LOWRANCE X67C PROBLEMS/ ISSUES??

Question

HUMMER 55

I have a lowrance x67c sonar/fish finder. im on my second unit and i still am having issues after three years with the darn thing. anyone else had this issue.

While using it in ice machine mode with split screen the 0-6ft zoom side bottom mark keeps moving up and down relitively rapidly. this make it very difficult to watch your bait and the fish while it is bouncing around. this is the second new control box but the same tranducer as original unit. ive tried everything! i have two friends that use this also and one has never had any issue the other had the same issue right away and so he returned it and the second one works fine. could it be the transducer??

i emailed lowrance tech but i got no response as i figured that....

any help or knowledge would be appreciated..

last resort ill have to get a vexilar i guess. frown

I bought one of the first x 67 and had the same problem. TRyed lowrance and got nothing back for advice. I also figuired it was the transducer, but found a fl 20 on c -list and bought that. Vexilar works all the time.

Hey Cass Master!

I have had a x67c for 3-4 years now and use it on the trolling motor and ice fishing, Great product! Have you turned the auto depth range off?

I have mine turned off all winter. Are you with or around someone using a Vex Or Graph?

Hope this helps!

I think I know what you're refering to. I have the same unit. Although I don't ever use Flasher mode and have no desire to, it can be frustrating if you do. In Flasher mode, you'll probably also notice the depth reading jumping around within a few tenths of a foot or so. I think that is what causes the marks to jump because it's always adjusting for the "new" depth. When my depth reading settles on a depth, everything is fine. It won't do it all the time but most of the time. My brother has the same unit and his does the same thing. Neither of us use the Flasher so we both just kind of went "Hmmm, that's weird", flipped back to graph, and kept fishing.

Sorry I can't help but I'm curious what you find out. Hopefully one of the experts will have an answer.

Good luck.

OK HERES WHAT THEY TOLD ME AT LOWRANCE....

TURN UNIT ON. PAGE THE SCREEN TO SHOW THE GRAPH STYLE VIEW. (THIS IS KEY). THEN HIT MENU BUTTON, GO DOWN TO THE SONAR FEATURES, ENTER . MAKE SURE THAT SURFACE CLARITY AND NOISE REJECTION IS OFF, THEN GO DOWN TO CHART MANUAL MODE AND PUT AN X IN THE BOX.(TURNS IN ON). THEN EXIT ONE TIME BACK TO THE MENU SCREEN AND GO UP AUTO SENSITIVITY AND UNCHECK IT.(TURNS IT OFF). THEN IT SHOULD NOT JITTER THE BOTTOM ZOOM ON SPLIT SCREEN FOR ICE FISHING... SO THEY SAY.... MY UNIT WAS TURNED ON ONE OF THE SETTINGS SO ILL HOPE ITS GOOD TO GO !!

IF SOMEONE TRIES IT AND GOES OUT FISHING BEFORE I DO LET ME KNOW IF IT HELPS.

I'm not confident that will work but it's worth a try. I know I have the Chart Manual Mode box checked and have played with Noise Rejection and Surface Clarity but I'm not sure if I ever had it set their combination though.

I really hope it works. I'm not sure if I'll be out this weekend so let us know please. That would be super if it is that simple.

I tried those settings this morning and didn't notice any difference. Again, I'm much more comfortable using the graph so I personally don't care. With that said, it would be really nice to get this resolved knowing it could be a potential deal-breaker for some. The tool is there and it should work properly for the money we spend on these things.

I bought the Ice Pack for my X67C in December 2008 and I experienced this problem most of the time that I used it last season. This season, I have only been able to use it for a few hours (went out last weekend), but the fluttering was there.

I searched the forum this week & found some posts indicating that the battery needs to be running at 12 volts or higher. Anything less than 12 (or at least 11.8), and the fluttering supposedly occurs. I wasn't able to charge mine before using it last weekend-- tried to but my charger was fried. I drained the battery while out fishing last weekend, so I suspect my voltage was low.

