The transdoucer (sensor) may have been damaged. Try a new one. It can happen that there is a problem with the unit itself, but I am strong to think it is a defective transdoucer.

When turning on the Lowrance the depth indicator will only register 0.0 and continues flashing the number. The Lowrance is a LCX-17M. We tryed the Lowrance on another boat with a working transducer...


here is the link to your the lowrance web site. the trouble shooting guide says that if you tried to it on another boat than you might need to take it in for service. but there is a section that explains how to do a soft reset on the unit. you might try that.

ENDURA POWER BUTTON BROKEN


Sounds like the power button is pulled loose from the circuit board or the power switch went bad for some reason. You can't check this out as it is sealed to be waterproof and opening it violates the warranty. The only way to address this would be to send in to Lowrance Customer Service.

This should not be a common problem and should be covered by manufacturers warranty if still within the 1 yr warranty period. If out of warranty, Lowrance Customer Service should still be able to replace or repair it for some sort of cost.

To speak with US based Lowrance Customer Service, call toll-free at 1-800-324-1356, Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:45 pm Central. Or email them at products@lowrance.com with problem, product model and serial number (located between the batteries in the battery compartment). CS On Hold times range between 0 and 4 minutes right now with Monday mornings being their busiest times.

Lowrance iway 250c wont charge?


The rechargeable battery is more than likely the problem and will need replaced, or the charging circuits are not functioning, "less likely"

Back light will not work iway 500


Unfortunately, the 500c is obsolete now and Lorance cannot repair the LCD screens anymore. Your only option may be to call Lowrance at (800) 324-1356 ad try to get an uprade to the newer iWay 600c. It's far from free, but less than you could buy a new unit for.

Lowrance globalmap 2400 on/off button stuck, unit tries to turn on then screen is blank, tried wiggling back and forth no luck, should i send it in for repair and where to...live in carroll county, md....


You can try a hard reset:

1. Turn unit off
2. Press and hold ZIN, ZOUT, and PWR until you get the "WARNING, DO NOT RELY..." message.

If that doesn't work, try installing the latest updates from http://www.lowrance.com/en/Downloads/Product-Software-Updates/

If it still doesn't work, and you can't get through to Lowrance by phone, try emailing them by going to http://www.lowrance.com/en/Support/Product-Support/Contact/

It probably won't be worth repairing the unit. You will be better off putting that money into a current unit which will be much better than the 2400 and probably less expensive than the 2400 was when it was new.

Lowrance 330c screen says '' boot failed''


Try a hard reset:

1. Turn the LMS-330 off
2. Press and hold the ZIN, ZOUT, and PWR buttons
3. Release the three buttons once you see the "warning, do not rely..." message appear

If you get that far, the problem is solved. If you get boot failed again, try installing the latest update which can be downloaded from http://www.lowrance.com/en/Downloads/Product-Software-Updates/

If you still get boot failed, you will need to get the LMS-330 repaired/replaced. You can contact Lowrance support at 800-324-1356 or email them by going to http://www.lowrance.com/en/Support/Product-Support/Contact/

Lowrance 3300c still playing up


John, my 330c was doing the same thing until I found a short in a totally separate system. It was a speaker for the stereo. As soon as I fixed it, the flashing problem went away.

We have a X23 Lowrance. It was working OK then it just went to flashing 0.5m with bits of blue colour over the screen. We have switched it off and then on again, but still flashing 0.5m. Can you help?


First check and clean the transducer. Make sure it's level and clean of any dirt oil or fuel. You can do a hard or soft reset also but you'll lose all stored data and it will reset all of your settings. You can find out how to do a hard or soft reset on Lowrance hompage. www.lowrance.com I would get you the exact address but their web site is a little messed up this morning.
