Lowrance Help??

Question

Central Bassman

Ok here is the problem I’m having. I have a Lowarnce 334c that is about a little over a year old. I have been having a lot of problems with the sonar part of it. The GPS is working great and I haven’t had any problems with it seen it been updated.

The problem I’m having is that it won’t read the depth. I can’t even get a Gray line or anything like that. It will show the depth sometimes but then i till just start flashing. If it does read the bottom all it has is a black line and sometimes a few colors makes?? I have playing with the sensitivity the ping speed and all that stuff...Any Ideal???? confused.gif

I would bet it is x-ducer. If you know somebody with the same unit, try it on their boat, hooked to their x-ducer. Would be easy fix if that is it, and it was for my bro-in-law and once for us. Good luck!

Try a Soft Reset.

With the unit turned off, push & hold the 'Pages' button in. Then push & hold the 'Power' button in. When the unit starts up and the map of the USA appears, release both buttons.

You will not lose any waypoints.

Central bassman>> there are previous post on here if you look for them with i think the same problem your having.i believe you said you updated it? if you did the update is the problem and you need to find an older version to put back on your unit..i know someone on here probably has it for you.Lowrance wont admit that there latest updates had some problems and one of them is the unit reading the bottom so check that out...

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
