I've not had this happen to me before, or seen it happen to someone else. Further, you're right, there doesn't seem to be anything in the literature about it - almost all the "error" messages deal with lights flashing, not staying on solid. I'd recommend the following: first, carefully double-check all the wiring: motor wires in the correct order, sensor wires in the correct order and all plugged in fully, wire to the receiver in and in the correct order, etc. Sounds simple, I know, but I can't count how many times I've caught myself with the wires in the wrong order, or backwards, or whatever. Once all that is correct, re-do the one-touch set-up, which also resets the speedo to factory settings (profile 1). See if that helps anything. Other than that I would recommend giving Novak customer service a call.
For future reference, providing a little more background would be good when asking for help. What kind of motor(s) have you tried it with? What kind of battery? Good luck, hope this works out for you.
