Question about Precor EFX 546i Elliptical Version 4
As an 18 year fitnes repair technician of fitness equipment (and a six year advanced certified Precor tech) I can say without a doubt that an error 30 is NOT "no power to the upper board". think logically...if there's no power to the upper pca how can the upper pca tell you there is no power? good luck! PS: you can ask nicely and someone may give you the Precor Repair Manual we all get when we take the Precor Training Seminars. OH...an error 5 is usually caused because you hit a button just before the unit had finished booting up and you interupted the self diagnostic.

Error 30 is no power to upper PCA or upper console. I believe in the 546 there are 2 interconnect cables, one lower that runs from the back to the bottom of the mast, and an upper, that runs from the console, down the mast. They meet at the front and connect using what's known as a mid-point connector (technical, I know). Unfortunately, there's no real test available, aside from checking the 3 connections other than substituting out for a known good cable. You can remove the console and ensure that the cable wasn't plugged into the CSAFE port on the console board. Sometimes, if a machine has been transported or moved, this can happen as the CSAFE and LOWER PCA ports are identical, but it's printed on the actual circuit board under it. Now depending on the serial number sequence of the machine, the cable can route a few different ways, although most use a 2 interconnect cable system with a mid-point connector (little black female/female connector) I would be able to get a little more detailed if I had a serial number, the first 4 digits are enough to establish the particulars about a machine.
