Don't quite understand what your saying far as the question..when you click the page button on your unit does it show structure scan on the page and if so you go into structure scan and its not showing structure on the screen ?? maybe you need to (fine tune ) your unit or check your transducer to see if its working

The Depth & temp come from two different sensors. Check your coax cable to the transducer (the lager oval piece), the connector, and the transducer for cracks /breaks in insulation. Good luck.

SOURCE: I NEED REPLACEMENT ROLLERS ON MY LOWRANCE X16

We have a x-16 that hasn't got 10 hour total on it. It was used on Sheriff Dept rescue boat and has been storage since late 80's. 25.00 and you pay shipping buys the unit and a case of paper for it. It doesn't have the power cord or transducer with it. That was misplaced years ago.

SOURCE: How do you get the fish to show up on the screen

Are you looking for the little fish symbols?
Press MENU, down arrow to SONAR FEATURES and press ENT. Arrow to FISH SYMBOLS and press ENT. Press EXIT twice. Any significant return in the water will now show up as a fish symbol.

Are you looking for the fish arches?
You won't get any arches unless the boat is moving and of course there are fish passing within the transducers signal. The shallower the water, the less area you are covering and less likely to get a fish return.

There is an OK guide to understanding what you see on the sonar screen at the link below. It if pretty technical but parts of it may help you out.

SOURCE: Lowrance 3500 Digital Depth Guage flashed 0.5 continuously

If you have a glue in style transducer, be sure that the fluid has not leaked out of the cup. Otherwise, there really is no effective way to troubleshoot those without having known good parts to swap and try. If the cup is empty, it will need to be resealed with silicone (100% silicone) and then refilled with mineral oil.

How do i find water depth


Water depth should show automatically on your sonar page.
if it does not then either you have selected "stop sonar" under your sonar options or you have opted to turn off the depth displayou so the numbers don't show up.
if you areally viewing your GPS or split screen sonar/GPS page, sometimes the depth display is not visible on these pages unless you specifically instruct the unit to display it.

Y cant i mount my structure scan transducer on the bottom of the boat


This is what the manual says:
The StructureScan transducer can be mounted on the transom,
jackplate, step or directly to your boat's hull.
When mounting it directly to the hull, you must purchase a high-
quality, marine grade above- or below-waterline sealant/adhesive
compound.

I have a lowrance LMS 520c and I never pick up any fish. it does show the bottom


read the book that came with it you got to understand how it works and know how to set your unit before you can understand how it works and what you need to do to make it work and to get to what settings you want ..a fish finder is like a computer you got to program it to your likings .. I have a hd 10 structure scan on mine .. .now that's a nightmare to set but the book tells you everything you need to do and how to do it and how to get what your looking for and how to get to it

The GPS component of my Lowrance Elite-5 Gold is malfunctioning about 50% of the time.


Hey Les, Since you have replace both the unit and transducer, you have eliminated/diagnosed most of your problem.. Its in the wiring... sometime when I am in full GPS mode I get erroneous depth readings..?? Have you tried a different GPS module (the "puck")?

Got a HDS 5 and im getting bad or false on my sonar when traveling showing fish and structure.When trying to hold ground and im backing up it doesn't even read?i have it on auto sensitivity


Check the mounting and cable connection of the transducer on the stern. If loose will tilt during movement, in reverse wakes from the prop. CAREFULLY check unit during these conditions. The transducer needs to be completely submerged. Good Luck.

My fishfinder will not continue to read shallow depths as well as in shallow depths when drifting and occasionally running across the water. My unit is a lowrance 522c color gps/fishfinder.


Hello. Your observation is spot on and it is actually a characteristic that is always true when using sonar. Yes, your Lowrance uses the same sonar as a nuclear powered submarine does. The two factors you focus on, water depth and boat speed are perhaps, the two biggest factors when it comes to the quality of the fishfinder. The boat's engine should be in gear at an idle or just above. Experiment with your boat to find the best throttle location for good arches. Usually, a slow trolling speed works best. The depth of the fish can determine if the fish will arch on the screen. If the fish is in shallow water, the fish is not in the cone angle very long, making it difficult to show an arch. Typically, the deeper the fish, the easier it is to show an arch.

I have a Lowrance 7200C GPS (marine) unit with a "Navico 041-0680-17 chip. It doesnt show the depth contours, is there an upgrade or do I buy another chip? and if so, what chip will be best for my unit?...


Not showing the Depth Contours usually means it doesnt have that programmed on the chip.

The best Chips Ive ever seen, used or worked with for the Lowrance's are the "Navionics" and Fishing Hot Spots. Both can be obtained from Cabela's...either retail or online. And normally go from 99bucks for last years maps to 199 for this years. Hope this helps.
