Sorry, can't help you with advice other than to say you might find a local electronics shop that can troubleshoot and fix. If you must have that same size unit to fit, you may find yourself just paying them double, unfortunately.

Good Luck.

Hi Yoda
Furuno are a pain in the but
I have now found out that a lot of longliners use this unit for the deck display when they are hauling in lines and the skipper is on the deck as well they use them for their Buoy identificatio n using s system like AIS but not on that frequency so lots of people have a need, Just a ploy to dump new stock on the market
