Sounds very much like the wiring plug connections in the back, always overlooked but so important that connections are tight and contacting.

Sounds like the transducer is installed at the wrong angle or in such a way that it is getting a lot of air from something on the hull. If it is a transom mount, check that it is angled correctly and not too close to the motor or aft of some kind of thru-hull fitting that will cause turbulence.
