If its under warranty, send it back. They will say you grounded it or hit log. If not, buy a new one. You can't fix them.

Says no transducer connected and is in simulator mode. How do I get out of simulator mode?

I had this unit but gave it away recently. From memory, you just need to connect the transducer and make sure the transducer is in water. If not, it reverts to Demo Mode.

Check to make sure the transducer is hooked up correctly, and check the actual transducer for signs of damage. Transducers are fragile, and a good whack can break the crystal inside. For more troubleshooting, here is a helpful link with the Owners Manual for your Humminbird.

I get an error msg that the transducer is not connected. How can I check idf the transducer is faulty


If you can find someone with a Humminbird that has the same pin configuration on the transducer cable, switch yours out and put the transducer in a bucket of water to see if it works. Otherwise, make sure the cable at the plotter end is firmly placed in the socket, and that no pins got bent in the past. Some of these models came with a metal clip that holds the end of the cable(s) tight to the plotter and is held tight by the mounting bracket screws.

I have no idea, I use these same ones and havve several mounted and they are used both in summer and winter, never had one leak. I also looked up these and did not see where there were any issues with this problem. I suggest you call Humminbird and talk to them, they are usually very helpful.

Don,

We would recommend that you replace the transducer (if you want to keep the transducer inside the hull you may use the
XP 9 20 T with temperature and you can use epoxy to mount the transducer) If you want to keep in the compartment you have created you may want to just put water in the compartment with the transducer so its not shooting through the air.

If you have any other questions please email customer service at [email protected]

Thank you,
