possible transducer problem

my sonar seems to have stopped working it no longer shows any depth on the chart overlay & shows 135 foot depth constantly on the sonar page the rest of the chartplotter works ok but none of the sonar.
i can't feel any pulse from the transducer at all my thoughts are trani is floooked anyone have any other thoughts tests i can do?

cheers
