Are saying you can't read the screen at night, or is it hard to read the screen anytime?

If you tap the power key, you should here a beep and the screen should get brighter. If you hear the beep and there is no light, then the internal light has failed.

If you can't read the screen in normal light conditions try viewing it under a bright light at various angles. You may notice that the screen is just barely visible. If this is the case you may be able to fix the problem by adjusting the contrast. Try tapping bthe power key and then tap the right or left side of the track pad. It may take several taps to see the results. If left or right doesn't work, try up or down.

A "soft reset" can be accomplished by pressing and hold "Pages" key and press and hold "PWR" key till USA map comes on , then release both. A "hard reset" requires press and hold both "Z in" and "Z out" buttons and press and hold "PWR" button releasing all three when USA map appears.

Hi,

Yes you have to hook up the red wires together to the + and both black ones to the negative, otherwise the antenna won't be supply in current , and don't forget to insert behind the red wire a fuse and a switch to avoid to discharge your battery .

I turn my power source on and my screen flashes like it's not reading anything from my transducer but the transducer is new.


Has this unit worked in the past, or are the transducer and the unit itself new? Is this a Lowrance LMS-240 as indicated before your question?

Please let me know and I can help you out here.

Thanks, just reply here,
Tim

The LGC-2000 is bad would be the most likely cause, but if this started right after you changed the cables, Try connecting the NMEA 2000 network to a different power source than the main power. If you still have the original cables, and you didn't have the problem before, try using those again to make sure there isn't anything wrong with any of the new cables.

But most likely, the LGC-2000 is toast and you will want to contact Lowrance support to see about getting it repaired/replaced.

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 http://www.lowrance.com/en/Downloads/Product-Software-Updates/ 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 money...you'd be better off putting the money into a new unit.

had same problem with lms337. i had upgraded the unit but had not upgraded the lms2000 gps module. i was turning the isolator on in the boat which powers up gps module, if the lms337 is not powered up as well the gps unit goes to sleep. the upgrade fixes it by checking that the unit has not been turned on periodically. otherwise as soon as you power up gps module also turn on lms337. lowrance product support sorted this for me.
