Question about Lowrance LCX-19C GPS Receiver
After being turned on after a few moments the screen begins to get erratic and starts to show inaccurate depths or the screen almost goes black and starts to show 1 or 2 feet of water. It didnt always do this. I tried to isolate the power going to the unit by running directly to the batt. and shutting down the motor. Curious how to find out what is at fault ( unit, trans., trans. cable, electrical or something with way the trans. is mounted). It worked fine for 2 summers then went out to the dock one day and seems to be acting funny.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also wanted to know if I could send the unit to lowrance to have it tested.
It sounds like you may have to send it out for service, but before you you do there are a few things you can try.
Low voltage can cause erratic behavior. Since you already wired directly to the battery, check the plug for corrosion.
Try unplugging the transducer cable to see if the display still behaves erratically. You wont see depth readings but you should still see the screen going black. If no erratic behavior with transducer unplugged then problem is in the transducer cable or the plug. A common source of failure is at the plug because the added stress of plugging and unplugging cables can cause the socket to twist slightly which can cause a short.
Make sure you have the latest software update.
How to see if your LCX-19C is already using version 1.8.0 software:
Copy it onto a blank MMC card and install it in your GPS. The GPS should prompt you on how to install the update.
