Hi There....This is a great message for ALL PRECOR 956/966 owners. This failure usually relates to a "communications" error between the upper and lower electronics. This particular failure is a direct result of a failed IFT drive module, or the lower drive "box" that is made by Advanced Drive Technology. The brains of this lower controller has failed and cannot "talk" to the upper board anymore due to several failed parts inside this box. You are lucky to have this failure arise over a fatal blow-out. Now replacements thru Precor or a distributor will be $550+ and are usually low stock items at places, but you can get repairs and exchanges of this Precor IFT drive by emailing gregATbuyfitnessrepairpartsDOTcom for much less than all other vendors. Currently these IFT drives are 380 exchange and 199 repair and turnaround is one day. Good Luck!
\'hard-drive initialisation failed\' = the hard disk has died. Since also the sound is gone that means you had a catastrophic failure in the box. It is still fixable, but it will be very expensive to do it. Time to return it or have it serviced under warranty. If both options are out then just junk it .
"API failed to initialise" (sic) This means that an Application, Interface has not been able to establish a "Connection" with the base Program, it wishes to associate itself with. Some program that is loading on startup, bootup, isn't working properly, it would most likely be best to, either stop it from starting. or reinstall the faulty program, that's failing. It may be nothing major, but the error message is a bother.
Answer on fixyourownprinter.com. Search there to see how to lubricate rod under scanner glass. Common fault. Mine responded instantly starting up fine after rod lubrication which stops scanner initialisation routine and leaves you looking at hourglass.
