What i did I turned the SI Sensitivity offset to -7 and the white wave lines went off the screen. If i turn the SI sensitivity offset the opposite way to say 6 or 7 the white wave lines come very close to the central of the screen.
Looks like if I turn SI sensitivity offset to -7 it gos away.

Is that what the SI Sensitivity offset is for ? Because it worked BUT i will see what it really looks like on the water when I go out again.

“SI Sensitivity offset” adjusts the left panel of the SI view if that left SI view is consistently brighter or darker than the right SI panel  ...

If there is not another unit running the same frequency (which can cause crosstalk interference) - try Sonar Restore Defaults or full Restore Defaults  ...

I have that one that has wave lines to transducer and one other solix with nothing attached to it to share transducer. The other two soilx are in front bow and they have the trolling motor transducer but all 4 are link with enternet box. The two fish finders at bow has only a DI transducer to it.

When I do turn the it to -7 it gos away or it might be pushing off to the left side of screen. But its not there anymore. BUT again I have to take it on the water next time to really see what the screen looks like. If the screen looks like crap I might have to go back to 0 for offset and try something different.

What do you look of trying contrast if offset doesn't work ?

Let me clear it up better.
I have 4 units
2 bow units that only use the DI transducer on front motor only.
The 2 units on consoler. The right unit has the Back side scan transducer attached to it only the left unit has nothing attached.  But all 4 units are attached to enternet box.

But i can turn all 3 units off and set in my garage and just turn on that right unit on side scan on mega and the wave lines come up. I turn SI Senit offset to -7 and it gos away.  But i have to see what it really looks like when I'm in the water and hopefully the screen looks ok and not washed out or crappy looking. Then I have to turn offset back to 0

I did have the others off. Funny thing is when i turn the offset to -7 it gos away on that one unit but it still shows on the other three units. I'm thinking the enternet box is sharing those white wave lines from the transducer.

But if I put it in 800 Khz or 455 khz for side scan it god away on all 4 units.  Transducer is brand new from the unit.
