    I had it happen a few times and just doing a factory reset (Surround Mode Group Selector + Tuner Mode Selector) cleared it but now even that doesn't stop it from turning off anymore.

    I have tried unplugging all the speakers and the problem remains. :(

    Now I have to find out how much it's going to cost to be repaired I guess.

Hello, logic 7 and other functions send incorrect output to speakers and overload the internal amp. If you find the correct audio output function than it won't turn off even at high volumes. Start at a low volume and obtain the best output. The one that worked for me was digital in and DTS function. I used video one as the source that well not matter any source or all sources should work but try to go digital on as many devices as you can, and hook video into HDMI alternative input devices or directly into HDMI port on the tv. Audio out from tv it's much simpler.

Most likely the unit is detecting an internal problem with it's circuitry or problem with a speaker and is shutting itself off to prevent further damage. You can try disconnecting all the speakers and trying again. If it stays on, then you probably have a bad speaker or shorted wire somewhere. Connect them one at a time to find out which one. If the unit still shuts off, then you've got internal problems that require a professional Mr Fix it.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice, good OR bad.

Good luck!

Can i replace my 330c head unit with the 525c using the same wires antennae etc lowrance

Hope its not to late, before you replace (buy a new one) call Lowrance. I have a 525 and working through some problems and they advised me that they would replace my unit for $200 no questions asked. To answer your question not 100% positive but I did see a recent question where Lowrance lost his unit and sent him the 525 as a replacement and the connections were different. I believe my 525 has a 5 pin system with one notch. Does yours have a external gps module? The 525 does!

Starter won't turn, just one tick but no action, lights are strong, no other sound. Have not checked anything yet but does this sound like a starter? Car was driving fine but did notice car harder to start...

Ok, the first thing to check is the starter, yes. This is free to do, just remove the starter and take it to Autozone. They will connect it and test it to see if it is functioning correctly. The best part is you can purchase a new one right there if it is bad. If it is not the starter let me know and I will help with further diagnosis.
