B&G Hornet 4/Hecta

I have a B&G Hornet 4 and Hecta system in my sailboat. It doesn't even start and I was told by the rigger that the sensors in the mast were bad. I don't know where to start troubleshooting this sytem so if anyone outthere has one of this systems please help me out. I want to know where to buy old parts, troubleshoot etc.

I assume you mean that it doesn't even power up? Remove the back cover and check for 12v between pins 9 and 10. If you have power there, then you need to loosen the six screws from the back of the unit and pull the front cover off. Check the fuse (1 amp 5x20mm) located at the top just to the left of center. When replacing the front cover, make sure to line up the pins of the keyboard with the socket on the left of the PCB.
