Default Furuno DRS4D radar problem

I have the NXT radar interfaced with TZtouch2 displays. The system was installed just a couple months ago. It had worked fine until now. Friday when going down the river my radar just stopped working. When I press the TX soft button I get a Azimuth and Heading line alarm and the radar will not turn up, meaning I do not hearing it rotating. There's an error code on one of my displays it is RD003213. Any ideas? Had Furuno equipment all my life, never had an issue.

Post on the Furuno Forums or call their customer service.

Given that you are getting a heading line alarm make me believe you are running in overlay mode and somehow you are not getting heading info... Heading info is required for overlay.

Did you try to transmit without overlaying the chart? Did you check your connections?

Thanks, i did check the fuse but did not want to undo the installers wiring. I am not running in overlay mode. The radar will no spin up. I may have a look again later today. A bit of a scramble cause I need to run offshore Tuesday but obviously can not without radar.

Just an FYI.. My antennae was bad and needed replaced. Probably a bad motor per tech support. Must have been a fluke. It was replaced and working well now.
