Lowrance 332C power problem

I have a lowrance 332C having the exact same problem. Unit would automatically turn itself on when I turned on the console main power switch for the boat. Then the screen would stay in full bright and I would not be able to dim it. Last week while driving down the river it completely shut off and has not come on since. It was over 100 outside when this happened. Have verified that the unit is receiving power through a voltage tester. This thing is a piece of junk and would not recommend it to anyone.

i've repaird this by installing a secondary powerswitch and disconnecting the power switch on the keypad. It's an involved repair but it can be done.

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.

Hello
I don't know whether you have made a factory reset to this device or not. If not, set it first and see whether it helps you. To make it factory settings:
[1] Press 'MENU""MENU" (down arrow to system setup) "ENT" (down arrow to RESET options/ ENT
[2] The unit asks if you want to reset all the options. Press [<---] to YES and then ENT. All options are reset, and the unit reverts back to map page at 4000 miles zoom range. Any recorded sonar logs of GPS data will be unchanged. OK.

I have a lcx 110 lowrance graph that wont power up at all. i replaced all the wiring to the unit and tested the plug at the unit all of that is good i also cleaned the connections still nothing. any ideas?


I have found several units that have the same problem. All turned out to be a defective keypad. And almost all are specifically the power button. Not something Lowrance will repair. I've been purchasing some of these units for parts. If you still have it I might be interested. jadamec@yahoo.com

Our unit will not power up


Hi urcvrdha,

You have an elaborate unit! I like these. Your problem sounds more electrical than software related. Try taking all power off the unit for about 30 minutes, then powering up again. Of course, check your fuses. If you get the unit back up to the main menu, and things are not working properly, go to the various "reset" options in your manual for that mode of operation.

If it does not succeed in getting power, I recommend contacting your local Marine/Lorrance dealer for service.

If you don't have your manual handy, download one here:

I hope this adds a little information to your problem search. Thanks.

Regards, Bill

All Lowrance systems have an in-line 3 Amp fuze. My guess is that when it broke and fell off the fuze shorted out. Look back the power sypply to the unit and you will find the in-line fuze. Replsacit with a new 3 Amp fuze and you should be up and running.

Hi,when i switch on my lms-332c the map does not come up on the screen.If I remove and replace the map card it works perfectly. Can I fix this? regards nigel


I am guessing that the card you are using is a NAVIONICS chart? There have been some Lowrance units that were made around the same time that have had problems recognizing a Navionics chart right from power up.

Make sure the LMS-332 has the latest firmware version which can be downloaded from http://www.lowrance.com/en/Products/Marine/Full-Size-SonarGPS-Chartplotter-Combos/LMS-332C/Downloads/LMS-332C-Software-Update/

If the update doesn't help, this is going to be a compatibility problem with the LMS-332 and that particular card. You will need to replace the card or upgrade to a newer unit...but probably can just get used to removing and replacing the card when you turn the unit on.

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.

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.
