Lowrance Help??

7 posts in this topic

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...

      Thanks Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff
