Question about Humminbird 525 Fishfinder

1 Answer

Humminbird 525 concerns , I bought a new 525 last year and have never got it to work properly . It will cut out and read 1 ft of water intermittently . I have tried a different 525 head and it reads the same as the first one . I have tried another transducer and installed it on the inside of the haul , it only change the water temp due to it,s not in the water . I have ran new wires directly to one of my batteries . i have( 2 8d 12v batteries and 2 24 series 12v batteries) on board . I have ran its wiring on the other side of the boat , and it still acts up . note the longer i use it the more it acts up and the longer it takes before it will read correct dept again. its seems to work a little longer if i use it in manual mode . also the temperature seem to read correct all the time

Is the head unit mounted near a compass, other GPS or antenna? This seems like a classic magnetic interference. Since the heads were swapped and it still functioned the same. Has the transducer been mounted with the template provided? If not, this could also compound the issue.

Is it any battery inside the Humminbird 525 fishfinder unit ?


No, the only battery operated ones are the Piranha portables. Having said that, there might be a small CMOS battery purely to hold saved information like tracks and waypoints.

I have a Humminbird fishfinder 525. It goes directly in simulation mode and says: No svinger connected... What could be the problem?


If the transducer is disconnected, it will automatically go into Demo Mode.

If you do have the transducer connected, but the boat isn't in the water, the unit knows there is no water and after a few seconds, switches to Demo mode.

Not sure what a 'svinger' is, but if you need more help, just ask. I can also edit the message and change 'svinger' to something else.

I have had both the Humminbird 798 and also the 1198HD. They are great pieces of kit on the water. The 525 is entry level.

I've purchased an Eagle 320 fishfinder 2 years ago and I've had to replace my transducer twice. Every time I'm out fishing lakers in 50 to 100 feet of water, I keep loosing the bottom mark and...


I have never heard of Eagle Fishfinders, but I would be inclined to package it up and send it back to them for checking under warranty, with a fault that should never happen. The brand leaders are Lowrance and Humminbird, with Garmin in 3rd place.

I have a Humminbird 998HD with Side Imaging. I had a 798SI before that and never a problem. the 998 cost me nearly 2 grand Canadian and is used on Lake Ontario, twice a week every week from May to October, and has been faultless. The 798 was used from 2008 to 2014 and also faultless. I think you have a 'Friday Special'.

I have Humminbird 525 fish finder. I have power to the mount but no display on the screen.


If you have someone that has the same or simular unit just slide there control head to the base just to make sure you have enough voltage and current to power the unit. If the other unit powers up then there is a problem with the control head. Then you will need to call customer service to get it resolved.

Hi. Just wondering how should the transducer for my humminbird 525 fish finder/sounder be installed correctly? Thanks


You can take a picture of the transom of your boat and email it to Humminbird and they will email it back to you where the transducer should be mounted at. Our email address is service@humminbird.com.

Hi!
Sorry to say it sounds like you will need to replace the screen assembly which is about a $70 repair or so.
