Furuno VX2 no GPS signal, no output on port monitor

Hi Everyone

My boat is currently Sydney based. My Furuno VX2 stooped tracking position recently. After a power off it appeared to be fine. A few days ago it stopped again and a re-power didn't resolve it.

I stupidly did a full reset and now it doesn't see the charts and still doesn't have GPS position which is the core issue.

My on board network is Furuno gp-32 GPS (working fine), Navnet FI3005 server (appears to be working fine), VX2 plotter, a couple of FI30 instruments showing boat speed and wind fine.

I have checked the settings I am familiar with and the Nav source is set to all. If i go into the data transfer I have tried to set to Navnet1-4 with no appreciable changes. If I select the port monitor, it shows nothing.

I have checked all the wiring and there is nothing obvious I can see. The GP-32 is showing position and tracking perfectly.

I have rung a few so called "furuno experts" to be told they can look at it, but will likely need to call support in Brisbane. My experience in the past has been, anyone who says they know and then wants to call support, doesn't actually know. So I don't want to waste a day of time and incur the expense for a guy to learn his way around.

Was hoping someone on the forum here may have had similar issues and hsa some idea on what to do.

Many Thanks
