3 posts in this topic

hi i just bought a used marcum lx 1 fish finder i believe its older it does not have bottom lock just a depth scale knob a gain knob and a button that says ir on it i would put a picture in but i have no camera i got this for 50 dollers and just wondering if i got took. i tried it out on a dock tonight it locked on bottom and had a lot of orange and red some green colers not much for green. when i wiggled the cable with the transducer. i think it may hav cut out the guy i bought it from said it did it for him once in a while could this be replaced or is this nonfixable. i just had to jump at this because i could afford it and probably cant get a new one i figured i didnt lose to much of the rent money he he thanks for any help ive never used a flasher so i dont know anything about it

It sounds like you need a new transducer. About $70 should solve your problems. Even after that, you still got a ripping deal. The LX 1 was taken out of production about 3 years ago when the VX 1 was introduced. The LX 2 and the LX 3tc use the same transducer as the LX 1. Age wise I got no help.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
