Rep Power: 10
I hadn't thought of an internal fuse - only checked the in-line one. I will check in the booklet.
The 12v power goes to the display, and through a multipair power connecter (that also carries Nav+, Nav-, and electronic compass connections, if used - I am only using the power connectors)
A separate multi-pair connector cable goes from the display to the dome, and I redid all of the wire, where it connects to the mast (dome is on mast)
To power on the display, you push the stand-by / off key, and should se some activity on the screen. Then, to power up the dome, you push the transmit / off key, on the display. Even if I had a bad connection from the display to the dome, I should still see something on the display.
I watched a friend power up teh same model, and that is how it worked - Also gives a littkle bleep sound when it powers on - Mine is totally dead.
He mentioned that a few years ago, his wouldn't come on, and a local fisherman, quickly recognized the problem - said it needed to be "jumpstarted" (his terms), pushed a couple of buttons at the same time, or something like that, and it powered up.
There is no troubleshooting section in the booklet, and I haven't found anything on-line about this issue.
Anyone heard of this before??
