I have a weider crossbow platinum and when I plug it in, nothing displays on the console. the transformer appears to be working, but the display does not seem to work. i did find some disconnected wires, but splicing them did not fix the problem. Any ideas? Just a bad computer??

Hello there, If you go to iconservice.com they have contact information, manuals and just about any other information you may require for your Crossbow.
Fyi the first thing I would check is the power supply itself to be sure it is putting out the correct voltage.
Good Luck! Tim

ADJUSTING THE RESISTANCE When the resistance setting changes, the motor will be heard. To prevent damage to the motor, do not pull any of the cables while the resistance setting is changing. If a cable is pulled, the words RELEASE HANDLES AND READJUST RESISTANCE AS DESIRED may appear in the main display on the console.If this message is displayed repeatedly but no cable is being pulled, there may be too much tension on the Upper Cable . Adjust the tension as described below. To decrease the tension on the Upper Cable.turn the two 3/8” x 38mm Tension Screws twice,counterclockwise. Select the desired resistance setting.Repeat this step if necessary.CLEANING THE BAR GUIDES Over time, dust may build up on the Crossbar Guides , causing a squeaking noise as the resistance system is used. If this occurs, wipe off the Crossbar Guides with a damp cloth and a mild, non-abrasive detergent. Do not use solvents.
RECALIBRATING THE CONSOLE To recalibrate the Console , first plug in the resistance system . Plug the indicated end of the Transformer into the Back Mech Cover . Plug the other end of the Transformer into a 120-volt outlet. All indicators and displays on the console will flash once; the console will then be ready for use. The motor may be heard while the resistance system calibrates itself. Important: Always plug in the transformerwhen using the resistance system., press and hold the NEXT button and the MOTORIZED WEIGHT ADJUSTMENT + button for five seconds. When the buttons are released, a number will appear in the REPS display. Press the NEXT button again, then press the MOTORIZED WEIGHT ADJUSTMENT + button; this will start the recalibration process. This may take a few minutes as the motor moves between the lowest and highest resistance settings. When the motor finishes, unplug the transformer from the 120- volt outlet.The Console will be recalibrated. Use the resistance system as described in the CONSOLE

Plug the indicated end of the Transformer into the Rear Mech Cover . Plug the other end of the Transformer into a 120-volt outlet. All indicators and displays on the console will flash once; the console will then be ready for use. The motor may be heard while the resistance system calibrates itself. Important: Always plug in the transformer when using the resistance system.
Then, press and hold the NEXT button and the motorize resistance + button for five seconds. When the buttons are released, a number will appear in the REPS display. Press the NEXT button again, and then press the MOTORIZED RESISTANCE + button; this will start the recalibration process. This may take a few seconds as the motor moves between the lowest and highest resistance settings. When the motor finishes, unplug the transformer from the 120-volt outlet.
If you cannot hear the motor reset it self or cannot see display then with multi meter check DC voltage if not replace transformer , if you have DC voltage you will need to remove the cover locate the motor assembly disconnect the assembly from the upper electronics. Then apply a 12v DC voltage to the motor and see if it engages easily if not then replace motor. If motor functions properly replace connector back on the motor and use a multi meter connect it to motor and plug in the transformer and you should see DC voltage going to motor if not replace upper console.

Hi, i am looking for a weider platinum exercise tape and or manual i have owners manual


The best source I can recommend is that you contact Weider Fitness and see if they such material. Since it was design to compete with the Blow Flex and they have basic exercise movements that both utilize. I have seen some Video off of YouTube even though they are 3 to 5 minutes in length it will give you a starting point.

I have a Weider Platinum crossbow and the resistance isn't setting properly if at all. Is there a simple solution that I can do to fix this?


This is a common problem with this machine, the wiring inside the back. Mine was broken too, it was just a loose wire, but the stupid wire is so inside a protective case, you have to take the whole machine apart to be able to reach it.

You'll need a technician to come to your home. Call Icon to get a reference.

I have a Weider Platinum XP800 Crossbow that will not start.


I had the same problem. Take off the black box at the base and check to see if any of the wires broke lose from the connectors, mine did. One pair of wires was alot shorter than the rest, so when the previous owner disassembled the crossbow he lifted the unit too far before disconnecting the wire connectors thus braking the two wires from the connector. Simply remove the remaining wire bits from the connector with something sharp (unplug machine from the wall). Then take the broken wires and push them down into the connector terminals with a butter knife. The terminals will cut through the wire insulation and make a contact with the wire. Problem solved.

Console will not calibrate using steps provided in the manual.


Plug the indicated end of the Transformer into the Rear Mech Cover . Plug the other end of the Transformer into a 120-volt outlet. All indicators and displays on the console will flash once; the console will then be ready for use. The motor may be heard while the resistance system calibrates itself. Important: Always plug in the transformer when using the resistance system.
Then, press and hold the NEXT button and the motorize resistance + button for five seconds. When the buttons are released, a number will appear in the REPS display. Press the NEXT button again, and then press the MOTORIZED RESISTANCE + button; this will start the recalibration process. This may take a few seconds as the motor moves between the lowest and highest resistance settings. When the motor finishes, unplug the transformer from the 120-volt outlet.

Weider Platinum Crossbow is locked up.


i have the manual, to recalibrate the machine press and hold the next button and the motorized wieght adjustment+ button for five seconds. when the buttons are released, a number will appear in the reps display. press the next button again, then press the motorized weight adjustment+ button: this should start the reclaibration process. i am lucky i bought the machine in 10-2004 and it has a ten year warrenty. it isn't working it happened before and they had to replace the motor. if it works remembe to unplug the machine when not in use. it is a great machine to get in shape with. you just have to use it.
