problems with Raymarine ST2000

Hello everybody.

Last week I started to have problems with my ST 2000 autopilot.
It can't mantain the boat on course with autopilot engaged.
Once you press the autopilot key, the astern start to go to starboard until the alarm start to ring. Once you checked the autopilot compass is +40 degrees from the course where the autopilot were fixed.

If I press the standby key, and engage again the autopilot. It repeats the problem, 40 more to starboard and the boat completely out of course.

It's happen in flat water, only 6 knts TWS, motoring at 4 knts.

It happen in a few seconds, just after fix the course and engage the autopilot. And always to starboard.

Does anybody have this problem?
any clue about this?

Was sailing parallel to a cliff and suddenly found myself heading straight for it. A new fluxgate compass solved the problem.

Had a similar problem years ago, fortunately no cliffs 😊

Mine was a bad fluxgate compass as well.
