Hoverboard Motherboard Models for Sale
There are many different models of motherboards, and believe it or not the same brand may use a different model of motherboard between their hoverboards. This can be quite confusing!
Usually in Stock
These are motherboards that are usually in stock. You can place an order with us on the website for any these models and receive them fairly quickly:
- TaoTao (Green)
- NJ Yuanlang (Green)
- Generic (Blue)
TaoTao is the oldest and most common hoverboard motherboard replacement brand on the market. Not only do they manufacture motherboards for hoverboards, but TaoTao has also supplied the USA with 49cc scooters for many years as well.
TaoTao uses a wide clip at the end, and is not compatible with narrow sockets or other brands of PCB boards including indicator lights, LED lights, and gyroscopes of other brands. If your hoverboard uses TaoTao circuits, then you MUST replace the broken parts with TaoTao. The only other option is to do a full replacement by purchasing one of our TaoTao PCB bundles.
NJ Yuanlang Motherboard
NJ Yuanlang is PCB (circuit board) manufacturer that is based in the city of Nanjing, China. We've had great luck with this company and the reliability of their motherboards is comparable to that of TaoTao.
The main difference between TaoTao and NJ Yuanlang is the profile of the white clips at the end. NJ uses a narrow clip with two small sliders on the end clip. Unlike TaoTao, NJ Yuanlang is generally capable of replacing other parts without causing problems to the voltage and function of the hoverboard.
JKL is a fairly popular motherboard model in the 2016 model FutureSaw hoverboard and GD Smith hoverboard. Its a versatile motherboard that we've found can easily be replaced with an NJ Yuanlang motherboard in most cases.
The one major thing that you're going to want to look for on this motherboard is whether you have a welded motherboard speaker or a wired motherboard speaker. If you're not sure what that is, look at the longest flat side of the motherboard and you will see a black cylinder that is about 3/4 inch tall and the size of a dime. This is the motherboard speaker and is what makes the sound when you turn your hoverboard on and also make the sound when you step on the hoverboard's foot pads.
Some model numbers we've found printed on JKL motherboards include:
- JKL-PHC02-A-V02 (Green)
Generic Blue Motherboard
There are a lot of blue hoverboard motherboards out there, and most are made by various companies whose names are either not printed onto the motherboards, or they are written in Chinese and we Americans are unable to type or translate them. Some model numbers we've found written on these include:
- LXZN143A V1.0 (Blue)
- 0312V3 (Blue)
One of the more common blue motherboards for self balancing scooters is a brand named GOYOO. A typical model number for these motherboards is:
- GYNN0001A-V01 (Blue)
Rare Motherboards (Ask us if These are in Stock Before Buying)
These motherboards are more rare, and we sometimes have them in stock. If this page allows you to purchase one then its probably in stock, but we suggest calling us and asking about them before ordering, just in case.
- Vicont STPY-ZB V1.1 (Green)
- PLS-YT-V2.0 (Green)
- ZCY-NE-Z 20150826 (Green)
The Difference Between Motherboard Colors
If you're seeking a particular type of motherboard, we might just have it! We stock several different models in a variety of colors as well. Check with us if you're seeking any of the following:
- Green Motherboard (Most common - Quality ranges widely)
- Blue Motherboard (Usually good quality)
- Red Motherboard (rare, typically lowest quality)
- Yellow Motherboard (extremely rare, likely low quality)

Identifying Bluetooth Compatibility
When the motherboard is broken on your hoverboard, you're going to run into some issues if you had Bluetooth as well. Usually the Bluetooth will stop working on a hoverboard when the motherboard goes out, so to get things back to working order you'll have to buy a Bluetooth compatible motherboard and a hoverboard Bluetooth module / chip.
Identifying a Bluetooth compatible motherboard is simple. When looking at the motherboard you are going to look for two thin wires, one will be red and the other will be black. Both of these wires will usually be soldered to the motherboard. The red one will be soldered toward the center, and the black one will be soldered somewhere on the outside (its just a ground so it can really be soldered just about anywhere).
How to Add Bluetooth to Any Motherboard
If you're feeling courageous and know how to solder well, then you might even be able to handle adding Bluetooth to any motherboard! You'll need a red and black wire that goes to your speaker (you can even rip this off of your old motherboard), and then can solder these wires into a new non-Bluetooth motherboard.
Note: Be very careful if you're doing this, and make sure that your motherboard is completely unplugged from any power whatsoever!
The red wire should plug into R53 on the motherboard and the black wire can be soldered to any ground. I suggest the outside of the motherboard as the best spot. You can watch this quick video about how to add Bluetooth to any hoverboard.
What do the Numbers on a Hoverboard's Motherboard Mean?
There are usually a set of numbers that can be found on the motherboard near the outside. These numbers are usually either a product model number or the date that the motherboard was created.
If you see numbers that start with letters, such as ZCY-NE-Z, then that is the brand and model of the board. On the other hand, if you see a set of numbers that appears to start with 201, then this is usually just a manufacturing date. An example of this would be 20150826, which translates to August 26th, 2015.
Hoverboard Motherboard Replacement Tips
Replacing a hoverboard motherboard can be a daunting task. Not surprisingly, first timers will make many mistakes when they replace the logic board on a self balancing scooter. Take the following into considering when replacing a hoverboard mainboard.
Common Replacement Mistakes
- Crossing wrong wires.
- Inserting adapters into incorrect sockets.
- Unscrewing all of the small screws around the motherboard.
- Leaving the hoverboard battery plugged in (dangerous).
Hoverboard Motherboard Error Codes
The motherboard for hoverboards has a tiny red light that blinks integrated inside of it. The purpose of this light is to act as an error indicator for any problems that the hoverboard may encounter.
The following is a brief guide to the error codes of a motherboard:
- 1 Blink - Loose connection. Unplug everything and plug back in. If that doesn't work, replace motherboard.
- 2 Blinks - We commonly repair this problem by replacing the motherboard.
- 3 Blinks - Replace the motherboard.
- 4 Blinks - Although this may seem like a motherboard problem, we repaired this with replacement hoverboard motors.
- 5 Blinks - Front LED Lights Not Hooked Up / Loose Connection
- 6 Blinks - Hoverboard battery has gone bad and needs to be replaced.
- 7 Blinks - Battery side gyroscope needs to be replaced.
- 8 Blinks - Motherboard side gyroscope needs to be replaced.
- 9 Blinks - Not an indicator of a problem - Hoverboard was powered on while upside down, likely during repair.
