Question about Precor Exercise & Fitness

1 Answer

I have a PVS12DT Personal Viewing System, Integrated Controller out of a precor exercise machine I am trying to repair for a friend. the problem is garbled screen and has a vertical roll. I cannot even pull up a menu. I am guessing a capacitor or two have gone bad in the vertical circuit. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

The tuner inside the unit has most likely gone bad. I've seen a lot of these units do this in the last year or so. Precor use to refurbish these on site but they discontinued the program. If a tuner goes bad in one of these they want you to replace the whole viewing system now

I am not sure where you can find a used one, but I can find a couple of new options for you. Depending on your machine, there are two different motors available. One is for a 220V machine and the other is for 110V machine. I will post links to both.

Typically this is caused by a bad pillow block bearing. I would suggest trying to pin point the sound a bit better, but this is common of the pillow block bearings.
