Hi there... mine did the same the very first morning I took it out. I rang and sent it to the manufactures. It was a very common thing and they fixed it within 10 days. I have not had a problem since. It should not of happened in the first place though. I have read a heap of forums on this exact matter and i think you would be the 10,000 person with this very problem. I have also had big problems with my transducer... so overall I am not impressed with Raymarine.
All the best mate.

How do i get the fish on the screen to look like fish


Your unit should have a setting labeled "FISH ID" turn this setting on and you will see fish shaped icons instead of arches on your screen. You may also see numbers by these icons. Those numbers represent the depth of the fish at that moment.
Be forewarned that at times your unit will show the fish icons when there aren't actually any fish below the boat. Hope this helps.

I just bought a used boat with a Humminbird 160 fish finder on it but, the only thing that shows up on the screen is the temperature, NO DEPTH and NO FISH, is there a setting i need to set as i am clueless...


Check to make sure the transducer is hooked up correctly, and check the actual transducer for signs of damage. Transducers are fragile, and a good whack can break the crystal inside. For more troubleshooting, here is a helpful link with the Owners Manual for your Humminbird.

Screen shows bottom fine but doesnt show any fish i have changed every setting but nothing works


Fish on the bottom show as a blur, similar to weed, and pelagics show the same, but because of there position they are easy to recognise. Large singe fish like schnapper and sharks tend to show as an upside down V. You will have to use it often and you will eventually, by experience be able to tell whether you are looking at fish or weed.

How do you get the fish to show up on the screen on a lowrance X96 depth finder? We just got it and there is no manual with it.


Are you looking for the little fish symbols?
Press MENU, down arrow to SONAR FEATURES and press ENT. Arrow to FISH SYMBOLS and press ENT. Press EXIT twice. Any significant return in the water will now show up as a fish symbol.

Are you looking for the fish arches?
You won't get any arches unless the boat is moving and of course there are fish passing within the transducers signal. The shallower the water, the less area you are covering and less likely to get a fish return.

There is an OK guide to understanding what you see on the sonar screen at the link below. It if pretty technical but parts of it may help you out.

Moisture in Navman Fish 4100


Yes, you can. In fact, you can actually clean the circuit board with DISTILLED water and then dry it with a hair dryer or leave it in hot sunlight. (No guarantee that the unit is still functional.)
