Eagle Seacharter 642c back light flickers all the time

Eagle Seacharter 642c out of nowhere the backlight started flickering. Cannot see the display in the day light but can see it in between flickers at night. Eagle service wants $212.45 up front, sight unseen for the service. Not even two years old and they want over 33% to repair. Could this just be the back light? Does anyone have any ideas? Please Help! Thanks!

Mine did the same two weeks out of warranty and I was told by NAVICO, the Australian importer and repairer, to throw it in the bin as the whole unit would need replacing, thanks for the expert advice NAVICO. It will be the last Eagle/Lorance product I will ever buy.

Upper sise of screen flickering problem


Technology b> A laptop's display assembly consists of an LCD panel, an inverter board and a backlight lamp. The inverter board supplies power to the lamp which lights up the LCD screen as it generates images. Light from the lamp is then uniformly distributed over the panel to create images. b> Cause b> Flickering is commonly caused by a damaged or malfunctioning inverter. Because a faulty inverter is not able to supply adequate power to the backlight lamp, the screen goes dim each time the backlight loses power. In some cases, flickering may also be caused by a faulty connection between the inverter and backlight lamp. Diagnosis b> Resolving a laptop screen's flickering problem entails correctly diagnosing the problem and replacing the faulty component. You may diagnose the problem by hooking up the laptop to an external display unit, such as a projector. If the external display has the same display problem as the laptop's LCD screen, it is indicative of a motherboard or video card problem. If the external unit displays bright, crisp images, the problem is probably caused by the backlight or inverter. b> Solution b> You may repair a laptop screen's flickering problem by replacing the inverter board or backlight. Order parts from a trusted supplier and replace the component by referring to your product documentation.

Hi..i am using compaq presario cq 40 and screen is flickering.i had it checked and they told me lcd is the problem but they didnt even bother to check.they just turned it on and they told me that i have to...


When it flickers, can you still see the text when the screen goes dark?
May have to use a bright flashlight set right on the display to see
the text on the screen beside where the light sits.
That will tell you if it's the backlight.

You can also look at a grazing angle into one of the edges to see if the
backlight is flickering when the display does.
When it's cold, does it start with a slight pinkish color? That can be
a sign of backlight going bad.
Anything interesting happen when you flex the cable by moving the screen?

I'm not saying it's impossible, but I've never seen software cause
consistent screen flicker. And if the vga port doesn't flicker, sw is
even less likely the problem.

If you bet the odds, you'd bet on a bad display cable.
Won't hurt to try replugging it.

If that doesn't help, then your monitor may be dying....

My Eagle 642C iGPS does not work with Lakemaster chip


If you do not have the most current software upgrade, that may be the problem. Go to www.eaglenav.com. If a more current software is available, download per their instructions. Worth a try. That unit should display LakeMaster digital chars.

THE SCREEN FLICKERS ALL THE TIME, HOW CAN I FIX IT


The screen flickering could be the screen inverter starting to fail. The inverter sits under the screen behind the bezel, it takes the low voltage DC power from the power adapter and converts it to high voltage for the screens backlight. If the inverter starts to fail, you either get a dim display that finally goes dark or get flickering like you see in some store lighting fixtures when the flourescent bulbs are failing.

Samsung 226bw visible flickers just after it is turned on


You may have a faulty inverter or loose power inverter connection. OR
You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Backlight flickers 2 years old to the date do you


Furuno has similar displays. I don't know if Eagle provides the same support but you may be able to find an actual schematic diagram technical manual from them if you ask nicely i don't know if Eagle has any government contracts but you can try and tell them you are with some government agency like DOD navy or coast guard or homeland security ;) and see if they will send you a PDF of the manual also try Retrevo.com they may have the techmanual on file. It sounds most likely like a connector problem between the LCD and the power supply. Does it only happen out on the water (vibration or shaking)?

No backing light


Eagle only gives out a 1 year warranty on their products, so as far as I know you wont be able to get it fixed for free, but I would email them and see what they say.
