Northstar Boating - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


If it is connected to the boat motor check the voltage that is coming from the engine and clean the battery post. This solved the screen flickering.

If you don't want to do that just call Northstar customer support and see what they suggest.

It appears that the back-light, a Cold Cathode Fluorescent Tube about 3mm diameter, is not working.
There are two likely causes.
1. Tube has failed.
2. High Voltage supply circuit has failed.

I'm currently pulling my unit apart to determine the cause. I suspect the tube is the problem but I will post more when I have it apart

Does anyone know what the correct operating voltage of this Cold Cathode Fluorescent Tube is? Northstar could not provide me with a service manual.

The screws are 1/16" or similar Allan Screws (about 1.6mm internal between flats). They usually can be undone with a 1/16 Allan Key but some of the screws can't be unscrewed with this key.

I'm having difficulties uploading the photos at the moment but I will try and fix that.

From the owners manual (page 78, link below) NMEA out (+) is the white wire and NMEA (-) or ground is the black wire.

The closest I could find was for the Navman 6000/6500 models.
See the link below.
Hopefully it'll be of some assistance.

Hi Robert
As this is a discontinued product, I would suggest you contact the manufacturer directly using the link I've included. Most, if not all transducers are made by Airmar so I expect you'll get some joy.

Hope this helps
