SOURCE: I have had teh MPH

MAKE SURE THE MAGNET PASSES THE SENSOR AS CLOSE AS YOU CAN GET. SAY 3 TO 4 MM.

Did you throw the magnet on the crankarm? If not check the alignment of the transmitter and the magnet - sometimes they need to be quite close. Sometimes they just fail. I have seen instances where cadence worked and speed didn't and vice versa - so the unit is transmitting perfectly, but one of the sensors has gone bad.

SOURCE: Sigma BC 1609 Cadence Bicycle Speedometer reads my movement much slower than I am actually going. E.g. moving about 15, reads as 5 mph.

I had the same problem. It is caused because the mount is facing the wrong direction and your computer is swapping speed and cadence. 5 mph would mean 63 RPM of the wheel which probably what your pedal is actually doing. The wheel is actually turning at about 3 times that rate so if you check your cadence it is probably maxing out at 180 even though that wouldn't be possible.

To fix this, just twist your mount 180 degrees on your handlebars or stem and try again. That way the computer is correctly lined up with the mount.

How do you connect logitech a-0006 via bluetooth ? lost usb reciever/transmitter.


If you do not have the Bluetooth dongle (plugs into a USB port) you should contact Logitech for a replacement. Alternatively you can also look for one second hand via craigslist, ebay, etc.etc.

Unit is measuring cadence and heart rate, but is not measuring speed, distance or ride time.


Check to make sure your speed/ distance sensor is in alignment with your wheel magnet. If it is then check the battery in the sensor.

Speed and distance are on a different sensor than the cadence.

The meter that you set that tells you your speed, distance and calories burned stays at 0:0...the mode moves around when you push that but it stays registered at 0 for all modes. I put new batteries in it...


hi,
check ur tread mill's control consoles press button switches first. if all good the other chance is, ur control console have a programmed ic (integated circuit) in it. some programs are loaded in that ic, with which its displays speed distance traveled and all other settings. may be posibiliy for the ic get faulty. if so, the any way is consult the manufacturer, because you will not get the same in open market.
ok

I have no speed or trip distance showing, cadence is normally ok. also my watch strap has broken and because it is glued on i cant get it fixed!


Since your Cadence is working then there is a problem with the actual speed/ distance sensor. First make sure that in your settings you have speed turned on. If so then...
1) Your battery may be dead = Replace CS sensor
2) The distance of the sensor and magnet is not set correctly = make sure magnet on spokes and sensor are within 1-2mm of each other.

Polar can fix the strap, you need to send into an authorized service center. They replace the entire strap unit. If you send into Polar to get the strap fixed, then you can send in the sensor unit as well for diagnosis if you want. But if #2 doesn't fix, then it's #1 and they will just tell you to buy a new one anyway.

On my console, all the readouts for the speed,distance...turn on but they come up as all zeros. I put new batteries in but I still get no readouts. Help.


Has anyone had the treadmill apart? Most of the readouts are really very simple. Simply a sensor wire that runs down to the pulley with a sensor at the end. It counts the revolutions of the drive pulley and gives calculated readouts for speed, est calories, distance etc. all the same function really
Check the wire for breaks, check the sensor for positioning and dirt, check the magnet on the drive pulley that tells the sensor pulley position

Baby monoitor reciever piking up no sound or delayed sound - link light flashing


A delay may be caused by interference from other radio sources. I heard of one case where a woman's cell phone call overpowered the transmit power of her baby monitor.

Other things that can cause interference or other receiver problems:
1. monitor in contact or close proximity to running appliances or their cords. (induced electromagnetic field)
2. neighbor with baby monitor on same channel ('cross-talk')
3. distance between transmitter and receiver too far (the strength of a radio signal fall dramatically over larger distances. think of how often you lose cell phone coverage)
4. reduced power: low battery strength or cooked power supply
5. transmitter or receiver insulated from signal (if your monitor was transmitting/receiving through any metal obstruction)

Transmission distance problem on Sennheiser G2 wireless


I regularly use G2 ew100+300 systems, which have a manual squelch adjustment on the reciever. Squelch is difficult to explain but here we go: a squelch adjustment gives you the options LOW, MEDIUM, HIGH these settings effect transmission distance and interference rejection. for example: a HIGH squelch is less prone to interference but has a shorter transmittion distance. A LOW squelch is more prone to interferance but allows for a longer transmission distance. For most applications, a MID squelch is fine. If this does not help- the next option would be to swap arials between units and see if the problem moves. The G2 series are a 30mw transmittion which has an effective range of about 50m
hope this helps.
