This past weekend while fishing I hit a large wave that caused the boat to slam down hard. My 596c HD DI went blank and been unable to get it to turn on. This has happened on other occasions and by turning off the boat power, wait a few seconds then turn power back on the unit would come on and function noirmal. ASny sughgetions?
JA: Sometimes boat issues seem like they'll be really complicated, but end up being easy to fix. The Marine Electronics Specialist I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else important you think the Marine Electronics Specialist should know?
