Question about Precor EFX 546i Elliptical Version 4

1 Answer

I did not physically see the machine working properly prior to this issue, but I was told it was working fine before I took the (handle)bars off and disconnected the electronics to move it through a narrow doorway...and I have no reason to doubt that it was working fine. Upon re-assembly, I'm receiving an ERR30 message AFTER seeing an "ERROR 5 - Stuck Key" message. Upon disassembly, I did not note specifically the CSAFE and LOWER PCA positioning. I do not remember which one the cable was plugged into. I removed the circuit board, but there is nothing on the underside to indicate which is which. Regardless, however, whether the cable is plugged into the CSAFE or LOWER PCA (whichever is which), the ERR30 message appears, so this leads me to believe the "error" is occuring elsewhere. What I believe to be the serial number is 75D18N0033. Another number on the machine that could be the serial is 250Z4A. Any suggestions/help will be greatly appreciated.

DO NOT PLUG THE DATA CABLE IN TO THE CSAFE PORT. It needs to be plugged into the 'lower board' port. Error 30 is a communication problem - check to see that the cable did not get damaged in the move. Hopefully you did not blow out the upper board by plugging it in incorrectly.

How do I repair rear outside door handle?

It's physically broken. Handle assembly needs to be replaced. My brother complained about having to replace it once a year on his Toyota. He also warned not to buy used replacements because they are always "ready to break." He told me he could see the stress cracks in used handle assemblies.

I installed a new Polaris winch on my 570 and it powers out but not in any ideas?

Jeff, The winch direction is controlled by the contactor and (polarity/relay) is switched using the switch/controller on the handle bars. I think you are dealing with one of a few possible situations. Lets narrow them down. 1) The winch motor. Bad in one direction only? this is highly unlikely. The body of the winch is electrically grounded properly or it would not run in the out direction..You may be able to manually reverse polarity to test the motor. If you do not understand this concept, then don't attempt anything that could make a short. 2) The contactor is a relay that has very delicate copper studs. If you over torqued them during the install, they easily break off. The contactor is the most likely issue. Double check the studs and ensure the wiring pattern is correct to and from the contactor. Ensure the wires/nuts washers are not touching the other leg of the contactor/studs - i.e. anything that could make a short. 3) The handle bar switch may be defective or wired wrong. Isolate the switch and make sure it works properly with a volt meter/continuity test.

I have personally experienced broken contactor studs, defective contactors and damaged handlebar switches. It took time to properly isolate and repair the issue.

Turn the radio on, press the mode button on the handle bar, press the #4 button on the radio (top right), press the volume down. If it's a software related fade issue, this will return it.

This defect was only possible on early 06 models with 6.8 version software. If it's mid 06 or newer, or if the software has ever been updated, it wont work.

You most likely have a physical defect with the radio. For repair options, contact Iron Cross Audio.

Hi, I've got a broken spring bar on my Tissot PRC 200 and would like to replace it. I understand that it has got a lug width of 19mm. Does that mean I should buy a 19mm spring bar, or should it be a...

Two of the spring-bars broke on the clasp of my PRS200, so I took it to an un-named watch repair shop that was closer than the Tissot-authorized store (Leslie Gold Watch Co.) at which I bought the item 5 years prior. After the repair, the clasp kept popping off, so I took it to the Tissot store, and they told me that it was because the ends of the bars didn't fit properly. They replaced the faulty bars for me at no cost, and the watch has been sitting on my wrist fine for the last year-and-a-half.

Light comes on. does not process

I borrowed one of these and it didn't work. I had the exact same problem you all are having. The problem? I had the handle pointing to the back instead of the front. Turned the handle around to the front. Presto!! It works..
