Many times, there is no other alternative but to reset your hoverboard. Most hoverboard owners are not familiar with the procedure of setting the hoverboards. Rather than going through trial and error, it is a good idea to learn about the exact resetting procedure you have to follow.
My article below will help you understand how to reset the hoverboard?
Once you go through the procedure and the associated information, resetting your hoverboard is easy.
How to reset hoverboard?
The procedure to reset the hoverboards is pretty easy. You have to hold the power button for at least 10 seconds.
When you do so, there will be beep sounds as well as flashing lights. You have to ignore all of that.
When holding the button, you are resetting it. That is why you shouldn’t leave the button midway.
After it is reset, the sound and the flash will die down for a few seconds. When that happens, you can be sure that the hoverboard has been reset.
However, there is another way to find out whether the hoverboard has been reset or not. I will highlight below.
How to test if you have reset your hoverboard?
The 1st thing which you have to do is to leave the power button. After that, you have to shut down the hoverboard.
You have to turn it back on again. The best way to test the hoverboard is to test its balance. If it has been reset, the balance will be accurate. You will not feel the need to recalibrate it again.
Thus, writing the hoverboard is one of the best ways to test if you have reset it or not.
In case if the hoverboard is not reset, you have to try and check the wire connections. There are proper troubleshooting steps for the same in the manual.
If there is inappropriate shorting among the wires, resetting the hoverboard will not do. You will have to examine the hoverboard to remove these connections.
The manual can help you with the same.
However, in most cases, when there is a hardware problem, simply resetting the hoverboard will do.
When should you reset your hoverboard?
There are a few things that can help you understand whether you should reset the hoverboard or not. I will highlight these steps below.
1. Improper balance:
The most obvious sign that you need to reset your hoverboard is improper balance. However, you need to pay attention while riding the hoverboard. Only if you have used it previously can you detect improper balance. Otherwise, everything will seem normal.
2. Hoverboard turning to one side:
Normally, the wheels of the hoverboard should be in proper alignment. A hoverboard is easy to control only when both the wheels are in alignment.
If there is any problem with the hoverboard, one wheel might move more as compared to the other. In that case, the hoverboard will turn to one side even without your command. It is not easy to go in a straight line in that case.
When that happens, it is a clear-cut sign that you need to reset your hoverboard.
3. One side of the hoverboard moving slow:
Whenever the hoverboard needs resetting, it will not move properly. In that case, controlling the hoverboard also becomes difficult.
One of the most common symptoms which indicate that you need to reset your hoverboard is when it starts moving slowly. That is because the internal mechanism of the hoverboard is not working in sync. Despite you attempting to move the hoverboard forward, it will not attain the same speed.
When that happens, the most obvious thing which you need to do is to reset the hoverboard.
4. Uneven height and level:
You might be thinking, how can the height and the level of the hoverboard get impacted?
Many hoverboards come with a sensor that can reduce the bumps and help you travel on uneven terrain. When the hoverboards are not functioning properly, the same sensors will lead to uneven height and level.
In that case, riding the hoverboard is downright risky.
When that happens, rather than hiring a professional to fix the problem, you must think about resetting the hoverboard.
In most cases, resetting the hoverboard will fix this problem. You will not have to worry about hiring a professional for the same.
5. Flashing of red lights:
Hoverboards have inbuilt indicators, which are let you know that there is a problem with them. The flashing of lights is one such indication.
Whenever there is a problem, the lights will flash red.
In most cases, the frequency of blinking will let you about the problem.
However, most of the problems can be solved similarly. By resetting the hoverboard, it will become easier for you to eliminate the problem.
Unless and until there is a hardware problem, resetting the hoverboards will fix the problem.
Whenever there is flashing of red lights while turning on the hoverboard or after that, resetting it makes complete sense.
6. Continuous beep sound:
Like flashing of red lights a continuous beep sounds also indicate a problem with the hoverboard. The frequency of beeping can help you diagnose the exact problem. The menu lists all the beeping sound meanings as well.
However, in most cases, the solution to all these problems is pretty simple.
You can reset the hoverboard using the procedure above. Once you do so, you will no longer have to sort the problem individually and find the individual fix. Merely by resetting the hoverboard, you will be able to solve the majority of the problems.
These are the 6 cases in which resetting the hoverboard makes perfect sense. If you try to diagnose the cause of the problem, it can take a lot of time and effort. Resetting, on the other hand, will allow fix problems quite easily.
As you can see, resetting the hoverboard is actually easy. With the help of my guide above, you can do so in a jiffy. Resetting will help you fix most of the problems.
