Aqua-Vu Jr. Cable Cracked->Fix or Replace?

7 posts in this topic

My dad has an Aqua vu Jr that he's used less than a dozen times and the outer coating of the camera cable cracked right where the cable enters the camera housing. He said it doesn't work now. Is the camera destroyed? Can the cable be fixed or replaced? Does he have to replace the camera and cable? Does the Camera/cable from a Z-60 work on the Jr.? What kind of warranty do these have? Will Aqua Vu replace it for free? Thanks.

Hawgtime,

Aqua-View will fix it for free. There was a flaw in there design. Tell your dad to cal there toll free number and they will have him send it in and they will fix it.

Yeah, I would call Aqua-Vu. The hubbies brother bought one last summer and the cable was bad right out of the box, brand new, never used. There was a broken wire right at the connector where it goes to the video screen. He bought it at Capra's in Blaine and they replaced it of course no charge. I would call Aqua-Vu and see what they say.

Hawgtime,

Honestly I'd upgrade it to a Z60 for $100. But if you just want to get a new JR then we do have a few cameras left on the shelf for repairs. Of course it is your call.

FYI: Just thought I would let you know how the call to Aqua Vu went. Since my dad's JR. was over one year old, the only option they gave him was a Z-60 upgrade for $150. They would have replaced the unit for free if it was less than a year old. Anyway. He went for the upgrade deal.

My camera died on my yesterday. The picture on the screen would flicker when the camera moved, before it completely died. I isolated the problem and the power wire inside the cable somehow cut and I managed to solder the wire together and patch it all up. It looks ugly now, but a heck of a lot cheaper than a new unit! wink.gif

I would think that if you dried out the camera well (disassemble) that it would regain life. I know cell phones do when they go down the hole!

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
