Question about Garmin GPS

1 Answer

When I turn on my garmin fishfinder 240 I get 2 beeps and then 5 beeps and nothing shows on the screen. The unit has only approx. 26 hrs of use over 2.5 years. I received it for Christmas then did not use it for 9 months put it back in the box the way it came and did not use it for 2 yrs, The second day of use after approx. 3.5 hs the day before it came on and then the screen went blank. Thank you for the help. All I get from garmin is send us 150.00 dollars and the unit and we will look at it. Thomas P. Pinten Slidell La.

Hello Thomas. Let's begin by resetting it to factory settings. To do this, turn it on and then gently pry off the thin frame around the screen with your your finger nail. Under that thin frame you will find a reset button. Push it and then try to start it up. It should work. If not, there is no more you can do at home. For 150., I recommend replacement as opposed to repair since your maps are also 2.5 yrs. old. J.

No transducer


Make sure the plug that gives this unit power is secure. Also I think this device has a 2ft branch that goes to the ducer. Make sure that's right too

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.

Upgrading the system software of your GPSMAP 545s will most likely fix your freezing up problem.
