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.

    • What specific things make him indecent or classless?    Did he grab women by the pu**y? Did he make fun of a disabled reporter? Did he call most Mexicans rapists? Did he make fun of John McCain because he was captured in Vietnam? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was born in Kenya? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was a Muslim? Did he say Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever"? Did he say "Laziness is a trait in the blacks"?   I'd be interested to know what things Obama has done that are more indecent and classless than this.
    • Imagine an Obama who loved this country and had 8 years to show that.  The guy is smart, charismatic, and very likeable.  Instead we had 8 years of anti american ideology, lies, and race baiting. He chose that path, not me.
    • What reasons did you vote for Trump? Did it ever occur to you that those reasons may have been just things to get you to vote for him?
    • I know. I guess I forgot to put the  after my post.     Court decisions is what I was referring to because I also do not know of any laws officially separating church and state. There may be laws at the state or local level I don't know. The 1st amendment is not always interpreted by courts the same way. 
    • He has chosen to skip over decency and you earn respect, he is the one who had 8 years to show respect and class and failed.  He could have been the greatest president ever and unite this country but chose otherwise.  Even in his last days he is despicable.  That said i wont bow down to Trump and he needs to earn the respect obama has not.  Time will tell.
    • Anyone who thinks this country isn't heading to single payer, government funded healthcare is fooling themselves. I'm not in favor of it but we may as well just do it and get it over with now.
    • But will you recognize it? Just like I am sure that President Obama has signed legislation and done other things that YOU think are "good things"  for America that Sledneck doesn't recognize.
    • I give up.  Because it gets people to vote for them?    
    • Why would they worry about the debt, we can just print money????
    • It is a special accommodation for a particular religion.     No law states that that I am aware of.  Perhaps you have more information.  Just some court decisions which while they may be binding are not laws.
