Are the corners broken / open?

Water intrusion eventually causing issues?

That looks more like there is some issue with the sonar signal or the processing of sonar into an image or showing you the wrong part of the sonar image. I have a feeling your screen is fine. Switch to a view where the chart covers the entire screen and see what that looks like.

Possibly could be a settings issue if something got bumped... The fact that it says 'clear cursor' in the upper right tells me that the cursor could be selected onto somewhere it's not supposed to be and it's just showing you the wrong part of the screen. get your manual out and make sure the settings are right and you understand how to make selections and release the cursor and or Zoom. I know on my HDS I can zoom to some weird areas of the screen and it doesn't look right. Or call Lowarnce, they have great customer service.
