When I first had my Helix 9 mega I thought that I was smarter than the unit. Started making all kinds of adjustments, well I can say I thought that I just ruined my picture. I did a reset default and have left it a lone. The images I am getting are GGGGGREAT. But I did spend a lot of time just going around looking at the bottom.

 In this image, ( first in group ), is the SI range set at 1 1/2 the depth?  If so, that might explain that image.

  I can't move the image here, so this is the post I'm talking about.

I'm sure you are more correct than my long shot guess.   The divide and conquer technique is a good choice.

I reset the unit. disassembled the transducer and mounted in the test tank at home, but the problem persists. I also noticed that the transducer makes a slight noise, a light pop-up is normal? the 2d vision works well, but the side and down vision have the problems described. Help
