Display goes off when stop using, replaced batt still problem

Hi Vince and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete model number Star Trac.

Still, proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done) as these are the only easy user doable attempts:

  • • scrape clean the battery contacts;
  • • check and ensure battery lead wires are soldered/connected good at end points.

All others would be internal and would require access to and familiarity with a multi-meter and even a soldering iron.

New battery, clean term, machine will work with either batt just display turns off soon as flywheel stops

What you think

Expert:  Louie replied 10 months ago.

Appreciate the post back Vince.

Possibly a connection/component issue; internal hardware which would require that the unit be opened up for visual inspection, voltage/continuity/resistance checks, confirm faults and effect repairs.

Are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? If yes, do you have access to and familiar with a multi-meter and even a soldering iron?
