Hi!
Please go into the menu and select the 'Nav' tab then choose the 'Chart Orientation' setting and set to 'North - Up', also make sure 'North Reference' is set to 'True'.
If that doesn't work, reset the sounder back to factory defaults and try again.
Here's the manual to you sounder:

The depth reads 98 to 100 feet.


I need more details about the problem you are having to be able to help you.
My best guess is that your unit will only disply data between 98 and 100 feet?
If thats the case check the range setting on your unit. It may be set to only display that range. You can set it to auto and it will automatically adjust the range from zero to just over the maximum depth it is currently reading.

I have Humminbird 525 fish finder. I have power to the mount but no display on the screen.


If you have someone that has the same or simular unit just slide there control head to the base just to make sure you have enough voltage and current to power the unit. If the other unit powers up then there is a problem with the control head. Then you will need to call customer service to get it resolved.

Hi. Just wondering how should the transducer for my humminbird 525 fish finder/sounder be installed correctly? Thanks


You can take a picture of the transom of your boat and email it to Humminbird and they will email it back to you where the transducer should be mounted at. Our email address is service@humminbird.com.

If you know someone who has the same type unit, you could try your unit screen (control head) on their hookup to see if you obtain the same results. If so, there could be a problem with the unit and it would need to be shipped back to our factory for a service test. If you do know know anyone with the similar unit, please contact me at the following email address and I will send you a transducer to test with the unit. sbates@johnsonoutdoors.com

Unit will not start up. Push on button. Just dead. Appears to be connected correctly to a good battery. What could be the problem.? Are there fuses involved? Thank you for your help. Larry


There should be an in-line fusible link on the power supply wire and it should be checked for a blown fuse. If there is no fuse protecting the head unit, it may have received a voltage spike internally and caused internal circuit damage, requiring replacement. What can be done is remove the head display unit and wire it (with a fuse link) to battery posts and see if it powers up. If the unit does not come on, then the head unit will need to be replaced.

Transducer not connected


Sounds like an internal problem in the 947c. A factory reset may cure the issue if it's related to the operating system. Unfortunately I'm not sure how to do the reset on that model. I'll try to look it up and get back to you.
