So my vs560 doesnt turn on,called Nature vision and sent in unit they call back and tell me the camera head is the problem and guess what, It is now obsolete! Yep thats right my 3year old $499. camera is now worthless. But they said they would give me a really good deal on a new one. Does Any body else fix those things?

Check the big popular auction site. Someone is selling just the camera unit on there. It's lights don't work, but it's only 99 cents at the moment with one bidder. Maybe you can take it apart and put the two together.

Or call Fishlectronics. I don't know if they work on camera units, but they repair flashers, depth finders, and trolling motors.

Also, the Big C has their own brand of camera with a rotating head unit. I think it was $220 last time I checked.

I've got a 560 that the monitor is out on. The camera works fine.

What kind of a price do they offer for a 820 in exchange for the broken one?

You folks need to exchange info so that one of you can put together a working camera and the other can get a few bucks out of the deal.

MuleShack- How do you know your monitor is out? Just wondering because mine doesn't even turn on and they said it was because of the camera part.

I tried plugging a 12v auto plug connector from the 12V outlet in my house into the front port and she fried just like that.

Live and learn...gotta hook it right to the battery, not the unit. crazy

    • I would say your results speak for themselves, we often do things that don't make sense or trade short term gain for long term trouble. Nature does things for a reason that we often don't understand, why try to fix what isn't broken?
    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
