my lowrance x87 shows the sea bed with no problems but the depth scale reads any where from 600-1000 foot even in 30foot of water.
a new transducer has'nt cured the problem and i have restored factory settings
has anyone got a clue? or can anyone suggest anything before i severely beat it with a sledge hammer.:clap2:

Try a factory reset if you havn't already, sounds like you may have. Press and hold the page key with the power off. Still holding the page key down press the power key and hold that down until a message appears on screen.

I have seen Lowrance units do this when they are powered up before launch. For some reason they will not show the depth. They have to be switched off and on once in the water and then they behave. They also do this if the transducer kicks up and again need to be switched off and on again.
