Right Side of SI stopped working. Any ideas?
« on: July 18, 2018, 09:52:35 PM »
I have new Helix 10 SI Mega.  Everything has been working fine and really was liking the Mega Imaging...until Sunday.  I attached a picture of what the screen looks like now.  Left side works great and has good quality images.  Right side is pretty much all black.  I checked the transducer placement to make sure it didnt move, made sure the brackets were tight and checked level.  The wiring looks fine but I can only trace is from the transducer up a few feet until it goes into the boat.  I have multiple units networked so I switch to another unit and it is doing the same thing so it is not the head of the unit.  Any ideas?  System is only 3 months old, are people seeing problems with the transducers?

Always try Restore Defaults 1st  ...

Then - Disconnect all network cables and test the suspect xducer physically connected to a different head unit  ...

If the issue remains - the xducer needs replacing  ...

I had the same problem on the left side on a Helix 9 (G2n SI). Even on a new transducer which we thought was the problem but it persisted. No line of sign issues noticeable on the stern mounted transducer. We finally decided to send the unit back for servicing. I'll update when we get it back. The promised to replace the unit if they can't clear the problem.

I have to say that customer service with Hummingbird is awesome. Very personal.
