My JRC radar did that . I was quoted $650 for repair. Bought a new radar. Definitely not from the people who gave me the quote ( Victoria Marine electric)

Re: JRC 1000 Radar won't power on??

Keep in mind..
A voltmeter is not always the best tool, troubleshooting 12v systems..
They are sometimes too sensitive for the task..
I have been fooled more than once, by a digital voltmeter..
It will sometimes read 12-13 volt, but there will not be enough amp's to light a 5W light bulb at the socket...
Most Car electricians, uses the oldschool circuit tester with a built in bulb..
For circuit testing i mean..
It is a little different, when testing circuitboards..

I always have one of these lying around... : PICO WIRING 0690PT - Pico Circuit Testers - Overview -

Just my thoughts tho...

I have got one.
When first powered up, it takes about 90 seconds before the display will show the sweep.
There is a count-down in the centre of the screen.
I cannot remember if it beeps when I first power up. I suspect it does.

Check the power supply. Make sure you are feeding enough volts. Start your engine to improve the voltage supply, if necessary.

Same here, contacted JRC in Seattle and a new board is $650.00 , so I was told if you really love your jrc 1000?

boatseeker North-easter and anyone else with JRC Radar 1000 problems

I am having the same problem on a unit I salvaged from an abandoned boat. I contacted JRC who told me the main board needs replacing. If you repaired it what action was needed?

Faster There is a (3 minute?) warmup time.. sometmes for some reason the contrast gets adjusted.. have you tried to "increase" the contrast during the warmup time? You should see the countdown timer for warm up...

QuickMick when you checked the 'in line' one you mean the 5a fuse that resides in the power cable?

AdmiralDan I'm having the exact same problem with my JRC 1000. Has anyone solved this problem or do these display units just die?

Northeaster Cam - Thanks for the contact info. I'll give them a call!

camaraderie North...well, other than checking the contacts for the plug on your display unit it looks like what you have is in technical terms "a dead unit". There are no user accesible service items so I'd suggest you send the puppy off to JRC or call their tech line:
SERVICE PHONE: 206-654-5644

SERVICE FAX: 206-654-7030
Service Technicians

Good luck!
