If the unit is new and never been set up post installation, that's probably your problem. You have to go into the Installation Wizard and set the unit up properly. There are multiple choices of displays and scanner units to select to obtain the configuration you have. Then the radar has to be optimized (auto-tuned). If you don't have access to an installation manual and feel confident yourself, you'll need to contact a local Furuno authorized dealer or call Furuno USA tech support and they'll walk you through it. Their number is 360-834-9300

Raymarine radar won't power up


Check the wiring to the scanner, eventually test with a multimeter the volt at the scanner, so to find out if the scanner is getting power.

If wires testing reads ok, then probably you have a faulty scanner, and you need to replace it.

My ship furuno radar hasn no sweep only a center dot.all other fed in information like speed,GPS input o.k.


The symptom you describe sounds like a case of no radar targets. To further diagnose, put radar on the longest range and turn Gain to full, Sea Clutter to Minimum, Rain Clutter to Minimum, and observe the screen. The presence of "grass" or evenly distributed clutter indicates that the receiver and cabling is good and the radar may not be transmitting. No transmit is caused by a bad magnetron or a bad modulator in the antenna, or depending on model there is still an outside chance that the power supply in the display has failed.

Furuno 1942Mk2 Problem


it cannot determine a heading, have you also damaged an internal antenna or positioning / gps device inside it? It is unsure which direction it is pointing in but uses triangulation to determine this.

That requires either an electronic compass unit, or gps to achieve correct heading and hence correct orientation of the radar image

No radar target images


Sounds like your video cable inside your radar cable. Also brings your Gain back to zero, STC back to Zero and rain back to zero. Next increase your gain until you see a picture. If none of that is working, check your cable then finally call a dealer.

Furuno radar 1621 do not show targets


You may have a faulty magnetron or one that has gotten old. They do have a life. Find out how many hours you have on the unit and give furuno a call. They will more than likely tell you what they think the problem is.
