Garmin 240 Problem

7 posts in this topic

I have a garmin 24O and it was woring fine, now when I hit the power button nothing comes on. Seams like its not getting juice or something. It did this before and then started working again,so im not sure what the problem is.

I have the same unit and occasionally the big plug on the back will loosen up, did you check that and the fuse??

I don't have the problem that you have, but I do have it flash on and off. And if I move the power cord, it will go out completely. Does this sound like a power plug-in problem or maybe the inline-fuse is shot? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Another possibility is the fuseholder itself... the fuseholder they put on these was pretty low quality... Make sure you are getting a good connection across the fuse.

where is the fuse located? I don't think there is one on this one. I had it working eariler this year and then is just stopped working. so it must be some kind of power connection problem.

Thanks for the help guys

On mine, there is an in-line fuse holder near the battery end of the cable. I believe it was a yellow push together type.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
