trouble with my fishfinder


thirtysomething

Question

Hey Guys, I'm having complications this season charging my LX3. I saw a post awhile back, but can't find it. Here's my problem. When I plugged in my charger this season, it flashed at 70% for a day, but never got any higher. When unplugged it read, 90, then nothing. It works fine. I plugged it in to charge after Saturdays trip and it read nothing until I backed out the plug almost to the end. ( on the unit, not the wall.) it flashed at 80%. Eventually I plugged it in all the way, and it stayed at 80%. It does say CHGING. Again, when unplugged the meter reads zero.

Any ideas? My cousin thinks I have memory at only a 80 percent charge. Either way the unit still reads 0 when on it's own.

Thanks in advance.

After you have checked with Marcum service dept. and have corrected either the wiring or a defective digital meter,get yourself a volt-ohm meter to check the status of your btry. A fully charged btry should read about 14 volts,then when ya put a load on the btry. it should read about 12+ volts....
Ya don't have to spend alot on a meter but it will give ya a better idea the btry status ...
Battery maintenance will give ya a long and useful btry. life....

Unplug the charger from the battery and check your connections.

It's also a good idea to let everything warm up in the house for a few hours before charging any battery.

I would bet its the contacts with the battery itself.
Souunds just like what happend to me the first time I used my LX3.

I charged mine over nite(12+ hours) and took it to the lake.As soon as I turned it on it read only 70%.
When I got home I discovered that the contacts were not completely on the battery tabs.They were on just not all the way.I pushed them on all the way and have had no problem since.

I had battery issues as well, I used my Marcum on the boat all summer. When I removed it from the soft pack and installed it on the boat, I forgot to unplug the charger from the batter- thus the battery guage was still hooked up and that drained the battery completely dead all summer.

This winter when I pulled it out of the closet I couldn't get it to take a charge, and it would only last a couple hours. I wound up having to buy a new battery....

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.

      The creek  bite has been nothing short of awesome as we come to the end of Sep.... Some days are definitely better than others, but even the slow days plenty of fish can be caught if you put in a little time and effort.   3 and 4 inch z-man plastics as well as grub style plastics have been getting the job done for me again this week.  Also been using some number 5 shad raps just to change things up a bit... 😁
