Pp stargazer problem

Hey guys,
My 08 Mastercraft tt has zero off and perfect pass. My perfect pass screen is in the off mode and will not turn on and will not give me a speed reading, but does give a rpm down the bottom.

Any ideas on how to fix this

    I really don't know, but is the paddle wheel plugged in? And check the GPS puck plug in. Those are both on the right side if I recall.

    Yeah sure does.

    So..... forget about the PP and use the ZO....
  • dave_190dave_190 Posts: 14
    Hahaha I never use the pp, im starting to think its time to upgrade the boat and it's not a good look if it doesn't work.
  • dave_190dave_190 Posts: 14
    Yeah I did the old unplug and plug everything back in again trick and nothing changed

    @dave_190 I am not getting something here. If I had ZO on my boat along with PP I would not notice if the PP didnt work nor would I care. Why does it matter if PP works? It is not used in tourneys.
  • dave_190dave_190 Posts: 14
    Just because it should work. Not that I use it. But it's there and it should work. And when I want it to sell the boat everything should be working. There is a high possibility that a non Tournament skier will buy the boat, not even having a clue what they both do and it won't be a good look something isn't working

    Driver: Would you like PP or ZO?
    Skier: I'll take Perfect Pass on this set

    I have never heard this before and it'd be crazy if this conversation ever went on.
    Can I just ski 24/7?
  • dave_190dave_190 Posts: 14
    Yeah seems the. 08 tournament team came out with both. I dunno why but it did.

    Any ideas of what's wrong with my PP?

    Not getting a lot of love here so far, huh Dave?.. Make sure your boat is actually running, PP has voltage needs. There may be an in-line fuse somewhere under there, too.

    Yeah not a lot, I get pp sucks and no one uses it. I also have a shower which I never use In the boat but when I realised it was broken I fixed it, same goes for pp.
    I've tried everything I can think of, I was hoping someone had had this problem or could point me in good direction.

    Remove the PP sell it on SIA. Put a gauge back in. Just because it came with it does not mean you have to sell the boat with it.
    It came with both because both could be used in tournaments that year I believe.
  • dave_190dave_190 Posts: 14
    That sounds like more hard work then to fix it. And who would buy it??
  • MattPMattP Posts: 6,000 Mega Baller
    Thats your prerogative. You never know.
    Call PP I bet they can walk you through it.
  • dave_190dave_190 Posts: 14
    Any chance of a number? Or being able to tell me the time difference? Im in Australia and it 3pm now.
  • MattPMattP Posts: 6,000 Mega Baller
    (902) 468-2150 I believe is what it is.
    shoot [email protected] and I bet you can line up a call time that works best with the time difference.
  • Chef23Chef23 Posts: 5,961 Mega Baller
    I think there is about a 12 hour time difference. The PP guys are very helpful. Just a word of warning though my control module fried last year and I had to replace it. They were very helpful in the process but I wound up having to put a new module in.

    I know in 08 the MC came with both. That said I don't think a functioning PP adds any value to your boat. I do understand your not wanting to sell it without fixing it though.

    Great, I just emailed them. Il let u know what they say the problem in
  • tfriesstfriess Posts: 401 Baller
    @dave_190 what version PP do you have?
    Can I just ski 24/7?
  • dave_190dave_190 Posts: 14
    Stargazer. Also, it's only been 14 hours but no reply from perfect pass..... Yet
  • dave_190dave_190 Posts: 14
    I'm really starting to think il have to fork out for a new stargazer. Not even one idea on how to fix it,I get it that it sucks and no uses it,but........... We used to use it. I really was hoping for a common problem and a quick fix.
    I'm open to any suggestion, except for sell it it, dont ' worry about or pull it out a d out a gauge in.
  • bigtallweedbigtallweed Posts: 131 Baller
    Do you know someone with the same master module you could switch with to see if it is the module or something connected to it or voltage problem ?
  • dave_190dave_190 Posts: 14
    I don't know anyone wit stargazer. But I haven't exactly asked around. I will try that and swap the gauges and see if that will allow me turn it on and get into it.

    I would say if the issue comes where you may have to replace perfect pass, you might want to save some coin and run the perfect pass precision star and just put the GPS speedometer in the slot where the stargazer was.

    My guess is actually the GPS puck could've crapped out but who knows. Maybe PP can email you some guidance on troubleshooting it.

    Cheaper to put PP classic in there than replace SG. There also may be a certain market for a price discounted accordingly b/c the SG doesn't work. As a buyer who wants ZO, I wouldn't give a rip and if it meant the boat was now in my price range and all else was good would go for it.

    Just an update. Aaron at PP has been very helpful. Looks like its going to be 200 buks for that plus shipping and a possible software upgrade, which I don't think I really need cause I never use it. And by the look of it the Australian dealer of perfect pass in still USA, so work that out.
