A lot of TVs are having their power boards go bad due to a poor brand of capacitor (CapXon usually).

If small problems are noticed with the tv, the solution is to replace the capacitors. However, once the TV gets to the point where there is no power at all any more (not even a stand-by light) then the power supply has to be replaced.

Visit Viewsonic's website or call your local Viewsonic repair shop to get a price on this board. They are usually under $100.

A great way to test a PSU is to use a PSU Tester. The device allows you to see if all the circuits are getting power and it only requires you to plug it in to power. This allows the ability to test it safe and reliably without accidentally damaging hardware. Below is a link to a tester.

Have you checked your monitor? Try your monitor on another PC and check it is OK. Once you change the MB battery you effectively "Kill" the PC, as all the settings in the BIOS are removed and must be reprogrammed. You must enter the BIOS, and select "Default" setup and then reboot, you must do this regardless of what else is done first.(A bit hard when you can't see anything" You say... "tried different power switch and ribbon cable connector" (sic) exactly what "Ribbon cable/Power switch"? Anyway as said check monitor, if it is OK, we will proceed from there, then, you must check your video card, test it in another machine, if possible, to see if thats OK, if it is OK, then it is now likely that you may have a Mother board problem. If you can, try another Video card to see if you get Video on screen. see we need to establish "Known Good" items, once we know whats what, we can then go on. Now if any of these things tested are faulty, Monitor, Video card, obviously replace them, however IF they are NOT faulty, as related it may be the Motherboard, Remove the RAM, and see if anything is on screen? If yes, replace RAM, If still NO, then take any cards out, and check, if then OK, replace cards one by one until you get to the one that stops it, there is your problem, replace it. All we are trying to do is get anything on the screen, if we do, then you must redo the BIOS, as related before. Now if you get it going it still may not boot through to windows desktop, if this is the case, after you boot press F8 and select safe mode, when you get asked if you want safe mode or system restore, choose system restore and choose a date before you had a problem that should get you back. You just have to logically work through, until you find the faulty "bit" and replace it.

read the book that came with it you got to understand how it works and know how to set your unit before you can understand how it works and what you need to do to make it work and to get to what settings you want ..a fish finder is like a computer you got to program it to your likings .. I have a hd 10 structure scan on mine .. .now that's a nightmare to set but the book tells you everything you need to do and how to do it and how to get what your looking for and how to get to it

I have tried all the suggested procedures with no sucess. I think it is the power switch sticking still and as requested from the beginning would like help in trying to bypass it. One of the experts...


Hello,

First of all I myself am not the expert who you worked with prior and you said you do not want to pay him until this is solved. I am doing this for free, because you did not of course click on one of my ads for me to get paid. That link for me if you want to check out is. http://beta.fixya.com/users/mc1bean

However I will try and help you by giving you some major advice.... First of all not a good idea at all to by pass the power switch, this can cause other electronic damage and especially with fish finders there based on low pulsate waves and could get major interference. What i would do if switch is sticking its mostly caused from dirt and oxidation especially if around salt water and if unit is not stored proper during off season or if is turned off for long periods. Best thing to do it use some electronical spay made for lubrication of electronics, which could help free up your switch and contacts might restore themselves. Never a good idea to bypass a main power supply to unit. Worse case , i would take it into local electronic shop that deals with your type of units and they can fix switch. I am sure it is going to be corrosion built up or contacts just need cleaning. Here is also a link to your unit, and is a download of manual in pdf form to view or download.

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.

Units flashes when turned on --won't stop


5_5_2012_6_29_36_pm.jpg
Here's my LMS 332c circuit board. I'm showing where the power source is on the lower right, and where I believe the first two ribbon cables that lead to the power switch on the front panel (upper left). Can anyone tell me how to disable the internal power switch and where? I want to install external switch and bypass the internal. I can solder and not afraid to try since this unit is out of warranty and is not functional as is with powering on/off and screen flashing randomly. Thanks!

Won't power up


Make sure the power is good, and the power connections are clean. Check fuses and connections. You can even get a volt meter, unplug the power cable and test for 12VDC across the two bigger female contacts on the power cable connecter. If you are getting 12VDC, then the LMS-520 is bad. If you are not getting 12VDC, then you have a bad power supply, connection, or cable.

If you more then battery connect the fish finder to the second battery.
Or if the Depth finder is connected through the acc. on the boat. The power is being cut off be fore the starter is engaged. By pass this and connect through a correct size fuse.

Turning on my Lowrance LCX 111HD fish locator creates static with my ICOM M502 VHF Marine radio.


Hello LJones0455. From your detailed attempts there are few options. Position the transducers one foward one aft. Connect the negitives of the battiers to the boat still route both positive & negitive wiring to all devices. Check the continunity of your transducers include flexing while ohming. Let me know of the results.

Installing an old used lowrance fish finder


I don't think your old fish finder is the LMS-332C GPS Receiver listed above in the description. You don't need the speed wheel for the fish finder to function just the transducer and transducer mount. You should mount that on the back of the boat towards the center but not too close to the motor and not too close to the side of the board. Don't let it hand below the level of the boat. That should keep it from getting hit by the trailer or dragging on the bottom. Try to make it as level as possible. The green and white wires may be for the speed wheel but i'd need a model number for clarification. Hope this helps.
