Flickering & power off
I have a night mariner in excellent cosmetic condition that works, sort of. It comes on and gives a great picture. But, at the same time, the image flickers... not totally off and on but just flickers... about one or two times a second. The flickers are fast and irregular, like 1/2 second, then 1 second, etc. Then after a few minutes, the entire instrument powers itself off. If you turn it back one, it will do it all over again. Batteries are fresh.
