Aquatronics-Boat CD player/Stereo-Model MC1000

I wondered before I buy a new boat stereo if anybody would have a clue to what is wrong with my 1 year old Auqatronic and how to repair? I used it Saturday night and was going across some 25 mph wind/chop on the lake and the boat was getting pretty wet. Now I hear these stereos are water sealed, but is it possible it got wet and fried the system? Maybe just letting it air out will correct the problem? The stereo was on and all of a sudden---nothing. Has anyone had the same problem or have the electronic knowledge to what happened?

I wanted to listen to the T-Wolves as I fish this eve. Any suggestions would be helpful!

Thanks.

Check the wiring connections, I would guess there is a fuseable link. Maybe you just blew the fuse

Sounds like a fuse got blown to me, too... if it had fried, you would've heard it...

I checked the fuses on the box last night and they all looked fine. Do you think there is a acual fuse inside the stereo itself? If so, wouldn't the stereo not work at all? I am able to dial staitions, treb/bass and adjust the volume on the face, but no sound and no light on the face plate. It has a detachable face on it. I really think it may of gotten wet from that rough ride. I have it in the house now under a fan in hopes it helps dry it out if that is the problem.

I appreciate your suggestion and will look over the stereo itself for a fuse tonight. I just called Audiovox (aquatronics) and left a message with them in hopes they call me back soon.

Augg, I hate when this **** happens!

Have a great evening! Any other suggestions?

I was just passing through and saw the name of the radio I have in my boat. I had the same thing happen last year at the lake on July 4th. We were water skiing, then after we were done, the radio stopped working. It appeared to be on but there was no sound. I thought that it had something to do with the speakers. I brought it to the dealership and they turned it on with no problems at all. It had sat unused for 2-3 days, and I wondered if maybe something got wet or there was a loose connection. It has worked just fine so far this year. I know that this isn't much help, but I thought that I'd let you know that I had the same thing happen.

Thanks Remmington,
I have a new one ordered at no charge to me, luckly it was still on warrenty. I tried it again last night and it still didn't work.

Audiovox (Aquatronics) is replacing it with a new model, The MC - 1000 has been discontinued for some reason???

If there's a reset button on it (normally on the front), I'd try that. My car stereo has a weird hait of locking up like that at times... everything looks like it's working, but no sound. Or sometimes no buttons work, so you're stuck with the station, CD or whatever at times.. It's happened three times to it, and it's some kind of computer glitch.. something gets stuck in whatever state it was in, and locks up the whole thing. YOu may want to look at that, too.
OR, some stereos have a fuse on the back of the stereo, or on the power wire...

On some of those with detachable faces, there is a little button that helps push the face off the unit. Check to make sure that is moving smoothly, and that it goes in all the way.

I will try those suggestions as well before I make my exchange next Wednesday. I think I have tried every buttom on the stereo, but with look for the reset and the detachable face button.

Thanks!

      Toddrun, You are correct. It seems as if it’s still larvea down there in big bay. Have seen very few , if any mayflies in the air.

      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.

      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????   
    • Reid Saarela
      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy!

      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.

      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.
