Fishfinder 300C has stopped working, despite being only 3 months

My Fishfinder 300C, which is only 3 months old, will no longer power up, despite the battery being fully charged, the connections clean and the leads in good condition. I have also noticed that recently the temperature gauge started to not be displayed on the screen. I don't know if both issues are related. What do you suggest?
Thanks, Grant

    I resolved the issue I originally posted on Fixya, rather than the Fixya team providing any assistance.

I checked the fuse and it looked OK, however working on a hunch I decided to replace the fuse anyway. This immediately addressed the problem and my Fishfinder is now working again.

My 2009 300C Touring radio/navigation system was randomly shutting down and turning on again and on/off button was useless

just upgrade it. a new one will be less costlys than fixing the old.
make sure fuse to it are not loose. (or hairline cracked inside) new fuses are very cheap.
loose connector to it.
check for 12vdc to the radio when dead.

Garmin 300c fishfinder will go from correct depth to 0.0 ft while traveling.Have to turn it off and restart. It is on Hurricane deck boat 198. It is located between engine and leveling tabs.

My experience as a user is that turbulence around the transducer can cause mine to flash and the depth to remain static.Is your fault affected by speed? Sounds to me that you have a faulty connection causing the transducer to "not register". I'd check connections and also the integrity of the transducer. Hope that helps...
Best of luck

My Fishfinder 300C suddeny does not detect the depht anymore, all oher function are still working, please help!

First do this. From the Home screen, Seelct Full Screen > Menu > range. Use ROCKER to set the depth scale, and see whether the depth is displayed or not. If not check the transducer for fault. Check for voltage goint to it.
Use a test light or voltmeter to determine the polarity of the voltage source.
Connect the red (+ or positive) wire to the positive voltage terminal.

If you use the fuse block on the boat, route the positive connection
through the fuse
Connect the black (- or ground) wire to the negative voltage terminal.
Install or check the 3A fuse (on the fuse block or in the in-line holder).

Align the notches on the cable plug and on the back of the Fishfinder 300C. Insert the cable into the connector, and turn the locking ring
counter-clockwise until it stops.
If htese all are correct and voltage is there at the tranducer end, the tranducer is faulty, and should be replaced. OK

I recently charged my battery and since hooking it back up to my fishfinder it constantly says supply voltage too high transducer turning off. ive tested the battery and its perfectly fine.

Maximum voltage for that unit is 33V. Test the voltage with a multimeter at the fuse block or as close to the unit as you can. If you are reading less than 33 volts than your voltage input is fine and you need to contact garmin for a repair or replacement if your unit is still under warranty.

Also check your connections at the battery; make sure everything is clean and that you do not have any + and - wires switched.

Wii console got heated up and later on no power supply despite checking with neighbors power adapter. Brand new about 4 months old.Thanks for guidance in advance. ---pat_vv

If it's only 4 months old, call Nintendo Customer Support and explain that your Wii no longer powers on. It should still be under warranty and they'll send you a new Wii.

Repeated transponder issues with the lowrance 320c fishfinder

Reading the manual it does say that there is a temperature range for these. I"m not sure where you live but it might be cold enough that it is damaging the transducer in the off winter months.

Can anyone tell me where to find servicing information and schematics for the old APC Backups 300 model BK300? Mine has stopped working and I'd like to try fixing it, even though it is no longer made....

This if for the 300c but it should be similar.

If you can't turn your computer on when you plug it into the UPS (and the UPS is turned on and plugged in) then there probably isn't anything you can do to fix it. However, if you can turn your computer on, but the UPS doesn't keep it on when the power goes out, you might be able to just replace the battery in the UPS. Typically the batteries in UPS's only last 2-3 years.
