Marcum Lx-3 transducer problem

4 posts in this topic

Last year my transducer on the LX-3 stopped working or at least doesn't work as well as it did. Normally, when you pick up the ducer' to your ear with it on a strong "tick,tick,tick" emits from it--- now my still emits the tick-- but not nearly as strong. It's too weak to find the bottom and much too weak for marking fish.I have checked and rechecked all connections and can't find anything wrong. Battery fully charged etc. Had two FL-8 for years and never anything wrong with them--- I don't like Marcum plastic connections on the back-- anyways , may my ducer be shot or is something else the matter??? It has seen some rough use over the last 4-5 years.

If your not able to pick up bottom without turning up the gain you can assume the ducer is bad. Contact MarCum Customer Support and they'll take care of you.

Mud,

As you stated,"your transducer has had some rough duty the past 4 or 5 years". There are not any transducers out there that will stand up to really rough duty for many years. I have both Marcum and Vexilar flashers and have to say that both units have preformed very reliably over the years.

Transducer problems are not rare with either unit though. I have had to replace transducers on both makes.

I have not had any problems with the plastic connections on my Marcums, ever.

      I'm hoping the snow they are forecasting shows up. Because then it's on for sure.    Put new glass on the light weight .223 so I don't have to carry the heavy target weight gun around. Just not practical where I hunt to have a 300yard gun. A 150yard gun will do just fine.    When you cary a shotgun and a rifle on almost every stand a few extra pounds can add up in a hurry.    Good luck tonight moose

      Twin is pretty deep. One of the last to freeze over in most years.    I wasnt home yesterday evening to see if any more kids went through the ice.    I will did the spud out and see how thick  it is by shore tomorrow.

      We wait until the snowmobile club stakes the trail before going through the narrows.
