Question about GPS

Open Question

Raymarine troubleshooting The unit is not identifying the transducer. It is not reading bottom or any metric depths. When I run program to identify external transducer it does not locate it. When I turn to sonar internal. It shows the screens but does not identify depth or images on the bottom. Do I need to do anything to configure. Have reset to factory and it has not worked.

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.

jmiller,

Sound like your getting turbulence from the hull or your angle is allowing cavitation under the transducer. Look under the hull where the traducer is mounted and look for a part that has no obstruction including saltwater pickups, hull relieves, etc. The other thing to check is to take a strait edge on the bottom of the transducer to ensure the angle is slightly forward than the hull.

press and hold first softkey during power on to "RESET to Factory Defaults" all waypoints will be lost. check the GPS, the actual antenna on arch (mushroom or hockey puck) is the green light flashing every 5 seconds? check at night, it is dim

SOURCE: No depth reading while on plane.

Depending on your transducer type, you may have a liquid filled type that simply needs refilling. If this is the case check for leaks and get it redone. If not it could be transducer placement or cavitation under the hull.

Hello, our Raymarine ST40 depth sounder on our trailer sailer has stopped working only shows 0.00 depth on the display screen. However the metres symbol now flashes on/off. I have checked the cable...


now there is a chance that the transducer is bad ,, but I would check the battery voltage and make sure you have a soild 12 volts to the unit. also in my many years of working with and installing these units on boats I have see the needle pins ( where the plug inserts in the back of the display unit ) bend and/or break off completely. look in the plug area of the display unit and make sure all pins are intact. one more place to look for the problem is in the plug itself, take the plug apart and inspect the wire connection and make sure they are all good. if after all the above has been checked then I would assume that it is the transducer itself.
if you have anymore questions with this problem, please feel free to write back and ask,

When at speed i tend to lose sight of the bottom it becomes very broken. Also the depth reading takes a while to record depth.


What you are experiencing sounds like air bubbles crossing the face of the transducer. If you have a transom mount transducer check the face of the transducer. Make sure that it is clean. Also make sure the front of the transducer is a tiny bit lower than the back. The digital readout on the screen will only happen when you have a strong signal of the bottom.

My depth finder loses its depth reading at about


You need to set the transducer lower. When at speed, the hull of the ship raises up out of the water and hence your transducer is probably not deep enough at these times to give a proper reading.

Raymarine ds500x brand new works good but will give false bottom readings occasionally corrects itself fairly quickly 30 seconds to two minutes wondering why it does this and how to correct it


If the transducer is not correctly mounted this may happen due to air, etc. If the unit never gives a depth reading that looks like dashes
( - - ) then there is likely nothing wrong with it aside from the transducer placement.

My raymarine ds600x is losing bottom at 120 feet...water temperature is at 220. I have a thru hull transducer...Im wondering if my ducer is fouled up with marine growth or is it a bad ducer or head unit.....


The depth loosing bottom would certainly indicate that you may have growth fouling the transducer, however the sea temp 220 degrees indicates possibly a different problem. Start by being sure the transducer is squeaky clean and see what that does for you.
