Almost faceplant...


Recommended Posts

Hi there

After a ride by car, a friend of mine opened the trunk and my little baby fell off of it... (Off course accidentally - I don't blame him). My EUC hit the ground many times, and nothing happened till then, so this time I though it'll be the same. So... I turned it on, stepped on the pedals and.... boom. After few desparate rescue long steps almost faceplantted. It completely lost X-axis balance keeping! )))-: 

I returned home by foot, carring it in my hand. Checked that:

1. after a 1-2 sec. after switching on, there is little power from motor to keep the balance, but after that the power declines to 0.

2. when I lift the wheel up, instead of accelerating the wheel and stopping for safety the engine, nothing happens. It did accelerated before, when I fell from it.

I unscrewed the side panel, but the main board looks ok. The same with the battery. 

I suspect that something happened to the gyro but I'm not electrician... )-:

Anyone could HELP??? Which part is damaged / needs to be replaced?? PLEASE

Enclosing the short movie of my EUC problem. )))-;


Best regards

Thank you all of you guys. 

Next short video maybe a little more helpful. 

I bought it when I was in China in February. Together with the wheel there is a remote - with 4 buttons. Button "A" - LED ligths mode, Button "B" - frontlight, "C" - horn and "D" - not sure, but Chinese seller told me it turns on/off the balance (I don't know if X-axis or Y-axis). When pushed for a few seconds, the wheel accelerated to the huge speed itself uncontrollably, so after one "attempt" I seldom used it.

On the flick attached please take a look, how the wheel behaves now (after pushing "D" button). Additionally, (it is not visible on the flick) the battery indicator can drop from max to 0 in one second, and after few seconds from 0 back to max.

Maybe this will bring something to your mind (-:

PS. Please remember that it fell off while turned OFF.

The tire seems to be not in the middle of the casing - could it be, that the tire has quite a resistance scraping at the casing?

As the people already wrote - you could check with a multimeter if the battery is gone or the motherboard. Reconnect the battery and check all the connections, too...
