Problems with 4kw analog radar

My radar in combination with a RL80C display is giving me some headache lately. I' ve been getting the terrible message " scanner not responding " .
So first of all I would like to perform a display resistance test the way Raymarine describes.
Meaning measuring the pins of the radar connector going into the display to see if the fault is not in the unit itself
Question is , should that be done with a display that is powered up , switched on that is ?

Re: Problems with 4kw analog radar

Resistance tests (Ohmmeter) are ALWAYS performed with power OFF.
