Refitting a Depth Sounder Transducer

"Before replacing the transducer, I decided to make a simple check of the control head to eliminate the possibility that it might be the problem. A neighboring boat in the marina was equipped with the exact same model of Datamarine D/S, so I removed the control head from our boat, and connected it to the transducer aboard the sister ship. There the unit worked fine. The control head was good; our problem was either in the transducer or the cable connecting the transducer to the control head."
