New LX3-tc...SIMULATOR DOESN'T WORK :(

Recommended Posts

Got a great deal from Reeds at the sport show on a new Marcum yesterday but the simulator mode doesn't work when I hold down the Zoom while starting up. Kinda ticks me off. Whats wrong? confused.gif

I don't think that's a 'feature' on that model, unless they rigged it up on floor models for sales purposes. My LX-3 had the tc upgrade performed on it and it doesn't have any simulator, either.

Whenevever I want to see something like that, I need to go fishin'. DRAT! smirk.gif

schweady, I'm looking at the instructions now, they say if I hold down the Zoom buttton while starting up the simulator mode will begin. The unit I got was not a rebuilt or a show special, it was a sealed box with original packaging.

My LX3-TC does not have that feature, but my LX5 does. I am guessing that is one of the features the LX5 has over the LX3.

I think its against policy to offer advertised deals on these units. They are "price protected". Ask the sales staff what discount they are offering and you might be pleasantly surprised.

I can't figure out why the instruction manual tells about the simulator if it isnt offered on this model.

Your not nuts or going crazy. The LX3tc does have the "simulator" function.

Press down & hold the ZOOM button while you turn the unit on. Mine goes right in to the simulation mode...

Did the unit work properly other than the simulator? If so why worry about it? The simulator's main purpose is to help give the customers an idea of what they are buying.

Who cares, No one uses the simulator but Gander and Cabala's. Unless you are fishing in your living room or are not catching anything. grin.gif

The Marcum LX-3tc does have the simulator. Unfortunately not all the units have it. I don't know why but some didn't get it but most did. I guess you will just have to go fishing to see the awesome features. wink.gif

Polar Bear:

Here's a shot in the dark -- Does your dial face say "LX-3tc" or just "LX-3"? Maybe Marcum took some of their LX-3 units, performed the tc upgrade, and reboxed them with LX-3tc instruction manuals that mistakenly refer to a simulator option... ???

Like others have already said, your "problem" can be cured by cutting a hole in the ice. grin.gif

Schweady, thanks for the replies but I thought of checking that already. Yep, it definitely says LX3-tc right on the dial, the box and also the owners manual. I guess Bob Horn is probably right...some have the sim and some don't. Its not really a big deal but I was just curious.

    • They need to take full advantage of the easier games coming up.  I would like to see them get about 5-6 games ahead again.
    • Well painting is getting there.  The fenders and swing arm/axles are fully painted but I only managed to get about half of the frame painted.  I will get it finished up this week.  I have too because I have a large load of rock coming to finish my driveway expansion so I have a place to park my fish house this winter haha.
    • O yes I completely forgot about them and they are practically in my back yard. Thanks.
    • Gotta be frustrating...........head to NY and take 2 of 4 from the Yanks, yet lose two games in the standings. Get in their heads boys. The next 12 games have have yummy written all over them, get to eating.
    • Good win today in the Texas heat, 117 heat index. Perez struggled late but the pen got the job done. Polanco & Gonzalez with 5 of the 6 RBI's.

    • Nice win last night with Kepler & Schoop doing the heavy lifting. Some tough but good work done by the bullpen too.  Yanks beat the Indians as well.👍
