Question about Lowrance 5300C GPS Receiver
I bought the unit along with a Minnesota lakes card about one year ago. About three months ago I tried to use it and when I turned it on, all it did was flash a blank screen momentarily. Is there anything I can do to fix it myself? Thank you. Papajon

Hello 2* The unit asks if you want to reset all the options. Press ? to YES'ENT. All options are reset, and the unit reverts back to the Map Page at the 4000 mile zoom range. (Any recorded sonar logs or GPS
Tranducers must not connected while the system is ON. They are hi-frequency sound emitting devices, connecting it when the mother unit is LIVE, will make the transducer drive inside the device to fail. Here that has been happend I thinks. Just reset the system to its factory settings.
1* Press MENU'MENU'? to SYSTEM SETUP'ENT'? to RESET OPTIONS'ENT
data will be unchanged.)
If this process do not help you, your GPS need service. We can't get any schematic diagrams or sevice manuals of GPS devices, as security reason, they will not be published. You must have contact the Lowrance Authorised Service centere at your town to get this device repaired. OK.
