A test bucket wont work, A 200 khz transducer will generally not work in anything less than 2' of water, due to surface clutter. If the transducer is working, you should hear it make a ticking sound.

When you got the 17000 foot reading was your range set to auto?

How is the transducer situated on the boat? Sometimes turbulence and bubbles from the hull can cause erroneous readings, including unrealistic depths, or no depth at all. Stop the boat and turn off the engin e and anything electrical to see if problem repeats itself. If it only crops up when the boat is moving then it is most likely the transducer location.

SOURCE: Depth Sounder does not display depth

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.

SOURCE: I recently bought a LSS-1

I believe I'm correct in saying that the LSS-1 for side and down scanning will only work on the HD systems.

Unit will show correct depth for a short time and then reset to 2.2 feet and stay at that reading for long periods of time!

I assume that when it resets to 2.2 feet that the readout is flashing. If so the it sounds like you have a bad transducer as the problem has been getting progressively worse.
The transducer needs to be replaced. Sounds like the sending crystal is fractured.

My depth finder on my E-120 works for a minute or 2 and gets stuck. My tri data also works for a minute or 2 and then the depth portion shuts off with only lines running thru and no numbers. Other portions...

Hi! You will need to reset the unit to work normally. Try this, remove the battery and press/turn the power button for 10secs. while the battery is removed. Put in the battery and turn the unit on and see how it goes. This should reset the system and resolve the problem. Hope this helps and have a good one!

Hello, I have got the board gigabyte

First of all try using onboard graphics to start with. Reset CMOS(pull the round watch-style battery out) and let it sit for about 2 minutes. It states it is an SLI board but you are running ONE card. If you have luck with the onboard graphics working, download the drivers from OMEGA DRIVERS. I use them in every PC build I have done. The CD with the drivers may have been on the shelf for MONTHS! Also be sure that you have the single graphics card in the PCIExpressX16 slot, and not the X8 slot. The X8 slot would be used IF you running a second card in SLI mode.

It sounds like a software issue. If the depth still shows numbers and not dashes, that indicate that the DSM and trandsucer is working. Be sure that you have the most recent software for the E120 and for the DSM. You can find info about the current software and how to load it on Raymarine's website. It is important to perform a factory reset once the new software is loaded. If that doesnt solve your trouble, you will need to consult Raymarine's tech support dept.

My lcx15mt will not respond. How do I reset it?

check internal 5 amp fuse.  Take screws out and open unit.  Fuse is in the middle of the circuit board.  It is a regular 5 amp automobile fuse. Bob W.
