Default antenna not rotating on Raymarine SL72 radar system

I ran my boat in rough seas this weekend and got an "antenna not rotating" error message. I have an Raymarine SL72 model. Any one seen this before or know what to do about it?

If your unit goes thru the warm-up countdown and goes into stand-by and you are still recieving that message. Then I would call Raymarine Tech Support.

Or you could remove the top and inspect the rubber drive belt, and make sure the motor will spin the antenna/waveguide or whatever it's called.

Hookman's got it right, it's called the Megatron. You power wire to it could also be carroded too. I assume it was working beforehand, though. Rough water should have no affect. Good Luck.

Welcome to the world of Raymarine. Sorry for your troubles but unfortunately you can expect more of this.
