    Hello everyone, my wife and I just picked up an 05 340 Sundancer last night and completed a short tutorial with the dealer - one thing we didn't cover was how to operate the TV's. We have one in the Galley area and one outside above the sink, and a small flip down one in the rear birth, its the only one that powers on . I have turned on everything I can think of and they are and for some reason neither power on. Any ideas? Is there a helm switch or something I may be overlooking? Thanks so much!

    Feel around the back? top? Bottom? Sides? For buttons. If nothing else download a universal remote app for your phone. As long as you have 110ac at your outlets the tv should work

    Can you verify there is power to the outlet? Check GFI in bathroom cabinet?

    Check all of your outlets for power. Possible GFI breaker needs to be reset.
    Edit: Phasma types faster.

    Sea Ray has the odd habit of hiding GFI outlets. My bet is that is your problem

    One other thought, is that with 3 TV's on a 340, it's not a stock configuration, so maybe they aren't all 110V units, sometimes folks install 12V TV's, in which case you might have to flip on an accessory breaker on the panel, or somewhere else, to get them power. Not too likely, but I have been on boats with 12V televisions and the power was being drawn from an accessory circuit that had its own breaker switch.

    If your generator isnt running or you are not on shore power, those other t.v.'s (besides the small one) will not be getting power.

    Thats huge possibility. The boat has lots of addons, two stereo head units, one that plays dvds, track vision, seperate dvd playersin the the rear, two that I could count.. Alot going on in there.. I even found some black box wired in that had these large buttons that say A and B.. Ill post pictures as well.

    So I dint take any pictures because I am in the same situation as day one. I had a dock neighbor come over and take a look as well and we have both surmised there must be a hidden custom switch we are overlooking because the TV's are simply off. There is one extra accessory switch on the panel that when I turn on emits a high pitch barely audible tone for a few moments - and I have no clue what Im turning on or off so i flip it back off. Either way TV's are still off.. Im going to ask the salesman to reach out to the person we purchased it from to ask for assistance. thanks again for all the replies.

    Good idea! We had a dock neighbor that bought a Meridian that an electrician had owned. I never figured out the electrical system on it.....I told him to get some info from the PO, but he never did.
