LX5 Trouble?

6 posts in this topic

How many peolpe have lost there transducer and what were the symptoms? Mine on Saturday started to act like it was getting interferance, then I went to the NBT and it cleared up for about 2 hrs and then did it in NBT and about 10 minutes later nothing. Just the redline at the top of the screen and bottom when in split screen. Battery was fully charged and nobody was within 200 yds of me.

Thanks for any help.

One of mine did that and started buzzing it was the head. They had it replaced in a few days no problem. Sent me a new head and paid postage to return the old one.

Send it in but before you do make sure your battery is good and fully charged and the connections are solid. My LX-5 had some weak connectors but after I pinched them down some they stayed tight and were fine.

Mine did the exact same thing. Brought it up there and within 5 minutes was given a new head unit and battery, and I was out of warranty. Very happy with their customer service.

They told me to send it in. I have had it a little over a year, don't remember how long the warranty is. I will have to see what the out come is.

    • which models of striker bibs/ coat?
    • That little doe is a sweetheart. Reminds me why I gave up hunting. But I did it for more than six decades from MN to MT to AK and Canada. Before somebody jumps in with a snide  comment, I don't care if YOU do it but it is just not for me any more. Carry on. Nice pix....couple nice looking bucks.
    • I fish for monster bass too. But yeah, when one is the master of walleyes one tends to be an elitist... 
    • I agree; stay away from the extended warranty.  If my dealership (Village Chevrolet) won't honor the original warranty, what makes you think they will honor an extended warranty?  This problem was discovered well before my warranty ran out and they still treated me like an ugly sister...

    • I can't say I'm much in agreement with Gary Johnson on this issue and I can admit it. I will say however that it makes more sense than the deal Pence struck with Carrier.   1. The carrier deal handed away state money while still being a net LOSS of jobs in that state. Johnson's program enticed new business into his state and resulted in a net GAIN of jobs and probably tourism dollars as well.  2. I think these types of deals should be handled as locally as possible. It's called representative government. Maybe it makes sense in the New Mexico deal that it be handled at the state level since it probably effects the state as a whole at least to some degree but I don't know. The Indiana deal should have been handled locally, especially if any of the tax cuts promised were property taxes. Those benefit communities at a more local level and the jobs saved benefit communities at a more local level. The state government possibly should not be handling these things but the Federal Government most assuredly should not be involved in these deals.  3. I'm pretty sure that the threat of interference with federal contracts had much more to do with the Carrier deal anyway so why did they give Carrier any tax breaks? I thought Trump was a tough guy and a strong armer? In the New Mexico deal, tax cuts are about the only leverage someone would have to bring that extra revenue and jobs into the state.   I'll say it again, I'm really not in favor of the government picking winners and losers. I do think the Pence deal is something that happens every day but the only difference is it happens at a local level and you don't have a blow hard President-elect taking credit for it normally. Time will tell whether it was a good deal or if the rest of the manufacturing community will hold the Government for ransom now like every professional sports franchise does these days.    Gary Johnson is in favor of replacing the current Tax code with a 'Fair Tax" system.
