had the lowrance 7x elite with chirp installed, finally got to get the boat out Saturday, everything was working fine with depth, marking baitfish, big arches. Moved spots then would only read 2 ft and picking up a bunch of wash even with motor off. Trailered boat transducer looked fine same as before I took it out.

I would agree with Corndog.  One day I was in water I knew was like 30 ft.  All the sudden my unit showed 8 ft with all kinds of things showing up on it.  I scratched my head for several minutes before I happened to accidentally notice the transducer cable was not plugged in good to the back of the unit.

All connections good and tight transducer clean. Called lowrance they say to reset it and make sure right transducer is on settings, so won't know tell I get boat in water on Friday or sat if it's working right

Your screen was blacked out with 20# stripers and the depth showed 2 feet.

Did you make a cast?  [smile]

I've had that issue with my HDS10.

I cleaned off the transducer with rubbing alcohol and haven't had anymore issues.

Got the blue wave out sat and sun morning. Fish finder worked great, think I had wrong transducer in the settings, reset no more problems. Caught 2 box fish sat, 4 overs on sun and 1 white bass. Donated plenty of tackle, received some ax lures today, they look great can't wait to get out again.
