IPS unicycle not working

Recommended Posts

I have an IPS model 0260 i260+ which stopped working a few weeks back after coming off a curb, it had taken many bumps prior to this and had been working perfectly.  Now there's no power to the wheel and I've tried charging but still nothing.  I have taken it apart to see if there's anything obvious but everything looks like it's connected.  Does anyone have any ideas or know where I could get it fixed?  Really missing using it!

Any help would be really appreciated!

thanks

The usual questions we always ask:

  • What ACTUALLY happens when you try charging?
  • does the wheel turn freely when turned off?
  • Does the wheel still turn freely when you try to turn it on?
  • do any LED’s come on when turned on?
  • was there a smell of burning or any obvious burnt components?
  • while you had it apart, did you measure (carefully) the battery voltage from the battery output I.e. power plug - probably a yellow plug/socket like the below - but not necessarily

When plugged into power: The power indicator flashes once. The power adapter flashes red once then goes to green.

The wheel doesn’t turn freely. 

The power indicator turns green for a second then no light at all.

Nothing smells burnt

I don’t have anything to measure the battery voltage with.

I do have the yellow plug in mine but no way to measure voltage.

I am sorry to say that it sounds like the mainboard burnt something.  I've read that when the tire is hard to turn, one of the mosfets burnt up from a high current spike.  I think the mainboard on IPS is sealed in a box inside the wheel.
