tried reset--- unplugging unit---canned air to blow around tv buttons
Remove the console from the treadmill and remove the backremove and replace the ribbon cables that run from the keypads to the control board (they are flat plastic strips that push into the board).remove and replace all the connections on the consolereattach the console and calibrate by doing the following:1. With the key off press the speed + and stop buttons at the same time and hold2. place the key on and release the buttons3. press the stop key once4. press the speed up til it reaches 855. if your max speed is 10 mph then it should read about 9.8-10.2If the keys will not work then the console is bad and would need replaced.
where do you get the ribbon cable ?? radio shack?? and do you need any special tools
The ribbon cable is molded plastic that is attached to the buttons, it is similar to a microwave touchpad. Unfortunately you can not purchase these separate anywhere unless you can get a used console on ebay.
so are you saying to just remove the existing ribbon cable and re-install----is that what you meant
yes try that and hopefully it is just a bad or dirty connection. Sometimes sweat will get into the console and cause problems.
