Got it thanks. Is this installed in a boat, or are you trying to bench test it?

On boat

Ok, Have you made sure that the fuse in the power positive wire is still good?Is there a way for you to test the plug prongs for voltage, such as a multimeter?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Fuse is ok, could it be the map board? Does batterie percent charge have anything to do with it?
Expert:  Charles replied 1 year ago.
If you mean, could it be the main board in the unit, that is a possibility, but we need to rule everything else out first. Yes the battery charge in the boat will affect the unit. You need at least 10V to the end of the plug for the unit to work. Also try removing the Map card and see if the unit will turn on.
