Hi! You will need to reset the unit to work normally. Try this, remove the battery and press/turn the power button for 10secs. while the battery is removed. Put in the battery and turn the unit on and see how it goes. This should reset the system and resolve the problem. Hope this helps and have a good one!
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.
Do you have fix on the GPS? Have you selected "find boat" and not "cursor" (bottom left button under the screen)? If you'r still stuck try a master reset (factory reset) by going into the menu and select system setup - factory reset.
The master/repeater selection is for the purpose of determining which display is in control of the waypoint and route database.
Turn on both units and let them boot up. Do not answer the master/repeater question until both are on. Then press "Set as master" on the preferred one.
The units remember individually if they were set as a master or repeater the last time they were on. If they are powering up to find themselves in a different configuration than they were previously in, that will prompt the whole master/repeater thing to happen.
Had same problem on trip down the pacific west coast.
Best solution is to replace your GPS antenna to the 175 ( It is a problem on the 120)and upgrade the software. If this is not feasible, shutting the unit down for about 10 to 15 mins. sometimes dumps the GPS data overload. and allows FIX re-acquisition.
