Customer Question

I have a Lowrance Hook 4X. When I first bought it and installed it, it worked great. Now I turn it on and it is very dark, starts to load up then just turns off. I have checked my battery, connections and wiring and they are all good. What do I need to do?

Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

How old is the Lowrance device in question, please?

Is the device receiving AC power as well as containing a battery?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
The unit is about 5 months old and no on the AC Power.

It is not receiving AC Power ?

Maybe I phrased the question a bit loosely. I meant to ask, Is the device supplied with power, via an AC Adapter source or other external voltage source (whatever is appropriate in the situation or setting... an automotive setting, for instance, would be a 12 V DC source or 'cigarette lighter adaptor'...) ?
