Question about Lowrance Iway 500c GPS Receiver

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.

Screen keeps flashing green-blue-red


The manual for the monitor can be found here (
Mitsubishi DiamondPoint V50LCD User Manual ) The specific Red Green Blue cycle isn't noted.
:
  1. I'd start with toggling on the on screen set-up display. if that comes up and is legible, then you know that the screen is working.
  2. What is your video set up to push to the V50? If it's not a supported resolution, the display may respond this way. try downgrading it something like VGA (640x480) and see if that works. (The max resolution shown in the manual is 1024 x 768, so don't go higher than that. It's also 24 bit color (8 bits each for R,G,B, so don't try to push 32 bit color to it)>
  3. Set the output to your primary monitor to 1024 x 768, thousands of colors. Make sure the monitor sees it OK. Now you know the first monitor and cable are OK. Now switch the cable to the V50 monitor. Do you get a signal now? Then the display works. Try putting your primary display on the second cable. Does it pick up anything now? No. Maybe a bad cable.
  4. You can try swapping the cable going to the V50 to go from your primary monitor output port on the computer to your primary monitor. if the primary monitor works OK, then the cable is good.
  5. Depending on the computer system you're on, make sure that you at least have a generic monitor driver installed for the V50 output. Ideally, get the driver for the monitor You can get the driver here (
Mitsubishi Monitor drivers ) amongst other places.

Good luck!

If you have an older graphics card the signal will still be searching for a monitor. Contact Viewsonic and they will get you a non DDC adapter.

Sony Ericsson W580i screen went blank


Ok, my phone had the same problem. I took the face plate off and the screen out and there's actually a little connector that connects to a board behind the screen(can come unplugged for replacement). I fiddled around a little with it and it worked fine. about a week or 2 later it happened again. I tried fixing it again and it would just flash white>black>lines>white, repeat. I know my phone's taken a bit of abuse, dropped down a road, soaked in rain, but it always worked after. These phone screens aren't meant to take abuse. Problem; the phone screen died. Solution; get a new screen.

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.

Lowrance 500c touchscreen


My iway 500c kinda had the same problem. At first while driving, the screen would go from 3d to always north to always up and be switching screens 3 to 4 times a second. It would finally go back to normal. After about a month of this the touch screen would work intermittently. It finally quit working completely on a trip to Texas. When I got home I called Lowrance and the said they would replace it for $350. I already spent over $600 for it. I took the thing apart and found the grounding screw to the touch screen was really loose. I tightened it and now its working again for now. I am not happy with Lowrance support.
