Depthfinder Problems


Primetime

Question

I have a Crestliner 1750 fishhawk with a 80HP Yamaha 4 stroke and I put my own depth finder on it a couple years ago It worked just fine for a year and now it will start blinking for no reason it is a Eagle Fish easy II. Was just wondering if anybody knows what would be causing it to do that.

Is it a constant blink or intermittent?
Power cable socket could dirty or warm.
Low battery?

Check your transducer to make sure it did not get bumped out of alignment. It should be level with the floor of the boat not the dead rise angle. Check the bottom to see if you have any deep scratches that would hold air bubbles or excessive dirt. What depth of water does it generally happen in? The unit can loose its signal in less that 5' of water or when there are heavy weeds just under the surface.

Are you running another graph in the boat at the same time? Interference on something else somehow? I know may radio even screws up my Lowrance graph sometimes!

I've also had a transducer die once and it did the same thing.

I appreciate the replys I just recently found this site so I didn't know there was an eq. forum. Anyway the Depth Finder blinks every second. It may have gotten scratched and is holding air bubbles but I stick my hand back there and clean it and it still blinks. Sometimes it will work. So I don't know if I should call eagle and try get a new one? I hate to take the transducer off because I dont like drilling holes in my boat.

Does the whole screen blink or just the depth and graph details?? If the whole screen blinks off it's a power issue, if the depth and graph details blink I would suspect you need a new transducer. People pull their boats up on shore and don't realize how this affects transducers they are not as tough as one would think. I've had an LMS 350 for six years now and have gone through three transducers. I fish a lot of tournaments and that requires pulling the boat up on shore a lot and scratching the transducer.

Chris thanks for the advice. The depth is what blinks. Where do they sell transducers for the depthfinder I have (Eagle Fish Easy 2)? Do I have to buy a specific ducer for my depthfinder or do they come generic?

Yes you do, but they are easy to find. Most good sporting goods store will carry the one you need. They can be ordered easiily also. I would bet a paycheck that's your problem if it works for a little while then blinks for a while then locks on again for a minute then blinks some more.

Primetime,

I would go back to where you bought your finder in the first place. I wonder if there's some kind of warranty on it?

      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.

      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.
