Lowrance Issue

6 posts in this topic

My Lowrance x111 that I have on the bow trolling motor all the sudden just is blank. Has always worked fine and no problems. Now just wont even turn on.

Anyone else had the same issue?

Can you move it to another location in the boat to hook it up and try it with another power source?

I agree with Dan, try it in another location if possible and/or try a different unit on the power supply for the x111.

If the power supply is fine, it's probably the keypad --- that's a service issue for Lowrance.

Good luck getting it fixed.

I had an issue similar with my LMS 480, I couldn't get it to turn on at all. I went to FleetFarm and bought a 520c and hooked it up. only to try a different power source and connectors later and my 480 works fine.... power connectors were the issue for me. now i have to explain my purchase to my wife. what was i supposed to do? go fishing with out sonar? LOL

Same thing happened to me with my X-15 MT It just went blank and would not turn on, unfortunatly it was smoked. So I contacted Lowrance and they told me that they no longer serviced that model (it was only 5 yrs old)they gave me a $200.00 credit towards a new model I bought the X-27 C

I really like it. Go to the HSOforum for troubleshooting info or repair.

I had the same issue with my LMS 522. For no reason it simply no longer turned on. I detemined it wasn't a problem with any wiring or cables in my boat and sent it back to Lowrance. They ended up sending me a brand new unit minus a $200 service charge. I did talk to a Lowrance service tech who said there could be a million reasons for the complete hardware failure. I got the feeling this issue is becoming more common.

    • I am not one to post on here much but I am always "Lurking in the shadows". Anyway I have a question about a Grand Prix I bought a few years ago. When I first acquired the car it would up shift into the next gear as soon as you stepped on it fairly hard making for a rather uneventful and slow accelerating process. I figured this was normal as it was the only thing I found unusual. Then after awhile it begin to shake subtly when accelerating in first and second gear after second gear it would accelerate flawlessly. in the last few months it has begun to develop a fairly bad jerk when stopping and then going again. This ONLY happens after driving long distances. It never happens if I drive under 100 miles .Also it only happens about 1/3 of the time after driving these long distances. It will still accelerate slowly until about 3 mph and then it will jerk fairly hard when it does happen. Any Ideas what would cause this? The long distance thing is what confuses me.
    • What a load of dung question.  In your eyes no one could respond with a "rational" explanation. Johnson knew what it was going to take to get into the debates when he decided to run.  He failed up to this point so suck it up. Maybe you and Dave can get together and drown your tears together over a couple cold ones.
    • Do you have any rational explanation why a candidate who is on the ballot in all 50 states, and has a petition to be included in the debates with over 1 million signatures on it, should not be in the debates? https://www.johnsonweld.com/debate?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=tweet&utm_term=GJ-09-23&utm_campaign=debate

    • Sweety, son and I are both-In. Will try and hold out for a buck but no Deer in the freezer so if it's Brown its Down!
    • I may have missed it when I dozed off in the middle of the "debate", but I don't believe there was any mention of Aleppo in the whole affair...    
    • Del drops the mic.   Nice dodge.   How would Del know what Trump and Clinton are thinking or are afraid of (if they are afraid of anything)?  
    • You don't have to but you will own everything Hillary does.
    • I think I'd rather it be dirty than apply solvents to it.   It is a four-wheeler, not a corvette.  They are made to be dirty  I might try armor all or something but i'd stick with something made for automotive purposes.
