Lowrance not recognizing transducer


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I just bought a Lund Tiller which is my first boat.  Want to take the family out for some perch / smallies while I wait to get through this painful 10hr break in period and can start trolling.


I have mounted a Lowrance Hook Reveal 7 TS mounted the transducer to the back of the boat and ran the cord to the head unit.  The Transducer cord seems to have a good connection to the head unit yet when I power up the head unit it says there is no transducer connected.  


Any thoughts on what could be wrong?

I had the same issue when I installed a hook 7 on my little boat earlier this year - you need to push the transducer connection in harder, truthfully this is the worst connection I have ever seen on a lowrance unit


It will recognize the transducer whether in or out of the water

I actually had the plug in upside down so glad I hadn't tried to force it any harder. When I originally set it up it was in the garage after dark. The groves on the female end of the connection only start half way through the hole which makes it hard to see.
