Check the Positive and negitive terminals It may not be seeing the voltage it needs , I have a strike 7 and it did a similar thing , as soon as the load from the transducer is on it wont load ,, Mine was the dirty Neg cable to the bus bar under the dash

Hi Dave,

On some other models/brands, you need to use an external mic/spkr such as a headset for the VOX to operate. This may or may not also work for your model. Perhaps you can try getting hold of a headset that will fit your model and see if it works.

If you are already using a headset:
1. If it is a compatible model, then something is wrong electronically with your unit and you will need the services of a qualified communications technician;
2. if it is a generic or some other brand/model, then the pins, jacks, plugs or connectors may not be wired to be compatible with your Cobras. You need to get Cobra compatible ones.

Hope this be of some help/idea. pls post back how things turnes ouot or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

I hate to tell you, but that is bad news. But before we jump to any conclusions, first open up the computer and look for the BIOS reset jumper on the motherboard, if you find it switch it to clear CMOS for around 20-30 seconds and then put it back on normal and see if it boots. If it doesn't, there isn't much more we can do, as your motherboard most likely decided to keel over and die.

SOURCE: Lowrance LCX 28c HD with Navionics HotMaps Premium SD chip. Chip worked fine last fall but when I went to use yesterday the Lowrance would not read the chip.

I had the same problem with my handheld Lowrance Hunt C. After installing the card and locking it in place, I had to slide the card "out" toward the locking mechanism. It barely moves, but worked after that. Whenever I load the card, I now slide it out or wiggle it and it works every time.

I'm going Crappie fishing and wan to get better images of fish whether suspended


I don't know where you might find whether suspended fish, but when you get there, if you want better images than being rendered on your Lowrance elite 5 DSL, then get a better unit

The depth finder on my elite 5 Lowrance blinks if I go over 14 mph. And the screen gets very hot after a few minutes of run time?


Hey Robert,
the blinking is usually the result of the transducer losing contact with the water..
As far as the screen getting hot.. that is not good.. do you have this unit mounted in dash? It needs some ~cooling.. just some airflow..

Hi, i have a Lowrance Elite 5 and it won't turn on. Its about 20 months old, there is power to it and the fuse is fine, the night before it copped some rain and have since dryer it out but still nothing,,...


Probably still wet on internal electronics.
I would disconnect it's power input. Open it up & check for moisture. Blow out with gentle dry air or If still damp, place a small cotton bag full of rice inside and let that suck all the moisture out for a few hours.

My lowrance elite 5m hd wont turn on


It's either a software or processor malfunction. Make Lowrance fix it or make it right by you. 3 in a row all with the same issue means they have a major issue they need to resolve.
Don't take no for an answer. I've seen recurrent problems through the last couple of generations of mid priced 4" & 5" systems.

Lowrance Elite 4X fish finder that reads between 1.5' and 2.5'


Hey Anon
The transducer installation is more important than anything.. next to correct wiring! You must make sure the mounting is good,,, if its outside the hull, make sure its sitting 1/16th below the hull with no obstructions.. if its inside the hull, the medium you used to fix the puck to the hull must be porosity free and the puck sitting as level with the WATER as possible..
Now, take the manual to the lake with you and DO NOTHING but read the manual and apply what you read to the unit,,, read -repeat - read-repeat.. forget about fishing... now read-repeat and learn... IF nothing seems to be reading correctly.. its probably the transducer installation.. YOU DID use a/the transducer specifically for this unit!!

How do i install elite 5 dsi on 14' tiller boat


Install the battery cables to the battery for the gas motor.

Here is a transducer installation guide for Lowrance, this is pretty standard for all transducers. Pay attention to how the boat sits in the water when trolling for level setting to match in water.

The GPS component of my Lowrance Elite-5 Gold is malfunctioning about 50% of the time.


Hey Les, Since you have replace both the unit and transducer, you have eliminated/diagnosed most of your problem.. Its in the wiring... sometime when I am in full GPS mode I get erroneous depth readings..?? Have you tried a different GPS module (the "puck")?
