Lightbulb PT (i2/x2) Error Codes & Meanings

Sorry if you thought you were going to get all the error code meanings on this thread - I don't have them. But between us all, we should be able to compile a list. So, please post any error codes you get from your PT and the associated meanings (if you know or as they become available). One thread to bring it all together might be helpful.

Was no list circulated at the fest?

There is no timeline set yet but it IS being worked on.
Guess I'll just post a link here when it goes live. Until then, any info we find could still go here.

Default Error code E012

I discovered this error code when playing with the second infokey I received. If you start the Segway with one infokey, and shut it down with the second infokey, the first infokey shows this error code: E012

Default C040

Error code C040:

As far as I can tell, this error code is displayed when the wheels loose traction while in rider balance mode. After about 5 seconds of displaying the error message, the segway powers down completely.


I've gotten this twice so far:

Once after getting off to lead it up a curb. It takes a second or two for the seg to drop back to riderless balance mode after getting off, especially if the mats are cold; I suspect they don't 'pop back up' as quick. It was still in full rider balance mode when I leaned it forward for it to go up the curb. With the snow, the wheels didn't have enough traction to climb the curb and started spinning. Because it was still in 'rider' mode, it applies power way quicker than when 'riderless'. It spun the wheels for a second or so, and shuts down with C040.

The second time, also related to snow: Going up a snow covered grass hill slowly. Wheels lost traction (with me on it), forcing me to step forward to avoid falling. Wheels continued to spin for a second until C040 and power down.

Default C108

C108: Batteries too cold?

I got C108 nearing the end of my trip. I was down to 1 bar at -6c (21F). I was getting flat face on level ground at about 15km/h. I went up a slight hill, and only got about 8km/h. Zigzagging through some metal barriers (desinged to keep cars out?) at the end of the pathway hill, I was getting stick shake, ie 'your demading too much power'. A few seconds later, I got a safety shutdown that wasn't low battery related, as I still had one bar. I'm assuming the batteries couldn't hold enough voltage to maintain the headroom the segway wanted.

I started it back up and came back carefully.

C-108 came up when
Removing cord after charging and going down hill 1/4 mile,
Of course the speed limiter was kicked in to keep me about 5 mph
after turning around at the bottom to start back up , emergency shutdown with the code C-108
Unit fired back up and no problem
