Check the wire that goes from the depth finder to the transducer and make sure the connection is good.
Is the transducer mounted on the transom or in your bilge ?

take a look on the back of your boat and see if there is anything mounted below the water line besides your Speedo pick up's.
If it's not there it most likely is glued to the floor in your bilge. It will most likely be near you your raw water pick up.
It will be shaped like a triangle or round with one wire coming out of it.
Follow the wire up to the gauge and make sure it's not damaged and check that it's connected to the gauge.
The only other thing I can think of is if it is a transom mount transducer (back of boat) They are made to swing up if it hits something and you would need to push it down and back in to place.
If you have a digital camera take a pick of the back of your boat and a few of your bilge area and post them. Then I can tell you where it is.

I had to have mine replaced. Now I have two transducers epoxied to the hull.
