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.

What's wrong? My Lowrance Mark 5x dsi depth finder flashes or pulsates a depth of 60 ft. All the time.


Since the unit powers up, we can pretty much eliminate a power supply problem.

I would start by carefully inspecting your transducer lead for kinks, crushing etc. Assuming the cable is OK, clean and lubricate (silicone spray, safe for plastics) the cable end and where the cable connects to the unit.

Hope this is helpful to you.

Lowrance 3500 Digital Depth Guage flashed 0.5 continuously


If you have a glue in style transducer, be sure that the fluid has not leaked out of the cup. Otherwise, there really is no effective way to troubleshoot those without having known good parts to swap and try. If the cup is empty, it will need to be resealed with silicone (100% silicone) and then refilled with mineral oil.

Lowrance depth finder missing adapter cable


I own a 1995 Four Winns and what you need is a Lowrance LSM-1 depth finder unit. It accepts the two pin lead from the transducer and send the depth reading to the dashboard display via the 6-pin connector. There is also a three wire harness (red/blk/wht) that connects to a power supply.

The reason I know all this is my depth finder fried a couple years ago so I removed the Lowrance LSM-1 from the boat in order to find a replacement. Unfortunately, this was an OEM part that is not available from Four Winns or any aftermarket source. Probably your best bet is to look in a boat salvage yard or purchase an aftermarket depth finder.

Built in transducer is not picking up/transferring depth to graph


I havew a Minn Kota trolling motor on a Z21 Ranger. Minn Kota has a built in (puck type) transducer on the motor. I have a lowrance 135x on the front. The lowrance will read the temp but will blink the depth. I switched out the depth finder with another 135x with the same results. I have a 522c gps unit networked together and mounted on the console that works fine. Any suggestions on the problem with the 135x?

Hi- I have a 1996 Four winns boat with the same problem. I believe we are missing an adapter cable which goes from the depth cable to the instrument panel. I have not been able to locate this cable yet. If I find it I will let you know and can you do the same for me if you locate one?

Lowrance x96 does not function after 20 feet depth


Your transducer needs to be adjusted so the return signal can be picked up. Some of these have to be super tuned to receive the signal. Also the transducer may be moving ever so slightly when the boat is traveling at speed. You may have some water turbulence interference all contibute to signal return.
