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.
