Life Fitness X3 does not turn on. So I can't set resistance nor intervals with console. Plug was checked and is fine.


follow this steps and fix it.
God bless you

  • Check power problems if the console on the elliptical machine does not light up. Make sure that the plug for the machine is secure in the outlet. If it is plugged in, ensure that the outlet is receiving power. Check the breaker to make sure it has not tripped off.
    Be sure that you are using the correct adapter that came with the elliptical machine. Because different adapters are able to handle differing amounts of energy, the wrong adapter will not transfer electricity like it should. If the adapter is pinched or damaged, this could also alter its effectiveness.

    Make sure the correct adapter is being used if the resistance settings seem to be too hard or too easy. If the correct adapter is being used, reset the machine. To reset the machine, either switch the "On/Off" button or unplug the machine from the wall. Doing this will allow the device to reset itself to the default resistance. Turn on or plug the device back into the wall and retry all of the levels of resistance.

  • Check any accessories attached directly to the console to make sure that it is licensed and undamaged. Unlicensed or damaged accessories shouldn't be used with the console.
  • Try using a different wall outlet, or plug a different device into the outlet to make sure the outlet is providing power.
Perform an AC Adapter Reset. To perform an AC Adapter Reset follow these instructions: Unplug the Wii AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the Wii system and from the wall outlet or power strip).
  1. The AC adapter must remain unplugged at both ends for a full two minutes.
  2. Unplug anything connected to the USB ports and the Nintendo GameCube Controller ports (such as LAN Adapters, keyboards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, etc.).
  3. Check the AC Adapter for the following:
    • Make sure that the word "Wii" and the model number "RVL-002 (USA)" are molded into the AC adapter. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible and may not work correctly.
    • Check the AC Adapter for physical damage. Physical damage, such as frayed wiring or a cracked housing can cause the system to shut down. If the AC Adapter shows signs of physical damage and needs to be replaced, a replacement can be purchased from Nintendo's online store.
  4. After waiting two minutes, plug the AC adapter into the Wii system and directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or power strip. If the power light comes on and stays on, then the AC Adapter reset was successful.

If these suggestions don't work try visiting Nintendo's help pages at: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ts_system.jsp

TO BE SAFE...I WOULD PURCHASE THE CORRECT PLUG WITH THE TWO PRONGS THAT FITS YOUR OUTLET!

IF YOU HAVE THE CORRECT PLUG... YOU CAN USE THIS ONE...BUT YOU WOULD HAVE TO BREAK OFF THE GROUND PRONG BY BENDING AND WIGGLING IT, IT IS THE THIRD PRONG SEPERATE ON THE BOTTOM! IT SHOULD LOOK STRAIGHT & ROUND!

HOPE THIS HELPS...WOULD APPRECIATE A RATING...THANKS!

I have a Frigidaire FAFS4473LW Steam Washer- 3 prong. I moved into a new place with a 4 prong. Do I need a 4 prong cord, or can I change the 4 prong adapter on the wall?


Hi nancy huerta...

You can change the cord or the receptical...
It will be easier to change the cord...
Purchase a four prong plug cord that will fit into your receptical, then wire your dryer for 4 wire instead of three wire use.
To see a picture and explanation of how to wire your dryer for a 4 wire plug go to the following webpage.

I bought a deckcell universal laptop charger. The product I received, has a plug that does not fit into a standard wall outlet. The two prongs that come out of the plug have a unconventional shape and...


If the prongs are shaped incorrectly then you might have a European model (or if you are in Europe then you might have an American Model). The AC adapter (the big block) should be rated for use in North America and Europe (input 100V - 240V) so you might just need to replace the plug half of the laptop charger. It might just be easier to contact the seller and ask them to send the correct plug for you AC Adapter.

Please rate if this helps.

P.S if you have any other appliance with a different prongs coming off the plug DO NOT PLUG IT IN!!! laptops chargers are ok because they are built to work in different voltages.

Can you use both 120 and 240 power


Canada is 120. U.K. is 240. This is only for the adapter (large block between PC and wall outlet). This adapter changes A.C. current from wall to D.C. current for laptop. If power adapter is from Canada.  You must buy a different power adapter.  These should be available in U.K. Bring old cords and block to computer store so you get the right plug and voltage.
