Furuno 1623 Radar reading "no heading pulse"

My unit will turn on and show a display will read "no heading pulse" across the top of the screen. I can not find my operator's manual and I am at a loss as to what to do.

    I don't have quite the same problem but when the radar is set to transmit, nothing is received. The scanner is going around, could it need a new magnetron??

  • svtaravana Nov 11, 2008

    My radar works perfectly all day 24/7 while at anchor or underway in calm conditions, but if it gets rough out there, after awhile I get the "no heading pulse" message. Removing the radome cover the first time revealed that the toothed pulley on the drive motor had come loose and slid up the shaft, blocking the rotation of the spinning antenna. Tightening the set-screw seemed to do the trick until it happened again. But the pulley looked just fine. Now, giving the spinning antenna a little "push" will get it going again, and it works just fine as long as the boat is not pitching around. The radar probably has less than 50 hours of "transmit" time. Maybe the drive motor? Maybe the belt? No sign of cable damage, all connections are fine. Any ideas?

The messages “NO HEADING PULSE” and “NO BEARING PULSE” means that the display is not communicating with the scanner (antenna). Both of these signals are generated in the scanner if you get this error check that the antenna cable is firmly connected and that the contacts are clean and corrosion free.

If the connection at the display looks good and feels like it’s properly connected, check the cable for any damage If you find damage you could try to repair the wires BUT (because of corrosion and moisture problems) IT IS STRONGLY REMENDED that the cable be replaced, but it’s kind of expensive $275.00.

The Part number is 000-130-034. Depending on the marine shops in your area they may have it in stock (or they can order one) but you can get it directly from Furuno at;

I hope it’s just a loose connection. Good luck!

This was my problem exactly, a loose connection. A year and a half later and I checked out this forum. I had the head off, there was a loose set screw on the pulley too. Thanks a lot!!

No heading pulse


Open the dome cover and check the belt that spins the array. Sometimes the gear on the motor that holds the belt comes loose and will not spin the array. I have seen this on 4 radars and all were about the same age. The gear has a small allen head set screw. Move the gear down and tighten the screw down. If you are still having issues there are some more troubleshooting techniques you can do, but you will need a multimeter to test voltages coming from the display.

Furuno model 141 marine radar screen display randomly disappears and re appears some seconds to minutes interval. Suspect contrast control. all other functions serviceble and normal


It may be the flyback transformer that sends HV (12,000 Volts) to your screen. That could be due to age, cold solder joints. Get it checked out by a technician. There may be more going on than I suspect. If it happens when you jar the unit (hit it) then more than likely the flyback transformer is the problem.

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.

If the radar has over 2000 hours it may need a magnetron replacement. Mid-Shore Electronics in Maryland can provide that service if you require it.

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
