Precor Error 50, Too Much Brake (Magnet) Current Probable Cause 1. Shorted or damaged wiring between the lower PCA and the eddy current magnet is the most common cause for this error.
2. Bad eddy current magnet.
3. Bad lower PCA.
Corrective Action

  1. Thoroughly inspect the eddy current wiring and connections ensuring that the wires are not shorted to the frame or shorted together. Repair or replace damaged wiring as necessary.
  2. Disconnect the wires from the eddy current magnet. Using an ohm meter, check for approximately 100 ohms across the eddy current magnet terminals. If the reading is considerably low, replace the eddy current magnet. Measure ohms between each eddy current magnet terminal and the frame ground. You should have no resistance between the eddy current magnet terminal and the frame ground. If resistance is present this would indicate a partial short, replace the eddy current magnet.
  3. If the eddy current magnet wiring and the eddy current magnet are both good from the above tests, replace the lower PCA.

SOURCE: I get an error message on my Precor EFX5.17

Error 54 - Target Pulses Lost During Operation... Description... This error is associated with the 5.17 EFX. This error indicates that at some time after the initial start up sequence was successfully completed, the gear motor was instructed to move and no response was seen from the motors revolution sensor. Possible Causes (1.) The F2 fuse is blown.... (2.) Damaged or Intermittent gear motor wiring.... (3.) Bad gear motor.... (4.) Damaged gear motor target... (5.) Bad lower PCA.... Possible Remedies.... (1.) Remove power from the 5.17. Remove the F2 fuse from the lower PCA. Measure the fuse with an ohmmeter. The fuse should measure 1 ohm or less. If the reading is significantly high, replace the fuse. If the F2 fuse was blown there may have been a reason that will cause the fuse to blow again such as; damaged gear motor wiring or a bad gear motor..... (2.) Carefully inspect the gear motor wiring for intermittent or damaged wiring or connections. Replace or repair the wiring or connections as appropriate..... (3.) With power removed from the 5.17, remove both wires from the gear motor. Measure the gear motor resistance with an ohmmeter, it should read approximately 9 ohms. If the reading is significantly low or significantly high, replace the gear motor..... (4.) Visually inspect the gear motor target, if it is ripped, torn or badly scratched, replace the target..... (5.) Measure the voltage at the gear motor during the start up sequence, it should measure approximately 12 V.D.C. The voltage would only be present between the time the sequence was initiated and an error was displayed.. If the voltage is significantly low or absent and the F2 fuse is good (see step 1), replace the lower PCA......
Hope this has helped you.... Thanks...

Reset my devise

Do a hard teset by removing battery for ten minutes. Not sure why you are getting error messages every time, if it is the same error message it could be a fault in the machine or it could be that you are doing something wrong when you use the machine. Make sure you read and keep all the instructions that come with the machine. Hope this helps.

I have an Eliptical Trainer BY-430E. I keep getting Error 1 every time I turn it on to use it. Does anybody know how this can be repaired. Thanks in advance

Error 1 on a schwinn is a generic electrical error. Check your ac adapter and make sure you're getting the proper voltage off of it. Typically an error 1 warrants a replacement of either the ac adapter, the wire harness (wires that connect the power to the console) or the console itself. If the console has batteries, change those first, then check your adapter. If the problem persists, you're looking at a more in depth problem that will require taking the casing off the machine and individually testing each component of the machine. It's usually worth at that point to pay a tech to look at the machine for you.

Message unable to print 50

Machine Error 50 either means that there is a loose object inside the machine (usually piece of paper), or that there is a mechanical error which would need you to have the machine sent to service.

"Unable To Change" message. Tried all suggested fixes none work. Can you provide any additional help beyond the standard fixes. Nothing is jammed, turning it off for even days doesn't remove the error...

press menu then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow up. what error code does the machine display?

In case you have an error 50 you have to open the printer cover and to reinsert the encoder strip which is out of position into the ph. This occurs sometimes after a serious paper jam.

search error 50 for dcp 110, 115 or mfc 210 here. its the same procedure.
