Problem with Lowrance 102c

Question

Seabass77

My 102c started acting up this year. It turns on by itself, and beeps in error. I am not sure what is going on. I now have to leave the power off. I bought the boat and unit new in 2005. Any ideas? Anyone know a good place that can look at this for me. Thanks.

Joe

I can't really help you, but fyi I just had the same thing happen to a 332c. Fortunately for me I had 3 weeks of warranty left. It's at Lowrance right now ......

I don't think anyone can work on them other than Lowrance, due to the boards and software in them. Good luck.

Probably a bad keypad. My 3500c did the same thing. I was out of warranty so it cost me $95.

Warranty is probably 1 year, unless you got an extended warranty or had a boat manufacturer install it and warranty it longer, etc.

Call the Lowrance service line and be prepared to be on hold for maybe 1/2 hour. But chances are they will tell you to just send it in and they will exchange it, as they did for me. ( they had a problem with processors or something on those units)

I also told them I did not want to be without the locator for the rest of the season, and they said OK just send it in when you're done fishing in the fall, which I did.

You will need the model and serial handy when you call, they will give you a RA# and will document the info under that RA# so no questions when you send it in.

FYI--- I have a 332C and the fact that the locator was on and beeping for god knows how long burned out my transducer, which I noticed this spring. I called lowrance and they replaced it too!!!

Great customer service I think.

My 102 also had this problem, just got it back and my 332 started doing the same thing. I sent it in yesterday, and today I remembered the lakemaster chip is still in it! Do you think I will ever see it again?

I think you better have your RA number handy and sit on hold with their CS dept until you get someone to talk to. My guess is this 'probably' happens quite a bit and you'll 'probably' get your map chip back, but I wouldn't chance it without a phone call.

For my 332 they sent a replacement unit. 9 day door-to-door from when I shipped the old one until I got the new one. No complaints from me.

      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.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      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.
