Default HDS-5 Will not power up.... Come on, Man!

I was out on the water this weekend and looked up at my HDS5 and realized it wasn't powered on. I looked at the power switch and it was on. I have checked the fuse and for power, but it will not power back up. Any ideas?

do you have a voltage meter? You need to start there and make sure it is getting power... if the it is, then hook the unit up directly to a battery and see if it fires up...

Did you check your ground?

Take the unit into a store that has a working display unit, ask if you can plug into their power lead for a second.....

It's not dimmed all the way down by any chance?

Check for power to the and from the fuse holder and to the power cable connector at the HDS, and same for confirming connection to a proven good negative ground connection.
