Yesterday I had a problem with the Structure component, getting a NO SOURCE error. I had to soft reset, shutdown and restore defaults before the function operated properly. I have all wiring per Lowrance instructions and the yellow wire to a separate accessory switch. Everything worked fine my last few trips.
When the day began I started up the bow unit first, followed by the console unit (both HDS 8 Gen2 networked with ethernet). Then I turned on accessory switch for the LSS. All this while idling. Placed bow unit on STANDBY and began idling out from the ramp. Sonar worked fine. Paged over to Structure and all I get is a NO SOURCE error. Tried bow machine and got the same error.
I'm very frustrated by this error as I felt cleanly rewiring everything solved my problems. Also had the dimming problems so many have cited here throughout the day.
So my question is:
Is there a start up sequence that I should follow that will minimize the machines from getting confused (or whatever is happening)? OR should sequence not matter at all?