So, after buying a new charger this week, doing a hard reset, and following the settings sequence described above (all of which I've always done, with the exception of doing the first few in the graph mode), I just took it out to test it.

Guess what? Same annoying flutter. At first it locked 15.9 feet. I set my depth at 20 feet & it stayed locked on 15.9. I thought the problem was solved. Then I dropped a 'Gill Pill down & started jigging it. After a minute, the flutter was back. I swithced to the graph & the bottom reading was still fluttering. The voltage was reading 12.4.

I did order a new transducer yesterday. If one of the salesmen at another shop that I spoke to hadn't said that Vexilar is coming out with all new units next year, I probably would have skipped the transducer and bought a Vex. I will test the new transducer this week & post the results.

I'm going to be pretty bummed if I end up wasting over $100 on a new charger & transducer. Very frustrating indeed.

Can you guys explain your fluttering problem a little more in depth. Does it change just a little or a ton? My unit will show the accurate depth, say 30' and then all of the sudden will jump all over, as deep as 300'. Flat out the thing just starts freaking out. I've had the guys I'm fishing with shut off their flashers but the problem keeps happening (only once in while). I emailed Lowrance and they are sending me a new transducer. Man I don't know what the heck is going on with there transducers but almost everyone I know that has a lowrance has had to replace their ducer. (summer and winter versions)

Mine typically jumps up and down very rapidly +/- .1-.5 feet. So fast that it's usually difficult to read the depth numbers (i.e. the tenths). It will do this sometimes +/- 1 foot; however, I don't think I've ever seen it flutter more than +/- 2 feet.

When you emailed Lowrance about your problem, was your unit still within the warranty period? I'm outside my warranty by a little over a month, so I didn't contact them this time (I did contact them last season & they recommended the setttings above, which didn't stop the problem).

It's very important that your battery is fully charged and capable of delivering 12+ volts. I'd be willing to bet some of these issues are caused by weak batteries. If buying new, look for a 9+ amp hour battery, especially when using the 5" screen sized units.

Occasionally a transducer will go bad and usually what happens is you will see either a permanent loss of sensitivity (can't find your lure) or erratic returns (working fine one moment-then not). Also, bottom flutter can be caused by ice around the transducer, although this generally happens only when the ice is really thick. Try cranking up the surface clarity filter and/or drop the transducer below the bottom of the ice to see if that solves the problem.

For best results, use a Lowrance PTI-WSU/WBL ice transducer and run your machine in SONAR CHART mode, either in full or split screen zoom, whichever you prefer. There is NO advantage to flasher mode that I can see, that's old school, and the chart is so much easier to interpret. There are some pretty decent videos online. To see this for yourself- search YouTube for X-67C Lowrance Ice Machine.

Start with these settings:

*CHART SPEED and PING SPEED to 100%.

*SURFACE CLARITY and NOISE REJECTION to off or low

*AUTO SENSITIVITY off

*AUTO DEPTH off

Adjustments as needed:

1. Set the UPPER and LOWER DEPTH RANGE LIMITS to display the part of the water column you are interested in targeting.

2. Adjust SENSITIVITY up until lure can be easily seen (usually 70-90% depending on water conditions).

3. Adjust COLORLINE so that the lure is just starting to turn blue. When a decent sized fish comes in it will usually show some red or even yellow on the display.

4. If getting interference from other flashers (or other noise) use NOISE REJECTION to tune it out.

*Start at low and work your way up to high as needed. You'll have to adjust your SENSITIVITY after each increase in filter level.

*In extreme cases of interference from other flashers, you may have to adjust the PING SPEED and/or raise or lower your transducer in the hole a few inches.

Using these tips and running in CHART MODE, I've never had a problem tuning out other flashers.

5. Use ZOOM when fishing in deeper water. I like 2X or more ZOOM in anything deeper than 10'. Use the ARROW keys to adjust the ZOOM window up or down so you are seeing the desired depth range.

The above information will work with any Lowrance or Eagle graph set up to ice fish like the X67C, 334C, or the 522C.

