How i rest developer in machine


Did you run the F8 procedure? Counters are to be cleared before doing the developer. Hope you conducted the F8 before making any copies or prints. Or the new developer will need to be replaced. Service mode is Utility, Stop 00 stop 01. Counters. Clear all three counter for the developer. Under function is the F8. Remember clear counters first change the developer, then run f8, also good time to run F5 (Checks the drum density). HOPE YOU DID NOT USE a vacuum cleaner to remove old developer the static electric from the vacuum cleaner can destroy the sensor attached below the developer unit, with ribbon wire

My Mark 4 sometimes shows incorrect depths. The transducer has not moved and no problem with electrical. One point it is working fine, the screen then runs multiple vertical lines and the depth chan


Take note if when the vertical lines appear on the screen if the depth numbers begin to flash. If this is the case then the transducer has lost bottom contact and the unit is trying to reacquire bottom contact. If the transducer is parallel to the bottom of the lake while your boat is not moving then, the next time you have it on the trailer, turn your unit on and go listen and or feel the transducer to see if you can hear and or feel the tick or sonar ping. If you can't your transducer may be faulty. If the loss of bottom contact occurs when you are moving it will happen at a certain speed. This is the result of air bubbles passing under the transducer and disrupting the sonar signal causing loss of bottom contact.

How to use the floats


Add the floaters to your bait sac to lift off the bottom away from weeds, rocks, and snags and raise bait sacs to fish feeding levels. Replace approximately 25% of bait with floaters.

The bass of my wowee one doesn't work anymore


The problem is most likely a broken solder connection on the the voice coil side of the bass transducer. I just repaired one and it was a 5 minute fix if you have a small soldering iron. Carefully pry off the glossy plastic cover where starting with the side the speaker slits (grill) are. It's just held in with some sticky adhesive (peel it up slowly, allowing the glue to separate without cracking the cover). Below that cover are 6 phillips screws. Unplug bass transducer's wire harness from the circuit board. IThe white connector comes apart with a small tug. The other end of the wire harness goes to the round, green transducer's board which contains the voice coil. Remove the transducer assembly (the round thing with with the clear Gel like substance). Carefully remove the gel surround and separate the round circuit board from the round magnet. One of the black or red wires will probably be disconnected. This is probably due to the a bad solder connection coupled with the constant vibrations. Simply re-solder the connection and re-assemble and you're good to go. When re-asembling the transducer, be sure to install the round board first and make sure it slips UNDER the raised lip inside of the Gel. If installed correctly the whole bottom of the round green board will be in full contact to the gel. Now install the magnet. The magnet should rest on TOP of the gel lip inside, the lip keeps the magnet raised slightly above the board and allows it to vibrate freely without touching the the round board and the voice coil (brown colored wire winding attached to green board. Hope this helps.

Sonar does not appear to work - not picking up depths or bottom structure. All other functions look good.


This problem is most likely linked with your transducer.

1. Check your transducer cable and make sure the plug terminals are clean, as well as the plug on the back of the unit.
2. Make sure the transducer cable is plugged in correctly and securely.
3. Make sure the transducer is in the water and mounted according to the directions, parallel to the bottom of the boat
4. Turn the unit on while the boat is in the water, but with the engine OFF.

IF it works when the engine is off, but vanishes when the engine is on, you may be having electrical interference.

IF it works when the engine is running, but vanishes when the boat is moving, it is a turbulence problem. Move the transducer.

IF it does not work at all, try borrowing a new or a "known good" transducer and seeing if it works then. If so, replace the transducer.

Let us know if these work or now.

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.
