shrieking lowrance x-102c

3 posts in this topic

Hello, My x-102c is acting crazy right now. It will run fine an then start making this annoying sound and power itself on/off. It will turn itself to 'chart stopped', and just bounce from screen to screen without being touched. I run through the menu and turn this feature (stop chart) off, and it runs pretty well. Just when I think that I have the problem licked it will do it again. The starting battery that powers it also runs my lms-334c. This 334 runs fine. I moved the 102c to this power source where the 334 is usually at, and it runs in the same sporadic fashion when powered here. I have sent this unit in to Lowrance. For about $200 they fixed it. It's going south again and am starting to lose patience. The power source doesn't appear to be the problem. It usally says that it's reading 11.9-12.5v. I think that this is a workable range. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks Sam

I see you are all on the edge of your seats wondering how this has played out. Now my unit will only turn off if I unplug the power chord. I called lowrance, and this very helpful lady is sending me a brand new x520c to replace my x102c that is on the fritz for a 2nd time. I must say I was very surprised and impressed. Go Twins

My 332 was giving me trouble, I had to send it in 4 times before they up graded me to 520c. Many hours on the phone with them and all fishing season without a finder! This was under warranty.

    • A teleprompter really helps to not make people look stupid.
    • Team Europe had a chance last night. Leading late into the 3rd and the wheels come off. Even with a PP with under 2 minutes left to play they give up a short handed goal!? Tough one, but Canada is certainly the better team. Glad its over so we can get our players all back with the wild, but I did enjoy the tourney even though the US was terrible.
    • That would have been a fine answer.   Unfortunately instead he sat there with his mouth hanging open (figuratively) and looked like a total dolt.   This is the second time he has handled something in an interview poorly.  I guess he feels he needs the exposure but unfortunately he is not especially good at the interview thing.   At the very least he needs to practice deflecting the question.  Perhaps the "nobody especially" but "I prefer to look to American leaders of the past like (Calvin Coolidge, Teddy Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson, William Calhoun, whoever he wants)"  He can't just sit there and and look stupid, which is what he did.    Maybe some role playing in preparation would have helped.   He can't be as ignorant and inept as he has come across in TV interviews.  
    • Del and D2E are now officially on the same side as Nancy Pelosi... http://sfist.com/2016/09/28/pelosi_chews_out_gary_johnson_voter.php
    • What? She has a Gary Johnson button in her naval?
    • This is probably the best answer, still though, Johnson is clearly the lesser of 3 evils.
    • The bottom (and top) plate(s) of your wall are stood on end.   
    • Thats a good point about setting the stand up on the side or backside of the tree.  I probably could have done that easy enough. In a pinch i suppose I could climb the same tree with my climbing stand on the backside and hide behind my empty ladder stand. I do plan to be standing when the deer walk through.  I should be able to hear them before they get into a clearing I'm hunting over so I'll be standing by time they get into visual range.  Any guesses at home many times I end up standing up for what turns out to be a squirrel? Of course all of this could be a waste of time since right now the forecasted wind conditions are completely wrong for this spot.  If the forecast holds I've got a couple back up spots I'll hit instead and will be using a ground blind or my climbing stand.
