Left side of side image sgreen is blank on all possible

Customer Question

Left side of side image sgreen is blank on all possible screen options. I have tried raising motor which was never a problem before. Also tried resetinh factory defaults. All other screens and functions work perfectly. Is this a soft ware or a transducer gone bad?

Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

One side of the screen being blank is not normal in any way; something in the system is probably 'broken' (-it might be the mounting, see below). But what to do and what to check on, depends upon the maker and model # ***** the device with said screen - please let me know.

If the sonar transponder has come a little loose in its mountings, that might cause the problem... and if the sonar transponder has suffered from a recent collision or grounding of the vessel, that might also have caused this problem.

Is your sonar transponder a through-hull type, or an in-hull type? Have you checked whether it is loose in its mounting or that the mounting might be defective otherwise ?
