Reasons Why Electric Scooter Displays Don't Work

The display of an electric scooter is a functional complement to a traditional electric scooter and can help us to confirm that the electric scooter is operating properly. If the display of an electric scooter does not light up, we need to confirm the reason.

The following are the reasons why electric scooter displays don't work.

  • Empty battery

Since the battery is what provides the electric energy for the whole electric scooter, you can look at the battery when our electric scooter display does not work. If the battery is low or dead, the display will not light up when the bike is turned on.

  • Loose connection

The most common scenario when the display of an electric scooter does not work is that the display will lose power due to a loose connection wire. Usually the display will have multiple wires connected to the circuit. Once one or more of these are disconnected or loose, the display will stop operating.

  • Broken Teeth/Pins

Connectors connect the electric scooter display to the battery and controller. If a single tooth of this connector breaks, the display will not work. Additionally, a broken leg in the battery system prevents current from reaching the computer. Therefore, the display can stop working.

  • Controller failure

The controller is one of the most important components of your electric scooter. You can turn the bike on/off, accelerate or brake. If the controller is not working properly, the display will flash or not work properly.

  • Switch failure

A power button is installed on the throttle to turn the electric scooter on. The display also has function buttons for on/off or for setting/resetting itself. If at least one of these buttons is damaged, the display will not turn on.

  • Defective screen

In rare cases, the problem is inside the electric scooter display. It could be a damaged IC or a damaged screen.

  • Confirm the power level

If your electric scooter battery does not have a battery level indicator, use a voltmeter to determine the level. If the charge level is below 40%, charge the battery and try to turn the display on again.

  • Restart the electric scooter

When the screen of the electric scooter is not responding, besides confirming whether the power is sufficient, we can determine whether the screen is disconnected by restarting the electric scooter. If the screen of the electric scooter works properly after restarting, then we can continue to ride normally. If the screen still does not work properly after restarting, then we need to determine the cause by other operations.
