I should have all the parts and possibly a whole replacement unit. If you could just take a photo of the front of it so I know which version it is, then I can tell you for sure. I have parts for everything so I'm pretty confident that I can fix it.
Let me know if I can help.

I can give you a hand with your Datamarine components. I just aquired all of the old stock from Datamarine, and I am doing service and building up new units out of old stock. I have all manuals and schematics. If you need a hand let me know, I'll see if I can help!

Datamarine S200DL depth sounder
On the subject of Datamarine depth sounders....while sailing on some choppy waters on the bay this weekend my depth finder display went to 18.8 and stuck there. There were the letters MSD also on the display. I don't have a manual, but I am thinking this may be an error message for the problem.
Anyone seen or heard of this? Is there a manual available online anywhere?

The "fishfinder"-type depthfinders go as cheap as $80 for a little Hummingbird. I think it's a hoot that sailors go for the standard digital depth readout that tells nothing about bottom conditions while fishermen use the chart-type depthfinder that provides info about depth, depth trends, bottom contour and, best of all, bottom-composition, ie. hardness or softness, grass, obstructions, etc.
I would heartily suggest you ditch your old digital depthfinder for one that provides a lot more info useful for anchoring than just depth. The mounting is a simple inside the hull mount, shooting through the hull itself so there are no external openings.
Good-luck, mate, in your decision. Worse come to worse, toss a sounding lead over the side.
