272 transducer problem

Hi all. Our transducer is not working. It flashes 18.8 continuously. Just had the bottom scraped. The diver said it had been painted, but he cleaned as much paint off as he could. Is it possible to buy a replacement that can go into the original location?

Thanks,

Jesse

What brand of sounder is it? Is there a gain adjustment knob on the back of it that you can try tuning? A little paint on the transducer shouldn’t necessarily prevent it from working, so it is also possible the problem is with the electronics in the sounder and not the transducer itself.

Check the wiring and the connectors, depending on the make, model and age it might be worth keeping and repairing or replacing.
