SOURCE: Unit is switching to battery power for now reason.

Any UPS monitors the incoming AC level to determine if it is needed or not.  I think the APC unit doesn't know any more when it is needed; it's sick.

sounds like the belt is loose. if it has a tensioner check and or replace it, if not tighten the belt. or the alternator tests ok but is actually not working at low rpm. or the battery is shorted. electricity is tricky

SOURCE: Battery and Alternator Good. Alternator not working. HELP!!!

djn, I believe you have some accessory that is on when the key is in the off position.
Check to make certain glove box light is not on when the glove box door is closed and the trunk light is not on.
If you have an aftermarket radio or any added accessories make sure they are not wired direct to battery voltage.
If all that checks out, disconnect the battery negative and connect a test light between the battery and battery cable. If the light is on you have a drain in the electrical system. Leave the light connected and begin removing 1 fuse at a time until the light goes out, that will tell you what component or circuit is draining the battery.
Last resort, you may have an alternator drawing the battery down.
Good luck and let me know.

How do i get the fish on the screen to look like fish

Your unit should have a setting labeled "FISH ID" turn this setting on and you will see fish shaped icons instead of arches on your screen. You may also see numbers by these icons. Those numbers represent the depth of the fish at that moment.
Be forewarned that at times your unit will show the fish icons when there aren't actually any fish below the boat. Hope this helps.

If you know someone who has the same type unit, you could try your unit screen (control head) on their hookup to see if you obtain the same results. If so, there could be a problem with the unit and it would need to be shipped back to our factory for a service test. If you do know know anyone with the similar unit, please contact me at the following email address and I will send you a transducer to test with the unit.

I have the ink system failure error and error Oxct18a0206 I was going to try and fix it and it somewhere it said that it could be because the ink cartridges are low. How do you see what level they are at...


Yes, The error is caused by air in the ink feed tubes which happens when the ink in the cartridges runs out or you use an improperly filled cartridge. We have a step by step repair guide posted on our web site at:
There is not any easy way to determine the level of ink in the cartridges but you will need to use full cartridges when you do the air purge procedure needed to clear the error.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Magellan RoadMate won't compute if connected to power

unplug the charger, then turn the 1200 on, once its fully booted, hold the power button for 15 seconds..the screen will go blank after a few seconds, but continue to hold it for 15 seconds.

now, with the charger plugged in and unit off, press and hold the power button for upto 7 seconds or till it starts.

if that fails, let me know and i can tell you something else to do.
