To enable you to get the most out of your hoverboard, we have compiled some steps you can take to ensure you derive maximum pleasure and find the device also easy to use and have listed some challenges you might encounter while using the device and steps you can take to resolve such issues.


  1. Hoverboard can’t balance

Your hoverboard might be off balanced and might not be able to determine if you are on a flat surface, heading up or downhill or even standing on its board or not.

You might experience this when

  1. Your hoverboard’s wheel turns backward when pressing forward.
  2. Slants forward when you stand on it.

So, here are steps to assist you to get your board back to the way it should be.


Step 1: Recalibration – To recalibrate,

  1. Please power off the scooter first.
  2. Then keep both pedals of the hoverboard horizontally (IMPORTANT).
  3. Press the power button for 7 seconds until the buzzer sound “beep, beep, beep.”
  4. Power off the hoverboard then powers on. The hoverboard should be ready to go.

We recommend you re-calibrate the hoverboard every month for better performance.  Another reason why you should master the re-calibration process.


Step 2: If the recalibration doesn't work. It is the motherboard issue. It is not easy to replace the motherboard. We recommend that you send it back.


  1. Hoverboard can’t hold the charge

Are you concerned about why your hoverboard does not hold charge for as long as it should, or why it does not charge when plugged to a wall socket? Another example is when your device worked for a couple of hours and then just stopped working, battery dead! Some steps are mentioned below to assist you to detect the issue and help resolve it.


Step 1: Check the charge port on the hoverboard. There are 3 pins. If pins are damaged or broken, the hoverboard will not be showing charging when it is plugged in. To charge correctly, align the 3 pins with connector properly. If the charge port is damaged or broken, we recommend to send it back and fix it for a customer.


Step 2: Check charger adaptor. If step one works well, there is a light indicator on the black charger adaptor.

  1. If the red light is on, that means the charger adaptor and the charger circuit working well, in this situation, if the hoverboard still cannot charge, that is the battery issue. The different model needs to take a different action. For SBW666, C1, Z1, T88SE, we recommend to send it back, because the battery is sticky with tape. For T67SE, due to the battery is not used tape, so we can send the battery (send only C1+ battery for all 6.5” hoverboard and with charger) to the customer and let customer repair it or just send it back (Ask customer which is preferable).
  2. If the green light is on, that means the battery is full or the charge circuit/battery is not working. In order to check which is defective, please use the hoverboard for 10 more minutes to make sure the battery is not full. If the green light still on, we recommend to send it back and replace a new one.
  3. If no lights on, the charge adaptor need replace, we need send a replacement charger to the customer.

If the customer doesn't want to replace the battery, we can send a new replacement.
