Question about Raymarine E120 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Master vs. repeater confusion

I have an E120 screen at the helm of my sailboat and an E80 screen at the nav station. The E80 unit has the nav chip in it. I always turn on the E80 unit first and it has been set up as the master. But when I turn on the E120 display at the helm it doesn't seem to know if it is the master or repeater and offers to be reset as the master (but not as the repeater). If I press the softkey to make the E120 the master it will sometimes then offer me the option to be the repeater, but not always. If I use the two units every day, they rarely have this problem, but if I go a week they always have this problem. If I shut the E120 down and then restart it, I can sometimes get the E120 to agree it is the repeater, Other times I must shut down both units over and over.

    The problem is that the units do not seem to remember how they were last set as master/repeater.

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.

Replace the chip, is a chip cartridge problem.

if not work try this:

31 Defective toner cartridge or missing cartridge
1. Verify that the toner cartridge and PC kit are correctly installed.
2.Wait 10-20 seconds for the printer to verify the units.
3. Replace the toner cartridge or PC kit if necessary.

When I turn it on it keeps flashing a white screen..


You may have a processor problem, but with the unit off press and hold the button next to the power button. Turn the unit on while continuing to press the softkey. This will perform a master reset. If this doesn't work, the processor has failed and the unit will need to be sent to Raymarine for a new processor.

Raymarine "DSM connection lost"


Murray,

Has the DSM and the E120 software been upgraded to the latest software: 4.12 for the DSM and 5.52 for the E120?

Try this first. You can download the software off Raymarine.com and burn each to a separate compact flash card.

I have seen many problems like you are experiencing solved with this simple change.

If this doesn't solve the problem, the DSM will have to go back to Raymarine for repair.

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.

Our e120 has no boat recognition. We cannot make it find our boat in order to use it.


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.

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