Since last winter, I've been using a Lowrance HDS-5 for ice fishing and it is just a SUPERB machine. smile The settings for running an HDS on ice are somewhat different than those listed above.

Good Luck, I hope this helps you get your Lowrance unit performing like it should.

Can you guys explain your fluttering problem a little more in depth.

As stated, the digital depth readout will ocasionally jump around in tenth/foot increments. For whatever reason, this only affects the flasher screen in that the flasher depth will continue to adjust to the new depth.

This, however, does not affect the graph screen. You should see no flutter on the graph (which everyone will say is MUCH preferred anyway).

I normally fish with split graph screen and the depth readout turned on in the upper corner. I use the depth readout to get my initial depth during setup then completely ignore it as it "flutters". The "flutters" do not affect the graph readout at all. Like I said before, mine works fine even with this issue and the only frustrating thing is not knowing what the solution is (don't bother with the "get a xxx" response, not the least bit interested in a flasher).

I was watching WFN last night and they were ice fishing in Canada. The host mentioned that on a really windy day with flashers such as the Hummingbird FL55 and the units like we are using that the wind will actually cause the water to move under the ice thus causing the depth to change in those tenth/foot increments. You would think that if this was the issue that it should show in both the graph and flasher settings. Just thought I'd toss that out for thought encase you noticed that you were fishing on a windy day versus a calm day.

I think when you're seeing it flutter a little bit and it's just the depth readout up in the corner fluttering and not the actual graph its self, I wouldn't really worry much about it. It's a digital machine that is so sensitive it's determining the depth down to the tenth of an inch. So, if you're fishing in 12.6 FOW and your depth readout is fluttering between 12.3 - 12.9, I guess I don't see that as a big deal(as long as it's just the digital number read-out and not the bottom line on the graph). Maybe try a slower ping and chart speed?

I've owned my X67C since they first came out. I do occasionally get the "freak out" like MNSnow describes where it just seems to go AWOL, but when that happens I turn it off and back on or even pull the 'ducer out of the water for a few seconds and all will seem good. (Unless I'm fishing a rocky lake near another sonar unit, then all bets are off).

From how you describe you issues, I think you might be overreacting here.

Good Luck though! Hopefully you figure it out.

Mine is fluttering in both the graph and flasher modes (don't recall how much the graph itself was moving last night; I was pretty annoyed & didn't spend much time in graph mode). It is not just the depth reading, though. The bars on the flasher move up and down as the depth readings fluctuate, making the flasher useless. Like I said, I will post an update once I try the new transducer.

I received my new transducer and tried it out this afternoon. At the first spot I tried, at 16' depth, it worked great. Then I moved our to 30' depth & it went crazy again. I reset the depth range to 40' but the depth reading and the chart were constantly fluttering. Tried powering it off a few times but it never settled down.

I've decided to give up on my Lowrance. It works fine on my boat, so I'll just use it for summer fishing. I am returning the new transducer and charger & I just ordered a Vexilar FL-20 Anniversary Pack.

Interesting tips Jim. I have to agree with you on the flasher statement. I started in Ice Machine mode and then found the split chart mode, I have yet to use the flasher function since. I am interested in your interference ideas. Let me know what you think, My buddy has a Marcom and I use a Lowrance M68c. If he turns his on while in my shack at the same time as me, it practically blows my transducer out of the water. My depth reading goes nuts and my transducer starts picking up random hits. I like the transducer depth change idea and I will give it a shot, but I have messed with the noise rejection and seen no change what so ever. I do not know how far another unit has to be from me for the interference to stop but is does not seem too far (maybe twenty feet or so). Am I just screwed if another unit is running within ten to twenty feet of mine? When he is only a few feet away seems too close me, but his Marcom is able to funtiion with mine running and he says that other people with Vex's etc. don't seem to be much of a problem.

