SPEED/TEMPERATURE SENSOR WORK SPORADICALLY(lowrance X-85)

Hi, I have a lowrance X-85. when I turn it on, the speed and temperature sensor (model ST-TBK) indicate the speed and temperature on screen and all is right. But after fifteen minutes, the sensor does not work well because it indicates the same temperature even if the temperature has changed and the speed indicates 0 mile per hour. Then I turn it off and turn it on afterwards and it still works well for only fifteen minutes and the same problem occurs.
Can you help me please to fix this problem?

SOURCE: When turning on the Lowrance

here is the link to your the lowrance web site. the trouble shooting guide says that if you tried to it on another boat than you might need to take it in for service. but there is a section that explains how to do a soft reset on the unit. you might try that.

SOURCE: Globalmap 2000 sonar not responding

Not enough info to diagnose your problem. It sounds like a networking problem. I couldn't find a manual for the sam-st module so I'm not sure how you have it hooked up. Typically with these devices only one would be hooked up to the SONAR module, and it would then share the data with the other display via an ethernet or NMEA2000 network. The erratic behavior of your bluewater could be due to some sort conflict with the current coming from the GlobalMap2000. Do you get the same problem when the 2000 is turned off? Have you tried running the GlobalMap2000 with the bluewater turned off?

SOURCE: 98 dodge caravan problems

I had the same issue with my dodge caravan and after several attempts by the dealer to fix it, it turned out to be a broken wire. They replaced the relay and it would work for a while and then go blank again. Have the wires checked thoroughly.

SOURCE: ABS light & brake light on, problems with speedo working properly

The rear wheel speed sensor is the most common problem on those trucks and will do what you are talking about. It is located at the top of the rear axle in the center. It picks up it's signal from a tone ring on the diff inside! If a tranny input or output sensor is bad then the tranny won't shift properly!

Does the x510c have a speed and temp transducer or just the paddle seperately


Hi Rick

There is only one transducer. for speed/temperature. From page 2 of the owner's manual (see link below)
"A single-frequency with built-in temperature
sensor is packed with the X-510c"

Hope this helps and happy boating!
-Steve

Hi, whenever I power off my lowrance 125 it defaults the settings and I constantly have to change them every time I turn it back on, also the speed read out on the top left remains at 0 kts, however I do...


These units have internal batteries that power a small bubble memory that remarks your settings. I would conclude that this battery is dead. The result being your unit forgets your settings every time you turn it off.
Possibly a faulty speed wheel on your unit as to why the system no longer registers speed.
Try recalibration the speed. http://www.lowrance.com/Root/Lowrance.../x136df_0151-171_112003.pdf

What would cause my aspire 5630 to shut down sporadically?


Shut down sporadically, caused by rising temperatures on the processor (processor overheat). Processor overheat, caused by damage to the processor fan. Processor fan function to reduce the processor temperature.

Possibilities and solutions
1. The possibility of sluggish processor fan. Processor fan spins, with a low speed, so it can not reduce the processor temperature.
Solution: clean the processor fan with a vacuum cleaner, or replace the processor fan.
2. The possibility of fan processor die.
Solution: replace the processor fan.

The characteristics of damage to the processor fan
After the laptop is turned off (more than 1 hour), the laptop can turn on and survive + - 30 minutes. In the period of + - 30 minutes, the laptop died suddenly, because the processor temperature exceeds safe limits (shut down temperature).

How to check
Laptop is turned off (more than 1 hour), then turn on. Download and install software to check the processor temperature. Ex. Real Temp 3.60. See the change in temperature. If the temperature continues to rise, it can certainly cause damage to the processor fan.
- Normal temperature, when first turned on + - 38oC
- Normal temperature, after turn on for hours 40oC - 45oC
- Temperature overheat processor, when first turned on 60oC - 65oC

My guess is trapped air in the cooling system. If the cooling system was just filled with antifreeze without bleeding the air, it could cause sporadic overheating. It could also be the cooling fan not coming on at high speeds. Next time the temperature rises, turn on the defroster for th front windshield. That should cause the air conditioner to come on, which in turn will turn on the cooling fan. If the temperature drops, I would suspect the cooling fan sensor is faulty.

check your wiring for dirty connections or broken wires, you may have wires that are rubbed through or connectors that are not making full contact. you will need an ohm meter and check wires for continuity. a wiring diagram will be needed.
