Default No PM Message in Furuno 1940 Radar

The Radar antena in my Furuno Radar model 1940 does not rotate when I start up the system. I am getting a ¨NO PM¨ message in the upper left part of the display. Anyone knows what can it be?

Normally if the antenna is not turning, you will get an error similar to the message "NO HEADING PULSE" or "NO BEARING PULSE"

if the antenna is not rotating, the display will show an error on the screen

you should troubleshoot the antenna first, checking power, interconnections, motor, etc to see why it is not rotating

Thanks I made a mistake in the original post, the message I am getting is ¨NO BP¨ which I deduct from your recommendation is NO BEARING PULSE. I will check the connections in the antenna. Thanks a lot.!!
