My Humminbird does not work at all as far as I know, it comes on ok then all the screen display pops up then disapears,then nothing,there is no sound at all either.

Dont think its worth fixing, I am buying a new VHF, it'll be better in the long run

radio

agree with last comment, ditch it, they are out of date and are only waterproof to US spec, first thing to go is the internal speaker followed by the controls and goes down hill from there.
Been there before.

I'm sorry to say this, the Humming bird is great in the USA where you can get the warrenttee service and a replacement on the dock waiting for you when it breaks.
Other wise use it as a fishing weight, the company I used to work for used them in small boats offshore and they lasted 6 mths to a year.
The Icoms we used to fit lasted a few years and the nitrogen filled simrads? lasted about the same time.
