Humminbird 343c will power down on its own


Hi!
If the unit shuts off on its own, firstly check your power supply. I keep seeing customers running their ssounders from a small, portable battery configuration that doesn't put out the correct voltage...mostly seen with AA size batteries being rated at 1.2 or 1.3 volts (8 batteries times 1.2 volts is only 9.6 volts).
If the power supply is not the issue then I would say the internal power circuit is suspect...this can only be repaired by a competent repair person who knows how and what they are doing. If you open the unit up, you'll not only void the warranty, you run the risk of killing the entire unit from static shock.
Best of luck in your repair!

Hello! Our Raymarine A65 will not start up. It starts a boot process but does not show "Raymarine A65" on the display and no chart is displayed as it usually does. Regards Odd


Probably a bad printed circuit board, just had to send mine in to have it repaired. When I hit the power button, I did hear a beep, but then nothing displayed. Mine was still under warrenty, so don't know the repair cost if yours is not.

Garmin fishfinder 160 blue . no powerup


I have a 160 blue also, and this morning I had the same problem. I called tech support while I was out on the water but no help. When I got home I double checked my connections on the battery minder/selector and the fuse panel. My GPS worked fine but the FF only beeped, like it had low power and the display wouldnt come up. It came up once for about a second and then faded earlier on the water. I pulled the power and ground connections from the fuse block and put them directly on the battery, it came right up. I now run the FF wired straight to the single battery and the GPS and other items on my other battery.

Hope it helps.

My garmin nuvi 205 quit talking. volume is at 100% and not on mute. beep sounds work but when in route i have no next turn or direction sounds. screen map does work.


I have a 750. I went to settings, language and restored the defaults. The Voice was blank when I went to that screen. I am not sure if the 205 has the language setup or not, but this should solve other Garmin problems. And as a bonus, if you want to solve the problems with the US, Fire Congress check out http://FireCongress.org

Won't turn on...hear the beep, and screen works.


Exact same problem for me on the exact same day (2-sep) as well - freaky! Unit was out of battery and I charged it but that was the last time I managed to get it working - charging it now to see if it makes any diff. Actually with mine I hear the beep and the initial splash screen shows for about 1 sec and then that's it - it seems to go off again. I think it's something to do with the battery as it seems to work when connected to the charger - not a whole lot of good to me!

My 176c is not responding


get the download (updater from garmin website , download it then hook up 176c to computer and run file .if it doesnt go thru hit power and try again if you get the screen under a good light so you can see it will say downloading when this is done your screen will be back to normal .I dont remember if the unit is on when it beeps or off .try both ways if it doesnt work replace batteries as even though your not seeing the screen the unit is still on like i said ; fresh batts and try it and if it doesnt work hold down power key for a second or two and try again. good luck PS garmin doesnt know this i figured it out myself ...bob
