Question about Northstar GPS

1 Answer

My Northstar 951xd was worling fine until today. When I turned it on it had "GPS communication failed". I tried everyjthing I knew and nothing worked. I went to the service information which normally has software versions, beacon self test, etc, and it only showed the main board software version. Everything else is blank, which is not what was there previuosly. Any suggestions.

It seems the GPS software in your device is corrupted.
If you have the installation Disk of GPS then reset the GPS with factory settings and everything will work just fine again.

Thanks

How do I fix screen on Northstar 951xd?


I have the same problem and am about to buy a display from Mavin.com. This is on the product page for the display:

**Note that this is not a direct replacement for the Northstar,but with some soldering it can be made to work.It is the same screen as used in the NorthStar units, it hasdifferent connectors. What this means to you is that youwill need to solder the connections directly to this board.Once connected, it works just fine.

Can you repair the finish on the screen, its all blotchy


Two things to try:

You can take the screws out of the back of the unit to get to the back of the screen. On 951XDs the outer screen is just a protective cover for the actual LCD and its typically glued onto the front cover with an adhesive.
Once you isolated the screen away from the rest of the electronics then you can clean it with "Novus 1, 2, 3 Kit Plastic Polish and Scratch Remover" (find on Amazon).
The plastic used for the cover of the 961XDs are typically alcohol resistant, the chances are that someone has used acetone instead!

TomTom Go730 worked great yesterday, is a brick today. Battery charged, reset per TT website instructions, nothing. Any suggestions?


not much to do with that unit, check with a volt meter to verify that power is present at the plug cord charging, if all your efforts fail and the unit is dead your trouble is in the unit itself, this unit is not serviceable by any one other than one with knowledge and equipment to repair this unit, check for warranty if not obtain a new one,,,?Sorry

I have a Northstar 6000i that will not display the tide track information. It has for 3 years,and now has a message stating that it can't display the information for the current date.


Probably the data didn't go past 2010. I have a Northstar 951XD, and first time out this year, no more tide track data - my manual says it only went fron 1994 - 2010. So how to get updates?

Burnt out LCD B&W screen on Northstar 951X GPS.


Electro Mavin (mavin.com) sell replacement new unused Optrex DMF-50174 Displays units for $25.00. Order one.
Take small screws out of the back of the Northstar 951x and carefully remove the cover, disconnect the old display unit (just one ribbon, one power connector and two screws).
Replace the display with the new one.
Replace cover and screws.
Now take your loved ones on a small holiday with the money you just saved yourself!
