I have a Nordictrack Elite 2900 that I got used and has been sitting in storage for about a year. We finally brought it into the house but we are having a few problems with it.
When you turn on the power, the display backlight lights up, but there is no text on the display. The buttons work fine but no matter what you do, there is nothing displayed on the screen.
Also, whenever you press start to start using the treadmill, the belt will go fast for about a second and then immediately cut out. I have tried adjusting the reed switch, making sure all the connections on the control board were tight, cleaned the connection between the upper console and lower control board, but none of it made any difference.
Any idea what to try next? I am open to purchasing and replacing parts, but I don't want to do that until I can pinpoint the problem.
