My HDS 12 recently met up with a pice of 1/2 oz tungsten. The screen was no match needless to say. Anyone have any knowledge about being able to repair it. I've removed the unit and have it inside to keep moisture from getting inside the head unit. It was working when turned off after the accident. Any help or guidance is appreciated. I called lowrance and they offered no assistance.

No shock that Lowrance offered no help, that's common for them. I had it happen a couple years back and had to replace the unit, hope you get your situation handled better than I did. They just told me it couldn't be fixed and I needed to give them a credit card to buy another one.

That's almost verbatim what they told me. And they didn't even offer a trade in discount or anything....

I think you're SOL. They probably have one of the worst customer services in the world. You're probably gonna have to replace the entire unit. That's what usually happens in this situation. Sorry about your unit. Hope you get it taken care of.

I love the Lowrance units but this is the reason a lot of people are going to Humminbird Helix and I can't blame them. I think it has a great picture just have to teach myself to look at their 2D sonar.

I did this but went to the Solix units. The Mega imaging is by far better than my HDS 12's, glad I made the switch.

Check out Russel marine products. They have tempered glass screen protectors for most of the newer units.
