Default Transducer problem???

I have a garmin 498, the temp is reading, but the depth is not, I tried to mess with all of the settings, but it will not read anymore. Do I need a new transducer?

Had a similar problem with my Garmin 2010C. Could get the bottom but only at 100% gain. If you have a transducer that you can just hook up and hang over the side, it'll tell ya real quick if thats what it is. I had to replace mine. Also, the temp had quit working months earlier so I installed the seperate temp probe. Now I have an extra already hooked up if it fails again.