      Friday was my last sit until Halloween- and oh was it exciting must of been one hot doe in the area...I saw to many deer to count, with all out war between 2 bucks in a standing bean field. I had does and fawns flying around my stand with around 6 bucks all trying to take part in the festivities I was watching. Never did let an arrow go, but just an epic night. This was all in Wisconsin. My son hunted around Isanti and was seeing many deer along with a few bucks moving right before sunset.  Scrapes are starting to appear in both areas we hunt. That cold front really got them on their feet.   We are headed to Montana on Wednesday for our first father/son elk and deer trip.  Already watching the clock. We loaded the trailer and all our gear yesterday. tic toc now with 2 more days of work and then waiting for the school bell to go off at 2:58pm!  We are both jacked along with my buddy who is hunting with us.  Can't wait to be on the mountain Saturday morning!!

      Fall is a key time of year to check for invasive species The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed zebra mussels in Big Fish Lake in Stearns County.  A lake services contractor found adult zebra mussels in two locations in the lake during a routine aquatic invasive species survey. A DNR invasive species specialist confirmed the finding. “It helps a lot when lake property owners, lake service businesses and others notify us when they’ve spotted an invasive species,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor. It is important to carefully check docks, boat lifts and other equipment being removed for the season. Minnesota law requires keeping docks and lifts out of the water for at least 21 days before putting them into another body of water. The DNR recommends these steps for lake property owners: Look on the posts, wheels and underwater support bars of docks and lifts, as well as any parts of boats, pontoons and rafts that may have been submerged in water for an extended period. Hire DNR-permitted lake service provider businesses to install or remove boats, docks, lifts and other water-related equipment. These businesses have received training on Minnesota’s aquatic invasive species laws and many have experience identifying and removing invasive species. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have discovered an invasive species that has not already been confirmed in the lake. Take a photo of any newly discovered invasive species before removing it from equipment. Save specimens or leave them in place until the DNR can investigate.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed zebra mussels in additional locations in a chain of lakes across Otter Tail, Grant and Stevens counties. Perkins Lake in Stevens County, Middle Pomme de Terre Lake and North Pomme de Terre Lake in Stevens County, and Pomme de Terre Lake in Grant County will be added to the infested waters list.  All of the lakes are connected and between Barrett Lake, where zebra mussels were confirmed last month, and Ten Mile Lake, where zebra mussels were confirmed last year. A Grant County sheriff’s deputy contacted the DNR after finding zebra mussels on equipment being removed for the season from Tipsinah Mounds Campground Area at Pomme de Terre Lake. DNR invasive species specialists confirmed adult zebra mussels at several Pomme de Terre locations. After receiving reports of zebra mussels in Perkins Lake, DNR invasive species specialists found multiple adult zebra mussels on several pieces of equipment. They also found an adult zebra mussel upstream between North Pomme de Terre Lake and Middle Pomme de Terre Lake. “This is a key time of year to check for zebra mussels and other invasive species, especially when removing docks, boat lifts and sailboats that have been in the water for a long time,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor.

      Fall is a key time of year to check for invasive species The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed zebra mussels in Sugar Lake in Wright County, after more than a dozen lake property owners reported finding zebra mussels on equipment being removed from the lake for the season.  Wright County staff initially contacted the DNR after finding a zebra mussel attached to a boat. Following that report, 13 lake property owners reported zebra mussels on their docks and boat lifts. DNR invasive species staff found numerous adult zebra mussels in both the north and southeast ends of the lake. “It helps a lot when lake property owners, county staff and others notify us when they’ve spotted an invasive species,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor.

