Hi, I installed an HDS8 with structure scan and a sirrius weather antenna about 6 weeks ago, on my first test run the entire unit shut down twice and restarted. I took the boat to the keys for a week, didn't get to fish much because of the wind but had no issues with anything the times I did get to go out. Went out locally today and was using structure scan to try and find some rockpiles, just found my first one and I start getting intermittant NO SOURCE errors then after a few minutes it became permenant.. I'm back home and just tried to bring up the weather overlay and get a message NO MODULE DETECTED so it looks like it is the module itself not the transducer.
I'm about to start contacting Lowrance and hopefully they will agree and let me send in the module only for exchange as ripping out the transducer will be a pain.
I did think of going to buy a spare ethernet cable to run from the module to the HDS to see if I could get lucky with a simple fix.
Any thought from anyone before I start the customer service circus ??????. Thanks.
