Lowrance/Eagle repair

8 posts in this topic

i have a Eagle Cuda 242 that is just out of warranty. I only used it twice and now it won't read depth. I thought it was a bad pin in the trasducer cable so I bought a new transducer but still the same. Is there a place close to the metro besides Lowrance that can look at these? I only use it in the front of my boat when my son is with and don't want to spend much more on the cheap little thing. confused.gif

Try Fish-Lectronics, they're on University near 694.

I talked to them but all they could do was sell me a transducer. I know there is a guy supposedly by Brainerd but don't have his info. Thought maybe there would be someone closer.

Wish I could help but the only other ideas I have about repair would be to call Reeds and see if they know about the guy in Brainerd.

Ebay might be an option. Since you have a new transducer, maybe you could get lucky and find a deal on a head unit that works with the transducer. Might not fit too good with your plan of not spending a lot more money on it though.

Good luck.

Thanks for the ideas. On Ebay they are going as much or more than the local stores. It amazes me what people will pay for some items.

Call Jim Wentworth at Fish Lectronics in Nisswa, MN.

Lowrance emailed me today and said they would cover the unit under warranty. For being 13 months old, I have to give a hats off to them.

I've always felt Lowrance/Eagle have a pretty good customer service. Glad to hear they're taking care of you.

      I have been out the last 3 weekends without success.  Although I do know my boat and equipment are all in working order!  Water has stayed in the low to mid 50's during this period.  I have fished Balyntine, Francis, and Big Jefferson.   I have fished shallow, suspended, and deep.  Having fun and know I'll soon be in the zone!

      Tomorrows weather is looking nice, after that not so much.  The big boat is still in winter storage and BC's boat is getting a new transom.  So it might be put the dock in and work on the transom kinda weekend.

      So, opener is only two weeks away.  Who's going to make the trip to Cass and Kitchi?  And the big question, with this nice spring weather pattern we are experiencing.  Is it going to finally be a nice opener?
