Check for a loose connection or corrosion at the transducer and the unit. Less likely, but bent or broken pin on the connector at the back of the unit. It always works until it doesn't, so that information is of no use.

I will see if I can get mine off the hull for testing. Still have found no procedure. Thinking about just replacing the sounder with another unit.

Hi,
by refilling the ink crg. you probably destroy head electronics. Buy new one ORIGINAL, and try then.If you must refill ink be carefull, rather buy new reffiled ink, where the chip is resetted.

Hope that helps!

2003 chevy trailblazer cooling temp running 230


Smart man using a scanner for the actual temp. Assuming you're not losing coolant....2 things I'd look at here, 1st is you may have air in the system, make sure to purge all the air. 2nd is your fan clutch, I've replaced a few fan clutches in my own Trailblazer. Have had them bad right out of the box brand new. Have had bad brand new fan clutches on 2 of my last Trailblazers. You should hear it engaging especially in stop and go traffic.

Try a hard reset first.Disconnect the machine for about 30 minutes and reconnect after that to see if the issue is resolved.

It sounds like your transducer has gone bad. You may be able to find a replacement on Craigslist or eBay, since this is an older model. Transducers are pretty sensitive to bumps and drops because of the crystal inside.

My depth finder loses its depth reading at about


You need to set the transducer lower. When at speed, the hull of the ship raises up out of the water and hence your transducer is probably not deep enough at these times to give a proper reading.

Raymarine ds500x brand new works good but will give false bottom readings occasionally corrects itself fairly quickly 30 seconds to two minutes wondering why it does this and how to correct it


If the transducer is not correctly mounted this may happen due to air, etc. If the unit never gives a depth reading that looks like dashes
( - - ) then there is likely nothing wrong with it aside from the transducer placement.
