12 posts in this topic

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

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
