Simrad chart plotter service

Post by BarryandLinda » Sat May 24, 2014 3:17 pm

Does anyone know where I can have my Simrad CP32 Chart plotter fitted with a new memory battery, and the 'power' button connections checked( which I have to hold down for ages before it turns on ). I have been on Simrads website, and sent an email, and left a phone message, but after a week I've had no response.
thanks
Barry

Hi,after a bit of research the battery is a"cr2032-t25" this is a horizontal 3 pin pcb memory battery available from http://www.smallbattery.company.org.uk
The next bit involves a soldering iron and a bit of electronics knowhow .Search u tube for simrad cp32 and this chap will show you how its done!
Failing this I would ask a local computer geek to do it for you! It will be a lot cheaper :wink:

Just a quick update to this.
Remember that static sparks can do odd things to any electronic circuit. Wearing nylon clothes is a no-go .Always discharge the work surface and yourself by touching a 'safe' earth (an example would be the metal case of a kettle when plugged into a UK 3 pin socket) and then touch the work surface areas while touching the 'safe'earth.
Do the work but if you leave for a comfort break or other(cup of tea as the kettles nearby!) make sure you discharge to 'safe' earth before touching any electronic circuit.

Thanks...that's good advice from everyone, and the youtube video is excellent. By the way I did get a quote from Simrad....£150 + VAT, P&P etc.!!
