Goodluck!

SOURCE: Lowrance LCX-27C has power but only opens to the

The LCX-27C will draw up to 1.5 amps when powering up, if that amount of current is now available, it will power down. Double check your power connections. The +12vdc supply must be able to also supply enough current. Once you get it to stay on you can temporarily shut off the transducer by going into full mapping mode, or switch it to sonar simulation and the current draw will drop considerably. When you are ready for the permanent installation run solid connections directly to the battery and be sure to use the inline fuse for protection.

Comes on white screen then off just for a second


If possible, try to restore the device to the newest firmware on it using your computer using this firmware:
http://www.lowrance.com/en/Products/Marine/Large-Screen-SonarGPS-Chartplotter-Combos/LCX-18C/Downloads/LCX-18C-Software-Update/

OR
Do a soft reset. This may resolve your issues and will also keep your data on the device.
Do a soft reset by:
1. Having the device already off
2. Press and hold the PAGES key
3. Press and hold the PWR key
4. Release both buttons when the USA map appears

If neither of those work, try a hard reset. This will however delete all stored data off your device.
To do a hard reset:
1. Have device off
2. Press and hold the ZIN&ZOUT Keys at the same time
3. Press and hold the PWR key
4. Release both buttons when the USA map appears

If none of these work, contact Lowrance at 1-800-628-4487

Lowrance LCX-19C GPS Receiver Problem


It sounds like you may have to send it out for service, but before you you do there are a few things you can try.

Low voltage can cause erratic behavior. Since you already wired directly to the battery, check the plug for corrosion.

Try unplugging the transducer cable to see if the display still behaves erratically. You wont see depth readings but you should still see the screen going black. If no erratic behavior with transducer unplugged then problem is in the transducer cable or the plug. A common source of failure is at the plug because the added stress of plugging and unplugging cables can cause the socket to twist slightly which can cause a short.

Make sure you have the latest software update.

How to see if your LCX-19C is already using version 1.8.0 software:
  1. Press the MENU button twice on your LCX-19C.
  2. Select SYSTEM SETUP.
  3. Select SOFTWARE INFORMATION.
  4. The software version for your unit is located under the line that says "LCX-19C" (ex. "Version 1.8.0").
  5. If your version is the same version listed above, there is no need to download the software.
If it is lower than 1.8.0 you can download the update from this link: LCX-19C UPDATE
Copy it onto a blank MMC card and install it in your GPS. The GPS should prompt you on how to install the update.

If you need to send the unit in for service click this link: LOWRANCE SERVICE

Good luck!
