Question about Exercise & Fitness

1 Answer

When I took this 20-year-old treadmill out of long-term storage, the three monochrome reflective LCD display panels had darkened so much they are unreadable (I can read part of one). It works fine, just can't read the displays. Is there any way to repair these old panels?

Adjust the REED swithc and clean it, Test for open or faulty, tight the connector very well. see the diagram attached.
2) replace old battery with the new ones with the mark, alkalines
3) clean the ribbon cables from the keypads inside the display board. see the block diagram. if the problem persist, the problem is display board defective.

SOURCE: Life Fitness T3 treadmill won't turn on. Power

Could be. If you had to take it apart, I would definately check the wire harness connection. Also if there are bolts that were removed, check to make sure none of those pinched the harness when reassembling.

SOURCE: Treadmill (Vision Fitness T8500) turns on, motor doesn't run...

open motor shroud and inspect all connection on the motor control board see if all LED 's are lit except that light up when incline motor is moving up or down. then check the two connector coming from the drive motor to the board sometime over time the two connector will have a cold soldier I would move them to see any excessive movements of the pins then hit start and see if there is any belt movement. Last but not least unplug unit and check the motor brushes if they are less than 3/8 in in length replace them. Call them @ 1-800-335-4348 they under their parent corp. Johnson fitness.

SOURCE: Message in the display "err 2" and my kettler treadmill doesn't work

Hi Rendra,

Try this:
Switch the treadmill off and then on again.
Push the "minus" speed button and the "stop" button simultanuously.

If all is well you will now have entered the maintenance mode.

Next push the "plus" speed button and the "stop"button smultanuously.
Now you you've reached the error mode.

Push the "plus" or "minus" speed button to browse the error codes untill you've reached "L er".
The push start to erase the message.

Turn the power off and then on again to restart the treadmill.

With any luck the error has disappeared and the treadmill will function again. If not.....you'll have to contact Kettler.

Btw...This error occurs when the belt is "pushed" by the runner. For example when you put weight on the handlebar and the push your feet backwards.

SOURCE: proform treadmill zt 5 runs but display is dead

If what you say is that all functions are working (start, speed up , down and incline up,down) then the upper console lighting may have loose wire harness( check first) bad soldier connection or the components that generate the images on the LCD are defective. If you have good connections on the wire harness then you may need to replace the upper console.

The term immobilize is on the display panel and I want to start it up. How do I get it going again?


When necessary to immobilize the treadmill, set display to read SELECT A WORKOUT. (Press the STOP Key
twice if not already there). Then hold down the SPEED DOWN Key and press the STOP Key. The treadmill
now displays IMMOBILIZED. In this state, the treadmill cannot be operated. The main motor and incline are
disabled. The treadmill will remain in this state across resets, power cycles, etc. To restore normal operation,
repeat the same key sequence: hold down the SPEED DOWN Key and press the STOP Key. The treadmill will
display SELECT A WORKOUT again.

Proform Treadmill 785 E suddenly stops during highs speed workout


Use 2000W converter instead of 750W because you are using your treadmill on its full power on high speed. 750W converter is not capable of handling its full load resulting the machine malfunctioning. Your treadmill 785E have 2.25 CHP motor, 2.25 CHP is equal to 1677.824712W and 20-Amp minimum Ac outlet is required for your treadmill in order to function in full capacity.

No colour in bottom right corner


I believ you have an issue with the optical block on your set. Light produced by a high-intensity projection lamp enters the optical block and is split into three paths (one each for red, green, and blue) by a series of lenses, condensers, mirrors, filters, and/or beam splitters. Each color has an LCD assembly with polarizing filters and a liquid crystal microdisplay panel (approximately 1" across). On Sony's "3LCD" models, the light is transmitted through each LCD panel, and, on their "SXRD" (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) models, the light is reflected off each SXRD panel. Finally, the three separately colored images are combined with a special prism into the final full-color image, which is then projected/enlarged onto the back of the screen by a projection lens.
The following annotated photo shows various parts on the optical block of a 2004 3LCD model KDF-55WF655 (note that the LCD panel cover has been removed):

Either the block is starting to wear out or you have something blocking the lens, such a dirt or something has fallen and is blocking the lens

I have a 3 year old lcd color 15" flat screen digital dolby mod. # lc200sl8 A the picture comes on but the whole picture is white you can see some color but very light I have tryed to darken it but won't...


I don't know if your set has a separate power supply but this sounds like the failure of a low-voltage circuit supplying power to the section which modulates the individual pixels on your display.
Sylvania is one of several names owned by Funai which is the worst of all Asian manufacturers.

Reebok Vista Treadmill issue


Have a 2 year old Reebok treadmill. Control panel was replaced right after we bought it. Now, again, the upper half of the panel works but we are not allowed to start anything. Does the whole panel need to be replaced again or is there a fuse or something small that we can do.
