You can do this by noticing the color of your hoverboard.

There are several reasons your hoverboard is not moving

Sometimes your hoverboard is ON but it does not move. This problem usually arises due to a faulty gyroscope that resides on both sides of the hoverboard.

When hoverboard light stays ON one side, it means the gyroscope of that side is faulty. There is no way to repair the gyroscope but you can replace it with a new one.

Otherwise when Hoverboard all lights stay ON but the hoverboard does not move is maybe both side gyroscope is not working. Hence the light remains ON but does not moves a bit.
