I have a eagle fish easy 240 it won't power on

1.Check the online fuse on your unit and be sure it is still intact.
2.Look at the connector on the back of the unit and be sure there are no bent pins.
3. Check the battery voltage and verify it's reading 12 volts or more.
4. Check the voltage at the connector to be sure you are getting power to the unit.
5. If you've accomplished all of this and there is power to your unit and it still won't turn on then it's time to invest in a new unit.

Eagle Tech Consus Power adapter requirements

IF you have the Eagle Consus T ET-CSTSIU2-BK you must mean one of these (pictured). Check the exact model number of the units in the videos compared to the one you have. 3.5" hard drives need 0V (ground, earth), +5V and +12V which may be on the pins in a multipin connector in some external adapters or less commonly provided internally a single from dc or even ac supply. Further, your supply connector may not have multipins but be a multi-concentric ring type with matching socket (similar to a stereo plug). I suggest you try (discussing the matter with) Eagle support or as outside chance buying another psu of the correct type from Amazon Newegg (who have sold out of this product) or ebay for example.

Has power to unit but will not turn on

Some new fish finders are like the new cell phones, you've got to press and hold the power button a few seconds. Try about 5 sec.

Do I plug in BOTH the 20+4 ATX power connector AND the 8 pin 12V connector on a gigbyte MB (MA790GPT-UD3h)?


You only need to plug the 20+4 ATX power connector and how about the 8 pin 12V connector? Well that is use only for legacy type of motherboard that use to require it.

Hope it helps..

Thanks for reaching Fixya
