So I got down to Australia, went to use my board, and my remote won’t turn on- completely DOA.
I plugged it into the wall, and the green light immediately came on saying it was fully charged (and I charged it before I left). I left it on the charger though for a couple hours just to make sure.
So from there I thought it may be the switch, so I cut it out and simply put the two wires together… no luck. no lights, just nothing. And it isn’t just the leds because it won’t control the board and the receiver light is flashing signaling a lost connection.
Today, I just fiddled with it again- this time, I turned it on (by again, shorting the wires) and a red light came on. This normally means it is dead or out of charge, which is weird considering the day before. I would have charged it, but had to leave for my internship this morning and didn’t want to leave it plugged in all day.
SO have any of you experienced something similar, or have any suggestions?
-it’s not the switch
-green light while charging
-red light when turned on
I wish I had a multimeter to see if the battery was dead, in which case I could just switch it out assuming the charging function isn’t working…
thanks guys, it really sucks at the moment to have taken shit outa my bag before the trip just to bring my board and stay under the checked bag weight limit, and now that I’m here it doesn’t work
