SOURCE: 4150sx finder erratic depth

I had the same problem last time I was out in shallow water (in less than 2 metres of water) and I suspect that the problem was weed wrapped around the transducer but won't know for sure until I take it out on the water again. I had another problem re water temp which I'll enter separately.

SOURCE: wire on depth finder has been piched, can tou

Yes, you can. I have done it several times. Keep the separated wires fairly short. You can pick the braided (shield) wire apart with a pin or such.

SOURCE: My depth finder loses its depth reading at about

You need to set the transducer lower. When at speed, the hull of the ship raises up out of the water and hence your transducer is probably not deep enough at these times to give a proper reading.

The depth finder on my elite 5 Lowrance blinks if I go over 14 mph. And the screen gets very hot after a few minutes of run time?


Hey Robert,
the blinking is usually the result of the transducer losing contact with the water..
As far as the screen getting hot.. that is not good.. do you have this unit mounted in dash? It needs some ~cooling.. just some airflow..

Lowrance troubleshooting


Pay attention if depth readings shift during times when moving from spot to spot at higher speeds. If this is the case then you have air bubbles disrupting your sonar signal causing inaccurate readings or a loss of bottom lock for the unit. If over this weeds in shallow water, this at times creates havoc with sonar readings because of the wide variance of signal returns.
check the voltage at the head unit.You should have a minimum of 11.7 volts. 12.5 to 13.5 is optimal
lower power input can affect the overall performance of your unit.

The GPS component of my Lowrance Elite-5 Gold is malfunctioning about 50% of the time.


Hey Les, Since you have replace both the unit and transducer, you have eliminated/diagnosed most of your problem.. Its in the wiring... sometime when I am in full GPS mode I get erroneous depth readings..?? Have you tried a different GPS module (the "puck")?

Hello! Do you have the PDF users guide for your unit? I'm looking at a copy in the troubleshooting section...I don't want to cover information you have already looked at or tried...Since I do not know if you have that manual I'll give you a few items to check...

Measure the battery at the units power connector...Must be at least 11 volts DC...In portable mode it uses 8 D cell batteries= 12 volts
Make certain the Transducer is securely connected...
Did you use the in-line fuse supplied with the unit?...
Try the Manual Depth Range...First turn off Auto Depth Range...From the sonar Page Hit MENU...Down-arrow to Auto Depth Range...Hit ENT...Hit Up-Arrow to Depth Range...Hit ENT..
And the Depth Scale Range appears...Up-Arrow or Down-Arrow to select a different depth range...Hit Exit...The minimum depth the unit can read is 5 feet...

If you do not have the PDF guide, here is the link...

My Pioneer VSX-517 receiver will not power up. Have checked power cord & fuse.


good start. the next is to chech standby voltage 5 volt, that goes to the microprocessor which will enable you to turn-on the main relay(12 volt)that powers up the whole unit. so if you cannot hear a click when you push the power button the the standby transformer capacitor and the 5 volt needs to verified. if this is good the relay - 12 volt and if this is also good the micro is bad. oops-hope it doesnt come to that. the micro is located on the circuit board mounted on the faceplat-a large many pins IC.

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.

Depth finder comes on then goes off


It sounds like some power saver feature on the battery or in the unit. Check with hummingbird, they should have an 800#.
