GPS/Fishfinder keeps dropping and restarting

I have a Simrad CE33 GPS Fishfinder.

It powers up ok but then drops and restarts itself. I have had a technician look at it and they replaced the feed power cable, but problem persists.

The set is about 5 years old.

Any ideas please.

Had an ongoing connection problem with EQ 40 fishfinder, new power cable did
not sort it completely. Cable now unavailable anyway. Resolved, permanently
I hope by my wife, the pins were not long enough to reach the sockets in the connecting plug. So I inserted a very fine spring into the sockets, reassembled the connecting plug, somewhat crunchily and it's working. The fine spring was robbed from my wifes jewellry making kit, stuff called "Tiger Tail" and used for re-inforcing necklace ends and suchlike girlie stuff. I claim no credit at all for this repair, it has had me stumped for seven years at least it was all down to my wife. Ok I'll stop grovelling now.

Do a software upgrade to the CE33 unit and then a master reset by unplugging the power cable , then press and hold PWR and CLR buttoms while plugging back the power cable. Wait a couple of second while the software reloads and should run smooth....
NOTICE: All the previous data as routes, waypoints, etc that you had will be lost by the master reset.

Simrad CE33, I have only a blue screen when I switch it on

First thing to do is remove all cables and charts from the machine except the power cable. Try powering on and see what happens. If the same issue occurs it sounds like a boot code failure has occurred. Unfortunately, if that is the case those machines are no longer supported by Simrad and I would recommend looking around ebay or craigslist for another.

I have a Simrad CE33 GPS/fishfinder. It has a black spot on the screen and keeps growing.. What can do to resolve this.I

Most likely the unit needs the entire display replaced and moisture may have played a role in this.

Bad display depending on cost of unit may mean buying a new one.

GPS keeps freezing, then shuts off, then restarts again, and it goes through the same process over and over again

I had a similar problem with my Garmin Nuvi 255. What I found was I needed to downloaded Garmin Webupdater from their website (not sure of the url) and download the new GPS software to my computer and then into my GPS ( in that order, they insist).
Make sure beforehand that you have charged your GPS at least 3-5 hours so that it has enough power to stay on during the entire process otherwise it could be rendered inoperable from the download.

Was there ever a solution to the Fishfinder 4500 going blank but still powered on????

Navman 4150 fishfinder

Depth: Could be for a number of reasons, too deep for the sounder - check the manual for it's max depth. Dirty water, sounder unable to penetrate through to the bottom. Weed or other debris covering the transducer. Transducer on a swing mount & being pushed out of alignment then dropping back in once stopped.

Speed: Is the speed readout controlled by a GPS or paddlewheel? If it's GPS, check the power connection of the sounder, may be loose which would also cause the depth to 'drop out'. If it's paddlewheel, you're down to bad connections or faulty unit.
