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...

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff

      Thanks for the report MNfan.  Too bad fishing wasn't better for you. Good weather at least. Nice to get out this time of year.

      They eat little bitty stuff.   But them and whitefish should be catchable in summer.  They are eating after all.
