Try removing your chart card then powering up your unit. Chances are your chart could be bad and is causing the problem.

Locks up after a few seconds/have to kill power to reset


This may help. Mine has the GPS antenna build into the bracket at the back. I removed the bracket and the unit did not go into the error screen and the sounder worked fine. The GPS would not locate but it has not antenna attached so DOH!! I have orderd a new antenna with the BNC connector and will post if that fixes the problem. At this point I'm guessing its a blow GPS antenna.

Garmin 168 Sounder LCD screen display errors


I had the same problem and contacted Garmin. This is being caused by a software issue that started when the government updated the software in their WAAS satellites. The Garmin website will give you instructions on how to correct this but I have listed them below:

Power on unit
Press enter to get past the I Agree screen
Now you should be on the satellite page, press the menu button one time
Highlight WAAS off and press enter
By doing this, the unit should not shut down.

I followed these instructions and my 168 Sounder is working fine.

GPSMAP 235 Sounder


Some 235s had a problem with the contrast setting. When the contrast is set to full the screen turns black.

When you turn on the GPS and the screen goes black, try tapping the left arrow on the track pad a few times. You should see the screen start to lighten. If that doesn't work, tap the power key and try tapping the left arrow a few times.

Si-tex cvs 106 mk11echosounder


To re-program the Si-tex CSV-106 depth sounder to feet/meters/fathoms: Push and hold down the MENU key while turning the unit on (POWER key) to enter a special menu. Release both keys after you hear two beeps, almost immediately. Use the LOWER ALARM key to select the desired unit for depth, then turn off the depth sounder. That's it, just turn on again to see the change.
There is also another menu (for testing sounder) available by pressing the MODE and turning on as above.

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.

KOR-630A how do disable sound?


The only way to do this is to locate the piezo sounder on the control board & remove it. However, I do not recommend trying to do this yourself, unless you are trained & experienced in high voltage electronics, as there are INSTANTLY LETHAL voltages present inside, even if the unit is off & unplugged. The sounder is a black, cylindrical device with a small hole in the middle. It will be found on the printed circuit board behind the keypad, mounted either horizontally or vertically. There will be either 2 or 3 connections to the sounder.
