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!

    • Last weekend spent some time re-sealing a small seam leak on a trim edge. Found out the owner before us had a leak on the same trim edge spot and left out a screw!! Also washed down the canopy and the ever reoccurring black streaks around the roof edge.   This weekend may go back and clean out and reseal a few other areas the passed own made a mess of sealing with sillycone! Using Butyl rubber this time as silicone can be pulled right off after a few years.
    • Lots of talk on sports radio and social media lately on whether the Wolves should workout a deal that sends Wiggins to Cleveland for Kyrie. Of course there would likely be some other bit players involved to make contracts work, but for all intents and purposes it's Wiggins for Kyrie.   As a fan, would you do it, yes or no?   I'm personally leaning toward "no." Kyrie is very good and still young. But he doesn't seem to offer much beyond scoring - not a prolific assist guy and his defense has never stood out. Perhaps most importantly, if reports are true and one of the main reasons he wants to leave Cleveland is so he can be the primary star on his own team - that makes me question what type of leader, team player, and locker room presence he would be. Say what you want about Lebron, but on the court he seems like an ideal teammate, almost too willing to make the extra pass. And Cleveland still has one of the best routes back to the Finals, why would you want to get away from that?
      Wiggins certainly has his faults, but he is a dynamite scorer. His defensive is poor, but at least the tools are there to be a good defender. If we lose him we also have a pretty big hole to fill on our roster. Whereas right now we have what appears to be a solid PG in Teague.    I wouldn't hate it if we landed Kyrie, but with our current situation I prefer Wiggins. All in all though, it's certainly fun to finally be in a situation where stars want to play here, not avoid Minny at all costs.
    • For many years my dad, uncles, etc have been heading to the Leech Lake area every spring and fall to fish for walleyes. There are usually 8-10 guys that go. Many of them are from the Barron, Wisconsin area. Since I've never really fished in Wisconsin, thought it might be fun to head to there one of these trips. Have always heard the Hayward area is pristine. Does anyone have a favorite lake, or possibly a favorite resort in the area I should add to the list when doing some research?  Walleyes are the only thing these guys are after.   I know there is a Wisconsin form, but it seems kind of quiet over there, so I'm hoping to get some opinions here.    
    • Well except for the owner. He's kinda ancient!!   We did the same thing with the frig to Dave on the first camper we had.

    • I've done a few things to the old camper in the last few weeks.   First I replaced the old crank jack with a new electric jack.     Then the cooling unit on my fridge went out so I ended up just replacing the 6 cu. ft 2 way fridge with a 9.9 cu. ft. residential electric only fridge.   Next order of business is new tires. Blew one out on the way to Zumbro Falls this weekend    Pretty soon everything on this camper will be brand new!
