    I have a garmin 421S device which stopped working while fishing. It displayed a message "Battery Voltage Is Too High" , turned off and now it doesnt turn on at all, it is completely dead. There is a fuse at the cable connecting the device to the battery but it is intact.
    Is there any internal fuse?
    Any ideas?
    Thank you

I had this same problem with my Rino 530. I searched google with no luck. As I was on the phone with Garmin, I put side pressure on the adapter (that plugs into the clip, which clips to the battery) and the red light would stay on. They said I needed a new wall charger and clip. So in the mean time I wrapped electrical tape around the adapter to keep pressure on it. Charges great now. Hope this helps!

How to solve sonar failure(Showing on Display) in garmin 160c fishfinder.

I would guess that "sonar failure" would mean that no signal is being received from the transducer.
Trouble shoot accordingly.

Check your battery voltage, this can occur with low voltage. Charging the battery often resolves this issue.

My Garmin 400c dual beam transducer keeps freezing up, it will flash "0" depth and then go to a "updating software" screen.

check your battery voltage. Low voltage can cause errors end prevent the sonar from starting up. If charging the battery doesn't work then contact garmin for a replacement.

Display reads sonar timed out

check the battery voltage as low voltage can cause the unit to display errors and prevent the sonar from starting up. This unit is more sensitive to low voltage than many other electronics. If charging the battery or replacing it with a known good battery doesn't work then contact garmin for a replacement of your fishfinder.

How do you verify that the unit is charging the batteries? Freedom 20 Inverter charger

The really only way one can tell if batteries are being charged is assure them are topped off then trickle charge them with external charger overnight and then check the voltage is 13-14.5 VDC. If not check that battery life is not expired and exchange them if it is. ALSO... one can always extend the life of batteries (deep-cycle) by charging them with a large professional automotive unit in the high power START position over night. WARNING: Assure the caps are loose as you "boil away" the plate corrosion over night due to the very explosive H2 gas generated. No smoking!!

Xantrex 458 freedom....has stopped charging house batteries off of engine alternator. Alternator is showing that it works (dash gauge). It does charge while on shore power or generator....but not charging...

Fis\rst of all is the inverter supplying 120 VAC? when turned on?. If so the inverter seems to be working.I think your problem is in the truck alternator/charging system. The inverter is independent of this charger..

My Garmins 530 wont power up and I have replaced the power pack

PRobably a defective logic board at this point. Was the jack loose before? Can you measure if the voltage goes in using a multimeter? If the jack is connected properly and it does not turn on, it's your board. If all else fails, there are third party Garmin repair services that will fix it for cheap.

My Garmin Etrex Legend starts up and finds the satellites, but then screen goes blank except for vertical line on the screen.Stays that way until batteries wear out. Fixable?

I have the same Garmin product. It had a problem displaying anything. I went to the Garmin web site and got tech support. They fixed the problem by telling me what to do. Try them befor you throw it away. But it sounds un-repairable

I dont know how old your battery is but they will sometimes show full charge but not last long cause of age. Try a differant battery.
