Datamarine Corinthian s200dl Depth sounder display

Hi all. I know there are some other threads on this subject but they are pretty old now. My transducer works fine and I don't want to replace it if it can be avoided, but my display is wonky. I'm wondering the following:

1. Anybody have a S200dl display for sale? This would be the best solution in my opinion, but I'm having trouble finding one on eBay etc.

2. Anyone know of a successful connection between a S200DL (RCA jack style) transducer and another brand of display, such as the Raymarine 40/60 etc. The manual on my S200DL says it is putting out 210 Khz. Many of the new units are 200khz so this may be a problem. A boat like mine named Maine Sail posted some info on the Raymarine displays with old transducer on his refit, but he said his transducer was 200 Khz.

3. Has anyone used a fish finder as a reliable replacement for a standard depth sounder?

I'm aware of DMI Inc and have been communicating with them. The replacement of the S200DL display with a refurbished unit will cost me $350+ shipping which is the reason for by post. After I get it to where I'm at, which is Roatan, Honduras, the costs will be pushing $500 for an old depth sounder.


Thanks!

Hate to beat up an old thread, but I am new and can't PM for 15 posts. I have the same unit which works, but the display is getting a little weird. I also have the Series S100KL for distance/speed which shows 0 all of the time. Any info on upgrade to Garmin would be great. Purchased a 1980 Catalina 30 last week and working on everything it seems.

What do you mean by "weird"? Some details would help understanding what's going on.

As to the 0 reading on the knot/log, the most common issue is that the paddlewheel sensor is not spinning. Have you pulled and cleaned it?

Carl, I had this problem with mine earlier this year.

Go to the DMI website, and read the FAQ section. There is a BNC connector at the end of the ten feet of wire from the transducer that connects to the longer wire that goes to your binnacle.

My BNC connector (I never knew it was there, thought it was just one long run of wire from the transducer to the display) was cleverly placed in the bilge by the builder (in 1986!!!). It was completely corroded. I simply cut it out and installed new connectors and it works just fine now.

Of course, the paddlewheel is the obvious first thing to check.
