I have a humminbird 898 that just quite working on me the other day. It is just out of warranty and Humminbird customer service said it would be 350 dollars just for them to look at it. Anyone on here work on humminbird electronics?

Thanks. I've heard that "shut-up-and-fish" deals with electronics? I didn't know if he fixes them or just sells them. Does anyone know?

I do not break them open and make repairs. That will be a Humminbird situation. I can trouble shoot the matter to see if it is something simple like a connection or a bent or missing pin ect.....

Sometimes it is the simplest of things and then sometimes it is just time to upgrade.

Unless it has changed that $350 is the flat rate repair fee, not just to look at it.

I sent a 898 in and they went through it for $65. Whats up with that $350 ??? I would double check that price. Sounds funny to me. IMO

As the units get older the flat rate price goes up.

I was out fishing one day and it all of a sudden went off. I thought it was a fuse in the main line so I plugged it into the power cord which runs my back humminbird graph (it remained working). It still wouldn't come on, so I plugged my back graph in and it was working. Needless to say its not a fuse in the main line and not the plug because I tried two of them.
