lowrance sonar problems

5 posts in this topic

I Bought a new lowrance lxc-17 in 2007. It has worked great up until my most recent trip. The problem is when I troll at 2-5 mph the sonar wont read the depth. If I am in no motion the sonar works great. Any advive or information on fixing my problem would be much appreciated.

If it happens just when you run the trolling motor maybe you are having electrical interference or maybe your transducer got bumped and is at a bad angle. Thats what comes to mind for me.

Probably just as stated, your transducer is either tipped to far up or to far down. If that does not cure your problem, you will probably need to replace the transducer.

Refer to your manual's transducer mounting section. Did you try manually increasing the gain? After doing the above, does it read bottom better in shallow water. You probably have a bad transducer.

I had the same problem with my 102c. Tried to adjust the transducer but nothing worked. Called lorance since it was under warranty and they sent me a new transducer. Put it on and it works great now.

Sounds like they may have a bad batch of transducers since I have seen many post with the same type of issues. Not saying it will be YOUR fix but it worked for me.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
