Hey Guys, I have an HDS8 Gen2 with the sonar no longer working. I get sort of a static display with no bottom reading and no depth. The SS and DS both work fine. I've reseated all the connectors and the transducer looks OK. Any suggestions on what to try next?

Check the transducer installation to see if you have the correct one chosen.

You could have a transducer that has gone bad. If you could borrow someone's spare transducer, you could plug it in, hang it over the boat and see if that is your issue. I have one in my garage in Arlington TX.
