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.

Battery running out fast after changing casing despite battery is 3 months old. normally gets about 48 hrs...nowgetting only 8 to 10 hrs.


I've seen this happen before; the camera button was pressed down halfway by the misaligned casing so as to constantly focus when in camera mode. The problem is that it also seemed draw power when not in camera mode.

The misalignment was so subtle, I could only see it after pressing the button all the way down after which it wouldn’t come back out again.

I just levered the part of the casing that was holding the button down (marked in red) and clipped it back when the button could come out again. When doing this, try to make sure that part of the casing doesn’t snag on the button again.

It will not turn on. It is 3 yrs old.


If it is not turning on at all then more then likely the battery is dead. Try plugging it into the charger and leaving it for over night. Then try turning it on. If that doesn't work you may need a new battery. I would not recommend doing this yourself s it involves some soldering. I had a friend of mine change my battery and it didn't quite work right after that. I am also including a link for the free chat feature that palm has. I have used it several times and have always had very good results. Best wishes.

At the bottom of this page it says Palm Chat. Click on the chat now and follow the online prompts.

Short Battery life, Randomly shuts down, and more...


sounds like the battery is shot. Get a new battery and fully charge it. I try to charge my phone more off of a power outlet and not the cigarette lighter in a auto. The battery will last longer that way. something about cigarette lighters. As far as the messaging and failed calls goes. up grade your tower signals. contact your cell phone company and get the number for upgrading the towers.

I have a Palm TX. 3Years old. 6 Months ago had to calibrate Touchscreen every day. 2 months ago had to calibrate touch screen 2/3 times a day. Recently can't calibrate touch screen. Targets go into loop...


Same happened to my 3 month old TX. I just recharged it, and all was OK! Sounds strange at first, but in my hometown, it is very humid, so maybe it got some moist inside and that caused some variations in the power or battery or voltage... dunno, maybe you need some cleaning, or try to calibrate while plugged.

Hope to be useful!

My touch screen is no longer working on my Tungsten E2


The digitizer is defective and needs to be replaced.

You can find digitizer parts in ebay or other on-line companies, at reasonable prices.

Regarding the labor cost, depending of the repair shop you choose, it may be cheap or expensive.

Also, if you have minimum experience and skills in fixing electronics, you can try it. really is not so difficult.

Best regards,

No longer recognises stylus imput


Just disable the settings where it says to turn off the backlight & PDA power after certain minutes and set your standby time (in power battery setting) to 0, then leave your PDA on until it fully drains (usually a week or two).

Stops while talking


Hi folks with aging JAMS. My JAM is still dying (complete shutoff) using phone. I wish it would just lose the phone signal but my unit shuts off completely during phone calls. I can have 80% charge. I spoke with a friend that mentioned on his cell phone (different manufacturer) that although his battery will show a full charge or less, the time it takes for the charge to go down is ridiculously fast once the battery is old. He watches his phone lose a charge in under an hour though it charges to full.

I wish IMATE would make some formal post regarding when to get a new battery and what symptoms are possible. I'm a bit hesitant to invest in batterys if the issue is hardware. I use the unit alot--as a PDA, a phone, etc. It gets jostled about so maybe something is lose inside, though I doubt it.

I purchased a cheap phone charger so in the car I'm recharging and at work I just keep a cheap USB to plug charger. I reserve the phone when I'm out. This is not really optimal for cell phone use but it's a behavioral fix. I figure I should be looking at a new device (despite high prices) soon.

I did a full discharge/charge cycle or two or three but only noted short term benefit. At some point the quirky behavior returned and off went the PDA cell with the 80% charge. I see dots of us around the net. Again my Jam is probably 3 years old this March.
