Zercom LCF 40 - Battery

2 posts in this topic

Well, I got out for the first time this year and was having trouble with my flasher. I was having a hard time picking up and lure and could not really distinguish the bottom from interference. Does anyone have a guess what the problem is? I am still running a 3 year old battery in this unit. Could it be time for a new one.

I know that the simple solution is to get the FL-18 or LX-3 but with a wedding the year I think I will have to wait until next season.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A freshly charged battery makes a big difference but if that is not the problem, you could have one of two other problems. First, try to put a little dielectric grease on the transducer connection (I bought a little tube in the automotive section at Fleet farm for $1.89). I have had this problem before and this takes care of it every time. Just be sure to insert the dielectric grease in the female end of the plug and then wipe the excess off so you don't get crossover of signals.

If this doesn't do it, it could be your transducer is bad.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
