Hello William,

First, check that the security key is securely fitted and is not loose - remove it and reattach it again;

if that doesn't help, then there may be a stuck button on the console that is preventing the others from responding, or there may be some loose wiring inside the console.

Reply back and let me know what you find...

Happy New Year!

Well the buttons are flat and digital not like a keyboard button not sure how it would be stuck and yes the security key is fine because the lid screen goes into display mode when I remove it and it beeps when I remove it and replace it how would I check for stuck button or loose wiring it's a fairly new machine I doubt loose wiring is the problem but I've pressed every button to no avail it's like it stopped working but all the other electronic parts on that same board function such as led screen it even displays my heart rate when I grip handles

Hi William

If you have already tried that then the console has a more serious fault and will likely need to be replaced.
