Re: Lowrance Elite 5 won't turn on

Both power pins are as new.
I did notice what looks like a gap between the screen and the case on one side.
Could be the rubber seal (I'm assuming there's a rubber seal) might have been pushed in through over zealous cleaning.

Re: Lowrance Elite 5 won't turn on

Thanks guys.
I'll take it into a shop and plug it in.
The cable looks good but you never know what's under the shrink wrap. Lack of current might be the issue.
Cheers.

Lowrance Elite 5 won't turn on

Last trip my fish finder was completely dead when I set it up. Since then I've tested the power cable and there is definitely power to the plug pins but still no response when I hit the power button. Any ideas? Who does Lowrance servicing in Auckland. The units at least 3 years old so probably not c...

I just seal them. Don't vacuum them because that makes it easier for the hooks to puncture the bag.

I use one of the Systema meat keeper boxes like this:

I also use my vacuum sealer to seal each jig in plastic so they stay rust free and clean if I don't use them.

Re: Scotty rod holder

Maybe I used the wrong words.
I have a Scotty triple mounting system for sale, not the rod holders.
Thought it went well with your rod holders if somebody wanted the complete package.
