Default Simrad radar error

I have a simrad radar 4g and Im getting an error when I start to transmit. Error says zero bearing sensor fault. I have checked all connections, except for opening up the dome, and voltages and connections seems fine. Any Ideas? I was in some bad weather when it stopped transmitting.

Same happened to mine. Did you ever get a solution?

Yes I opened up the dome and the belt had broke. I looked on YouTube and found a video showing how to melt both ends and repair the belt and it works fine now. If the belt is old then you will need to replace it with a new one.

Just had the same problem with a 5 year old 4G radar. Waiting for the new belt from eBay now. But good excuse to clean up and wax the radome.

Had the belt break as well and soon after the Ethernet cable went bad.
