EGO2 Bricked - Is it worth throwing parts at?

Hello everyone…Believe it or not, I am on my 3rd EGO2, the first got stuck in a plane in Germany. The second seemed to brick itself and wouldn’t charge and the third which I bought used on Ebay (since they are out of production) has stopped working due to what looks like a battery failure. The charger seems to be charging the battery as the charge indicator light on the charger turns green. But when I power up the and pair the controller, I get only one red blink and a vibration, which means battery is dead. Still works but very slow. So I brought the board to a local electronic repair shop here in Orange County, CA. however he is not a eskateboard specialist, he proceeded to charge and test the battery stating that the battery was still good. So I am not sure what I should do with this board, if its a paperweight or maybe I can part it out and make something out of it which brings me here…any input would help in regards to getting back on the road. Thanks.

Hey PetesESK8, welcome to the ESK8 forum. Bummer about the board. Can you upload some pics?

Kinda sounds like a dead esc or maybe a setup issue, but I’m no expert. I’m new to e-skateboards myself.
