MCM5 received but not balancing

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I just received my MCM5 from Aliexpress today. I turned it on and : 

  • I hear the fan
  • I see the LEDs blinking
  • I hear some bips (sometimes one long continuous bip and sometimes 5-6 bips and then no more)
  • but the wheel wont auto balance

I tried calibrating with the Begode app but no luck. I also check the battery on the app and it says 100% charged.

Of course I sent a message to the seller.

But any ideas from some MCM5 owners ? Or anyone. 
My first idea would be that the motherboard has broken during the trip but I'm not sure ...

Must be the travel transport lock, there is a key combination to unlock it. (search those terms and you should find it)

That thread you're referring to is stickied at the top of this subforum :)

Im sure a lot of people's hearts sink when their new $1k+ wheel wont work right out of the box, but rest assured this function is to prevent the wheel turning on by mistake and causing havoc during shipping. All normal behavior.

Good there is a sticky, arrantly not visible enough..
Gotway Begode should put a label with instructions on the power button.

Hi I have the same problem with a brand new wheel which seems to turn on but will not balance.

I can't find any information or sticker on the wheel with a code or anything, or any setting in the app which refers to a travel lock.

Ideas gratefully received  !

Many thanks
