Be sure you turn the contrast down. We had ours up high and we couldn't read anything. I brought the contrast down and we could read it even in bright sunlight.

My Mark 4 sometimes shows incorrect depths. The transducer has not moved and no problem with electrical. One point it is working fine, the screen then runs multiple vertical lines and the depth chan


Take note if when the vertical lines appear on the screen if the depth numbers begin to flash. If this is the case then the transducer has lost bottom contact and the unit is trying to reacquire bottom contact. If the transducer is parallel to the bottom of the lake while your boat is not moving then, the next time you have it on the trailer, turn your unit on and go listen and or feel the transducer to see if you can hear and or feel the tick or sonar ping. If you can't your transducer may be faulty. If the loss of bottom contact occurs when you are moving it will happen at a certain speed. This is the result of air bubbles passing under the transducer and disrupting the sonar signal causing loss of bottom contact.

I have a Frigidaire Beverage Center Model FFBC46F5LS It was installed on Friday and worked fine until today (Sunday) where it has started to beep constantly. If I press the light button at the bottom of...


I recently purchased a Frigidaire Beverage Center and had the same constant beeping issue as strivieri. I found my problem to be the door sensor. The door sensor is located on the lower bottom right of the unit and there is a metal plate mounted on the swinging door that is suppose to push that sensor in when the door is closed. However, this was poorly designed as it fails to do its task. I had a few adhesive floor protectors laying around that I used to stick to that metal plate that gave it the extra thickness needed to push in the door sensor when closing the door.

I hope this helps anyone else there having the same issue.

When at speed i tend to lose sight of the bottom it becomes very broken. Also the depth reading takes a while to record depth.


What you are experiencing sounds like air bubbles crossing the face of the transducer. If you have a transom mount transducer check the face of the transducer. Make sure that it is clean. Also make sure the front of the transducer is a tiny bit lower than the back. The digital readout on the screen will only happen when you have a strong signal of the bottom.

My depth finder loses its depth reading at about


You need to set the transducer lower. When at speed, the hull of the ship raises up out of the water and hence your transducer is probably not deep enough at these times to give a proper reading.

Eagle Fisheasy No screen display and only beeps


You could have blown the transducer.....it is supposed to be in water before you turn it on. A 5 gal. bucket inside the boat would be fine for when out the water. Put the transducer in the 5gal bucket with water and try again. You may have to get another. sorry.

Loses the depth after around 60 feet.


Is the transducer face clean? Fouling and barnacles can cause poor depth readings. Also, a low power output from transmitter or poor sensitivity of the receiver (both internal), or a broken transducer cable connection (usually accompanied by heavy noise being painted on screen). With your ear in the water, fairly close to transducer (6-10 ft., you should hear a clear tick-tick-tick sound as it transmits on a medium depth range.. No power adjustment is available in the menus, but the unit does transmit at a slower rate, with wider (stronger) pulses on the deeper ranges.

383c transducer gives nothing but noisy red feedback at medium or high speeds


If it works at low speeds fine but has problems at higher speeds, basically you need to lower the transducer down further as it is lifted by the boat at higher speeds, or is getting caught in the turbulence of surface water created at higher speed. Lower the transducer a half inch at a time and re-test.
