In cases where you see either partial rowing stats or no resistance from Hydrow, You may be able to resolve these problems by unplugging and reseating the two encoder cables.
Note: While the process below is relatively simple, you will first need to remove Hydrow's front panels in order to access the necessary components.
To be thorough about this process it is important to check the connections both at the PCB end and at the encoder end.
- First, check that the PCB cables are attached:
- Inspect each to make sure that we get a good solid connection to the board as illustrated below:
- Next, on the opposite side of Hydrow. Unplug and reseat the cable for both the handle encoder & the brake encoder as shown below:
Once complete you can refer again to the video for the steps on replacing the front panels.
