No Power on New Level

I'm now thinking the battery is bad. There is a switch on the top of the battery - when I press it a green light comes on, but it does not stay on. Does anyone with a level know if the green light should stay on after pressing the button?
My battery is fine and does the same thing.

I have just got my Aventon Level delivered and had the same problem.

Besides the display flashing in 1 sec, it was also inconsistent. Did not turn on sometimes at all. First I thought that the battery was dead/empty or malfunctioning. But when I plugged in the adapter, the light was always green. After leaving the battery on charge overnight (thinking that maybe the battery balance is not there, thus the green light) and experiencing the same thing, with no replies from Aventon I was about to lose it.

Then I read @Amptech's post here and decided to try it. I made a tiny hinge from a paperclip, wrapped the handle with tape, and pulled the metal contacts in the battery to bend them to a slight angle so that they could touch the male connectors on the bike.

And it worked! The battery was indeed fully charged. And I also noticed that the battery sat firmer than before ~ I can't say that I love the battery actually being supported by these thin metal connectors. This might happen again. So my theory here is that the bike should have had too much horizontal force and the connectors in the battery were bent to the walls by the male connectors that are on the bike.

Sharing because I felt your pain. Think twice before trying :)

Cheers
Same problem, different solution. I just slightly, slightly, slightly bent the four connectors in the battery case bottom. A quick five minute fix with no messing with the battery. It's just like adjusting prongs on an electrical cord that won't fit into a socket. Working fine after 200 miles.

So I had the same problem with my Level not turning on and flickering on when you plug it in. Ended up being a bad battery. Took it back to the Bike shop I bought it from they gave me a new battery and I was off and running

My father has a new Aventon Aventure. Someone told him to push the led 2 times. He did this and it stayed on each time. Then he is able to power the display. Hope its something this simple.
some of the batteries don't have that button or led's

Found Fix,,,, if your battery indicated 44vdc and both charger and battery indicate green light they are charged,,,,, the charger will not go red because the battery is charged 48vdc battery not 56 vdc like RAD found issue with contact fingers at base of the insert, take paper clip and pull the spring contacts in battery closer together to make better contact when inserted, did this and boy power controller lite up and show a full charge and was off to the races....... Hope this helps others pass the word please
Just got my bike, display didn't turn on. Tried your fix, used a paper clip to pull the spring contacts on the battery closer together so they grip the prong in the case better. My display now powers up when I hold the M button on the handle bars. Much thanks!!!
