Check your transducer cable where it plugs into the unit. Check the ears on the cable organizer. Also check the tabs on the unit that hold the cables to the unit. If all is good maybe time for a transducer. Good luck

There is no "cable organizer" with a Helix 5 or Helix 7. They have individual friction fit receptacles for the cable plugs. Just make sure the transducer plug is firmly inserted so it bottoms out.

Pulled the head and both cables had pulled some. Reset and took a short run,all good.
Will have to keep an eye on it.The caps don't fit very tight and my boat is a rough ride.
