1. Anyone a hummingbird electronics expert? I have a hummingbird 899 CI HD SI. Took the boat out this morning and hooked up the graph and it powered up as normal ...more and the hummingbird image appeared on the screen and that's all that happened it never loaded to the gps/fish finder screen. Tried powering down and up several times with the same results.... any ideas what to do?? Thanks

    1. I also pinched a transducer cable on my trolling motor. this caused the same thing to happen. if all else fails unplug the transducer and try to boot it up. if that ...more was the problem it should boot up in simulation mode.
    2. Thanks Russell I will try pulling my map card and cleaning all my connections and see if that hopefully fixes it. I don't have a spare $800 laying around to ...more replace it so if that don't fix it I will be mailing it back to Humminbird to see if they can help!! Lol
    3. i also had one time that I had to remove the lakemaster card then power it up. after that I could use the card again.
    4. both of my hummingbird helix's do this occasionally.
      powering down does not fix it. I have to physically disconnect the power plug and let it sit for a couple ...more minutes. after that it powers up normally. hope this helps

      And I'm sorry to hear about your buddy BRIAN... That is one thing that I know about!! I have lost 5 really good friends sense middle school... And I know ...more the struggle is hard buddy.. they say it gets easier as the years go on.. But that to me don't seem to be true..

    1. Jimbo Harwood 0
      That's awesome!!
    2. Yes it eats really good but doesn't freeze well. The season is March 15- April 31 here so my freezer is usually down to a couple bags of fish at that point ...more in the year and it's time to just clean one of these pigs up and have all the friends and family over and fry it all up!!!
