View Full Version : Loud clicking & stereo popping from depth finder

07-05-2012, 05:50 PM
I have a 2004 X30 with the stock depth finder. There is a loud clicking noise (it's even in a pattern) that is coming from the sending unit all the time (even when the boat is out of the water and the key is off), and it's so loud that I can hear it standing 10 feet from the boat. The worst part is that the clicking comes across on my stereo as a very loud popping sound, with the same pattern. Also, 90% of the time the depth finder doesn't work, it just flashes the last-known depth. Anybody have any suggestions or a similar problem? Thanks.

I am experiencing these same issues however I have an aftermarket Humminbird HDR 650 with the transducer mounted to the inside of my hull. I RTV siliconed it to the hull next to the drive shaft hole, per the instructions in the manual. Worked great for over a year, now I get the popping like you are experiencing.

Any update ?
