Raymarine radar won't power up

My C series (120) display shows "no data source" on the radar display.  I have a 48 inch Raymarine open array scanner. It apparently is not receiving the signal from the scanner, and the scanner won't turn on.

    is there a way to check the scanner to see if there's a voltage problem (i.e. not getting enough voltage) or...are there any fuses or circuit breakers that should be checked?  I plan to check the wire voltage with a voltmeter as suggested by the experts.  One other thing, I had my batteries replaced just before this happened, so could this have caused  a problem with the Raymarine scanner (or with the C series display).  I'm hoping that I don't have to buy a new scanner - they ain't cheep!

    Any other "experts" have any suggestions - why my raymarine radar scanner doesn't work.  "no data" on the screen.

Well if you have a warenty bring it back to the store
if you dont you need a voltage tester and opening the scaner up
when you do thay find the first metal there is from the input voltage
put the probes on that it should be the voltage it says on the wire

Check the wiring to the scanner, eventually test with a multimeter the volt at the scanner, so to find out if the scanner is getting power.

If wires testing reads ok, then probably you have a faulty scanner, and you need to replace it.

    If the scanner does not turn on at all, as you sayed, then the scanner it is either faulty, or is not recieiving power because of a broken contact.

    If you do not start testing if the scanner gets powered you cannot know what the problem is.

    Sometimes to fix problems on electronics you need to use a multimeter and test if parts are faulty, this does not look like a setting problem.

    I know, they are not cheap, and replacements for some model are difficult to find.

    I do not think the batteries can blow the scanner, I do not think the scanner is fused either, I opened some radar box, and they where not fused.
    Check if water had got into the circuits.

    I will see if I find a diagram or more documentation for this circuits.

Even after double checks on settings Iam still getting weak echos on Raymarine E120 radar. On higher ranges picture is non existant. Where could my problem be?


How old is the radar antenna? When the echos are weak that is a sign of a failing or weak magnetron. Have you gone into the system diagnostics page to read what the signal strength of the radar is?

I want to mirror my Raymarine C80 on to a LCD monitor in Saloon, How can I do this?


You are unable to make that happen. The C80 displays are not able to be "cloned" or "mirrored". Sorry, but you would have to upgrade to the new C-Wide series or E-Wide series to complete the task.

I would recommend upgrading the E80 and the DSM to the newest software levels:

E80 - 5.52
DSM - 4.12.

You can download the software off raymarine.com and load them onto different compact flash cards. Both softwares are upgraded through the E80 display.

Need power supply cable raytheon v850


Anything Raytheon is going to be tough now since it is no longer supported by Raymarine. You may still be best to start by calling Raymarine's tech dept to see what they say. If no luck, your next best try is probably EbaY.

Antenna not rotating


It sounds like voltage loss could be your issue. You need to find the "Y" cable under the dashboard and measure the voltage at the point where it connects to the main 12V supply. Keep the meter on and then spin up the radar. If there is a fuse (there should be) make sure you are measuring on the radar side of the fuse. If the voltage drops off as the radar slows, you have found your problem. If the voltage stays constant and the connections are sound at the terminations in the radar pedestal, I would recommend you send the pedestal in to Raymarine.

Raymarine st8002 wired to furuno


The st8002 is not compatble with rs232 data. You need to supply it with nmea 0183 data. You will need to wire it to the "NMEA port IN" on the pilot to NMEA out on your Furuno and turn on the mnea sentances "out" on your Furuno. You will need to turn on at least the following sentances GGA GLL RMB RMC.Hope that helps.
