Lowrance EP-85R storage device problems I have installed an Lowrance EP-85R storage device to my network to display and record fuel usage from my E-tec. The storage works well as I can record and display all fuel data on my LFM-400 gauges, however every trip I do at different time intervals the storage unit will reset and display strange figures. The i am forced to reset all data. Please help as this defeats the purpose of installing the device

SOURCE: My Iomega Network Hard Drive has a Problem

I had a similar problem with an iomega DHD250-NS network storage device.

After a sudden power outage none of the files on the drive were available, and it only displayed a makecgi file.

I removed the internal IDE drive and installed it as a secondary on a Windows based PC. I then used the Linux file explorer (explorer2fs) to restore all of my files onto the Windows based PC.

I then reset the drive, and copied all of my files back on to it.

It worked for me, I hope it helps you.

SOURCE: How to recover data from lacie etherdisk when it does not keep a network conntection.

I'll have to look into it a little more but off the top of my head I would say that the nic may be going bad or some other component of the etherdisk. You can try opening it up and putting the hard drive into an enclosure and connecting it to a pc via usb to get the data, you can also then share the usb drive and use it over the network, however removing the hard drive may void any warranty you may have. If the hard drive is in fact bad then you should be able to replace it and then continue to use the device. I'll get back to you when I get more info about the device.

SOURCE: Mitshubishi Mr Slim does not take out the humidity!

Air conditioners are designed to remove heat from a room or cool it down and it will take some humidity out of the room. Depending on the (SEER) Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio as to the amount a 12 and 13 SEER typically remove about 20 to 25% but that is not its purpose to remove humidity.
If you are only interested in removing humidity, then you should get a humidifier, but if you also want to cool the room then the air conditioner may work if it's not to big for the room (oversized). to help in dehumidifying you would want to lower your indoor air flow over the evaporator ( lower the blower speed as low as possible by using the manufacturers minimum airflow recomendations.

My new Lowrance Hook-5 GPS isn't working, I'm a noob, how do I get this function working?


'isn't working' is such a broad problem. If it is only the GPS, it is covered from Page 49 of the manual and shows you can access Satellite information. Note, it almost certainly won't work in your garage or storage. It need to see the sky as the antennae is internal.

The unit has an installation guide. In my personal opinion, it is better to let a professional boat engineer install it, mainly for the correct fitting of the transducer on the stern. Correct placing makes all the difference to a good set up, unless you intend to fish without the engine running.

All they need is mounting, power through a fuse direct to the battery, and the transducer fitting. Then you put the boat in the water and switch it on.

Need a repair shop for GPS,Fisher


Hi Clarence
Although the problem COULD be a faulty depth transducer, in my experience this is usually caused by a cabling problem, either there is a poor connection at the display unit, a poor power cable connection, RF interference from another device or the cable has been pinched causing an intermittent fault. After making SURE the power cable is tight, I'd clean the connections, then inspect the cable looking for an area that has been stressed. If you have a VHF radio nearby, try shutting that down during your testing. If depth reads normally, you know where your issue lies.

Good Luck!

Record greeting


What kind of voice mail system do you have? They all are limited to the amount of total storage available. It probably has one or more mail boxes that are full and using up your storage. If it is a call pilot 100 or 150 and you have call pilot manager access, you can click on "message usage" under the reports menu and it will tell you the current storage available. Hope this helps.

Dubbing from VCR to DVD


Dont use xp mode. Here are the definitions:
SP is short for Standard Play. Standard play allows you to record information onto the tape the way it was intended, with no quality loss. By default, VCRs and camcorders will record your footage as standard play. On a standard VHS tape, recording footage in SP mode will yield 2 hours of video.
LP is short for Long Play. Long play allows you to record much more information at the expense of quality. It accomplishes this by reducing the speed the tape is run through the VCR. As the tape speed decreases, the quality will also decrease. You’ll notice this effect when comparing a tape recorded at LP versus one recorded at SP, especially after years of storage. The LP tape will appear more blurred, have more tracking and color issues than tapes recorded at SP. A VHS tape recorded at LP can hold roughly 4 hours of video.
EP/SLP is short for extended play. Extended play is similar to LP, but actually provides you even more recording time. EP was primarily used to document long, continuous events without the need to change video tapes every 2 hours. Due to the fact that the video is not of optimal quality, many times this setting was not used in order to preserve the quality of your footage. Tapes recorded at EP usually are the most problematic after years of storage, displaying a wide variety of tape damage symptoms including color loss, audio loss, frame skipping, and tracking issues.

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?
