I have an Lx3 approximately 3-years old with the tc upgrade.

First time out this year the gain was at approximately 2.The next 3 times out I had to have the gain at 7 to find my jig.Friend I was with said his did the same thing last year and sent it in and they replaced the power head,has anybody else had this problem?I would have thought that it may be a transducer.(I cleaned my transducer,still does'nt work)Having second thoughts about the Lx5 I bought my son for Christmas!Anybody else have this problem and what was the fix? frown.gif

A friend of mine had a very similar problem w/ his lx3. after contacting marcum, he sent it in for repair. I think he was happy with the cust service but was without a flasher for a little while.

I've had this happen on two LX3s. On the first one it was the transducer. On the second one it was the powerhead. They took care of both issues very quickly.

How long are we talking to get the thing back. Just found out mine is doing the same thing. I haven't sent it in yet, and I am leaving on a trip next Friday. Suppose that is what I get for waiting a week before to get the gear out.

Talk to the repair guy and let them know your situation. They'll bend over backwards to get it back to you by then.

Fishing 101,

If you can drop it off at their place in Anoka that will save some time. Like Borch said, explain your situation and they'll work to get it ready for your trip. They did for me before Xmas.

Had the problem same with my LX3tc - told them I needed it for a weekend trip. They fixed in 2 days the end of Dec and had it in time for the weekend. Did it no questions asked. Great customer service.

From the list of things they fixed looks like they replaced just about everything but the shell.

      Welcome what are you training her for waterfowl upland or both? What is her name?

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
