Ensure the board Bluetooth is ON. Bluetooth automatically turns ON after pressing the power button in most of the hoverboards. In case no devices are connected, the Bluetooth automatically turns OFF. Press the power button again if you don’t get the flashing or beeping.

Scenario 2: Bluetooth Device Is Not ON

Ensure Bluetooth mode is enabled on your smart device.

Scenario 3: Out of Range

If the power is ON, and Bluetooth is also ON in your device, but still the hoverboard is not discoverable you might be out of range. Bluetooth holds the maximum range of three feet, but it can vary. Indoors, the range is relatively less. When the devices are within pairing range, try to reconnect them.

Scenario 4: Too Many Devices

Check if too many devices are already connected as hoverboards can pair with a maximum of two or three devices at a time. Disconnect all other unnecessary devices.

Scenario 5: Out of Calibration

If no unnecessary devices are connected, you may need to calibrate the hoverboard if the issue continues. Calibration depends on the functionality of the gyroscope sensor board. Again, you can refer to the product manual for calibration instructions.

Scenario 6: Faulty Bluetooth Receiver
