I have the same problem on my unit and was told the same after I stayed on hold 38 minutes for tech support at lowrance. This is the second Lowrance that they would not fix and only offer a "discount" on a replacement. This company can KISS my behind. What a scam!!!

I too suffered the upside down inside out display issue. Lowrance told me to give the back of the unit a whack. Since no one would repair it, I had nothing to lose. It worked! It may only last a day it may last a week then you have to whack it again.

Got tired of doing that so I took the unit apart (T-9 Torx driver some may have the tamper-proof screws) and found a little black ground wire at the very top of the assembly that connects the pc board with the display module had broken and was making intermittent contact. I believe that's why when I'd give it a whack it would work for awhile and then go inverted again sometime later. I replaced that wire making good soldering connections on both ends and so far so good. Can't say for sure this is the ultimate fix or that your issue is the same but it's worth a shot. Beats shelling out another grand! Good luck.

I had this problem on my 19c screen just recently. I could atually touch the screen and it would go back to a normal view. Touch it again and it wopuld reverse and invert. And then... my screen started to look like a tv with a horizontal hold problem with multiple fluttering images. And I couldn't get this problem to go away. I called Lowrance earlier today and they don't service these machines anymore and won't give you the name of a repair center. The best I could get out of them was a $250 rebate toward a new lcx 27 machine. Not much for an $800 machine that was 3 years old. I'm afraid to say that your machine is likely going to get unusable with a probable display issue.

Everything on the screen is back wards and upside down! Tried pulling battery, did not work...

Hi,problem can be solved.It's not a battery fault,it's a flex problem.

The flex is located inside the phone and it allows the screen to display,So when the flex gets damaged the display will be disturb and it will start display backward pictures.

When you replace the flex of the phone,problem will be solved.

Take care.

Lowrance LCX power up problem

On Lowrance LCX-19 and I would assume other LCX series units.
The T3 Transformer shorts out and when the sonar kicks in it causes the unit to go over current and will eather cause the unit to reset and start again or blow the fuse. If you have the ability you can re-wind the transformer.

The primary is 46 turns of 24awg inverter duty magnet wire,
The secondary is 164 turns of 26awg inverter duty magnet wire.

Be sure to keep the same winding direction as what you take off as it may be phase sensitive. Be sure to use mylar tape between the primary and secondary windings.

Just a note this board has very heavy power planes and is very hard to solder/de-solder on.

Screen is upside down as I type

Wow. Just wow. How did that person do that?! Anyways, try resetting ALL of the memory, and see if that helps, if not, ask the student what she did so that it can be reversed (probably by doing the same steps in the opposite order.

Samsung a950 main screen display is backwards and upside down

My Samsung U700 had the same problem (display went back-to-front and colours all reversed and low-res.) It seems to be a problem with the flex cable (the cable between the main phone body and the sliding screen) wearing down and screwing up the data being carried between the display and the phone. Flex cables are cheap to buy and there's plenty of info online showing how to replace them yourself. Good-luck. Google: samsung u700 replacement flex cable

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!

Upside down characters

Silly question - are you holding it the right way up?
If you are, there may be a display setting for rotation.
