SOURCE: lowrance x135 not functioning properly

Had the same issue with another brand. Turned out the transducer cable was picking up noise from other cables (power, trolling mtr. etc). Try moving the transducer cable away from any other cables. I put the cable in a 1/4 " plastic housing up to the point where it was above deck and it stopped all the strange stuff. Not sure about the temp issue??

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.

SOURCE: I am replacing a Eagle Intellimap gps and eagle

Hi, Charlie!
I checked it out, and it turns out you can use the transducer of off your old 128 model.
Just unplug it from your current model, and plug it back into your EFE 480.

What I like about these newer fish finders is the fact that it also has gps built in to it, along with the maps for all of the USA, and the fact that it has a memory card slot, so that you can download new maps onto a memory card, pop it into the machine, and then it will update the maps !

Sure beats the old days where you had to send the unit in to a tech to have them install map updates.

Som yes, you can use the old one, and it should work with no problems.

Good luck to ya, and catch a big one for me !

I turn on the finder and i get a bunch of doted lines like mores code, This is in or out of the water,Is this the unit or the transducer


Hi Bill
It sounds very much to me like a cabling problem. I'd try cleaning all connections with silicone spray (safe for plastics) and give it another try. If you let me know the make of your finder, I'll certainly give it my best shot to help you out.
Good Luck

connect your laptop to an external monitor using a VGA cable to see if its display. if not, open the PC to check if the memory is properly working, if not, replace it. if the problem continue, check the system processor.

The plug going into the back of my Eagle 350c got hot and partially melted. It still works now but for how long I don't know. Can I splice a new plug in or do I have to buy a whole new transducer?


Well, if it is still working ok now with the partially melted plug, then the transducer itself sounds like it is fine... Attach a new plug and it should all work the same (just with a nice new plug).

Also make sure your power supply to the Fish Finder is properly fused.

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.

Lowrance depth finder missing adapter cable


I own a 1995 Four Winns and what you need is a Lowrance LSM-1 depth finder unit. It accepts the two pin lead from the transducer and send the depth reading to the dashboard display via the 6-pin connector. There is also a three wire harness (red/blk/wht) that connects to a power supply.

The reason I know all this is my depth finder fried a couple years ago so I removed the Lowrance LSM-1 from the boat in order to find a replacement. Unfortunately, this was an OEM part that is not available from Four Winns or any aftermarket source. Probably your best bet is to look in a boat salvage yard or purchase an aftermarket depth finder.

Lowarance fish finder


Firstly check you connections to your battery or any switches in line are secure and not corroded or damaged. If there are any loose connections then this could possibly be a reason, although unlikely, but its good to check those first anyway.

Next make sure the transducer/power cord is inserted fully into the back of the display unit. Again check for corrosion and good connection here.

The most likely porblem however is a sticky power button. If these are not freely engaging and retracting when pushed, the switch could be arcing causing the unit to turn itself on and off intermittently. You either need to pull the display unit apart and try to remedy the problem (if it is out of warranty and you are happy to do that yourself) or get a professional technician or Lowrance service centre (if still under warranty) to attempt the fix.
