I am having an issue with my Raymarine i50 tridata -

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Electronics Specialist I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Electronics Specialist can help you best.

The depth meter stopped working and just shows 3 dashes i ran the diagnostics, and it says "Fail 2"

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Marine Electronics Specialist should be aware of?

Dont know if it matters, but it stopped working while the boat was sitting in a harbor, not out at sea
