    The battery has been checked and is good. It is the same battery that powers the boat and other devices and everything else powers up ok.

    I suspected the unit is not serviceable so I am not surprised.

There is nothing you can do to these devices, they are not serviceable. The only part you can access and replace is the battery. If one is defective either you sent it back to the manufacturer (if it's younger than 5 years, after that they no longer repair them) or you junk it.

Hi Bigal,

This could be a problem with the low voltage power supply, or possibly the rechargeable battery. The power failure seems to occur once the Fishfinder draws power to initialize. I would check your warranty options and contact the reseller.

    So there is a rechargeable battery in the unit? Is it replaceable?

Hi,you will need to check two things out.

The battery and to update firmware.

You can use another battery to check if the battery is too low to power up the device.

Also it might be Corrupted and will need to update the firmware.

    How do you update the firmware?

A light comes on in the lower bottom of the screen.the transducer ticks and the unit beeps when buttons are pushed. The is nothing on the screnn.


Be sure you turn the contrast down. We had ours up high and we couldn't read anything. I brought the contrast down and we could read it even in bright sunlight.

Eagle Fisheasy No screen display and only beeps


You could have blown the transducer.....it is supposed to be in water before you turn it on. A 5 gal. bucket inside the boat would be fine for when out the water. Put the transducer in the 5gal bucket with water and try again. You may have to get another. sorry.
