Default No temp reading on Garmin 198C Sounder

Guys

Yesterday I was getting temps in the 80s which made sense...today it read 361* and climbed.... Then it just stopped displaying the temp altogether. I was losing depth/sonar at speed too, but I blame that on the transducer kicking up. I would push it back down after slowing, and it would work again within a minute or so...anything I can do to get my temp reading to be accurate again?

Thanks

I'm always fixing some shitty ground connection, but never on the Garmin.

Growth is no issue and I believe there's no paint on the transducer.
