Hello dvdcoote. You have lost your magnatron. Your HiVoltage connection or the magnatron has gone bad. Disconnect the power to the unit. Disassemble housing and remove the rotor or disconnect the power to the rotor motor. Check for a burn on the insulation of high voltage wiring. This could be the clicking noise. In this case use high voltage gloves and repair the connection or replace the magnatron assembly. Please be careful of HIGH voltage. Note; hd sig miss could be decoded stating High Defined Signal Missing.

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.

I have a rather old Whistler 3300 radar detector with the antannae unit in front of the radiator and the suction cup unit on the front windshield for rear detection. I've had it forever and love it. ...


Here are the steps from Whistler's FAQ page on their website:

When the display shows an "R1" type error on the display or the unit clicks (flashing either the Green power LED or the Yellow city LED), it means that the link between the inside and outside unit has failed. Generally this is caused by the receiver's (outside unit) cable becoming unplugged from behind the console (inside unit).
NOTE: The receiver cable is the straight one plugged into the "Radar 1" jack. The laser receiver (LRM-5) cable is angled and plugged into the "Laser" jack. This error will also occur if these two cables are reversed.

Follow the below steps to correct R1/Clicking error message:
  • Make sure the correct cable is connected to the correct jack and that it is fully engaged.
    Make sure there is sufficient slack in the cables to prevent them from "walking out" of the jacks.
  • Follow the Factory Reset procedure.
  • If the above suggestions does not cure the problem, email our Customer Service dept for more information.
Follow the below steps to correct R2/Clicking (Not available on Pro-3450) with "R" Yellow LED flashing error message:
  • Make sure the correct cable is connected to the correct jack and that it is fully engaged.
    Make sure there is sufficient slack in the cables to prevent them from "walking out" of the jacks.
  • If the rear antenna was not installed, go to the Factory Reset procedure. If a rear antenna was installed, continue to the next step.
  • If the rear antenna is installed, it must be programmed.

    For models 2270 and 2290
    1. Remove power from unit
    2. Press and hold the Dark button
    3. While holding the dark button, apply power to unit and hold the Dark button for 5 seconds. The "R"LED and either the Green (highway) or Yellow (City) will illuminate.

    For model 3300 and 3400
    1. Unit will display "R2 ON ?"
    2. Press the Dark button for Yes or City for No.
  • To temporarily cancel the "R2"error message on a 3300 or 3400 model, press and hold either the Dark/City/Quiet button.
  • Follow the Factory Reset procedure and see if the "R2" error goes away. If so, go to next step.
  • If the above suggestions does not cure the problem, email our Customer Service dept for more information.

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

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.

I've had the same problem. before replacing the antenna, try to reset the antenna by removing power to the Raystar 120. Disconnect power by either turning off all batteries or disconnecting the red wire from the antenna at the point where it enters the junction box for the chartplotter. This action effectively removes all memory from the antenna and resets it to factory settings. There is a lithianium battery in GPS antenna that holds memory data in the antenna. Disconnecting the power to the antenna for a few seconds clears the memory.

This is exactly what I did and when I turned the chartplotter back on, my Raystar 120 immediately began working again.
