Default Garmin 741xs downview quit workin

I just purchased the 741xs and a gt20 transducer. It worked great the first couple of trips but today the downview quit working. The traditional sonar and fishfinder kept functioning but I had no structure scan and the depth kept flashing not picking up. Has anyone had this problem?

Could be a faulty transducer. But, check to be sure you have the transducer selected under Installation:

Menu, Sonar Setup, Installation, Transducer Type.

You can also try a master reset, but be sure to back up your user data first, as this reset deletes all wpts, routes, and trails.

1.With the device powered ON, press and the Home button
2.Choose Configure
3.Choose System
4.Choose System Information
5.Choose Factory Settings
6.Press the Yes button

The device will now restart. When it fully boots, the device will be set back to factory default settings.
