Marcum Question

9 posts in this topic

Yesterday I was fishing in 16 ft of water using a #10 demon and my LX3 with TC upgrade would not pick up my bait. I have a new battery in the unit so I know that's not the problem and I'm wondering what you guy's think it is. I'm guessing the transduce went bad but before I spend $75.00 I would like to know if anyone else has expierienced this and what the problem was.

Thanks in advance.

It may be a bad ducer from that era or even some form of damage with what now must five years old? Of course check your connections just to make sure or contact Marcum customer service they are always more then willing to help.

Did you find that you were having to turn the gain way up to get anything?

Yes, I had the gain all the way up.

I found that I have issues picking up my bait when the transducer is touching the side of the ice when I don't have it all the way down. If it isn't touching the side of the ice, or is to the bottom of the hole then I don't have an issue.

I'm reasonably certain the ducer was under the ice, but maybe I'll check that out today.

Thanks

Had the same problems with an LX-3tc, I would send it into Marcum or bring it to their service office in Anoka (if it is still there). Mine turned out to be the transducer, but they also did some work on the head unit cause it was also having IR issues.
