Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My Hercules screen is on a boat connected to a GPS / Chartplotter. It has been working fine until now - however, recently when on start up - it powers up at full strength but within 5 seconds goes into what appears to be a standby mode or night view - (ie: can barely see the picture). Any suggestions - or has it stuffed?

You will need to replace the unit. The screen has gone bad on you and can not be repaired.

Trackfish 6600 stops and starts again by himself many times in a few minutes; first screen map thouthand miles away from real boat position !


Try a factory reset - that worked for me when my Northstar Explorer 660 stopped by itself again and again. You find this reset commando by pressing MENU twice and then under Systems menu, if I remember it correctly. There is also a RAM Clear commando. This is done by holding the MENU button pressed when the GPS is switched off. Keep it pressed while switchin on the GPS, still holding the button pressed until the RAM Clear menu appears. You will probably loose all waypoints etc. by doing this so try Factory Reset as your first alternative. Good Luck! // Jonas, Sweden

If it is connected to the boat motor check the voltage that is coming from the engine and clean the battery post. This solved the screen flickering.

If you don't want to do that just call Northstar customer support and see what they suggest.
Phone (Toll-free) 1-800-628-4487 or (Direct) 603-324-2042
That will get you better support.

My screen keps on flickering


Is it connected to your boat motor if yes check your voltage from your engine and clean your baterry post, sometime you get what they call electrical sound that will disrupt a clean electrical wave for your system.

I think the transducer is down too low. Raise it up so that the center of it is in line with the bottom of the boat.

Sonar not working properly, intermittent


Generally, that indicates air bubbles in the water under the transducer. If you have a transom-mount transducer, make sure the bottom surface is level or angled slightly down. If you have a thru-hull, make sure your bottom is fairly clean in that area.

Sea talk failure


Remove all wiring from 4000 head, hook up only 12V, if seatalk fail continues, it is the head. if seatalk fail goes away, hook in instruments one by one until the bad head is found. Seatalk is 12V red, Ground Screen(bare wire) and Data yellow (pulsing voltage). good luck 847-746-0100 John Barry

With the charts page up, start by hitting the find ship softkey at the bottom of the screen.If that find the boat on the chart all is good.If not you need to check you have a GPS fix. Go to GPS screen and see you are seeing satalites.
If all is good when you hit find ship and the boat disappears again from chart while underway you will need to go into the chart setup menu and see if the screen amplifier is turned off. If off turn on.This is first place to start. Hope that helps
