Question about Raymarine E120 GPS Receiver

Open Question

I have a Raymarine E120 Multifunction Display slow loading chart.

When I boot it up it takes 20-40 minutes for the chart to display the graphics from the chip. I bought a new platinum navionics card, i've reinstalled the chip several times, and I even updated the software to 5.52. When it comes on it stays on, but when you're leaving at 4am for a canyon trip and the card graphics don't load... any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try a cross over network cable from the PC to the E-Series. Raymarine Made each one of their cables as a straight cable so you would need to buy the cross over coupler or network switch box to use it with another unit. It's nothing different from normal networking with the exception that they have removed wires 4,5,7 & 8 from the cable and it's a straight. Give that a try.

SOURCE: My Raymarine C80 CHart plotter won't load.

Check to see if this is a power issue by connecting to shore power and fully charging your batteries overnight with instruments off. While still connected to shore power, with batteries fully charged, turn on C80 navigation system. If the loading screen comes on and does not reset, then try holding down the button immediately to the right of the red power button for at least 3 seconds to see if the system re-boots.

SOURCE: Chart details not appearing after removal.

Same problem I had. After resetting unit and checking CF on another unit, Raymarine tech. said, the reader is not working. All pins seems to be OK on first look. I opened unit by removing several screws in front, gasket and the whole chassis from the case. Simple repositioning of pushed down pins from inside into the Compact Flash corrected contact problem of reader. Since then, I never removed CF. It seemed, after several reinsertions of CF, I pushed down two pins in CF slot.

SOURCE: I just bought a boat with a Raymarine C80 chart

Hi,

Your problem is the 4GB card. The Raymarine C-Series have a problem with their compatability tool and larger CF cards. You should use a card no bigger than 256mb.

The card probably worked in the store because the newer models accept larger cards.

Get an older card from ebay etc and copy your 4gb files onto it and try again. There is more info here: http://raymarine.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/raymarine.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=1042&p_created=1089743435&p_sid=Y9eWB6ek&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=1042&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9MjYsMjYmcF9wcm9kcz0zNiwzNTIsNDEmcF9jYXRzPTAmcF9wdj0zLjQxJnBfY3Y9JnBfc2VhcmNoX3R5cGU9YW5zd2Vycy5zZWFyY2hfbmwmcF9wYWdlPTEmcF9zZWFyY2hfdGV4dD1zaXplIGNhcmQ*&p_li=&p_topview=1

Raymarine E120, after 4h on display went dark in


blubaju, probably cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp backlight failure! if unit dosen't have electro-luminescent style backlighting. All LCD panels require WHITE light to see what is on the screen!!! Is same common problem that computer (pc) lcd monitors suffer from!!! I suspect that if your unit has CCFL's, that the SMPS power supply or CCFlamp INVERTER circuit has a problem common to ALL LCD monitors. I should think that any BIG TIME tv/monitor repair shop could examine the printed circuit boards and effect a repair for you! Just mention that you think it suffers from the BLACK SCREEN of DEATH syndrome!!! Also mention that to RAYMARINE!!! when you call them and **** them out!! 12fixlouie .5hr nrth/wst of Windy City Rate this on fixya if this msg helpful??

Try with new 5.23 Software. If you still have the problem send it to Raymarine.

Hello! Our Raymarine A65 will not start up. It starts a boot process but does not show "Raymarine A65" on the display and no chart is displayed as it usually does. Regards Odd


Probably a bad printed circuit board, just had to send mine in to have it repaired. When I hit the power button, I did hear a beep, but then nothing displayed. Mine was still under warrenty, so don't know the repair cost if yours is not.

Raymarine e-80 chart plotter keeps rebooting


If you are experiencing problems with your C70, C80, C120, E80 or E120 display resetting itself, or randomly turning itself off, there are 2 troubleshooting procedures that may resolve the issue:
1. Ensure that none of the buttons are stuck under the edge of the display's front fascia.
When the Multifunction Display is first installed, or any time after the front fascia has been removed, it is very easy to get the edge of one or more of the rubber buttons trapped under the edge of the plastic fascia. This is particularly prone to happening if the snaps that secure the fascia to the display are not fully engaged around both the outside perimeter of the fascia, and the insider edge surrounding the LCD display.

E-Series display with soft key trapped under fascia.
You can free the buttons from under the edge of the fascia by applying pressure to them with a fingertip, and rotating your fingertip in a circular motion. When the button is properly through the fascia it should sit centered within its hole, and you should feel a positive "click" of the internal switch when pressing and depressing each button. If trapped buttons were found, releasing them will return the display to normal operation.
2. Reset the display.
Your display may require a reset which will erase any stored waypoints, routes and tracks.
If your MFD's menus are accessible:

Backup your personal data CompactFlash memory card. Please see Answer #1145, Backing up waypoint, routes and tracks on C and E-Series for complete instructions.
Once your data is backed up you can reset the display using this procedure:
  1. If your MFD's menus are accessible, perform a "Settings and Data" reset from the System Setup menu. Press the MENU key, then scroll down to the "System Setup" option, and toggle the track pad right.
  2. Scroll down to the "Settings and Data Reset" option and toggle the track pad right.
  3. Under the word "Factory Reset?" press the softkey corresponding to YES. The display will restart momentarily.
  4. The display should reboot into normal operating mode.
If your MFD's menus are not accessible:
You will not be able to backup your personal data. We can reset the display though using this procedure:
  1. Press and hold down the first soft key (next to the power button.)
  2. Keep holding the soft key down while the display reboots. A "Factory Reset" countdown will be displayed. Keep holding the first soft key until the countdown is complete.
  3. The display should reboot into normal operating mode.
Once your display has returned to normal operation you should check its operating software version, and upgrade to the latest version (if applicable.) The latest update for your model is 3.31. It will be displayed on the message that appears during start up. This is an important update because changes were made to the WAAS satellites and your E80 will not recognise the satellites without this update. Click this link to download the update: Raymarine V3.31 update.
