20 Most Recent Lowrance ELITE 5X 5 83/200 A powerful 500W RMS fishfinder that Questions & Answers


It is an entry level fish finder. It doesn't have GPS tracking which is used these days to mark distance traveled against time to display the speed. 'Old fish finders had a wheel on the transducer (yours doesn't), and nothing in the manual leads me to believe that your unit displays speed. The only measure of speed is in relation to how fast the chart speed is. I am a Humminbird person, but that is what I see after studying the unit.

A transducer does not give "colors".. the unit its plugged into provides the colors..
50khz for deep water.. 200khz for shallow water..
A transducer simply sends and receives signals to and from whatever is on the bottom of the lake...

For deep water you will want to run the lowest hertz setting. For example, if you have the option for 80hZ or 600hZ, then the 80hZ would be for deep water and the 600hZ would be for shallow water.

Reset use a soft reboot. Or hard reset make sure you back up all your settings on fish finder with chip or home computer. OK guys so the first thing you wanna do when resetting your unit whether it's soft reset or hard reset we're gonna start with a soft reset which is gonna save any GPS data anything like that so we're gonna head over hold the Power & Page button press the power button we're going to go over and press power button but I'm at the unit but up until you see the warning screen where you have to except the depth on reset Can see we still have our Saved waypoints. OK now I'm gonna show you how to do a hard reset again turn the unit off you should always use the power key never just flip the main power switch to off then press and hold the plus minus key as well as the power key let go of the power key keep holding plus minus until the warning screen comes up in a hard reset your going to delete all data on this year it's gonna be like we just bought it went to the store and bought it and cam home with know data whatsoever no settings nothing OK I warning screen has came up we can let go of her buttons and press except start demo. OK now I'm gonna show you how to do a hard reset again turn the unit off you should always use the power key never just flip the main power so that our unit is off then press and hold the plus & minus key as well as the power key don't let go with the power key holder plus minus until the warning screen comes up and a hard reset is going to delete all data on this year it's gonna be like-you just bought it went to the store and bought it and brought it home no data whatsoever no settings nothing OK or warning screen has came up we can let go over buttons and press except start demo now. OK so now you should not see any saved data so that's how you do a hard reset and a self reset. Load your Data card and shut off the power key. Then turn back on and follow screen steps. This should fix you issues.

Contact supplier for support and possibly replacement for a faulty unit.

Make sure the transducer is pointing directly down when the boat is in the water. Also, this may help

Need to contact the manufacturer for support on this. It may not be fixable.

Lowrance Boating | Answered on Jun 10, 2019


Probably time for a new one. Harsh conditions like on a boat causes the electronics to fail after awhile

Lowrance Boating | Answered on Jun 05, 2019


Check the Positive and negitive terminals It may not be seeing the voltage it needs , I have a strike 7 and it did a similar thing , as soon as the load from the transducer is on it wont load ,, Mine was the dirty Neg cable to the bus bar under the dash
