The voltage is supplied by the power-supply through the RF/IF interface usually encased in a metal box on its own. Also without knowing the model number of your unit I cant help any further.

could be your inverter board, whitch controls the backlight. I could very well be the backlight as well, but that is less likely. Inverter boards are not all too expensive, and if you are knoledgable with laptops, i would say doit yourself, but if you have any doubts, take it to apple, sur it will cost more, but it is the safet bet.

It shut off and will not come back on. Its less than a year old, and only used four times.


I would check my connections on my power source and make sure I have 12 volts. If you have 12 volts on your power cable then I would contact our customer service group. They will glad to help you out. Our number is 800-633-1468.

My 997c has a low voltage message on the screen every 20 minutes.


When you have a low volt warning, it is simply because you have low volt. To confirm this use a multi-meter and check the voltage at:
A- the power connector for the GPS
B- the battery directly.
If A is bellow 10.5 V and B is above 11,x you have a cable problem (long or/and thin cable). If they are more or less the same, but bellow 10.5V you need to check your electric system.

Hi guys, i bought one a year ago, and just got it


Hi!
If your 220 is in portable configuration (runs on 8 'AA' batteries) make sure that the batteries are 1.5 volts and not 1.2 or 1.3 volts. (1.2V times 8 batteries is only 9.6V)
Also check the battery compartment as we see leakage from some batteries which corrodes the connector plates that the batteries hook up to.
One more thing...check to see that the power cord is plugged into the unit with the notch in the plug pointing UP. The rubber plug housing on the sounder allows the cord to be plugged in backwards if it's forced a litlle bit.
Best of luck!

Humminbird 343c will power down on its own


Hi!
If the unit shuts off on its own, firstly check your power supply. I keep seeing customers running their ssounders from a small, portable battery configuration that doesn't put out the correct voltage...mostly seen with AA size batteries being rated at 1.2 or 1.3 volts (8 batteries times 1.2 volts is only 9.6 volts).
If the power supply is not the issue then I would say the internal power circuit is suspect...this can only be repaired by a competent repair person who knows how and what they are doing. If you open the unit up, you'll not only void the warranty, you run the risk of killing the entire unit from static shock.
Best of luck in your repair!

My Humminbird Matrix 67 shows 11.3 volts on the


Hi!
Go into the menu (press menu twice) and look for the alarms tab. There is a setting you can change for a low battery warning, make sure it is set to off or as low as you can get it. Also it may be time for a software upgrade (available at a service center)
Best of luck!

Humminbird 240 won't start


Hi!
If your unit is a portable unit (takes 8 'AA' batteries), make sure that the batteries say 1.5 volts and not 1.2 or 1.3 volts as these won't have the right amount of power.
If not, make sure that the power cable (where it plugs into the sounder) is installed with the small notch pointed towards the top.
Best of luck!
