Marcum Problem?


TurkeyNateDog

Question

I was just wondering if anyone else has had this issue and if there is anything I can do to fix it. My buddies Marcum was working great for the first 30 minutes of fishing last night and then all of a sudden the screen went blank. All you could see was a big red mark at the zero level. We tried everything from switching batteries and double checking the connections but couldn't figure out what happened. Is there any way that the unit can be reset? I didn't see anything online and sent Marcum an email but haven't heard back yet. My buddy will probably have to send it in to Marcum but just wondering if there is something that can be done in the meantime? Thanks!

You likely have one, maybe even two fuses inside? One may have went bad?

The MarCum guys around here should be able to help you with this one?

Thanks ED! I'm hoping there is a techi out there that might be able to shed some light on what might have happened. The fuses going out make sense.

Thanks again!

I believe he did ask Marcum customer service, but being so close to Christmas, I'm not sure he got a response. I havn't talked to him since yesterday, so I'm not sure if he got a response from them. Do you suppose a fuse blew?

wgmsa, his problem still persists but now it's Marcum's problem. However, he never did get an answer. Do you know what happened?

I'll weigh in here with the experience with my Marcum LX-3. I bought my first unit last December at Cabela's. Yeah, I know, I was one of the guinea pigs.(I was going to buy a Vexilar, but I had a bunch of Cabela's Cash to use and Cabela's had dropped Vex's)
That unit did exactly what you are describing after about 3 uses (no reading)
I called Marcum, they had me ship it up to Monticello, and they sent me a new unit very quickly, I was only out the 5 bucks for shipping. Used the 2nd unit about 5 times, then it does the same thing. I send it back again and get another new unit. 3rd unit sits in the garage all summer without ever being used. I finally find a transom transducer, mount on my boat and wow! it will not even power up. Send it back and I am now on my 4th unit which has worked the 2x I have used it so far.
Marcum never informed me what they found with the first three.
I am hoping that those were first year glitches that will go away.
Now, having said all that, I think the unit is awesome when it works. (I have not used a Vex much, so cannot compare). The detail is good, the charging system is great and the case is nice. Also, it has a 2 year warranty and the tech support was great every time.
I have not heard of any one else having the kind of problems I have had.
I would buy one again I think.

      To create such an application, developers specializing in investment applications for banks and other financial services are needed. At https://mangosoft.tech/industry/investment-software-development/ you can order the creation of investment applications from scratch or find ready-made solutions.

      great app idea never heard of commercial apps before. it seems to me that the fastest way to find developers on any exchanges, that is, you need to place your ad and then you will be offered all possible options

      It seems to me that this is excellent advice, but one option is not enough, I think. You need to look at a few and decide which one is best, it all depends entirely on the customer.
    • Andre.y
      the best option is to entrust such work to other specialists, but you will have to pay a lot of money for this, but still I think it's worth it to get a quality product that you will have to work with for a very long time, if not all your life

      Tips for Reducing the Stress of Writing High School Papers  
    • leoholmes
      High school is a pivotal time in every student's life. The challenges of this period range from the courses themselves to the social pressures that come from interacting with peers. One of the main challenges high school students face is writing papers. The reason for this is that writing is a skill that develops over time, and many high school students have never had to produce a paper before. High school students need to write papers for many different classes. These papers may be research papers or essays. These different types of papers all require different skills for help write my paper. However, high school students may struggle with all of them. This is because they aren't used to producing writing on a regular basis.

      In today's markets, there are many different liquidity provision. These providers are often financial institutions and banks, and many of them act as an intermediary between buyers and sellers. These institutions tend to send buy and sell orders at prices reflecting the current state of the market and the risk associated with an asset. Liquidity providers also serve the interests of investors by maintaining tight spreads and providing reliable market liquidity. In addition, they efficiently deploy capital to serve the needs of investors.
