Depthfinder problem- quit working

4 posts in this topic

Yesterday while we were fishing and the transducer was in the water, where it had been all day, my LX3 screen went blank. All it is showing is the red band at the top with no reading below. I've only had it for 2 months but I think the transducer is out because it is not making any more noise. Any suggestions on what to do? I plan on fishing this weekend and would like to have a working one, so should I send it in to Marcum or return it to Cabelas? I still haven't heard back from Marcum (I emailed them last night around 9pm). By the way, the battery was 80% charged and the connections are all good.

This may be a long Holiday weekend for personal at MarCum. Give them time and I'm sure they'll give you complete satisfaction.

Check the connection where the transducer connects to the unit. Based on your description there is nothing wrong with the unit. Sounds like the transducer is either unplugged or not making a solid connection.

The connections were both good and it wasn't working. I was at Cabelas yesterday and they gave me a new one, what good customer service they have. Well, I'm a lot happier now that I have a working one. Mine is the third one I've heard of having this same problem, maybe a gliche in new technology?

    • well the seeds were planted four days ago and to my surprise when I checked them this morning they had already germinated. I will wait awhile before I tell you who was the winner.. Empirical testing at its best!
    • the make knives to cut them smaller!!!!!!!
    • Riiiiight... How come they didn't produce this document 8 years ago...
    • I would have started out at a young age, teaching them right from wrong. And that regardless of their gender tell them that I love them. When you make a mistake, you own up to it and be accountable. You do the crime, you do the time. And I that I still love them.
    • I thought you were AGAINST fake news now?
    • That's a good little tip.  I'll have to give it a try.  
    • I may not be an economist but it doesn't take a genius to realize that accumulating debt at the rate we are now accumulating it is a recipe for disaster. Debt is more than doubling every 8 years. There is no sign that debt accumulation will even slow down in the future and there is definitely no indication that we will start paying it down, unless you believe the Donald when he said he was going to eliminate debt in 8 years before he said he wasn't going to do that any more.   As Purple indicated above if you are OK with saddling your grandchildren with all of the debt that your and my generations accumulated and can sleep well at night then good for you. I think the party of accountability should start holding someone accountable but you and they just want to continue kicking the can down the road. What do you care? You won't live forever, right? Might as well let someone else worry about it.   Are all government policies rooted in fact? Everything that you or the party that you constantly support proposes is able to be defended by facts? What about all the morality laws, nothing based from religion is factual. Are abortion laws based on facts? How do you know if a woman should have ultimate control of their body? What are the facts that support it? How about gay rights laws? What facts do you have that support not allowing gay couples the same rights as heterosexual couples? What are the facts that support it being a bad idea that I buy a car or a 6 pack of beer on Sundays in Minnesota?   There are plenty of laws and Policies that are enacted by all types of politicians that are unable to be defended with facts.
    • Geez...we must fish the same lakes  Both of these posts above have become common now that "ice castling" has become the latest fad and everyone and their mother is on the ice.  There is an abnormally large % of those with the shiny new toy who chose only to save money on their generator, but spend as much as they possibly can on their truck and fish house.  I can spot them from a mile away...3-4 guys get out of the truck, they circle around the fish house a few times wondering how to get it lowered to the ice, then they finally figure it out, and 2 of the guys offload the residential home backup generator and carry it 100 yards away, 150 pulls later they get it fired up, and I only know because it's so loud it rattles the dishes in my cabinets.
