Ability to read the bottom at speed depends on several variables. Output strength of the sounder trasducer (usually need a 1 KW to get constant bottom readings in deeper water), placement and fairing of the tranducer and any bottom appendages that may create disturbed water (air) over the transducer face. Transducers can also go bad over time.

I recommend you Give Furuno a call they have a great service Tech dept. Its free.

Hi,

Thanks for contacting Fixya.com.
The FCV585 automatically knows if it connected to 600w or 1kw. That setting has to do with the accu-fish feature. Speaking of the accu-fish feature, make sure it is turned off as it will use both the 50 and 200hz even if you have the unit set to one frequency.

What mode do you have the FCV-585 operating in? If in auto, it will automatically set gain as needed to show the bottom. To actually see a few fish you'll have to operate in some sort of zoom mode since in the full depth view there are too few pixels to show more than a dot (for example 600 vertical pixels showing 600 feet of water is just one pixel per foot of water, hence one fish will likely light just one pixel if at all, while a big dense school of fish will light up a 'cloud').
Is your transducer mounted properly, i.e. away from turbulence and angled properly?
Operating in AUTO mode is not going to do it for you. Your best performance at the limits of your machine's capabilities will only be achieved by fine tuning your gear in the MANUAL mode. You must set your RANGE manually to the desired depth. You must set your machine to 50kHz (or both 50/200) for the extreme depths (from a recreational point of view) you are interested in fishing. You must manually adjust your GAIN to higher and higher levels after you stop your boat out on the grounds. You may find that ZOOMING in on a narrow depth range of perhaps 30 feet will help. In this mode, your screen will display the bottom and only the water column 30 feet above it.

You may have good equipment, but there are limits. You may be expecting too much detail (fish) at the depths you are in. Adjust your gain and range manually and you really ought to be able to get a reading in stuff so deep you wouldn't even think about fishing in. It comes to a point and depth when auto functions are of a hindrance. Same goes with radar.


Let us know if you have something more to know else please accept the suggestion.
Thank You.

Pentax optio e50


Try messing around with the settings so different pictures are achieved. is there flash? (I personally never use flash in any pictures I take). Just setting the ISO to manual doesn't do anything, There are specific values, setting it to a lower may help, there's also white balance and exposure you should take in account. The camera also isn't that great of a camera and I'd suggest getting a new one.

Adjust depth on pneumatic stapler


I have noticed that many nailers do not have a way to adjust the depth. Usually there is a thumb screw under the trigger or on the side of the safety foot. If no visual way to adjust, you must get creative. The bumper stops the driver at the bottom of the cylinder. Adding layer of rubber (inner tube or similar) under the bumper will cause the driver extend less and shaving the bumper will cause it to drive deeper. Another method if to add material to tip of safety to space gun away from work (less deep, using various thickness of spacers like used on flooring nailers) or grind the tip of the driver (cant reverse but if driver is too long grind away) . Buy a spare driver and make adjustment to tip for when you need different setting. Good luck

Furuno fcv-667.When powered on good screen comes on for 1-2 seconds, then goes to a solid blue screen


1. Check that you have not altered settings - HUE, that is, background colour.
2. Go to menu - select FACTORY SETTINGS and try that. The unit may go back and rectify.
3. Check depth setting - if greater than depth operating, will show just blank screen.
Hope this might be helpful
