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 interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
