Dear Sir:
You must test the power supply inside of TV, if you have skill for to do oit use DVOM, otherwise you must call some service tech, or go to repair shop.
However try to tight every connector wires, for loose, breake(test the wires for continuity) or burn.
God bless you.

The battery is usually located at the back of the machine towards the top -- there may be a circuit board on top of the battery. And the second link listed below is a technical bulletin for certain models to help prevent damage to the battery during installation.

This link will take you to the 546i models and parts list. You can also find a parts diagram but you will need to match your serial numbers to the ones listed so you can pull up the correct diagram:

Error 44 precor eliptical 546

Precor Error 44, Un-commanded Lift Motion Probable Cause 1. Intermittent or bad connection in the lift position sensor(potentiometer).
2. Lift position sensor (potentiometer) is bad.
3. Lower PCA is bad.
Corrective Action
  1. Bad or intermittent connection of the lift position sensor (potentiometer) is the most common cause of the error 44. Inspect all wiring and connections related to the lift position sensor (potentiometer). Repair or replace wiring connections as necessary.
  2. Monitor the lift position number displayed while operating the lift in diagnostics mode. If the reading makes large changes or is erratic, the lift position sensor (potentiometer) is likely bad. Replace the lift position sensor (potentiometer) or lift motor if the lift position sensor (potentiometer) is internal to the lift motor.
  3. If the lift moves without any command entered either manually or through a program, replace the lower PCA.

Whenever I use our eliptical precor efx, as soon as the elevation starts it says error 45

Precor Error 45, Lift Moving in Wrong Direction Probable Cause 1. Lift motor hysteresis.
2. Lower PCA is bad.
Corrective Action 1. The error would usually occur when the lift was already in motion (usually downward) when a lift command in the opposite direction (upward) was made. Some lift motors used in production exhibited a very long turnaround time and the lift motor would still be moving in the original commanded direction while the control system was trying to move the lift in the opposite commanded direction. If the error continues to re-occur, replace the lift motor.
2. It is a rare condition, however if the lift moves in the opposite direction commanded, replace the lower PCA.

Trying to install channels on goodmans ld1962d. Not sure what active antenna is. No channels are found when we have aerial in or out.

check for antena cable plug condition, normaly 80% of low quality of antena signal, is conection on antena plug (inside)

1st open antena plug, check for condition/connection of cable.
2nd check for each part of cable well connected, and no wires crossed on middle cable
3rd check same to the other end of cable.
4rd check the signal on diferent tvs around house (if available)

if this general you dont have aerial signal in your house, check for your TV provider (cable) to test your arial signal.(Normaly this maybe a cable broken outside house).

I have an Error message 50 coming up when iturn on my eliptical

Precor Error 50, Too Much Brake (Magnet) Current Probable Cause 1. Shorted or damaged wiring between the lower PCA and the eddy current magnet is the most common cause for this error.
2. Bad eddy current magnet.
3. Bad lower PCA.
Corrective Action
  1. Thoroughly inspect the eddy current wiring and connections ensuring that the wires are not shorted to the frame or shorted together. Repair or replace damaged wiring as necessary.
  2. Disconnect the wires from the eddy current magnet. Using an ohm meter, check for approximately 100 ohms across the eddy current magnet terminals. If the reading is considerably low, replace the eddy current magnet. Measure ohms between each eddy current magnet terminal and the frame ground. You should have no resistance between the eddy current magnet terminal and the frame ground. If resistance is present this would indicate a partial short, replace the eddy current magnet.
  3. If the eddy current magnet wiring and the eddy current magnet are both good from the above tests, replace the lower PCA.
