My HDS 10 will come on but not respond and keeps cycling on and off? how do I fix

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Electronics Specialist I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Electronics Specialist can help you best.

My HDS 10 comes on and will not respond to any keys and then starts cycling on and off. I have to disconnect power to get it to stay off.
