It is not the transducer. the transducer just provides the sonar reading back to the display. The issue is with the display head unit. Have you tried to adjust the contrast for the fading? Does the screen disappear after awhile? Is the head unit mounted close to other navigation equipment, such as a Compass that may cause interference?

The following are the primary reasons your unit could be experiencing the symptoms you describe. I suggest you check and eliminate each in the order I have listed them. The update should be installed regardless of condition as it is a major update and provides additional functionality to your unit. Please let me know should you require any additional assistance.

Update the Software: Make sure your unit has the latest software version. You can download the update for free at the link below:

http://www.lowrance.com/en/Products/Marine/Full-Size-SonarGPS-Chartplotter-Combos/LMS-332C/Downloads/LMS-332C-Software-Update/

Inspect the Connections: Make sure the power cable connector is seated securely in the connector on the unit. Make sure that the cable connections to the power source are not loose or disconnected.



Clean the Connections: Corrosion or oxidation could occur on the power cable connector pins and fuse-holder. This can prevent sufficient power from flowing to the unit. Clean the connections to be sure. Sometimes the substance is clear and not easily seen.

Backlight Flickering: Make sure your electrical connections are clean and that your power source has a stable ground connection. Try resetting the unit

Lowrance hds 5


I would imagine it might have something to do with water turbulance? Do you have a sensor thats located at the bottom of the boat somewhere? In my grandpas boat, the sensor is at the rear bottom near the hole where you can drain the water, if your going very fast it doesnt work very well, slow or stopped and it works fine. If you have that type of sensor make sure whatever holds it is tight so the sensor cant move around.

either that or you got some funky wiring issue lol

What is the fuse amp requirement for a Lowrance HDS-5 Fishfinder/GPS Chartplotter


The manual says 10 AMP on page 29, but lowrance says to use 3 amp. I have fried 2 hds-5's using a 7 amp which made me call lowrance of course they said that the documentation is in correct. Probably not the the thing to be incorrect about.

My fishfinder lowrance x85 the screen is fading is there any way to tell if it is the unit or the transducer and is there another uniy yhat I can use with that transducer so I won;t have to rewire it...


It is not the transducer. the transducer just provides the sonar reading back to the display. The issue is with the display head unit. Have you tried to adjust the contrast for the fading?

My Lowrance lcx-15mt backlight does not light up. I did not get help from the company, they do not make parts anymore. Is there a person or place that could fix this problem?


Just make sure your power is good and that all of the power connections are clean. Install software updates from http://www.lowrance.com/en/Downloads/Product-Software-Updates/ if you don't already have the latest.

If all of that checks out, take the rebate letter that Lowrance will offer you since they can't fix it any longer and think about the new fishfinder you want to buy. They won't make you send that LCX-15 back so if it is usable at all you can still go with it.

There is no repair facility anywhere that will be able to fix this cheap enough for you. I guess you could check with some electronic repair shops and see if they could take a look, but most likely wouldn't be worth the money...you'd be better off putting the money into a new unit.

You may just need to update the softwear on the GPS, you can download it directly from Lowrance.com along with instructions on how to install it.
