Re: powerin up - screen goes blank after a few swconds -

Throw your hard earned money in the garbage and buy from another company, Lowrance is good at taking your money, but when its time for repair they no longer repair or service these units. They insult you buy offering a coupon for another one of their crappy products.Why would I buy another one of your products? They must think that the fishing community is stupid.

Had same problem. the cause was corrosion in the boat wiring. the power wire was corroded 95%thru. there was enough voltage to start the unit but when the sounder kicks in the voltage dropped below minimum and the unit shut off. took a LOOOONG time to find.

GPS Does not work

If you have a memory card inserted, remove it...if the problem goes away, try replacing that card. If the problem occurs with any card then...

Try installing the latest update from
even if you already had the latest...try installing it again.

If the problem occurs with any card, and after updating or attempting to update, there is a probably a malfunction with the XOG and it will need to be repaired/replaced. The Lowrance contact by phone is 800-324-1356 and go to to email them.

I have the same problem, it started after updating. Spoke with Lowrance tech and said it is a hard drive problem.
I had to purchase a 600 for $250 because they gave me a discount for having paid for the update and the unit
is malfunctioning. They refused to consider that it may be a software problem. The screen loses calibration and
the unit goes balistic with the orientation. Have had the unit for 4 years with no problem until updates were installed

Cannot access main menu or pages screen

I think I can help with your issue. I have an LMS 334c and have had a few issues in the past. Called the factory (this answer is not listed any where in your manual) and they instructed me to "Soft Re Boot" my unit and it would put everything back to factory settings. Try this anytime it does not respond for whatever reason.

Turn the unit off.

At the same time press the Pages and Power button. Hold both down until you see the square box come up in the screen. You should have your factory settings again. May need to try a few times.
Lowrance said it works just like a computer, ever now and then it just tries to disect to much information at one time and hangs up.
Good luck. James Cantwell

Lowrance LCX-19C GPS Receiver Problem

It sounds like you may have to send it out for service, but before you you do there are a few things you can try.

Low voltage can cause erratic behavior. Since you already wired directly to the battery, check the plug for corrosion.

Try unplugging the transducer cable to see if the display still behaves erratically. You wont see depth readings but you should still see the screen going black. If no erratic behavior with transducer unplugged then problem is in the transducer cable or the plug. A common source of failure is at the plug because the added stress of plugging and unplugging cables can cause the socket to twist slightly which can cause a short.

Make sure you have the latest software update.

How to see if your LCX-19C is already using version 1.8.0 software:
  1. Press the MENU button twice on your LCX-19C.
  2. Select SYSTEM SETUP.
  4. The software version for your unit is located under the line that says "LCX-19C" (ex. "Version 1.8.0").
  5. If your version is the same version listed above, there is no need to download the software.
If it is lower than 1.8.0 you can download the update from this link: LCX-19C UPDATE
Copy it onto a blank MMC card and install it in your GPS. The GPS should prompt you on how to install the update.

If you need to send the unit in for service click this link: LOWRANCE SERVICE

Good luck!
