No BP on Furuno 183o radar

Got a problem with a Furuno radar scanner.Display did not come up.I found a short mosfet in the modulator board(SK777)After changing the transistor,display shows no BP(bearing pulse)and I cannot enter in TX mode.I am using my own cable,so this is not the problem.No schematics
apart from the information in the user manuel.
Antenna is turning ok,but there is no magnetron current either.

SOURCE: Furuno Radar 1623 and 1715

Hello.

According to the operating manuals of the two radars (found on Furuno's Website (www.furunousa.com), they do use the same antenna cable.

Hope this was helpful.

SOURCE: Hi, I have a Radar Screen. Furuno 1942 MK2 . What

A 1942 is a 6 kw radar a 1720 is either a 1.5 or 2.2 kw dome. The two will not work together. Besides the cabling is different. Also the radar cable on a 1942 is round where as the 1720 is square. The 1942 display should work fine on a 1943 navnet radar.

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

No data at >1mile


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

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?

Hi, Furuno 1731 radar - no sweep/echo seen on screen. Scanner is rotating and other display is normal.


Go to longest range and full Gain min Rain and Sea Clutter
Do you have speckle? Yes = Receive OK, Wiring OK,No transmit (magnetron or modulator) No = Most likely a broken wire
There is a very tiny coax (shielded wire) that is know to lose its' center conductor, which is very delicate

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.
