    The sensor is either to close to the motor if mounted in board, or seeing air or bubbles if mounted outboard

When we are deep water (500 ft or deeper) the fish finder will display 3.5-10 ft. and won't show the fish or shows tons of fish. Are we able to set the depth that we would like to see eg: if we are...


Im not familiar with your particular unit but you should be using a low frequency transducer for water over 500'; something like a 50 kHz transducer or a dual frequency transducer like a 50/200kHz for detail with the high freq. but increased depth range on the lower frequency. As far as setting it to 250 ft, you should be able to use the range feature and adjust the maximum to 250'. typically the factory default is automatic so it will caonstantly adjust the range based on the maximum current depth.

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?

Can not get off simulate


Assuming you're talking about a Depth Finder or a GPS... if it's depth finder, I had a similar problem on a Humminbird Depth Finder... the issue was holding down the power button too long. If you push it long enough for the system to light up and let go, it should solve the problem. Holding it down longer takes it into Simulation. Hope that helps.

Marine Faria depth finder, with thru the hull transducer.


I'm having the exact same problem. I spoke with the service manager at Faria (Ted) and he was thinking that as long as the gauge is showing a reading, it should default to reading the depth. I'll probably send the guage in to FARIA - they'll repair it for $55. You bring up a good point - maybe the transducer is bad? I put a call in to the Tedmeister to see what he thinks. I'll post if he sheds any light.
