SOURCE: Lowrance LCX 28c HD with Navionics HotMaps Premium SD chip. Chip worked fine last fall but when I went to use yesterday the Lowrance would not read the chip.

I had the same problem with my handheld Lowrance Hunt C. After installing the card and locking it in place, I had to slide the card "out" toward the locking mechanism. It barely moves, but worked after that. Whenever I load the card, I now slide it out or wiggle it and it works every time.

SOURCE: Lowrance x96 does not function after 20 feet depth

Your transducer needs to be adjusted so the return signal can be picked up. Some of these have to be super tuned to receive the signal. Also the transducer may be moving ever so slightly when the boat is traveling at speed. You may have some water turbulence interference all contibute to signal return.

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 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??

SOURCE: My Lowrance X-51 is not reading the depth sitting

Yes quite possibly... But a few things to try/check first before you go out and get a new transducer...

1. Ensure the transducer is fully submersed below the waterline when floating and when on the plane... try lowering it more if you can.
2. Check the surface of the transducer itself (the underside) pointing down... If there are any minor scratches or scuffs, this can effect its function or performance. Minor scratches or marks can be sanded out with fine wet/dry sandpaper (at least 400 or 800 grit).
3. Isolate any electrical wires running near or next to the transducer cable. Also check connection of cable at head unit, and that the pins etc are clean, free of corrosion and making good contact.
4. Take your head unit to your Lowrance dealer and they may have a transducer there to use to diagnose whether it is indeed the trasnducer or a problem with the head unit.

Good luck!

How do I change the F-Stop (Depth of Field) on my black FujiFilm FinePix JX600?


I don't believe that camera allows that. The JX600 is an automatic P&S camera. If you look around, you may find a deal on a Fuji F series camera, which has manual and semi auto controls in addition to full auto.

I am a novice with a camera and have just bought a Nikon P7000 and I am having trouble using it even in Programed auto mode can you help, Grant.


I mean this entirely without sarcasm or anything negative or patronising.
Read the instruction manual in depth, read it with the camera hands on with you at the same time.
Go through each mode of operation cover to cover.
Check the numerous Nikon websites for user reviews of your specific model.
Take your time and enjoy it.

Hello! Do you have the PDF users guide for your unit? I'm looking at a copy in the troubleshooting section...I don't want to cover information you have already looked at or tried...Since I do not know if you have that manual I'll give you a few items to check...

Measure the battery at the units power connector...Must be at least 11 volts DC...In portable mode it uses 8 D cell batteries= 12 volts
Make certain the Transducer is securely connected...
Did you use the in-line fuse supplied with the unit?...
Try the Manual Depth Range...First turn off Auto Depth Range...From the sonar Page Hit MENU...Down-arrow to Auto Depth Range...Hit ENT...Hit Up-Arrow to Depth Range...Hit ENT..
And the Depth Scale Range appears...Up-Arrow or Down-Arrow to select a different depth range...Hit Exit...The minimum depth the unit can read is 5 feet...

The depth reads 98 to 100 feet.


I need more details about the problem you are having to be able to help you.
My best guess is that your unit will only disply data between 98 and 100 feet?
If thats the case check the range setting on your unit. It may be set to only display that range. You can set it to auto and it will automatically adjust the range from zero to just over the maximum depth it is currently reading.

My Eagle will no longer read the bottom beyond 50 ft, even with the boat stopped and the outboard turned off. The voltage is listed at 12.1 volts; there are no kinks or cuts in the trasnducer cable.


It seems most likely that your manual range has accidentally been set for 50' or less. Go into the menu and set to auto range. Here are the exact keystrokes as shown on PAGE 51 of your manual:
MENU> scroll down to DEPTH RANGE> ENTER> Exit

If this doesn't work, try doing a ful reset, as shown on PAGE 64 of your manual:
MANU> MENU> scroll down to RESET OPTIONS> <- to YES> ENTER

The Fishmark 320 is an excellent unit, and it works great in full-auto mode if you have the transducer mounted properly. Let us know if this doesn't fix your problem.

When I turn on the unit it will not read the depth only a blue screen and it will not let me switch out of auto mode or run the sounder test?


I know this is an old question but just ran across it. The 1833C/NT is a radar and chart plotter. It requires the external and optional black box sounder to have depth recorder functionality.

Furuno 4100 depth sounder shows depth twice what it really is


check your gain setting try auto gain and try manually gaining back to see if it resolves, if yes, send unit in to furuno, if no, ducer is probably at fault.
