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 help?

    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.

I got a raytheon sl70 pathfinder gps that wont get a fixed signal the antenna is wired right but there dosent seen to be power comeing out of the cord that leads to the antenna. what should i do ????? i...


If you're using a raystar 125 antenna, you will have to power the red wire + and the shield wire - separately. Sl70's don't provide power over seatalk. Also make sure your green and brown wires are properly connected. If it's a 120 just power the red and sheild(black) and leave off the all except the yellow that's your data. If you still have nothing may probably have a problem in the antenna itself.

Connect Ratheon RL 70 to Raymarine E80


The two devices can share Nav data only. No radar, Sonar or Chart will be shared.
Hook the RL70 and the E80 together on SeaTalk and all data will be shared both ways. Alternatively, it could be done with NMEA 0183, which is directional, or you could also translate the RL70 data to NMEA 2000 and share it that way. As long as you have all Raymarine equipment, you are home free using a three wire Seatalk connection, with only two hooked up, Yellow and Bare, color to color.
Remember, this will share Nav Data only.

3.
try the plotter on an nother boat with an working system than you will know if its a problem with the antena or Plotter

Raymarine e series malfunction


I have found that many of the issues you are experiencing are a result of operator error (no offense). For the system you have described, you will definitely have a network switch which interfaces everything. Is it possible that the network switch is powered from a source that you dont always turn on? In other words, if the system has multiple breakers and the network sw is tied to one of them, using only one display for example may leave the switch without power and give the error messages you described. Bottom line......BE SURE that the entire system is powered on. Another possible cause is master vs slave. One of the two displays is the master. If you power the system up in the wrong order or without the network switch in the loop, the slave unit will automatically ask you to set it as the master. NEVER do this. Changing the master will result in data loss as you described. Finally, if all of this checks out, verify the software in your displays (the version will appear in the bottom right during start up). Your software should be at least V4.29 but there is a newer version available so if you need to upgrade make sure you get the most recent. Good luck

Scanner self test result...is display comms/fail /raymarine c80 18" dome


Chances are that your scanner cable may be bad. Check inside the dome and make sure that the little wires going into the black connector from the radar cable are seated correctly and all the way in. This can cause tons of problems. Also check to make sure that your pins in the back of you unit are not corroded or broken off.

Raymarine G series radar


Your problem is likely noise from the motor. Modern diesels use high speed networks, so it could be interference. Next likelihood would be a software issue. Is the diesel set up to display info on the G display?
Solution could be re routing cables, grounding or un grounding devices. First step is to send your processor to Raymarine, sorry, necessary step to eliminate hardware failure. This is a tough symptom, so do the easy stuff first.

Raymarine 41xx - Message "bearing pulse error"


More than likely your motor is going bad. Inside the motor is your bearing pulse generator. Replace the motor and you should be ok.

Send unit back to Raymarine. Two year warranty. I just talked to the factory about a communication error between the E series and the radar. Radar just stopped communication between radome and E unit.

C120


You might try downloading the latest C-Series update from Raymarine's site. It is version 4.26. You can get it on ther site here:

http://raymarine.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/raymarine.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=1037

Even if it is identical to the software in there now, the act of actually reflashing the software may get you up and running.
