Smart Cycle- Snowy picture and slow motion Audio

I bought a smart cycle for my son. The unit worked for a few days but then it just quit working right. The picture was obscured with horizontal snow (mostly black with a little white) and the sound was liek it was in slow motion. I've nerver heard a electronics do that. Maybe a record player or cassette tape. Considering the lack of moving parts it was odd. Anyway I called the 800 number and they advised to change the batteries and if that didnt work to call back. The next day I called back and was advised that I could send the green cord back and get a brand new unit. The only thing was that I would have to wait 2-4 weeks. I decided to just take it back to Walmart and get my money back and be over it. I am very happy not having to deal with this issue anymore. But I still think it's a great concept that Wii is close to.

Here is a version for adults:
Cateye Interactive Game Bike: This is what you get when you turn a standard stationary exercise bicycle into a game controller. The $400 Game Bike hooks up to a PlayStation 2 and allows you to use the pedals and handlebars to control any racing game available for that console. You can even hook up more than one Game Bike to your PS2 and race head-to-head with another player. The faster you pedal, the faster your virtual vehicle goes. Now that's one slick way to kill two birds--getting your Project Gotham fix and finding time for a workout--with one stone.

That sounds awsome,but sometimes if you face some of the company's crapy work,your just going to have to wait those 2-4 weeks.

p.s sometimes the company workers can be morons. if your going to blame anyone blame them.

The smart drive 708 on any wash cycles has poor water the water seems to be filling up very slowly and the normal wash cycle takes 2hrs

Hi Challe340, Sounds like your machines Inlet solinoid valve that supplys water to your machine may have a clogged internal diaphagm, its quite normal for it to clogg up due to high sediment build up in the water mains over the years and seeing that the machine is a smart drive 708 it probly hasnt had inlet replacement in it entire life. As for the normal wash cycle taking so long could be due to restriction in water flow from the faulty inlet valve slowing down the water fill segments in its rinsing cycle stage, hope this help.

Pluged in smart cycle in t.v. and smart cycle will not come on please help

I had a similar issue. My Smart Cycle worked for a while, then it progressively became more and more temperamental, failing at unusual times, not turning on consistently, then finally quit powering on entirely. Turns out there was dirt & grime (maybe a little corrosion) on the game cartridge and plug. The solution -- clean with Windex and q-tips.

Here's the post that led me to that conclusion:

And more on cleaning the cartridges and console plugs in general:

Smart Cycle Program "freezes" while in play. Unit must be turned off and turned back on to restart. The batteries are new.

check out whether it is full version or not.
if it is full version check whether you have registered it properly or not.
make sure the requirements needed for game are with your it compatible or not.
againreinstall,then also if it not comes specify your problem in more clarified way

Smart Cycle - Fisher Price

If your games are freezing up, or you are getting a garbled screen, or a split screen (solid color block on one side, black on the other)......spray some windex on the circuit board of the game cartridge and clean with q-tips. I know it sounds crazy; but I took the smart cycle apart this weekend trying to diagnose the problem. Ours kept having the above problems, and it seemed to me like a bad connection between the game cartridge and the "slot". Nothing worked until I finally tried the windex as a last ditch effort. WORKED LIKE A CHARM. Tried a game, didn't worked, cleaned with windex, works now no problem. This worked for all six of my game cartridges, when none of them would work before.
