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.

How to fix "BRG SIG MISSING" error on an old FE-1505 MARK-2. ?


Make sure the antenna/scanner is turning in tx mode. The bearing signal is generated inside the scanner drive motor. This problem usually requires replacing the motor.

Brg sig missing


That usually means the antenna is not rotating. Verify that first then check for physical obstructions. More than likely it's a defective motor assembly.

Do not get any images on the radar screen


depending on which radar it is, it may be the video coax inside the radar cable. Otherwise possibly your magnetron or mic. Try calling mid-shore electronics @ 410-228-7335 they may be able to assist you.

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.

Error SB SIG MISS on FURUNO CRT radar?


Either your reed switch is bad or your antenna is not rotating. You may hear the motor spinning but that does not mean the array is. If the array is not spinning make sure the belt did not come off the motor. Start there.
