Question about Raymarine C80 GPS Receiver

DISPLAY IS LOSING POLARIZED FILM

I recently purchased a used c80 system and I noticed that the display appears to be losing the polarized film that allows you to see easily during direct sunlight viewing. Is there any easy fixes to this besides sending the unit back to raymarine and paying there $599 flat rate repair fee. Does anyone have a display unit only for sale?

You could use "Screensavers" like the ones that you use on PDA or mobile phones, very easy to fit. There are lots of different sizes on the market. They have an effect similar to polarizing coverings. another workaround would be to source and fit a sunscreen around the top and sides. You could get the film that is its self polerized but this is expensive and can be tricky to fit.

LCD coating needs to be replace or LCD REPLACED


Since you have little to loose you can attempt to remove the protective coating and not attempt to replace it with a substitute material. It's not required to operate but is intended to enhance viewing in certain light conditions. Might try a window cleaner with ammonia and a little "elbow grease". Remember though, your end result could be worse than what you have now if you're unable to completely remove the film or damage the JCD panel in the process.

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.

A thin blue line has appeared on the display from top to bottom on the right side app. 1 inch from the right margin. It appears on all pages.


This is an indication that the lcd is bad. something may have been dropped on the unit or if the front was hit by something, this can cause a bad spot on the lcd.

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 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.
