Icom ah-4 tuner not tuning

I have an icom 7200 radio and icom ah-4 tuner with radials. The icom service center checked out the tuner and it was ok. I reinstalled won't tune. I do hear the relays trying to tune. I'm on the hard right now...could that affect the ground not having the boat in the water?

Thanks in advance for any comments.

Check your antenna connections. Try tuning a higher frequency. I remember a boatyard in Turkey where I ran a ground wire to the cyclone fence and got great results.
