Default shot in the dark

Thought I would throw my problem into the forum to see if there were any similar experiences and solutions. Yesterday, as I returned to dock and put my HS80AE transmission into neutral on my D-6 370 after 3 hours of trolling. The alarm sounded, the red blinker came on and the trans would not engage. After docking I checked the error codes many times after restarting and trying to put into gear. The codes wee 2,4,5 and 2,4,7 , sometimes one or the other. My manual indicated a primary solenoid failure and a secondary solenoid failure. I assume the codes refer to the transmission solenoids. Now I am thinking of replacing them but wait there is more. In 2017 a similar situation occurred with my other engine and I had other error codes too but the problem was that I could not go into gear and replacing the solenoids did not solve the issue. It turned out that the computer needed to be reprogrammed. We assume the computer lost its programming tied to an event of needing to jump the engine at the ramp to get it started the week before. Now there is one other wrinkle. During the last trip on the boat the turbo clamp broke filling the engine room with heavy black smoke, clogging air filters and coating everything. The engine has been cleaned, the filters replaced, oil looks clean, etc. So do I get new solenoids (expensive), look for carbon in the computer, reprogram the computer (very expensive to do here in Mexico), or try something else? I am thinking that I should pull the solenoids from the good engine and put them in the problem engine and see if that solves the problem. They were very hard to pull out last time. Has anyone ever had these codes, 2,4,5 and 2,4,7 and found them not to be the problem? Has anyone heard of the turbo issue leading to the codes or transmission issue?
