My Lowrance lcx-15mt backlight does not light up. I did not get help from the company, they do not make parts anymore. Is there a person or place that could fix this problem?

Just make sure your power is good and that all of the power connections are clean. Install software updates from if you don't already have the latest.

If all of that checks out, take the rebate letter that Lowrance will offer you since they can't fix it any longer and think about the new fishfinder you want to buy. They won't make you send that LCX-15 back so if it is usable at all you can still go with it.

There is no repair facility anywhere that will be able to fix this cheap enough for you. I guess you could check with some electronic repair shops and see if they could take a look, but most likely wouldn't be worth the'd be better off putting the money into a new unit.

SOURCE: I get a message on the screen of my LCX-15MT

To get the updates, start with a blank card. The first time you use it you will plug it into the card reader. It may ask you to format here. If so click "OK". If not: Go to "My Computer" - it will show up there as a storage device. Right click and select format. It will in effect "erase" the card and "prep" it for further use.

Follow the prompts. When done you should be able to go to the site you wish to download from and when you click on the file it will ask if you want to save it. "Yes" to your "Desktop". Once done you can open "my computer" - double click on the card reader. It will open with nothing in it. Reduce the screen pic for the reader so you can also see your desktop. Put cursor on desktop file - Right click and hold the button down while you drag the file to the card reader file and let go of the button. Click "Copy Here". Now you should be able to take the card and insert it into the display to run the actual update.

My LCX15 MT will not turn on

If the power connections are good and clean, you can get a volt meter to test power through the power cable. Unplug the power cable and test for 12VDC across the two big female pins. If you are getting good power, then the LCX-15MT is toast and it will need to be replaced. If you can get a hold of Lowrance support at 800-324-1356 or email at you can get a rebate toward a current model.

Turning on my Lowrance LCX 111HD fish locator creates static with my ICOM M502 VHF Marine radio.

Hello LJones0455. From your detailed attempts there are few options. Position the transducers one foward one aft. Connect the negitives of the battiers to the boat still route both positive & negitive wiring to all devices. Check the continunity of your transducers include flexing while ohming. Let me know of the results.
