Question about Lowrance X96 200khz Fishfinder

Open Question

Cannot do hard or soft reset of X96. Unit worked fine for several months. It has always been attached to a Minkota trolling motor without problem. Now the depth indicator starts flashing, and freezes up, also the fish finder stops, and the unit only records water temp. Works in demo mode only. Have tried the unit without motor with no success.

SOURCE: Lowrance x96 does not function after 20 feet depth

Your transducer needs to be adjusted so the return signal can be picked up. Some of these have to be super tuned to receive the signal. Also the transducer may be moving ever so slightly when the boat is traveling at speed. You may have some water turbulence interference all contibute to signal return.

SOURCE: How do you get the fish to show up on the screen

Are you looking for the little fish symbols?
Press MENU, down arrow to SONAR FEATURES and press ENT. Arrow to FISH SYMBOLS and press ENT. Press EXIT twice. Any significant return in the water will now show up as a fish symbol.

Are you looking for the fish arches?
You won't get any arches unless the boat is moving and of course there are fish passing within the transducers signal. The shallower the water, the less area you are covering and less likely to get a fish return.

There is an OK guide to understanding what you see on the sonar screen at the link below. It if pretty technical but parts of it may help you out.

Why does the switch keep burning out?


call the 800 number on the motor for min kota they are great about ansering these questions. the first thought for me is that things are heating up due to too much amperage being drawn by the motor or a loose connection.you will needs to check the specs on that motor to tell and need to know what normal readings are which minkota will gladly supply you.

Hard foot pedal


On the base of the foot pedal there is a tensioner for the cable. Try loosening or tightening that first. If you still have the manual from when you bought it, it is explained in deatil in there. It's a common issue - not to worry!

Minn Kota 54lb hooked up backwards (Pos. to Neg) wont work


Unfortunately, those units have a circut board at the power source and if there is no fuse you more than likely destroyed that board. Take the casing apart (the part attached to the boat) it should be two halves. That inital board you see is probably what is destroyed. Of course before i did that I would look for an inline fuse near where the cables attach to the battery or under the unit in the nose of the boat. There is nearly always a fuse if it came from the factory or dealership with the unit so i'd play a little extra hide and go seek for that before doing anything else.

Best of Luck

I would check the battery. If you're using an old or under charged battery you will loose power for sure. Make sure you're also using a 12v deep cycle marine battery as this will ensure proper operation and a longer battery life.
