Hello All,

I am a utility contractor in Portland Oregon. My trucks all have the 3000T and this is an oh so common problem. I found an electronics store here in Oregon called Frys Electronics. To repair the DC plug you will need to replace it with a new one. It is a 1.3mm dc port/jack and if soldering it you will need to have a min. of a 40 watt soldering iron and need to order a narrow long tiped replacement tip for the iron. You can find all your parts needed at or I can FWD you all the info. Oh the ground strap is reuseable and I have not been able to find a replacement and Megellan sucks at selling their parts. There is also an awsome bunch of guys that have been very helpful @ NORVAC in Tigard OR. I wish you all luck.

SOURCE: Wiring Diagram for Ruud Heat Pump

Unfortunately, the wiring diagrams for heat pumps are not so easy to come up with. The outdoor unit will have its own diagram, but may not include the indoor air handler and will probably not include the thermostat. That said, the orange wire is commonly run from the thermostat to the reversing valve in the outdoor unit. This wire is usually not connected to the indoor airhandler. The orange wire is usually used in a unit that has the reversing valve energized in cool. Ruud, however has its reversing valve energized in heat. Probably not useful but maybe helpful

Hi - I have a Garmin GPS 126 in bits on my desk ready for a new cable as the socket in the back has some broken pins.

Also refer to the Garmin GPS to PC Wiring Instructions here on the Garmin site:

The internal 8 pin white connector on to the back of the circuit board is as follows:

1 Red Positive
2 Black Negative
3 Yellow Data Out
4 Green Data In
5 not used
6 not used
7 White Alarm

All the best, Tony at KiwiGPS, New Zealand

I have a Garmin 2010c on my boat and turns off every 10mins.. what can be the problem?

Bad connection or a fault to the unit.

Do you have it on a separate battery? It is best if they are, or connect direct to the starting battery, not connected via power that you find in the console or on a power bar.

Make sure you are using good quality copper stranded wire of the correct gauge with soldered or properly crimped connectors. I think it is 18 gauge, but your installation instructions will guide you. Also mentions 24 AWG. Manual states;

There are two wiring diagrams provided for you convenience. The first is a simple hook-up showing the GPSMAP 2006/2010 (using the 18-
pin wiring harness), the GPS 17 and the alarm circuit. The Alarm does not have to be wired for the unit to function. The second is a complete
wiring diagram showing the GPSMAP 2006/2010 (using the 18-pin wiring harness) interfacing with a variety of different equipment. The extra
5-pin wiring harness that came with the unit is intended for future interfacing features and does not require connection. Refer to the wiring
diagram that will best suite your needs. Make sure that all connections are good. For extra lengths of wire, 24
AWG (unless otherwise noted on
wiring diagram), shielded, twisted-pair wiring is recommended. We advise soldering all connections and sealing the connection with heat shrink
tubing. If you experience difficulty wiring the unit, please contact an installation professional in your area.

Make sure the connections are good on the rear of the unit including plugs to the transducer. You can coat with a little Vaseline which his electrically conductive.

States the unit is susceptible to RFI and should be 3 feet away from a radio antennae.

Finally, make sure the inline fuse and connections to it are good.

If all that seems good, the first thing to do is swap out the transducer for a new one. Still does it? Send the unit for repair.

Does it also do it at rest in the marina, or do you trailer the boat?

I have a Humminbird 998 HD Si.

How to install wiring

Start at the transducer, mount it then pull the transducer wiring forward using a wire snake. At the same time pull forward 14ga wire to attach to your power leads.
on most boats I've done this process takes from 90 minutes to 3 hours.
The transducer and head unit are easy to put on. Getting wire from point A to point B is the time consuming part.
Once you have your wires pulled forward route them to your head unit at your console. Drilling of access holes may be required.

Connect power, plug in the transducer line.
Black to negative at the battery, red to positive, don't forget to put in the in line fuse included in your box.

Good luck.

I want to see the schematic diagram of humminbird fish finder transducer, my fishfinder won't operate. if i plug another unit of transducer, the my fishfinder operates normally.

Hi Greg and Ernesto:
Re-stating the obvious, your transducer is not working but you know that the sounder is.
I would start by checking to see if your transducer works on a different sounder. That's just a double check to confirm that it really is not working.
Then I'd try to isolate the problem:
- Plug (couold be corroded or damaged)
- wire (could be broken)
- Transducer (could be defective)
Since these are sealed units, I'd be checking with the supplier to try to find a replacement. Hopefully they are not too expensive, and time spent fishing is better than trying to maybe save a few dollars, especially if you're taking out charters.
Best of luck.

One of the drum pads is disconnected. when i touch the wires it still makes a sound, but i can't seem to refit the pad into its place and it still functon

You might try taking the pad apart to see if the piezo transducer has come loose or if there is a bad connection at the transducer or the jack.
