      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Marcum Problem?

Question

I was just wondering if anyone else has had this issue and if there is anything I can do to fix it. My buddies Marcum was working great for the first 30 minutes of fishing last night and then all of a sudden the screen went blank. All you could see was a big red mark at the zero level. We tried everything from switching batteries and double checking the connections but couldn't figure out what happened. Is there any way that the unit can be reset? I didn't see anything online and sent Marcum an email but haven't heard back yet. My buddy will probably have to send it in to Marcum but just wondering if there is something that can be done in the meantime? Thanks!

You likely have one, maybe even two fuses inside? One may have went bad?

The MarCum guys around here should be able to help you with this one?

Thanks ED! I'm hoping there is a techi out there that might be able to shed some light on what might have happened. The fuses going out make sense.

Thanks again!

I believe he did ask Marcum customer service, but being so close to Christmas, I'm not sure he got a response. I havn't talked to him since yesterday, so I'm not sure if he got a response from them. Do you suppose a fuse blew?

wgmsa, his problem still persists but now it's Marcum's problem. However, he never did get an answer. Do you know what happened?

I'll weigh in here with the experience with my Marcum LX-3. I bought my first unit last December at Cabela's. Yeah, I know, I was one of the guinea pigs.(I was going to buy a Vexilar, but I had a bunch of Cabela's Cash to use and Cabela's had dropped Vex's)
That unit did exactly what you are describing after about 3 uses (no reading)
I called Marcum, they had me ship it up to Monticello, and they sent me a new unit very quickly, I was only out the 5 bucks for shipping. Used the 2nd unit about 5 times, then it does the same thing. I send it back again and get another new unit. 3rd unit sits in the garage all summer without ever being used. I finally find a transom transducer, mount on my boat and wow! it will not even power up. Send it back and I am now on my 4th unit which has worked the 2x I have used it so far.
Marcum never informed me what they found with the first three.
I am hoping that those were first year glitches that will go away.
Now, having said all that, I think the unit is awesome when it works. (I have not used a Vex much, so cannot compare). The detail is good, the charging system is great and the case is nice. Also, it has a 2 year warranty and the tech support was great every time.
I have not heard of any one else having the kind of problems I have had.
I would buy one again I think.
