Question about Lowrance Elite-4x DSI Sonar with 455/800kHz Transom Mount Transducer 000-10487-001
When powered on, the depth indicates 60ft and the image is pretty much blank. There is no water temperature reading either. The unit has worked fine for about a year or so and after this winter I get back out in the boat to find the sonar is not working.. any ideas?? or thoughts?? Can i buy a replacement transducer for this model. If so does anyone have a link? Thank you so much for any help!

Transducer not parallel to bottom - kicked up. Manually set depth to see if the auto depth is the problem.

So the depth is flashing and you don't see any bottom return at all, right?
Are you in the water, or trying it out before you put the boat in the water?
If you are not in the water, try it out in the water because it can be difficult to get any kind of return out of the water.
Try resetting the X67c to factory defaults:
1. Turn unit off
2. Press and hold the down arrow key
3. Press PWR while still holding the down arrow key, the unit will enter production test mode. Let go of the down arrow key
4. Press EXIT 5 times
5. Press ENT and the unit will shut off
Turn it back on and if you still have the same problem, depth flashing 0.0 or 0.5 or 60 probably and no bottom, then a good bet would be a bad transducer.

Had the same issue with another brand. Turned out the transducer cable was picking up noise from other cables (power, trolling mtr. etc). Try moving the transducer cable away from any other cables. I put the cable in a 1/4 " plastic housing up to the point where it was above deck and it stopped all the strange stuff. Not sure about the temp issue??

Check the transducer for any damage on the front part. Also make sure there isn't any damage on the bottom of the boat that is causing air bubbles to cross the face of the transducer. If it works at slow speeds there is definitely something causing air bubbles.
