Default Furuno F/F question

My FCV 600L works great, except that the water temp display in the upper left corner shows this ** instead of the water temp. My transducer has speed and temp.

I could send the unit out and have tested... or the problem may be in the thru-hull transducer. Otherwise, the unit works just fine.

Can someone give me an idea please, if they think my problem is in the unit or transducer before I spend unnecessarly?

Thanks for your input and time.

Fastest and cheapest test is to find someone local with the same install and try your unit on his boat and his on yours.

In my experience most often the problem is a failed temp sensor in the xducer. Capt Adam idea on tesing is the way to go.

Thanks folks. After a little research, my problem may very well be in the tranducer or wiring.

I was hoping that someone had this same problem before and could share their input. Will investigate further this weekend.

Much appreciated.
