Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
If the cord to the radar transponder was loose for several months, you will need to clean the jack at the end before the signal will be sure to get through.
Turn the E120 Off. Unplug the jack/cable/connector to the radar transponder. With a clean dry brush, brush off the plug at the end of the cable, and the jack it goes into. Then wipe both down with a clean dry rag cloth, until the metal is quite shiny, and re-connect firmly. Turn the E120 On again, try it out after enough pause time for the radar transponder to 'spin up' if it needs to, or heat up, etc.
Let me know how that goes... and also, did the E120 get used with a different radar transponder, on the other boat? in case the above does not help with the problem.
