    I think I fixed it, With the unit off, I held in the Page button and at the same time held the power up button until the not for navigation screen popped up, This was supposed to have reset(reboot) the unit. I now longer have the problem. Also they say that you can hold the zoom in and out together and the power up button, this will also help BUT you will lose your saved items including waypoints.

    I have a similar problem with my 332C and when I did the recommended fix nothing changed it continues to loose the debt. The screen will go from 0 to 500 feet then goes white with little small specks and on the right side of it will go up and down the debt scale. It just keeps doing that, then all of a sudden, it comes back on working fine for awhile. I thought it was just the transducer but when I put it on my old black and white unit, it works just fine.

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.

My Eagle 642C iGPS does not work with Lakemaster chip


If you do not have the most current software upgrade, that may be the problem. Go to www.eaglenav.com. If a more current software is available, download per their instructions. Worth a try. That unit should display LakeMaster digital chars.

Built in transducer is not picking up/transferring depth to graph


I havew a Minn Kota trolling motor on a Z21 Ranger. Minn Kota has a built in (puck type) transducer on the motor. I have a lowrance 135x on the front. The lowrance will read the temp but will blink the depth. I switched out the depth finder with another 135x with the same results. I have a 522c gps unit networked together and mounted on the console that works fine. Any suggestions on the problem with the 135x?

I had the same problem and got the transducer changed. It now works perfectly. That could be the problem you are having... bad transducer.

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.

Lowrance LCX-19C GPS Receiver Problem


It sounds like you may have to send it out for service, but before you you do there are a few things you can try.

Low voltage can cause erratic behavior. Since you already wired directly to the battery, check the plug for corrosion.

Try unplugging the transducer cable to see if the display still behaves erratically. You wont see depth readings but you should still see the screen going black. If no erratic behavior with transducer unplugged then problem is in the transducer cable or the plug. A common source of failure is at the plug because the added stress of plugging and unplugging cables can cause the socket to twist slightly which can cause a short.

Make sure you have the latest software update.

How to see if your LCX-19C is already using version 1.8.0 software:
  1. Press the MENU button twice on your LCX-19C.
  2. Select SYSTEM SETUP.
  3. Select SOFTWARE INFORMATION.
  4. The software version for your unit is located under the line that says "LCX-19C" (ex. "Version 1.8.0").
  5. If your version is the same version listed above, there is no need to download the software.
If it is lower than 1.8.0 you can download the update from this link: LCX-19C UPDATE
Copy it onto a blank MMC card and install it in your GPS. The GPS should prompt you on how to install the update.

If you need to send the unit in for service click this link: LOWRANCE SERVICE

Good luck!
