1197si No Depth on screen
« on: May 16, 2016, 09:56:06 AM »
I recently installed a new transducer transom mounted and ran the wire up to Y connection. When I power up the unit the Depth does not show up on the head unit. The readouts along the bottom of the screen do not include depth although I have set it on the menu.

Sounds like the system isn't seeing the 2D element ..... need more details about what transducer you installed.  Did you add a 2D to the transom or a new SI? 

What was your reason for the new transducer?

I installed a new SI transducer on the Starboard side as the old one failed at the seam and began to separate.

So .... do you have 2 SI transducers?  One for each side of the boat?

I would try to connect the new right side transducer directly to the unit and see what you get.

There are 2 SI transducers one on each side. I will try direct connection. Still wouldn't the screen Depth readout box be on the display. It does show temp.

I may have mis-interpreted your post ..... If you display the 2D on your unit, do you get a correct bottom reading .... does the SI and display of the water column work correctly?

I was thinking your 2D wasn't working, and you may just have a readout problem.

My problem is the screen does not display depth at all the view is not present but is selected on the menu.

i'm wanting to make sure your 2D transducer is working correctly ....If you go to a standard 2D sonar view, do you get a good bottom reading?  This won't work right if not in the water.
