To troubleshoot the problem Iwould recommend the following steps.

  1. Try a soft reset
  2. If the problem resurfaces, try a hard reset
  3. Update the the operating system software

Soft Reset (Does not delete GPSData)
1. Turn unit OFF 2. Press and holdthe PAGES key
3. Press and hold the PWR key
4. Release both buttons when the USA map
Appears

Hard Reset (Deletes stored GPS Data
such as Waypoints and trails)
1. Back up any waypoints, routes,and trails that you want to save on a blank MMC card
2. Turn unit OFF
3. Press and hold the ZIN&ZOUTKeys at
the same time
4. Pressand hold the PWR key
5. Release both buttons when the USAmap
appears

To update the operating system software, check out this link:

If you don't have a card reader I can program an update card for you.

Mine does the same thing when the voltage is low. The GPS part will drain the battery if left connected. Learned the hard way. I installed a battery isolator switch, the one with the big red key, and switch the battery to "Off" when finished. Either that or unplug your unit each time. Still, if the battery is not maintained during storage, the same problem will arise until the battery has been fully charged. Never has done this when the outboard is running and current is going to the battery from the alternator.

I turn my power source on and my screen flashes like it's not reading anything from my transducer but the transducer is new.


Has this unit worked in the past, or are the transducer and the unit itself new? Is this a Lowrance LMS-240 as indicated before your question?

Please let me know and I can help you out here.

Thanks, just reply here,

Transducer loses bottom at any type of speed greater than trolling. Worked fine last year with all the same setttings. All I can think of is , maybe the battery is low. The boat just came out of storage...


Check the transducer for any damage on the front part. Also make sure there isn't any damage on the bottom of the boat that is causing air bubbles to cross the face of the transducer. If it works at slow speeds there is definitely something causing air bubbles.

Unit not working properly


G'day
I had a similar problem of the unit turning off when the engine was started.
I simply replaced the battery as the one one boat was only registering about 11 amps. This unit requires amps to be over 12 to maintain the readings. This fixed my problem at least.
If you are not getting a reading on the transducer you may need to make some slight adjustment on the transducer itself. Is it installed correctly? There is a manaul with pictures detailing the exact method of installing the transducer. It is very important you get this right.
Good luck mate

Installing an old used lowrance fish finder


I don't think your old fish finder is the LMS-332C GPS Receiver listed above in the description. You don't need the speed wheel for the fish finder to function just the transducer and transducer mount. You should mount that on the back of the boat towards the center but not too close to the motor and not too close to the side of the board. Don't let it hand below the level of the boat. That should keep it from getting hit by the trailer or dragging on the bottom. Try to make it as level as possible. The green and white wires may be for the speed wheel but i'd need a model number for clarification. Hope this helps.
