Default i180 Red light on startup

Hi there, Newbie here.

I bought a segway on ebay. I know, I'm sure i'm not the 1st to get mugged.

It is a i180 with nicad batteries. Anyway, after charging it overnight i get a red light on the screen with a spanner icon.

can anyone advise if there is hope, or is it a lost cause.

Thanks

Pini

Hi

Much info is already covered.
But as a newbie, here's the overview.

Most i180s came with Li-ion ( extended range ) batteries.
Just a few were sold with the ( standard range ) NiMH batteries.

In either case these will be 10+ years old, and likely at end of life.

If you can locate another owner, or dealer nearby, try to temporarily fit their known good batteries to your i180.
If faults persist ( which is likely ) then your machine is history, sorry.
If faults vanish, then all you need is a fresh set of batteries.

Sadly, Segway discontinued all support for Gen 1 machines.
So what may have been an easy fix is no longer the case.

Good Luck
