SOURCE: My Lowrance LMS-337c df keeps going crazy.

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 st1:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}This could be caused by glitch in the operating systemsoftware or by low voltage due to a short in the unit or somewhere in the boatswiring. To troubleshoot the problem Iwould recommend the following steps.

  1. Try a soft reset
  2. If the problem resurfaces, try a hard reset
  3. Update the the operating system software

Soft Reset (Does not delete GPSData)
1. Turn unit OFF 2. Press and holdthe PAGES key
3. Press and hold the PWR key
4. Release both buttons when the USA map
Appears

Hard Reset (Deletes stored GPS Data
such as Waypoints and trails)
1. Back up any waypoints, routes,and trails that you want to save on a blank MMC card
2. Turn unit OFF
3. Press and hold the ZIN&ZOUTKeys at
the same time
4. Pressand hold the PWR key
5. Release both buttons when the USAmap
appears

To update the operating system software, check out this link:
Lowrance337c df update


If you don't have a card reader I can program an update card for you.

SOURCE: Eagle Seacharter 642c back light flickers all the time

Mine did the same two weeks out of warranty and I was told by NAVICO, the Australian importer and repairer, to throw it in the bin as the whole unit would need replacing, thanks for the expert advice NAVICO. It will be the last Eagle/Lorance product I will ever buy.

Machine does not acquire its GPS position. If it does it can take up to 45 mins to achive. Can I put an external antenna on it? The unit is used in an open boat, so has clear access to the sky, so should...


your antenna is probably original and obsolete see if you have a RayStar 120, if so, it is junk. The RayStar 125 is plug and play for you and sells around 300. Your GPS is a self contained receiver, that means it uses 12 V and output computer language. If you have no power to the seatalk antenna, you get nothing. If it is intermittent as you describe, 90% chanace it is the antenna, (mushroom or puck). 847-746-0100

Backlight flickers 2 years old to the date do you


Furuno has similar displays. I don't know if Eagle provides the same support but you may be able to find an actual schematic diagram technical manual from them if you ask nicely i don't know if Eagle has any government contracts but you can try and tell them you are with some government agency like DOD navy or coast guard or homeland security ;) and see if they will send you a PDF of the manual also try Retrevo.com they may have the techmanual on file. It sounds most likely like a connector problem between the LCD and the power supply. Does it only happen out on the water (vibration or shaking)?

Brother DCP8020D Document Feeder


Clean rubber rollers with metho, run a page by hand of laminate or stiff card threw the doc feeder. Stick it where the paper comes out of DF and ensure path is clear.

Push down on left side or tape down little black switch (rear left corner near glass)while trying to use df to confirm hinge aint the issue

If it is the rollers it should feed when paper is "helped a little" with hand at feed time

Ensure prints ok when using glass instead of df to know it is df problem

Gestetner DSC530 -- Auto Document Feeder


Normally the cable from the doc feeder has come out. Turn the machine off unplug the cable from the DF to the machine then reinstall it should click turn the machine on then try.

If this doesn't work open the DF cover and check that there are the paper detect fins also when the cover is open then the machine should register a cover open this will tell you if the DF is recognized or not.
