Hi!
Sorry to say it sounds like you will need to replace the screen assembly which is about a $70 repair or so.

Is it any battery inside the Humminbird 525 fishfinder unit ?


No, the only battery operated ones are the Piranha portables. Having said that, there might be a small CMOS battery purely to hold saved information like tracks and waypoints.

I have a Humminbird fishfinder 525. It goes directly in simulation mode and says: No svinger connected... What could be the problem?


If the transducer is disconnected, it will automatically go into Demo Mode.

If you do have the transducer connected, but the boat isn't in the water, the unit knows there is no water and after a few seconds, switches to Demo mode.

Not sure what a 'svinger' is, but if you need more help, just ask. I can also edit the message and change 'svinger' to something else.

I have had both the Humminbird 798 and also the 1198HD. They are great pieces of kit on the water. The 525 is entry level.

I have Humminbird 525 fish finder. I have power to the mount but no display on the screen.


If you have someone that has the same or simular unit just slide there control head to the base just to make sure you have enough voltage and current to power the unit. If the other unit powers up then there is a problem with the control head. Then you will need to call customer service to get it resolved.

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.

Turns off


The first thing you need to check is if you have sufficient power going to the fishfinder. Take a multimeter and measure the dc voltage going to the display when the unit is off and also on. If this is below 12 vdc this is your problem. You will need to check for loose connections and possibly replace your battery.

If the voltage is good then the problem lies within the display. Unfortunately, you would have to contact Humminbird directly to return the display for repair or purchase a new fishfinder.

Gain failure


If you are 'testing' the unit by holding the right button and pressing power, the pmax units really don’t work with the internal test. What you are seeing in the test is what th humminbird factory computer test used to test it. That is really not intended to be used outside of the plant. If it works fine in normal mode then I would say that the unit is fine.
Best of luck!
