Another Lowrance 334 question...

Question

hanson

Small problem with my unit.

Friday night, worked great!

Saturday night, it didn't. frown.gif

I turned the unit on and all I can get is a GPS screen, I can't get my depth to work. When I hit 'Pages' to move between GPS, Flasher, etc, I get that annoying beep. So I can't even pull my pages menu up.

Other problem is I shut the unit off with my brightness turned down, it was night when I was using it. So to adjust brightness, I have to hit 'Menu' twice to pull up the 2nd menu screen, to get to the 'screen' menu. Well, when I hit 'Menu' twice, the first menu pops up and when I hit it again, it shuts off. I can't get the 2nd Menu screen to show up.

I've heard all sorts of problems about the GPS in these things but the GPS is the only feature that works right now. What's up? The transducer is plugged in, it is ticking as well.

Chris, have you tried resetting your unit?? If you turn the unit off…then hold Zoom in, Zoom Out and Power all at the same time tell the picture of the USA comes up!!! Try that it should fix it.

FYI there is two ways to reset your unit and I can only remember this one, but here what might be the problem it might delete your waypoints. So im not sure if its this one or the other one Sorry blush.gif

I have a 332c (same thing with the external antenna) and the "soft" reset ( you will not loose your waypoints but it will reset the unit to factory defaults) is to hold in the pages button until the unit comes on. Hopefully this helps.

Mine did the same thing tonight. I pushed the page button and nothing. I thought I would have to send it in and it be weeks before it would come back. I will try the reset tomorrow.

I called a friend of mine last night who had similar problems a few weeks ago.

"Soft Reset" is the solution to this problem.

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. Worked like a charm!

You won't lose waypoints, tracks, etc with this kind of reset.

I would hold off doing any updating to version 1.8. It seem to cause problems with losing depth reading when in shallower water. If the unit is running good don't update. Version 1.8 is mainly suppose to help with networking so if you don't have plans to do this I wouldn't update.

I haven't updated yet. Been reading about it and decided to hold off. Bad shallow water performance is not what I'm looking for with my unit and mine reads pretty good right now. I fish the river nearly 90% of the time and am constantly hovering around 3-6' of depth in areas. I need to read these areas well. smile.gif

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
