See this. At about 4 minutes, he shows where the bypass screw is located. The fuse could be an inline one and is probably located by the control switch for the tilt unit, but it may be located somewhere else, depends on who wired it up.

I think there is a nut holding the prop to the shaft and there might be a shear pin going through the prop and shaft. Remove those to get the prop off. It may have been on so long, there might be rust and other junk holding it on. Spray with penetrating oil and let sit to loosen the rust.

In demo mode, it will show fish and bottom details when the transponder is out of water. If the boat is in a mooring, put a metal spade under the transponder, you should see the detail change.

Sounds like one of the pins on the cable from your transducer is bent where it plugs into the back of the unit. check that first, then ensure the plug is all the way in. If it's not that, it's possible a wire is broken in the cable. You could try the wiggle test. With the unit on, have someone watch the screen and wiggle the wire that you can reach working from one end to the other. if the screen flashes or changes while you do this in a certain spot, there's your problem. This kind of problem usually comes from the wire being tight where it goes around a corner. Heat and vibration will finish the job

Try the following.
Ensure the connector going to the controller is secure.

Remove power to the motor by stowing it. Wait until the remote screen goes blank. Deploy the motor to power it up verifying that the System Ready light comes back on when the motor is deployed.
Press any button on the remote to turn it on.
If F code returns then probably controller board will need replaced.
