Default GPS is Screwed Up

I have a Raymarine Raychart 435i GPS Chartplotter that has random black vertical lines running all over the screen. Not sure what is causing this, but it makes reading coordinates very difficult. Does anyone know what the problem could be? Should I consider it to be broke? Any help would be great. Thanks.

Try clearing the trail.

It's not the trail lines. Every screen you go to it has these black lines. They are scattered everywhere all over the screen. Any thoughts?

Call Raymarine for an RA #. Send it in for repair. If the black lines don't appear in the same place on every screen, the is a problem in the video controller. It the lines are always in the same place, you have a problem with the screen. If the black lines move across the screen you are being contacted by aliens, who may be interested in acquiring Raymarine to thwart the evil Garmen.
