Resolved Question:

When I switch on my Reebok ZR9 the display just flashes and a clicking noise is heard. None of the buttons work. I have removed the covers for the display and the motor drives but I can't see anything obvious wrong. Can you help?

Hi Joseph,First, make sure the safety key is fully inserted in the console.What is showing on the display when it flashes?Do you have a voltmeter available to take some test readings inside the machine?

Hi Pete,
The display flashes so quickly all I see is the back light flashing.
If it helps, I'm an Electronics Engineer and I do have a multi-meter. Where do you think I should take measurements?

Hi Joe,Test along the power input to the console to ensure it is receiving the correct voltage.If it is, and it continues to briefly flash on and off again, even when continuing to receive a good voltage supply, then it is likely that the console has a fault and will need to be replaced.
