Question about Furuno 1715 LCD Radar System GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Furuno 1622 doesn't work, water coming out cable at screen!

Have a Furuno 1622. Stopped working and there are vertical lines moving horizontally across the screen, interior lights flicker with radar pulses. Electrical smell! Disconnected everything. Display screen seems to run ok with no radar dome connected. Found water coming out of the cable which connects to the screen! My guess is, since inside the radar dome everything looks bone dry, that there must be a chafe in the cable to the radar dome, and water is coming into the insulated cable and weeping out the connector inside the boat @ the screen.

Wonder if anyone else has ever seen this? Haven't checked the furuno website but probably need to get a replacement cable.

Yes the cable should be replaced if you are lucky, the unit is still OK (display) Try the new cable, draped across the boat before rigging. If fault exists with new cable, replace system, or find a new display on ebay

This problem is caused by a defective LCD display. It is a common problem too. The only way to repair it is to replace the LCD display.

We have a radar Furuno 1622 - the scanner scans but sometimes we got echo and targets, sometimes none, sometime we get echos and targets on a small range display (1mile) but none on 2 or 4 miles range,...


I know this question is very basic, but did you check your gain and clutter settings? That echoes show in short range, disappear, reappear, and are not consistent on long range sounds normal to me. Auto settings sometimes also can get a bit mad, then manula settings makes sense.

Did you run the unit and scanner test?

I have a Furuno 1622 radar. It only shows a ring


I don't beleive this is goning to fix your problem. Open the dome and visually check that it is spinning. There is a maintenance menu though. To open the maintenance menu;
1. Turn the radar on.
2. Wait until the initial screen appears, then press and hold UP and DOWN keys together.
3. In about 10 seconds, the maintenance menu as shown below will appear.
4. Press MENU key to close the menu.

I recognize the problem. It mostly occurs when the plotter is exposed to moist during some days. The contactstrip which connects the computer to the screen gets moist and does not conduct in an optimal way. The result is a non readable screen with stripes

The solution is simple: press on the edges of the screen and the contact is re-established.

1723 Furuno


are you in salt water? yes furuno can fix and reseal, but saltwater inside can not be stopped and you should cut your losses. If you wish, place a desiccant pack inside the unit. that is one of those little silica gel packs that you got with the christmas presents. Be very careful and precise with the rubber seal and you may be able to seal it back up. Temperature cycling can draw in humid air which can not escape, so open it, put a couple of desiccant packs in there, or ship it to Furuno. If the board is corroded, forget it, the board costs too much!

The only place to get that screen is through a Furuno authorized dealer. The unit is sealed and gas filled to remain waterproof. You're best bet would be to send the unit in to Furuno for repair. You wont save much doing it yourself because the cost of the screen makes up most of the cost of the repair. They will also make sure that all the software is up to date for the new WAAS satellites that recently went on line.

Have you tried adjusting the contrast? On that model I believe you tap the power key while the unit is on and you will see 2 sliding scales on the screen, one for brightness and one for contrast. Up or down arrows select the scale and left or right arrows adjust it. If the contrast and brightmness aren't tied into the power key on that model, they're somewhere in the set up menu.

If adjusting the contrast doesn't help then the screen has most likely failed. This is commonly caused by old age, however repeated exposure to extreme heat or cold can cause premature failure.
