Problem with eagle fishelite 500c

My unit is mounted in the console of my Triton bass boat, all the cables are behind the dash.Just yestersay the unit started turning itself on and blinking and beeping nonstop until you manually turn it off, then it turns itself right back on again and starts flashing and beeping again. It is flashing the same display you would get when turni ng the device on, "do not rely on this product for navigation bla, bla, bla...."

I had to remove the console and unplug the unit for it to stop. When manually turning it on the unit works fine.

Thank you

SOURCE: No back lighting and screen blinks. Purchased exactly 2 yrs ago

I have had simialr display issues, were the screen is washed out and ghosting, unable to read it during the day, however night time I can just make some things out. 9mth old unit, still under warranty, but very dissapointing unit as I think the repair will only buy me a few months. Wont touch Lowrance or Eagle.

If you do not have the most current software upgrade, that may be the problem. Go to www.eaglenav.com. If a more current software is available, download per their instructions. Worth a try. That unit should display LakeMaster digital chars.

Can I replace my display and which web site can I buy one.


Well, You might do a Websearch for Eagle products and find Customer Service. I believe you may have a Back-Light bulb which is burned out. If so, then you may be able to just switch the bulb and not replace screen.
You would probably be able to take apart the case and shine a flashlight on the backside of the screen and see something if the unit was plugged in and reporting your GPS readings. Some of the screens are semi-transparent and what you see may show you that all you need is to fix the light source.

I getting ready to order a 1197 unit. The box states that it has the in dash mounts. Do you know if the unit comes with the knobs & u bracket to mount unit on side of concol? Thanks


It does come with everything in the box you need to rig your boat. If you are going to rig it on a fiberglass boat I would mount the Side Imaging transducer right under the jackplate and make sure you can see from side to side without anything blocking it on either side of the transducer. Then I would epoxy a transducer (XP 9 20) in the hull of the for high speed readings and then use a Y cable (AS SIDB Y) to tie the 2 transducer together.

Marine electronics should never be powered through an ignition switch. A sudden drop in voltage will cause it to shut off. If your boat is powered by a four stroke outboard it probably is not generating enough current to meet the demands of the engine and the electronics. Four stroke outboards generally have to run at high rpms to generate enough current to charge the battery. Old or poorly maintained batteries could also contribute to your problem.
