I have the same units with the same problem you are having, I changed the DSM 300 to a CP370, things worked fine, a few trips later I started having similar problems, had to replace the network crossover switch, all is well now.
Hope that is of some help.

You will have to use a Furuno pigtail....and can only fire 600 watts.
But it will work.

Overall ...the Furuno FCV 627,FCV585 ,FCV 588 etc... are a more stable sonar circuit...and are very popular.
