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!

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

    • LOL,They just pulled the bill. Obama's not even in office and he's still kicking the GOP's arse.  That takes talent.
    • GOP just postponed vote. They got nothin'.

    • See what I mean, he is winning an imaginary game with himself and we are all the losers.  It's actually very hilarious, maybe I will play a few rounds. D2E can win again and again and we can all laugh when be boasts about his wicked awesome super trolling.



       

    • All very true same here, I just don't like what I see out east but I guess the same could be said for every other country in the world. Still though, we are responsible and if we want change bad enough we need to take some action.
    • Yeah I know it always adds up.  I have done some construction work and a bit of home wiring and plumbing so I can usually come pretty close to price.  The parts that always kill me are when I need to go back to the store for a 30 cent bolt or something really small that just kills ya to make the trip ha!
    • 7 year of beeotching and the GOP finally has the chance to prove they can both lead the country and come up with a better plan than Obamacare and they failed at every level.   Great job.
    • We know. Halfwit us waaaaay too advanced for you to process. Just do the best you can and we will try to slow things down a bit for you.
    • I am looking at purchasing a newer house and my boat is in storage and I cannot get it out right now. How short of a garage can I go and still get the boat in the garage with an angle? I would love to buy a house with a bigger garage but that is not in the budget right now, and the boat always stays indoors.
    • Yo-Zuri Hybrid.   It's technically a co-polymer line, but it's a terrific, tough, low-stretch substitute for monofilament. It's also very affordable.   The thing you want to consider with Hybrid is that its actually breaking strength is about 1.5x the listed strength. For example, the 12# breaks at about 20 pounds of pull.   The most useful line for a spinning rig would be 4-6#, with 6# being very useful.   For baitcasting setups, try the 10-12# lines. 12# is on most of my rods with moving baits.   Give this stuff a shot. It may very well become your new favorite line.
