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

I am not picking up objects on my screen until I am right on them. Tried tilting the radar dome down foward to see if this would work to no avail. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.


depending on the type of boat you currently have it mounted on, you may be out of range. Also your radar may need tuning and make sure your rain and seaclutter is not too high. Make sure the rain clutter is off. If the radar is mounted on a sailboat and you're having this problem, it's most likely the height unless it worked before in which case it could either be the display or the radar components. Magnetrons which run the radar also have a life.

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 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.

The top half of the dome blew off while towing boat. Any way to replace the top half with a used or new piece? Don't need to replace the whole dome.


As long as no damage was done to the enclosure from the lid blowing off, there is no reason that you can't simply put a dome on it. Try contacting furuno direct to see if the part is available. Make sure you know exactly what model radar you have before you call.
