Did you check the ground side of the connection? If that checks out there should be a fuse in the unit. You should look at the manual if you have it. If this unit is new to you and the boat sometimes the keypads require you to hold the "on" button in for a bit of time to power up.

Another possibility is the contrast controls are turned to the extreme and you are actually working, but dimmed out. You might want to unplug the transducer and see if the screen does anything.

You would need better testing equipment than the average person has to check frequencies. A radio shop may be able to help if you can not exchange this nonworking unit.

My hummingbird 175 does not show fish contacts


Obviously your hummingbird has stopped humming.
Check the most obvious things first. Power to the unit. Correct voltage at unit (no volt drop). Does the main box power up and appear to function OK. Then Check the Transponder connections. Clean with contact cleaner or methylated spirits & dry. Check for transponder cable damage. Try connecting a replacement transponder. Swapping parts to a certain what is working and what isn't. If you don't have parts then it will have to go to a dealer that does.
Good Luck

Sunspot on screen humminbird matrix 27 can it fix ?


No, typically with led matrix screens, it is near impossible to find someone to replace screen for cheaper than new unit. Same goes for tvs and computers, etc. Also, and not to be rude but rather if you are faced with buying another unit, do not buy Hummingbird. They are a very cheap quality for not much less money. Best bet will be either Furuno or Garmin. Good luck!

I have a hummingbird matrix 67 gps chartplotter fish finder. It developed a problem with the screen. The outer edges are legible, but the center is damaged. Is it worth repairing. Are there any other...


Hummingbird will refurbish that one for around 150US dollars, better then 500+ for a new one. If the screen is subjected to direct sunlight and heats up it can go out. This is why they discontinued the 67 model and replaced it with the 767.
