HOW TO RESET YOUR HOVER-1 EAGLE SCOOTER! FINALLY! If ifixit let’s this post?!
OK I may be the first person to figure this out (no help from Hover 1 support) so I’m going to let you know how I was able to get my shorted Hover-1 Eagle to turn on again. Here goes:
Step 1. - Plug the charging cable into the Eagle scooter.
Step2. - Hold down the blue power button (don’t let go.)
Step3. - While holding down the blue on/off/power button, now unplug the charger cord from the scooter. As soon as the cable is unplugged you can release the blue power button and your screen should come back on.
This took me FOREVER to figure out on my own and I figured it out due to complete desperation. I tried adding a 36v back-up battery in parallel to double my ride time and needless to say despite working I ended up shorting the feed wire on accident. The short ended up putting the scooter in a safe mode (I think) which wouldn’t allow me to turn it on. So I tried a bunch of combinations of holding the blue button down for long periods of time cranking the brake and throttle to no avail. Until I thought…what if I try doing this with the power cord in. I just happened to plug the cored in while holding down the blue button and then pulled the cord out and released the button to find my screen lit up and came back on! That made me super happy - so I’m sharing this info with the rest of my eagle1 compadres. Good luck hope this works for you! Your friendly scooter hacker -heatgap
Well no wonder it won't turn on. It's severly depressed at having the blues! Sorry couldn't resist. :-) First thing I would do if trying to find the problem of this sort is to access the battery with the voltage settings on a multimeter and make sure that it is indeed fully charged. Determining if the switch is operational would be the next step. Visual inspections of the scooter's electronics area(s) for such signs of damage such as component failure, cracked or dry solder joints, loose connections or wires would also be indicated as a proceedure to follow to determine the cause of your problem.

My scooter led display comes on. But just blinks rapidly after we put the wiring back together. I can't find the answer of why it would just blink rapidly instead of just turning on. Please help me
