Question about Furuno 1942 Mk2 Radar

1 Answer

Dear Sir/Madam. I have a Furuno 1942/Mark2 radar on which the heading marker is way off dead ahead (in fact showing about(in fact about 15° off to port). How can I adjust this? Is the adjustment via the display menus (I am unable to enter the 'installation setup' menu), or do I have to look at the scanner unit? Many thanks

Hi,
You have to reset the Furuno to factory settings this will solve your problem.
The reset procedure is clearly available in the manual.The master reset will reset all the settings.

scanner unit is not having any problem.
Since you say you are not able to enter menu.There is some corruption in the firmware.

If you are not able to pass through menu,then you should call Furuno service center they would give you some set of keys to be pressed for each model it differs so the system gets to old factory settings and now you can configure it correctly.

post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

Furuno MK 1942. The antenna does not spin. There is a message on the screen "HDG SIG MISSING". Though the magnetron is fairly new one. I can´t access the Instalation Setup at MENU > OTHER...


Either you have a bad cable, or the motor has given up. Sometimes it can be the mod. board but the bearing pulse generator is located on the motor itself. Also check to see if theres a switch on the back.

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

Furuno 1942 MK2 : The radar don't show any echos on the screen.


The gain truned up and filling the screen with dots tells me the M.I.C. is Ok. Since you array fills with water, there is a very very good chance that the wave guide has given up. A good tell tale sign is that there is white powder laying on rectangular aperture located in the center when you raise the lid on the chassis. A new Array will probably be needed and that will cost you anywhere from $800.00 to 1200.00 just for the part. The water is probably getting in from the array from a bad install as well. normally the chasiss does not leak unless you did something wrong.

Hi, I have a Radar Screen. Furuno 1942 MK2 . What Radar Dome can i plug this into. I have a Furuno 1720 Dome


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.

Furuno Radar Model 1833C


You have two things that orient the radar, on is called heading (or bearing) alignment. This is where you aim your radar so that a target comes up at 12 o'clock when dead ahead. Access this mode by pressing and holding menu duing power on, and go in to Installation Mode, radar setup, next page, align heading. I have posted a "tip" on this, search for VX2 radar alignment.
After this is done, North up is accomplished by having a magnetic input (fluxgate compass or autopilot). Calibration of this compass varies, but if it is accurate, then all should line up nicely.
