Lowrance power switch problem.....

5 posts in this topic

HELP!!

I have an x104c and I had an intermittent power switch problem last spring that seemed to go away. haven't used it in 2 months and now it wont turn on, the screen will flash like like it's going to turn on and then nothing ........ All the connections are tight, battery is new with full charge, I'm really narrowing it down to a switch problem on something else internal.

Anybody experience anything similar and have suggestions?

Thanks!

Not too long ago someone here made a suggestion to take a Torx screwdriver and take the unit apart, and reseat the ribbon dable that goes to the keypad. I haven't done it myself so I don't really know what's involved, but it sounded pretty easy to do and sounds like it worked for 1 or 2 of the guys on here. Good luck getting it sorted out.

Call Lowrance before opening anything up. I would be worried about the waterproof capabilty after opening it up.

I assume its long out of warranty so I would call and see what they say. They may be able to fix it for you for a reasonable price.

I had the same problem with my Lowrance x102c. I got a Torx siz 7 and very carefully took the back off the head unit and hoping I would be able to spot what needed fixing. Well I don't have much small wiring, but I was overwhelmed when it was open. I didn't know what wire went to what or connected to what. I just ended up putting the head unit back together.

Basically I'm saying unless you know what you are doing ahead of time, don't even worry about taking it apart because you'll be in over your head. I heard their might be a marine in the Bloomington area (NOT Dan's Southside) who has a Lowrance specialty guy working there, but that is just what I heard from a friend.

Please keep us updated with what you decide to do with your unit.

Check on Lowrance's HSOforum for the "soft reset" and "hard reset" procedure for your particular unit. Worth a shot....

    •   With the 40 acres? Both hopefully. We still grouse hunt and deer hunt up there occasionally. There is a small cabin there but there is not a well or electricity. It is very primitive, but that's kind of what I like about it.
    • There are some pretty gnarly long roads and trails up in that area. I use to do some of them alone on 4 wheeler but not anymore. It's always nice to have a buddy with a wince along!  What are you guys thinking on doing with it hunting-camping?
    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
    • sounds like draw length is too long
    • Wax all the string except where the serving is as the wax can get under it and cause it to slip   You should be able to tell the serving because the string will be thicker. Serving is just a thin string wrapped around you bow string. Will be around your peep sight around your d loop   If all else fails just go to your local archery shop and ask them for some pointer about waxing and other general bow maintenance that you should be doing hope some of this info helps though good luck!
