Getting ready for a beach trip, I broke out my beloved Tiger Shark, and found it not working.
Examining it carefully, I discovered two wires from the battery compartment not connected to anything. The red from the 12v+, and the black wire from the transformer. A service manual would be a great thing to have, or even some decent images of the disassembled unit. The PC boards are not really well marked, and I just don't know where to resolder those leads.
Thank you in advance- T

Thanks, but it is worse than that.
Here is what I have- ts.jpg

The two wires that go nowhere are the positive from the battery pack connection, and the black from the transformer.

Thank you, but here is what it look like-

The red wired comes from the positive on the battery holder, and the black one from the transformer. I am sure it is an easy solder job, if I can figure out where they go.

I wish i could help more but mine hasn't been used since i had it refurbished at Tesoro and I'm not pulling it apart any farther. Good luck. It's a great machine.

I don't blame you. I would not have pulled mine apart except that it was not working. I think what happened is that it was rattling around in the cargo area of the RV for a couple of cross country trips, and just shook itself apart. Perhaps you or someone else here could take a pic of the inside of the unit with the faceplate off and the battery out. Even a rough idea where the wires go could help narrow it down a bit.
It is a great unit. I spent years using it on western pacific battlefields, especially in caves and the waters around the disputed islands. It never let me down.
