Is it only at speed when it will not show fish or is it all the time?

How long has it been set up this way?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
all the time.since new.. even stopped. I have portable that gets fish but not the new one.
Expert:  Charles replied 2 years ago.

does the portable have the same transducer plug that the 196 does. If so plug it into that unit. if you still see no fish, it is the head unit. If you do now see fish, it is a bad transducer.
