    hi mike,

    my unit is not portable. it runs on 12v and has both the transducer cable and the power cable. i've been careful to plug the power correctly, thus, i've followed the troubleshooting for the specific problem.

    once the same thing happened to my garmin 198, and the thing was that someone had messed around with the screen's brightness....

    however, with the hb, there's no sign of life. i even tried out running it through the tester to se if the voltage dropped below 12v during power on... but no, powerwise it's all green light.

    so i'm starting to believe that this is a factory problem, that it is simply broken. however, someone always seems to have had the same problem and found the solution to it. jejeje.


    thanks.

    rodolfo.

Hi!
If your 220 is in portable configuration (runs on 8 'AA' batteries) make sure that the batteries are 1.5 volts and not 1.2 or 1.3 volts. (1.2V times 8 batteries is only 9.6V)
Also check the battery compartment as we see leakage from some batteries which corrodes the connector plates that the batteries hook up to.
One more thing...check to see that the power cord is plugged into the unit with the notch in the plug pointing UP. The rubber plug housing on the sounder allows the cord to be plugged in backwards if it's forced a litlle bit.
Best of luck!
Mike

    ..and of course the warranty is done too. *just in time*....it figures, huh?

    I have heard that Humminbird can and does grant 'special case' scenarios, but you'd have to do the jump thru hoops thing I'm sure ;)

    Best of luck

I've purchased an Eagle 320 fishfinder 2 years ago and I've had to replace my transducer twice. Every time I'm out fishing lakers in 50 to 100 feet of water, I keep loosing the bottom mark and...


I have never heard of Eagle Fishfinders, but I would be inclined to package it up and send it back to them for checking under warranty, with a fault that should never happen. The brand leaders are Lowrance and Humminbird, with Garmin in 3rd place.

I have a Humminbird 998HD with Side Imaging. I had a 798SI before that and never a problem. the 998 cost me nearly 2 grand Canadian and is used on Lake Ontario, twice a week every week from May to October, and has been faultless. The 798 was used from 2008 to 2014 and also faultless. I think you have a 'Friday Special'.

Don,

We would recommend that you replace the transducer (if you want to keep the transducer inside the hull you may use the
XP 9 20 T with temperature and you can use epoxy to mount the transducer) If you want to keep in the compartment you have created you may want to just put water in the compartment with the transducer so its not shooting through the air.

If you have any other questions please email customer service at service@humminbird.com

Thank you,

Bought a new vector maxxsst 1200 watt inverter


Inverter run on batteries sir, and if these batteries are not charged, the run time {the number of hours it will work} reduces.
S0, you will need to connect the inverter to a power source.Theses will allow your batteries to be charged and enable it to run for a long period of time.
Make sure your batteries are still OK.i.e working properly

Humminbird 240 won't start


Hi!
If your unit is a portable unit (takes 8 'AA' batteries), make sure that the batteries say 1.5 volts and not 1.2 or 1.3 volts as these won't have the right amount of power.
If not, make sure that the power cable (where it plugs into the sounder) is installed with the small notch pointed towards the top.
Best of luck!
