horizon clouding face

I have an Horizon depth sounder and it has clouded up on the face due to sun exposure when I had to leave my boat in Guatemala and return to the VA in the states for emergency open heart surgery.

The depth sounder appears to be working fine, but I can't read the depth due to a clouding on the face. How can I relieve this problem

Unfortunately, there is no recovery from black screen death which is caused by UV radiation. Standard Horizon may be able to replace the screen but more likely will advice you to replace the instrument itself. In future, you need to line the inside faces of the covers of cockpit instruments with something like the aluminized reflective tape used by HVAC technicians on AC vents which blocks UV penetration. Short of than a folded pad of aluminum foil will do. The covers alone are not enough, particularly at low latitudes.

FWIW...
