Hi Thank you,
This indicates unfortunately that the console has been internally damaged by a power surge caused by the lightning.
It will need to be replaced as lightning causes severe damage to sensitive electronics such as your treadmill.
Its easy to replace but a bit pricey.
I will help you make the replacement its easy.
If you have a few basic hand tools you can do this with my assistance.
One piece of advice, when you have the new console, take a couple of pictures of the wiring clips before you remove them from the old board so you know for sure where to replace them;-)
There is no soldering required on this one.
The best place to get a new console is Treadmill Doctor, they are the best with regards ***** ***** and quality.
You can contact them by phone, the best way for this.
