My opinion is that the problem is probably a faulty ribbon cable. Proform is infamous for this. I have listed a solution below. The cost is minimal, but it's a real headache. If you are ambitious you might want to save the $300+ that it will cost for a new control panel. Others will recognize that it's just not worth the hassle. My opinion is that the contacts are worn on the ribbon cablePro-Form 540S. - 2.gif that is located behind or near the decline button. People experiencing this problem have also reported that speed control is inoperable, stop button will not work, and start button was not functioning properly. Remove the cable by removing the retaining latch. Then you'll need to carefully apply conductive coating to the worn ribbon cable leads. This is a dual-sided ribbon cable so you'll need to apply this coating to the appropriate side for each contact. Let it dry for 12hours. Carefully trim any excess of conductive coating on the new tracks with an exacto knife so they are nice and straight and adequately seperated. Be very careful not to cut through the ribbon tape. Just use enough pressure to trim the applied coating. When applying the conductive coating use as small an applicator as possible like a pointed q-tip or a tooth pick to keep from spilling onto the adjacent tracks. This is very tedious task.

None of the buttons work other than the #1 and #4 button. All the other buttons don't work. And the only way to shut the machine on and off is to insert and pull out the key.

Pro-Form 540s. Display lights up. Why does nothing work?


Hi There, after looking up this unit, I would say you have a failed lower control board. You can possibly get an exchange for this control board by emailing gregATbuyfitnessrepairpartsDOTcom for more info. These Icon controllers are 99 exchange cost, you get a good one sent, you replace the failed unit and send it back to them as a core return. Good Luck!

Pro-Form Crosswalk 395 - Incline goes up and down with no tread movement. Calibration doesn't work - only on display.


test the main board, with the output voltage from board for input voltage motor. If there are NOT voltage the board is faulty.replace see the block diagram, how the main boad control about 80% of the machine motion.

I have a Pro-Form 400 CT Treadmill, The console light flickers and gets dim. Can I repair this?


Dear Sir:

I will try help you, please use the patience, carefully, and basic tools
1. Power

o 1

Ensure that the treadmill is plugged into a grounded outlet using the correct surge suppressor. Use a UL 1449 suppressor listed as a transient voltage surge suppressor (TVSS). It must be rated for 15 amps and 120 volts AC. Secure the services of an electrician if the outlet is not grounded, or move the Proform treadmill near a grounded outlet. Do not use an extension cord.

o 2

Insert the safety key fully into the display. Treadmills with keys are designed not to turn on without the safety key in place.

o 3

Find the circuit breaker on the front of the frame and make sure it is not tripped. The circuit breaker is a vertical switch on the 540S and a horizontal switch on the 540 Interactive Trainer. Press it to the "Reset" position, which will be labeled.
2. Reed Switch

o 1

Unplug the treadmill and remove the safety key.

o 2

Move the upright base of the treadmill down with the help of another person and lift the uprights so that you can get to the underside of the console. Use a Phillips screwdriver with at least a 5-inch shaft to remove the screws. There are five hood screws on the 540 Interactive trainer and four screws on the 540S.

o 3

Remove the motor hood to get to the small reed switch by pivoting the hood off the frame. Find the reed switch and magnet, which are on the left side of the pulley for both models.

o 4

Turn the pulley with your hand until the reed switch aligns with the magnet. There should be 1/8-inch gap between the two. Fix the distance so that it is 1/8 inch by loosening the reed switch screw and sliding it to the correct distance. Tighten the screw.

o 5

Reverse the directions to put the hood back on and the treadmill upright in the original position.

With this you will fix. See the Videos:

I installed a new cyan cart but found air got into the pipe between the cart and printhead - how do I clean that out


Run the printer nozzle clean function available form the Printer Toolbox software or try pressing and holding down the Power button for 3 to 10 seconds. Be sure to have about 10 pages of paper in the printer. Do not run this too frequently as it uses a lot of ink.

It begins to print then stops half way


Having the same problem here... very random... send a print job of labels and it will print the whole lot, or freeze at random points but always halfway through a label... no error message... unplug usb and replug doesnt do anything, but unplug and replug power and off it goes printing more lables but may even freeze again after only a few more have come out... also, every day the first print job of the day prints half the label and pauses for about 10 seconds then keeps going...

I have a tomtom xxl 540s and it just loads tomtom logo on screen and freezes


First you need to reset the tom tom by holding down the power button for about 10 seconds, it will restart itself, from there it should get passed the tom tom logo.
If it does not do the job, then you need to connect your gps to a computer, then back up the files then you restore the files back on it after formating the gps.

Update download for tom tom xxl 540s is too big for unit, lost all maps


Theres good news for you, you can get a SD card for your tomtom, and all you have to do is to install or download your maps on the SD card then fix it into your tomtom and you will be able to view your maps from there. For the lost maps, connect your tomtom to your computer, be sure to have your drivers software, then you select your tomtom form your computer, then you install all lost maps back on it by restoring all old maps. But for large downloads, download all new maps on a SD card. That should do the job.
Hope this information came in handy.

How do i know my xxl 540s battery charge full?


To know if your tomtom is fully charged. Unplug the tomtom from the power source and you will see the battery meter, if it is full or not, because while it is charging, it is the power source that is working so the battery signal will not come up. Unplug it and you will see the battery meter.
Hope this was able to solve the problem.
