Question about Raymarine C80 GPS Receiver

C120 Chartplotter Auto-PowerOFF

C120 intermittenly shuts down during operation. Raymarine advised to update to 4.29, perform factory re-boot after saving waypoints etc to CF chip. ALL of these were done, same results...auto shutdown or reboot.
Had installed Sirius Satellite Weather. Raymarine advised Sirius had an issue that was being worked on, and to disconnect the SR50 receiver. Sirius had no knowledge of a problem. When the Sirius was disconnected, the C120 started fine and within two minutes shut down automatically.
A friend reported several others had reported the same problem.

I smell a rat and need a solution. Any help would be appreciated.

    I have same problem with a C80. Raymarine admits a problem but says it is with Sirius Weather. I doubt it! I recently upgrade software version 4.25 to v4.26 when the problem appeared. THe local Raymarine dealer reverted my C80 back to version 4.25 and performed a factory reset. All appears fine now. The tech also had other customers with the same problem and recerted all C series to v4.25.

    I have seen this issue in the field and it was corrected by the software upgrade. What other items are connected to the C120?

Before you turn on your C 80 or C120
press the first grey keypad near to the powerbottom and than the powerbutton together until you get factory reset.
So you will solve the problem.
Software 4.29 is OK

Either it's not getting enough power on the bus or there may be a problem with the unit or something hooked to it. Remove everything but power and leave the unit on. If it powers off by itself then check your voltage, if voltage ok and the leads are not corroded, send it in. If it does not power off hook things up one by one. Leave it on each time. I've seen GPS's not provided with additional power on the seatalk do this. Even though the E-series outputs power on seatalk they made a revision in this concept and now what you to power the gps externally. That may be the only problem you're having or your seatlk bus is internally breaking down.

Fuses blowing on raymarine e series 125 chartplotter


It sounds like the fault is within the plotter itself. There should be any component, which shorts with main power supply, causes the blow of fuse to overload. I do advice you not to try to repair it by yourself, and contact the authorized service center.

Hi I have a raymarine c120,dose the hiden electronic compass have a reset button,when following a track on screen im am traveling sideways or a stern,,,do I need a new one or reset,??


Do you have the display configured for "heading up"? If it's "north up" then the map orientation will be fixed and your heading will change. Look at the softkeys under "presentation". The C120 doesn't have a hidden electronic compass; it uses the heading from the GPS (which will wander around when you are stopped). If you have a Raymarine autopilot it will provide compass heading to the C120.

Hello, I have just bought my Bavaria 36 in the netherlands. We have sailed her to Sweden a few days ago. The boat is equipped with a chartplotter RayMarine RC 435. During our trip we noticed the folowing:...


One thing you might check is for any corrosion in the 12VDC power cable at any point on the way to the unit. If the wires are somewhat corroded they will heat up as the unit draws power and the inherent voltage drop a from heated wires may lower the available voltage to the unit so it shuts down.

I can't access dsm reset through fishfinder menu, it keeps saying no data source and I can't scroll down!


Check that there is power available at the DSM. Then verify that the DSM connector cable is correctly connected between the DSM and the C120. Finally, be sure that you have the most recent software version installed ( V 4.29). If all of that fails to bring back the DSM, try a factory reset. You accomplish this by holding down the first softkey while powering up the display. Hold the softkey until the reset countdown ends and the display begins to reboot. Be aware that a factory reset will delete any waypoints, routes, etc. so be sure to back upp anything important.

Raymarine looses GPS fix


A software upgrade will do a world of good for the unit, however it may not take care of your GPS fix issue. Usually when you have satellites showing and no fix, that indicates a bad antenna. Check the LED indicator on the antenna, it should be green. The RS125 has a connector plug on the antenna end so it is nice and easy to buy a new one and give it a try. The software is free and a good start.....and yes you need to do a reset after the upgrade by holding the first soft key as you power on the unit. It will give you a factory reset countdown. Simply hold that soft key until it is done and begins the reboot.

Raymarine A65 Shuts off Whenever it is in the mood


My A65 was constantly shutting itself off. I did the reset and the unit is working just like it should now and I have had no more problems.

Go to Setup, System Setup, then Settings Reset and press Enter. This returns all settings back to their original factory values. It should not reset your waypoints or route lists. Raymarine recommends you backup your waypoints on a separate Compact-Flash card but I didn't do that as I wrote down my all my coordinates. Hey I'm a fisherman all I care about are my fishing spots.

I'm not sure what setting it was that I changed that caused the adverse affect of the unit shutting itself off but resetting the unit did the trick. I was more careful about adjusting the display settings to my liking by doing them one at a time and waiting to see if the problem returned. It has not so far, knock on wood, and the unit is working the flawlessly now.

RAYMARINE A65 COMPLETE FAILURE


Was the engine running when it shut off? How was the voltage at the time it failed? The A65 will shut down if the voltage drops below 11.2 volts.

Another common cause would be corrosion on the plug where it plugs into the back of the display, or the terminal connectors that attach it to the boat's power supply.

It could also be a bad crimp on the terminal connectors. Make sure connectors are the right size for the wire and that they are marine grade, such as Ancor brand connectors. I also recommend heat shrink style connectors,

I have not heard of any software issues for that model so I am betting it's a wiring issue. However, there is an update available from Raymarine. There were changes made to the WAAS satellites and the update helps it recognize the new satellites. You can download it for free from Raymarine. Copy it onto a blank CF card and plug it into the card slot on your GPS. When you turn the unit on it will prompt you on how to proceed with the update. It will fix any known software gliches at the same time.

I hope this answer helps. Please reply if you have any questions about my response.
