can check clean the cable terminals and cable connection with crc or wd40. might be a bad power connection. but the unit might be cactus. if you can take it in to a bcf or a "boating and rv" shop and tell them your problem and ask to bench test the unit on one of there power supplys and if its still doing it then you will have a warranty issue if it seems to sort it out you know the power lead needs replacing. it can corrode and will let the voltage through but not the current and the unit will power cycle(switch it self of then back on etc)
