I had the same thing happen on my DS30 (looks exactly like the DS35 in the first post). I traced the wires and found electrical tape. Suspicious. I unwrapped and found TINFOIL wrapped around each wire. I'm not sure but I'm guessing that was my problem.... The wires had been severed and twised together and actually worked, for a while, with the tinfoil and e-tape setup. When did it fail you ask? When the engine died and we were trying to sail in an anchor in 3kts of wind in an unfamiliar cove, of course!
What am I saying? I haven't a clue.
You could check the wires for something equally as obvious...
Also, since that's what mine did and it was a transducer problem your likely is too. Also, disconnect the transducer and see if it continues to display 2 dashes. I'm guessing it is working correctly and 2 dashes IS what it's supposed to display when it doesn't get a signal. You could also check online for a manual. Two dashes could mean something specific, like "no signal"
