Lowrance X111 problem

4 posts in this topic

When I turn the unit on, the screen lights up like it usually does, then goes dim, makes a series of quick beeps, and then shuts off. I have hooked a Global Map 6500 up to the same connections, a 532 and another X111 and they all work fine. Just trying to figure out what the problem might be before I have to send it in. I haven't tried resetting it yet as I took it out of the boat for the winter but that's going to be my next step. Anyone else had this problem?

Thanks,

LR

I had the same thing happen to me. I hooked up my x-17 to the same connectors and it worked fine. I had a local lowrance dealer send it in, and they sent me a brand new 113hd. I think they had a lot of issues with that unit. Maybe you will get lucky and get a brand new unit.

Before you try doing a hard reset try downloading the software update from Lowrance

Hopefully that gets rid of it. When you do the hard reset you lose all of your waypoints and that sucks.

My buddy had a 111 where it immediatly after he did a hard reset, but after he shut it off and turned it on the second time, it would do exactly like you said. I updated it for him last year on musky opener and it worked just fine.

The tech lady I talked to said she had never heard of this before. I was wondering if she even knew what a sonar/GPS unit was. Thanks for the input.

    • I apologize if that came out wrong. The idea might very well be the best route to go. It's just that over the past 25 years or so I have seen many attempts to save a dollar that cost a buck and a half to do lol.    Here are my two cents. If you have a slab and you want to pour on top of it while keeping the same footprint that sounds pretty doable and could probably save some money if you don't have to change drain lines, run water, heat runs, electrical etc into the slab.   If you intend to tie into the existing slab and run zones of pex across the joint and have the new and old floors end up at the same elevation it still can be done. Some contractors will not want to mess with tying into and raising the elevation of the slabs and will prefer to start from scratch especially if you as the homeowner want them to warranty the finished product.  The critical thing would be to use enough rebar drilled into the old slab and have enough compaction and sufficient footings to make sure the slabs stay where they are without settling. That would make all kinds of problems with the pex.    Hopefully that response came across better.
    • It'll be interesting to see if the team plays a little harder in front of a different goalie. 
    • Hawg, I'm with you on this one !
    • Check and see if you have a video output on you device. You may be able to record to a digital device.
    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
