Furuno 1621 radar won't power up

Spring install, go to power up, turn on power & get a vertical line in the center of the screen for about 1/2 second then nothing. It is getting full voltage to unit.
Does this tell you anything right off? Like display unit is shot? Connection to cable up mast seems to be a good fitting.
Hoping to nurse another year out of this unit.

Re: Furuno 1621 radar won't power up

Try disconnecting the multi pin connectors in the radome unit and then reconnecting them. Even though you don't see any corrosion it's possibly and bad connection. I've had this happen on two different Furuno sets.
