Out of Warranty-No sonar image on head unit. GPS and Charting all work fine on head unit. Transducer is good when using another head unit. Any other repair facility other than Humminbird at $255?

Garmin 551s sonar stopped working, no bottom definition or ability to see fish GPS charts and speed all work It shows 3 step image repeats top of the screen / water surface has the transducer packed


Check you transducer cable route and connections. Look for kinks, punctures, & tears in cable. Visually check the transducer for damage. #2 check the units operation on a friends boat with the same set or research a local marine repair shop to check ops. Best of luck on the problem.

How to install wiring


Start at the transducer, mount it then pull the transducer wiring forward using a wire snake. At the same time pull forward 14ga wire to attach to your power leads.
on most boats I've done this process takes from 90 minutes to 3 hours.
The transducer and head unit are easy to put on. Getting wire from point A to point B is the time consuming part.
Once you have your wires pulled forward route them to your head unit at your console. Drilling of access holes may be required.

Connect power, plug in the transducer line.
Black to negative at the battery, red to positive, don't forget to put in the in line fuse included in your box.

Good luck.

Can i put lowrance 5hdi sounder and a lowrange sounder/gps 7hdi on the same transponder unit?


If you want to use two head units off of 1 transducer the answer is yes. You will require a transducer switch that allows you to select which head unit receives the sonar signal.
If you want to swap head units utilizing the same transducer the answer is also yes you can do that.

My fishfinder lowrance x85 the screen is fading is there any way to tell if it is the unit or the transducer and is there another uniy yhat I can use with that transducer so I won;t have to rewire it...


It is not the transducer. the transducer just provides the sonar reading back to the display. The issue is with the display head unit. Have you tried to adjust the contrast for the fading? Does the screen disappear after awhile? Is the head unit mounted close to other navigation equipment, such as a Compass that may cause interference?

Built in transducer is not picking up/transferring depth to graph


I havew a Minn Kota trolling motor on a Z21 Ranger. Minn Kota has a built in (puck type) transducer on the motor. I have a lowrance 135x on the front. The lowrance will read the temp but will blink the depth. I switched out the depth finder with another 135x with the same results. I have a 522c gps unit networked together and mounted on the console that works fine. Any suggestions on the problem with the 135x?
