Right click on the computer's destop and view the display properties. Under the tab where you can alter resolution you can manage multiple monitors, It sounds like your laptop is setup to display through it's external VGA by default. Click on the two squares it shows and try to set your main screen as default.

SOURCE: My sportline watch resets itself during exercise

I don't know this watch personally but it sounds like it may be a short circuit or maybe one or two of the buttons may be being activated during a particular movement. I'd recommend you take it to a watchmaker for diagnosis.

"E04": Incline motor wrong, check if the VR of the incline motor connects well or replug it. The
mark of the DC motor and control board should be matched connected. Sometimes you also test the wires from motor and restart the treadmill

Error message E1 on tempo 632t treadmill - what is it and how can I fix it ?


Hi There,

Tempo....check this lower control board for a small potentiometer or little square cube with a screwdriver slot in the top. Adjust this pot CW to 3/4 full turn and retry. Check feedback sensor(s). Does the belt move and then error and stop, or never start? These lower boards do fail and you can contact jatinah@rocketmail.com for more help if needed. Good Luck

Hi my power first t960 treadmill stops working. it turn's on. startup beeps are ok. display turn's on and showing regular digits. but non of keys working and consul dos not response to any key. thanks


Check the cable from console to motor control board. It would be a detachable connector on both ends. Try removing and reconnecting it. Sometime such problems can occur because of the bad contacts of connectors.Please remember to remove the power before attempting any service inside treadmill.

The belt on my Sole F63 will not turn


It sounds like you have a blown motor controller. If your machine is older than 5 years then that's pretty normal for sole. Their belts don't last very long and they cause stress on the controller. You'll have to replace the motor controller and the walking belt.

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.

We had the lift frame crack on our Nordic Track A2550 after very limited use (but 1mo. after warranty). We replaced it in February and after 500 additional miles, the lift frame has cracked again. I...


General Construction
  • The most basic breakdown of a treadmill: a continuously moving belt powered by a motor over a deck that is mounted on a sturdy metal frame. The variables are the size of the belt, the power of the motor, the thickness and composition of the platform as well as the range of options that increase both function and cost of the treadmill. Making the right choices on all these permutations will add to the enjoyment and benefits of using your treadmill.
Frame Composition
  • Frames are generally made from aluminum or steel. Even if there's no difference in the tensile strength in the frames, steel is better because it will produce a heavier treadmill. That increases the machine's stability and lessens the vibrations generated by your exercise, especially running. Frames can be either bolted or welded together. Welded frames are stronger, and there is no risk of a bolt working loose during long periods of operating the treadmill.
Motor Size
  • Most treadmills have two electric motors. One raises and lowers the deck, allowing you to get a versatile workout. The more important motor is the one that moves the exercise belt under your feet. The drive motor turns a flywheel that is connected by a belt---similar to the belts for the engine of your car---to the front roller. The front roller pushes the exercise belt to the back of the treadmill where a free-moving rear roller serves as the exercise belt's turnaround point. Check for the continuous horsepower (CHP) and revolution per minute (RPM) rating on the motor. In fact, lift the motor cover and look for the ratings stamped directly on the motor. A motor that needs high RPMs (more than 5,000) to generate enough torque to drive the exercise belt is a candidate for overheating and is unlikely to last long. If your plan is only to walk---not run---on your treadmill, a 1.5-horsepower motor with less than 5,000 RPMs will suffice. But if you weigh more than 200 lbs. or you plan to run on your treadmill, you will need at least a 2-horsepower motor with an RPM rating of 4,000 or, preferably, less. Choosing one with 2.5 horsepower or more will be even better if you plan to run for long workouts. When in doubt, go up in horsepower. The motor not only moves the belt but it must overcome the resistance you provide with each stride. Smaller motors with high RPM ratings will allow the belt to hesitate slightly. In addition, you likely will be moving more slowly than the speed displayed on the treadmill's console if you are trying to run. Larger motors might be noisier, so look for a motor housing that absorbs some of the machine noise when the treadmill is in operation.
Belt Size
  • Your workout plans also will dictate what size belt and rollers you need. The treadmill's exercise belt will be made of a thin, multiply polyester/fabric mix with a PVC top coat, which produces the best combination for reducing friction and the heat it generates. This will extend the life of the belt and prevent slipping while you're in motion. Although the surface will be smooth against the deck, the PVC coating will be waffled underneath your feet for better traction. Even if you have short legs and you only plan to walk on the treadmill, you should get a belt at least 18 inches wide and 48 inches long. If you plan to run, a 20-inch belt width is better and 22 inches is best, and you shouldn't choose anything less than 54 inches in length. Longer---up to 60 inches---is better, especially for tall runners. The treadmill will run more smoothly with bigger rollers because the rollers will have more grip surface for the belt as it is propelled over the deck. If you plan to run on your treadmill, rollers with 2-inch diameter are the minimum. Some high-end treadmills come with 3.5-inch rollers. Larger rollers also result in less stress on the bearings; a 3.5-inch roller will need to rotate roughly 60 percent less than a 2-inch roller to cover the same distance.
Platform Surface
  • Treadmill decks are made of wood or, more specifically, composite wood substitutes, either particle board or medium density fiberboard (MDF). For runners, an MDF deck at least 1-inch thick is the minimum. A 3/4-inch surface might be OK for walking, but it will be too bouncy for running and will crack more easily. The deck surface will have a laminate coating---preferably on both sides---to allow the exercise belt to slide smoothly. Treadmills commonly have rubber grommets built into the frame to provide cushioning as you exercise. Some treadmills have shock absorption only in the front (landing area) so that you have a firmer push-off for your next stride. With the built-in shock absorption and the smooth surface, a workout on a treadmill is likely to be less stressful on your joints than running outdoors, unless you have access to a perfectly level wood-chip path.
Speed and Incline
  • Most treadmills now come equipped with easy-to-reach controls that allow you to change the belt speed and the incline of the deck while the belt is in motion. The lift motor generally uses a hydraulic lift to raise and lower the treadmill on its front legs. The elevation motor should have a thrust value of at least 400---more for runners---so the deck can be shoved up without any hesitation during exercise. Some treadmills use gears for elevation. That's neither as smooth nor as reliable as hydraulic lifts. The speed of the belt is controlled from the console of the treadmill. As you raise your speed by 1/10 mile per hour, the motor subtly increases the power it is generating to the rollers, much as a hair dryer does less subtly as you click from medium to high. For runners, look for a treadmill that provides a speed of at least 12 miles per hour and allows an elevation of at least 10 percent. That will give you the opportunity to include some speed work and hill training in your workouts.
More Features
  • Some treadmills come equipped with iPod ports, built-in TVs, drink holders, cooling fans, computer-generated workouts and heart-rate monitors. The computer workouts will build in elevation-change programs, and you can punch in the starting speed of your workout and change it manually. Treadmills also allow you to create programs in which you can choose both the speed and elevation changes. Heart-rate monitors calculate your heart beats per minute and can be operated continuously using chest or arm bands or intermittently using a finger clip or by gripping a sensor on the front rail with one hand. But none of these features outweighs the importance of choosing the right belt and motor for your workout.
Safety
  • Make sure the treadmill has a safety release---usually a magnetic key---so you can stop the exercise belt dead in the event of an injury or other emergency. The treadmill is wired so that the key must be in place on or near the console to complete the electronic circuit and allow the machine to operate. Yet the key can easily be yanked free, immediately stopping the drive motor and putting the brakes on the exercise belt.