      Who is all headed to Camp the next couple weeks?   Hoping to good weather and hunting all.   I will be in the second weekend.  Planning on my traditional spot.
    • Fish Head
      I do a lot of lead core trolloing too.  My expierence has been that when it really cools down like it did a couple weeks ago, you are better of changing tactics to sucker minnows. Maybe others will have a different opinion. 
    • outdoor1
      Thanks for the info!  I just started lead core trolling this past summer but it really quit about 3 weeks ago. I thought it was water temperature but it sounds like I need to switch locations. I had been trolling 24 to 34 feet on Big Bay at 2 mph with #5 raps

      Special hunts to prevent overpopulation of deer and protect resources will occur this fall at several Minnesota state parks, according to the Department of Natural Resources. Access to the parks will vary during these hunts. Some parks will remain open to all visitors, some will have limited access and some will be open only to hunters with special permits (closed to the general public). The deadlines for youth and adults to apply for a special permit to participate in the hunts—which include firearms, muzzleloader and archery options—have passed. “These hunts are a cost-effective way for the DNR to help manage deer populations. And for some youth-only park hunts, they’re a great way to introduce youngsters to deer hunting,” said Tavis Westbrook, natural resource program coordinator for the DNR’s Parks and Trails Division. When there are too many of one animal or plant species in an area it can start to throw off the balance of other species. For example, when there are too many deer in a park, they tend to feed on certain trees and native plant communities. Because of this, the DNR occasionally allows deer hunts as a means of protecting natural resources. The DNR advises anyone planning to visit a state park between now and the end of December to check online or call ahead to see whether a hunt is planned and whether the park will be open. The DNR also advises wearing blaze orange when visiting parks where hunts are taking place. Visitors should check for hunt-related information at the park office when they arrive, look carefully for hunt-related signage and follow instructions. For a list of parks that are open, partially open or closed during the 2018 hunting season, visit mndnr.gov/state_parks/hunting.html or contact the DNR Information Center at [email protected] or 888-646-6367 (8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday). Details on which areas of each park will be affected by the special deer hunts can also be found in the “Visitor Alert” boxes on the individual park webpages at mndnr.gov/parkfinder.

      Deer: The animal Adult female white-tailed deer weigh about 145 lbs., and males weigh about 170 lbs. The biggest white-tailed deer recorded in Minnesota was a 500-pound buck. A whitetail’s home range is about 1 square mile. Deer hunting There are nearly 500,000 firearms deer hunters in Minnesota. Last year, 35 percent of Minnesota firearm hunters successfully harvested a deer. About 53 percent were antlered bucks. 70 percent of Minnesota’s firearms deer harvest typically occurs during the first three or four days of the season. The average hunter spends five days afield during Minnesota’s firearms deer season. The highest deer harvests occurred during the early to mid-1990s and from 2000 to 2008. From 2000 to 2008 the harvest topped 200,000 deer each year. The high harvests in the early 2000s occurred at a time when the overriding philosophy was to reduce the deer population so it wouldn’t grow out of control and to address certain environmental, economic and social concerns. Harvests in the 1970s never topped 100,000, while harvests in the 1980s were under 150,000. In 2017, the harvest was just over 197,500. Deer licenses and seasons In total, about 666,000 deer hunting licenses and permits (all types) were sold in 2017. The three primary types of deer hunting seasons are firearms, muzzleloader and archery. Firearms season opens on Saturday, Nov. 3; muzzleloader on Saturday, Nov. 24; and archery season opened on Sept. 15. The DNR Information Center received over 4,600 inquires via phone and email the week leading up to last year’s firearms deer opener. The majority of the questions were related to the upcoming deer season. Firearms hunter safety The three most common factors in hunting-related firearms incidents are careless handling, not knowing the safe zone of fire and not being sure of what’s beyond the target. The three tenets of safe firearms handling are: Treat each firearm as if it is loaded by keeping your finger off the trigger; always control the muzzle of your firearm; and be sure of your target and what is beyond. Since 2011, the DNR’s 4,000 certified instructors have provided firearms safety training to 177,453 students. Deer management in Minnesota The DNR is entrusted to manage the deer herd on behalf of, and for, the benefit of all Minnesotans. The DNR recently completed a strategic statewide deer plan to guide efforts related to deer over the next 10 years. Hunters help manage deer populations, and hunting also is a tool used to control deer diseases, including chronic wasting disease. Opinions on how deer should be managed are diverse, and the DNR values all opinions. Deer population management affects many other natural resources.
