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.

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.

Flickering monitor


Flickering screen display

Flickering on the screen can be caused by defective hardware in the computer or by improperly installed software, but it can also be caused by interference from external devices. The following examples describe situations in which your screen could start flickering:
  • Screen starts flickering because of interference caused by devices which generate magnetic fields, for instance:
    • a TV set
    • a laser printer
    • another monitor
    • fluorescent lights
    • hidden power lines
  • Apart from interference, an incorrect setting in your system CMOS setup can also cause flickering. On some systems it is possible to distinguish between interlaced and non-interlaced monitors. The setup of your system should always be colour non-interlaced.
  • Proximity to the monitor of fans, air-conditioning units or other devices with rotating motors.
  • The number of devices using power from the same electrical line. Are you overloading the plug?
  • Monitor placed on an unstable surface.
  • Improper video drivers, this is a software problem, see section B
  • An improperly configured or a defective video card.
