Customer Question
I have a new...

I have a new Elite 9 TI that has been working ok but recently fails on starting up. When you press the ON button the screen logo lights up, blinks once and then stays on for about 20 seconds and then blanks out You can see the logo in the background for another few seconds and then blank screen. I thought it may have been a flat battery but it is now fully charged so I am a bit lost. Hope you can help

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Marine Electronics Specialist should know?

It has worked fine. Had this problem before Christmas and it corrected itself but now it won't boot up
