Zercom color point repair?

6 posts in this topic

As a recent member of the Forum I have read with interest of the pro's and Con's of the Zercom color point. I have one that is two years old that is in need of some repair. I have learned that factory repair is available for $98. I would appreciate comments from anyone that has had problems and what they did. Are they worth repairing? Or has anyone had experience with factory repair? Does factory repair eliminate some of the earlier problems that the units had?
Thanks, Makky

CNY Tim Thanks for the reply. Even though Zercom was bought out by Humminbird the units are still factory repaired at Techsonic Ind. in Eufaula, Alabama. That is the same repair source on my original Zercom manual. So from what I have read on the talk forum they have had plenty of experience. From what I have heard their main problem was with transducers. Externally it looks like a high quality unit.
Thanks Makky

I have a Colorpoint, sent it in end of last season, Humminbird extended the warrenty and fixed it fine, the lights would go dim and would only get bright very rarely. I was more then happy with thier service,I know they had allot of problems with them, that's why they quit making them.
Is $98 a good deal? Is it cheaper to fix it or spend $300 plus for a new Vex or Murcom? I love the Colorpoint but it's the only flasher I have ever used on the ice.
I guess this is something you gotta figure for youreself.
Good luck

cwmn - You don't have to spend $400 on a MarCum if you put your colorpoint on hsolist, mine is already up to $202.50 with 4 days to go...
If you like your colorpoint like I did you will absolutely adore the MarCum. I have had it out since first ice Dec. 6 th and it has continue to perform flawlessly.

1.) I am not a slave to technology.
2.) I will not buy new technology until it is on the market 2 or 3 years. Witness the Colorpoint problems and the FL-18 problems.
3.) My Colorpoint should last until the virtual reality fish finder comes on the market... LOL

    • Don't worry Chuck......PF has your back.
    • It's just sooooooooo easy.
    • Speaking of Russia:   A timeline of recent events. 11/28/16 - " Trump’s campaign took him up on it in March. From those meetings, Nunes grew close with retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, a top Trump hand who has just been nominated to be the president-elect’s national security adviser. 2/13/- 1) Flynn gets recorded by Intel agencies, we know he discussed sanctions and 2) it was part of a "Peace Plan" involving Cohen, Sater and a Ukranian named Alex Oronov 3) who is now dead. 2/16 - Flynn faces no FBI charges Source 3/20 - Comey announces FBI investigation into members of Trump campaign. Repubs, including Nunes, spend a great deal of it concerned about Unmasking of Flynn from incidental collection. Source 3/22 - Nunes spends his week freaking out about possible incidental collection he's been told about from an unknown source, immediately warns Trump. Source Now to go back to January, Who happened to be at the Breakfast with Flynn in January involving Turkey? Nunes. Where did it happen? Trump hotel in Washington. Source  3/22 - The House Oversight Committee on Wednesday requested documents related to ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn from the White House, FBI, Department of Defense and Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Source 3/22 - Schiff now claims there's "More than circumstantial evidence of Collusion (Unrelated to Nunes new info) Source 3/23 - CNN story drops that "The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign, The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings ." Source 3/24 - Nunes cancels 2nd open hearing with Intel Committee, seemingly for no reason. Source - Albeit today we learned Sally Yates was going to talk about Michael Flynn at this hearing. 3/24 - Manafort, Stone and Page all more or less simultaneously agree to speak with Intel Committee. Source 3/24 - National Inquirer (owned by Trump's friend) very oddly throws Flynn under the bus. Source 3/25 - Claim that Flynn may have cut a deal Source It seems Flynn may be spilling the beans here, which would not bode well for Trump.   Also I didn't even get to today's news about Kushner and Russia.     What do we know VEB? It ran a spy ring in New York City. Here's another fun coincidence:     Prosecuted by our now removed district attorney.
