Question about Lowrance ELITE-4X DSI FISHFINDER

Open Question

Screen is dark and barely discernible at level 10, but was good when first started up?

Have a new Lowrance Elite-4X HDI fishfinder that started-up with a brightly lit up screen, but now I can barely see the backlighting (shows 10) when adjusting it up using the Light/Power button. What do I need to do??? Howard

Check the reverse protection diode and capacitors on the unit's power circuit.

I bought a used boat with a lowrance Elite-4x HDI in May. It worked fine until just the other day it won't power up. I have 12V of power through the power cord to the connector.


Press & hold the + & - key while powering unit on, continue to hold the +/- keys until the unit boots up to warning screen. This don't do it, call support 800-628-4487 and talk to a tech as an "experienced technician". Best luck & good fishin!

How to install the navionics micro sd chip


Hi James

After looking through the user's manual, (see link below) as this unit doesn't have chartplotter capability I think there is no slot for your SD card.

Sorry I couldn't have given you more joy.

The diagram for the fish finder has two cables for power. does each cable have a wire going to a hot lead and a groundand a bond or do you just need to connect only one wire


Hi
One of the two cables is for power to the battery while the other supplies power to the transducer. BOTH cables (+ and -) must be used and intact.
In case anyone requires it, here is the link to the installation manual.
Hope this helps.

How do I set position on my lowrance hdi 7


The GPS will automatically triangulate your position and display it on the map screen.
If you have your cursor turned on the the map screen will remain centered on the cursor.
while on the map screen push the Menu key and then the Enter key. If you notice the pop up window when you push menu you will see the first field highlighted will be to return to current position or something similar. By pushing enter you are selecting this option and the unit will display your current position on the map screen.

Navionics card wont work


You most likely need to change the map data displayed.
The elite series won't change for you automatically. Lowrance Elite 7 HDI Hybrid Dual Imaging Fishfinder Chartplotter
here is a link to the elite 7 page where you can download a pdf owners manual.
go to the gps/map page on your unit. Find "chart data" on your menu.
select nation is as your chart data. Then you will be ableaving to see your map data.

Lowrance Elite 4X fish finder that reads between 1.5' and 2.5'


Hey Anon
The transducer installation is more important than anything.. next to correct wiring! You must make sure the mounting is good,,, if its outside the hull, make sure its sitting 1/16th below the hull with no obstructions.. if its inside the hull, the medium you used to fix the puck to the hull must be porosity free and the puck sitting as level with the WATER as possible..
Now, take the manual to the lake with you and DO NOTHING but read the manual and apply what you read to the unit,,, read -repeat - read-repeat.. forget about fishing... now read-repeat and learn... IF nothing seems to be reading correctly.. its probably the transducer installation.. YOU DID use a/the transducer specifically for this unit!!
