Question about Garmin 185 Sounder GPS Receiver
Fuse ok, ground ok, Power at power pin and ground at ground pin in end of cable. Opened back of case and have power and ground at power strip. When I push power button, the screen darkens but will not display any of my menue pages or GPS data, or transducer data, and will not power off. Its like the unit is dead. It has been used rarely and I keep it in a dry box when not used. Male and female pins look ok. No discoloration or burns on pc board. What about the battery? looks like a lithium memory battery of some kind. Did not remove to look at or test.
This looks thike a inverter that went out in this lcd withc couses the display to become blacked to you will not see anything the inverter is a part of th screen so both will need ot be replaced at this point.
Do not shoot the messagner but my soltuon will be to replace the lcd withinverter at this point

U say it isn't the battery? not so sure here, what is the voltage reading at the battery when u attempt turn the unit on, don't assume it is any good, that is a very common mistake, do the tests and you will find the problem. Let me know the results
