Cannon Digi-troll II - Advice needed

Recommended Posts

Hello all.  Great site!

 

I took 2 Digi-troll II downriggers out of retirement and I'm trying to install them on my new used boat.  Overall, they are in very good shape and I was able to pull together most of the base parts I would need.  One of them is not working.  Here is the status of that one:

  • Control board powers up and the display looks normal (bright and responsive)
  • The display responds to buttons that are pressed
  • Pushing the Up/Down bottom does not work but you can hear something trying to engage

 

Based on what I've read here, the control board is typically the problem, and that could very well be the case with mine, however it doesn't necessarily sound like a typical board issue.  I'm thinking of removing the board for the heck of it.  Any advice appreciated. Big thanks!

Hopefully Gasman got some info for you-thought I’d pass along some more.  Your comment re: retirement is accurate as they are probably 35 years old(I had a new set in 1986).  The control pad assembly hasn’t been available in 15 to 20 years.  Used to be able to convert them to mag 10a without the key pad but I don’t know if those parts are still around.  The motors are also tough to find as well.  You can go to Fish 307 website for parts/repair and pull up a schematic then see what is available.  They’ll probably work if you don’t mind looking for used parts.
