898 hot on right side and power button
« on: October 08, 2015, 06:42:42 PM »
I have only snapshots from HummViewer, though they appear exactly as seen on the water.  There is a constant difference between left and right SI views when all seems flat bottom and nothing blocking the transducer. Is my transducer going, since these are midrange setting views?  Read something in forum about 800 being hot but these are 455.  My 800 appears very hot when jumping from 455 to 800.  Serial #11010702-0097

Also, this device has had a weird power button (finicky shutdown), and now it will not turn on.  Recently, it was turning on and going right to shutdown with no other buttons workable. Argh.

That looks like a xducer or transmitter problem ...

If you don't have access to another HB unit or HB xducer to crosstest with ... Call HB ...
