I push the on/off button and nothing happens. (it is brand new and I am trying to acquire the satellite)


With the unit being brand new, the battery will require charging.
It is recommended to charge the battery for at least 4 hours before running it on the batteries alone.
Leaving it connected to the vehicle power cable while driving around will usually be enough to charge the unit after a day or so depending on how long the vehicle is running. Alternatively an AC power adapter can be purchased to keep the battery fully charged while away from the vehicle.

Sonocaddie v100 won't turn on....

Looking directly at the unit from the front, hold the left side button down for several seconds. The unit will turn on and if not, then the unit is defective.

Sometimes comes on. most times doesn't come on

You need a new Battery. You said if you powered up on the plug its working right? So try to charge the battery like 30mins or so then try to power on to battery. If not get a new batt.

Lost power- will not come back on

If you have a multimeter you should be able to check the out voltage on the powersupply to make sure the power cable isn't at fault. You may also try wigling the power cord a little bit to see if the unit will then get power. If so you have a faulty powercord. If there are any fuses they should usually be accessible from the outside; that's the point with them - they should be easy to change. I would put my money on the power cable. If you have access to a diferent power source try that out. If the unit works with a different power source your power source is at fault. If it still doesn't work the problem is within your unit. Check to see if any pins on the power source and/or the units power plug might be bent or dirty.
