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.

n the system setup, under “UNITS” I set BEARING to “MAG” (magnetic). This will cause the unit to display course / bearing information in relation to the Magnetic North and match magnetic compass readings. It is not the same as True North! One has to be careful with this setting. There are a number of areas where the earth's magnetic field is locally disturbed, sometimes very significantly. Your GPS may not account for it. - again, under “UNITS” I set “METRIC”.

SOURCE: furuno gps wiring diagram for usb

Hello!
I have the connection diagram for the GPS unit below.  It should be simple to wire up.  You will need a USB to RS-232 converter, which is available in a number of computer shops/Radio Shack.
Hope this helps you out,

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

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

SOURCE: may i upgrade furuno 1920 gps/ploter with radar

If it has a round radar plug in the back then the answer is yes and it already has radar support. However to upgrade your unit to the latest software you will need a dealer for that. It's a very tricky process and if not done properly, you can ruin the bootloader programming that starts the unit. I know of a dealer that does this if you want to check in with them. You can even send them the unit. Try www.mid-shore-electronics.com.

On the lcd display lines are apearing both horizontal and vertical,please help.


Your best bet is to contact Furuno. Replacing the LCD in those displays is very time consuming. I recommend writing your waypoints down or transferring them to a computer while you can still somewhat see the screen.

Unit will not power up. The fuse in the power line is good.


It is possible that their is a fuse inside the display. I would recommend sending the unit to a Furuno dealer to take a look at it. You can contact me: kevin@sun-me.net. We are a Premier Furuno Dealer that does bench repairs in house.

Contact your local Furuno dealer. That system uses the popular RD-30 display unit and should be rather avalible.

Furuno 1621 radar will not power up


With a voltmeter, verify that you are getting 12V at the plug end of the power cable. If so, check the fuses (there should be one or two fuse holders on the back). If all of that fails you will need to send it in to Furuno for repair.

Screen fading with lines in it


I had the same problem with mine - it is 5 years old and very well used. I was told I could send it for repair, but opted to purchase a new unit. You can find service centers on line. The cost did not seem to justify being without GPS and then still having a well used system. This was the best solution for me.
