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.

WHAT TRANSDUCE GOES WITH THE DS600X COLOR ..WHERE CAN I BUY ?


Hi
Airmar makes almost all of the transducers for Raymarine. From the Airmar FAQ section, your unit is listed. See the link below. Pretty much any marine chandler or Raymarine dealer should be able to order it for you.

Hope this helps

My elite 7 won't read depth when boat gets on plane


The transducer MUST be in contact with the water for it to operate properly. Check and make sure (if it is a thru-hull) that the ducer isn't in the air when you're planing. I've read that wiping the transducer with Dawn dish detergent speeds up the "wetting" of the transducer and makes for a better contact with the water.

Hope this helps.

Can not get clear reading of bottom when travellling over 9 knots


Your in hull ducer is getting turbulence. (in hull or not) A transducer will stop working is the tiniest cabitation or air bubble interferes. If possible, relocate the ducer. If you have a transom mounted ducer, try angling the leading edge up. This is a 90 % chance caused by turbulence on ducer. The other possibility, al;though remote is that you alternator or ignition system is interfering after a certain RPM on the motor.
Try first to manually gain the FCV620. You will always need to manual gain set the unit if you have an in hull ducer.

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 problem is I bought a 600l furuno and it came w/a thru-hull transducer and I wanted a transom mounted trans.I all ready bought a tr/mount and I need to sell the thru/hull.It's the 2" w/speed and temp...


i will exchange this for you, free shipping no charge, just ship it to me to inspect and i will send you the transom ducer no charge, if you have a bronze thru hull with speed and temp to trade for a plastic transom mount with speed and temp, let me know

Raymarine a65 transducer 200kh fine 50kh not reading bottom


First do a factory reset and determine that all the setting are correct. You can get this info from the manual. Remember you will loose any saved way points when you do the reset. If that does not sort you out;Remove transducer from transom mount and duck tape it to a broom stick so that the transducer face is facing down. With the boat standing still in calm water and the ducer hooked to the DSM25 push it below the water and see if it see bottom on 50khz.The idea here is to get the ducer in another location to see that it is not getting reflections of the boat. 50Khz is very prone to reflecting of stuff around it. If you still have a problem I would send the ducer and DSM25 unit back under warrant .No need to send A65 back it should not have a problem.

Depth sounder


the transducer has to be in the water or attached to the inside of the hull if fiberglass with no air between the hull and the transducer. It doesn't transmit thru air.

A65 Transducer


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.
