Standard Horizon DS45 Depth Instrument

My Horizon DS45 stopped working suddenly about two weeks ago (was working one minute and then it was the two dashes). I was in pretty turbulent water at the time (motoring against a 4kt+ current) so its possible that it went to the "dashes" mode because of "aerated water" and then just didn't reset. I can't get it to go to simulation mode, and don't know if that is a clue as to what is wrong.

Anyway, I'm trying to determine if it is the instrument, the cable, or the transducer. The only first step I can think of (while the boat is in the water) is to plug in a "known good instrument" and see it it works. So, I'm in search of a working DS45 instrument and/or a working complete DS45/transducer/cable setup.

Also, any advice about troubleshooting the system would be much appreciated.
