    Hale970, Not sure of your problem.These units are very power sensitive I would start by checking battery voltage or try a new battery. Check battery conections. If you can check pin voltage, where it plugs into back of unit. Is it hooked up to the cranking battery? Can you check it on a friends boat that you know works O.K. The fact that it worked originally makes me think it is a voltage problem. It only needs a small voltage drop to not power up. Good Luck, hope you solve the problem. Sorry I could not be of more help..... crappie1133

    Hale970,
    What software version is running in your 597ci HD DI unit?
    The latest is 6.640. if your unit does not have this version update it and try it again.

    hale970,
    You can try selecting the “Program” option from those listed on that Matrix Boot Screen and activate it, but you need to have the memory card with the latest software version install in the unit when you do. If it will not reprogram when trying this you will have to contact the Humminbird Customer Resource folks at 1-800-633-1468 and set it up to get your unit back in to be fixed.
