Hi there,
This could be caused by a bad cable.
Try replacing the ethernet cable between the 3G unit and the HDS unit.
Also try with the autopilot and/or depth finder turned on. Sometimes a combination of these turned on or off can help get the radar working.
If the above does not work, then you may have a bad 3G unit - get it swapped for another one and try again.
