    Check the ground wire as it seems it is not grounded correctly.

    Do other screens display normally? If so, you are most likely either picking up interference through the transducer cable (to test that, begin by making sure everything else electrical -- including your engine -- is off), or you have bad or improperly connected / configured hardware (transducer or cable). If none of the screens are normal, try reconnecting just the head unit to a different electrical source.

    Said you got the elite7 with the transducer was it used? My buddy had a bunch of those same issues with his, turned out to be the actual unit not the transducer, also make sure transducer is compatible with your elite 7 if used.
