1198CX SI screen flickering and changes colors
« on: July 17, 2018, 07:00:55 PM »
Hey

Have determined that my 1198 power connection in the back of my 1198 has an issue. The screen flickers and changes colours. I have two units and have tested both at the helm and bow and the one unit does the same thing on either connection in my boat. Was wondering if anyone has had this issue and a possible fix. When I wiggle the power cable on the back of the unit the problem goes away but only temporarily. Not sure if I should remove the back panel and see if something is lose , or if there is a way to make the connection more snug so that the connecting pins don’t move inside the power port on the back of the unit. Thanks for any help. Monks

It is possible the wire connections inside have vibrated loose  ... Most are snap clip type connections  ...

Be mindful to get the seal correct when reassembling the cabinet halves  ...
