Fishin' Buddy Power Issues

My Humminbird Fishin' Buddy will not turn on. What should I check?

The Fishin' Buddy MAX and Fishin' Buddy MAX DI require the FB BP2 which holds eight   "AA" size alkaline batteries for operation.  These batteries are not included.  Make sure that all eight batteries are installed by removing the battery pack and filling  both  sides with four batteries on each side of the pack.  If replacing batteries, make sure all eight batteries are replaced at the same time so that it provides the full 12 Volts.  Partially replacing the batteries could also cause a no power situation.

The Fishin' Buddy 110, 120, 130, 140c products require the FB BP1 which holds six "AA" size alkaline batteries for operation.  These batteries are not included.  Make sure that all six batteries are installed by removing the battery pack and filling both sides with three batteries on each side of the pack.  If replacing batteries, make sure all six batteries are replaced at the same time so that it provides the full 9 Volts.  Only partially replacing the batteries could also cause a no power situation.  These products should NEVER  be powered by a 12 volt source, which also means you cannot use the eight-battery pack mentioned in the section above.  Doing so will damage your unit and it will need to be returned for service.   This would not be covered under warranty.
