20 Most Recent Humminbird 161 Gps Fish Finder Combo Questions & Answers

I don't have the same model but the same issue before the cable from the sonar was frade some and so it wasn't sending a good signal to the box so it just said loading I had to replace the sonar and then it worked fine

It should work right out of the box. It may have trouble picking up satellites, especially if you are testing it inside your house. A lower-end unit like this isn't going to have as powerful an antenna as more expensive models, so be sure you are outside, with a clear path to outer space and it should work!

Hope this helps.

The first thing you need to check is if you have sufficient power going to the fishfinder. Take a multimeter and measure the dc voltage going to the display when the unit is off and also on. If this is below 12 vdc this is your problem. You will need to check for loose connections and possibly replace your battery.

If the voltage is good then the problem lies within the display. Unfortunately, you would have to contact Humminbird directly to return the display for repair or purchase a new fishfinder.

You cant change time since is gps controlled. All you can do is to choose correct time zone For example NY should be GMT -5 hrs
