how to diagnose and repair broken hoverboard

This how-to generally works with most self balancing electric scooter smart wheel / hoverboard / mini segway

many issues arose due to some cables went loose or got  disconnected inside the control unit of the hoverboard

so what caused that? Vibration from riding or shabby workmanship from the factory that assembled hoverboard in a hurry and didn’t do extensive testing / QC.

usually it’s an easy DIY fix, which can save you a lot of headache and hassle trying to get a replacement.

    I want to use the wheel from a H-board for my own design. I just want to use direct DC power to the 3 cables. How can I get it to run
    by “fooling” the control cable?
    Thank you.

    My hooverboard won’t start which I think the circuit board is fried. I opened it today and saw a small burnt spot. Any recommendation on where to buy a circuit board. I can change it myself from watching your videos.

    Thanks,
    Fred
