I get a squeak in what appears to come from the bearing when I pull on the rowing machine handle. There is no squeak while the chain is retracting. How do I get into the bearing shaft to oil/grease the bearing?

Have you checked to make sure there is no corrosion or dirt on the battery terminals/contacts resulting in reduced voltage flow? If dirty try using a dollar bill(the fibrous paper used to make money is slightly course) to clean them as even a fine grit sand paper is too course for these contact points( you just want clean them, not scratch the finish off)
Your chain is stuck on the bearing and not on the gear. Its stuck on the rod holding the gear. See the thing that looks like a bicycle chain that leleads from the pull handle to the black cover next to the fan? Well under that black cover is a gear that holds the bicycle chain. To get to it, you need a screwdriver. Take off the cover and you need to pull the bar vertical to the air and you need to realign the chain. Your welcome! Source: same problem
Check the mtion sensing magnetic switch thats under the seat rail. It determines if you are rowing and sends a signal to the computer. Make sure all connections are fully seated. You may have loosened a wire when you swapped the batteries.
Hold down the 4 bottom buttons(recall,2 set digits,ready).While holding them down,press and release the ON/OFF button. Now release the other 4 buttons....the monitor should do some fast counting for 15 seconds and then display a 5 in the center area.Now press and release the ON/OFF button again and your screen should work!
mine did this as well--turn the shock 180 degrees so the sticker is down and the caution sticker--this fixed mine. The shock is probably slightly off from the factory and is in a bind the other way. Hope this fixes the problem for others.
You didn't say what model you have, but I believe they are all functionally similar to my Model B rower. There is a "skewer" assembly inside the seat rail with a shock cord and pulley's that keeps tension in the chain throughout its range of travel. To some extent it is adjustable by taking slack out of the shock cord. On mine, this can be done by grabbing the shock cord adjustment mechanism ("SCAM") with pliers and pulling it out of the rear of the machine and adjusting the slack. If it is very loose or you just want to be sure of what is going on, the entire skewer assembly pulls out from the front (flywheel side) of the seat rail after removing four screws that hold it in place. Go to the concept2 website for diagrams, instructions, and parts lists for your model.
