Are you utilizing another unit in your dash? If so, sometimes when both units are on and in sonar mode, their frequencies will intefere with each other causing the vertical lines. I would suggest turning your dash unit off or lowering it's Hertz rate from 200Hz down to 50Hz.
Funny story...I saw this same issue on my boat years ago. I had an X102C up fron and an LCX-19c in the dash. I acutally thought it was some sort of man-made structure and spent time fishing it...DOH!

Had the same issue with another brand. Turned out the transducer cable was picking up noise from other cables (power, trolling mtr. etc). Try moving the transducer cable away from any other cables. I put the cable in a 1/4 " plastic housing up to the point where it was above deck and it stopped all the strange stuff. Not sure about the temp issue??

SOURCE: my fishfinder will not continue
Hello. Your observation is spot on and it is actually a characteristic that is always true when using sonar. Yes, your Lowrance uses the same sonar as a nuclear powered submarine does. The two factors you focus on, water depth and boat speed are perhaps, the two biggest factors when it comes to the quality of the fishfinder. The boat's engine should be in gear at an idle or just above. Experiment with your boat to find the best throttle location for good arches. Usually, a slow trolling speed works best. The depth of the fish can determine if the fish will arch on the screen. If the fish is in shallow water, the fish is not in the cone angle very long, making it difficult to show an arch. Typically, the deeper the fish, the easier it is to show an arch.

Hi, well I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news but those two are NOT interchangeable sorry. The "Drive Current & Voltage" for the Transducer are not the same at all, in fact i don't even think that the "pin outs" are the same? but cannot remember off hand? Unless specifically indicated by the manufacturer, one cannot usually swap transducers among instruments, if one does/did do so, well indeed the transducer maybe damaged and or the output of the sounder maybe damaged as well?
These manufacturers actually make it so that none of their equipment is interchangeable, as they wish to maximize the profits you see, and if one could just swap things among models etc, then "They" would, in their mind anyway "loose out"
So you will simply have to cut a new hole and mount for you new transducer. make sure you mount it in the manufacturers recommended place, the Bow is fine, although I often recommend that it be central to the craft, but, sometimes this isn't possible for varying reasons.
Sometimes if one must retro-fit a new transducer to an existing but different size etc site, then, it is best to "Fill" the old mounting hole(s) with a suitable material, and then re-drill and re-mount it all again.
