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.

    Thanks for the Info.The fuse is blowing on the main fuse board & not within the Plotter itself.All electronics are flush mounted.Thanks for the Info & we'll contact Raymarine directly.

SOURCE: No depth reading while on plane.

Depending on your transducer type, you may have a liquid filled type that simply needs refilling. If this is the case check for leaks and get it redone. If not it could be transducer placement or cavitation under the hull.

Is it posible to conect garmin 420s gpsmap to st40 deth transducer


No. St series from Raymarine are made for digital depth only, not fish finding and do not talk nmea. The only way to get that Garmin of yours to see depth would be to go from an ST40 nmea out to that garmin nmea in. Or purchase a nmea 0183 smart sensor and hook it to the garmin.

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.

My Raymarine ST6001+ says no signal. All other instuments are getting good GPS signal. I have have changed compass but nothing changed. I have a Course Computer 400 as the main autopilot controller. Can...


if the ST 6001 shows "no data" and alarms, the course computer is most likely bad. Control head failure is very uncommon, hower you should look at the brain box (T400) and move the control head to the other seatalk terminal (there are two) you may have just one failed SeaTalk port and can use it as is, otherwise, Raymarine will still fix (this week) 847-746-0100

Wiring of seatalk instruments


OK, you are confused. Seatalk is a bus system, using 3 wires , (power +, power-, and Data.) red, bare and yellow repectively. So Red and Bare are 12V and ground. Since the 125 shows a green light, it is getting power and outputting data. but is it seatalk?? to make a 125 Seatalk, you must hook red and green together to 12 V, so check that first. if green is grounded or not connected, that is the problem (or one of them)
Next divide system to its' simplest terms, so hook the GPS straight to the display ST60, and see if it works red to rd, yell to yell and bare to bare (sometimes black) One by one hook the others into the chain until they all work or failed device takes down Seatalk network. If you are missing 12V on a seatalk leg, check 5A fuse in course computer. If you have a pilot, you have a course computer, unless it is ST4000 wheel pilot, and then the brain is the display (course computer is built in to ST4000 display)

Sea talk failure


Remove all wiring from 4000 head, hook up only 12V, if seatalk fail continues, it is the head. if seatalk fail goes away, hook in instruments one by one until the bad head is found. Seatalk is 12V red, Ground Screen(bare wire) and Data yellow (pulsing voltage). good luck 847-746-0100 John Barry

GPS antenna


If it is an RS 120 or an RS112 antenna you do not need to change it.These are both active antennas in other words they do all the gps computing in the unit itself. You need to look at the wire from the antenna. If it is a coax cable(2 wire) it will not work.If it is 3 or 4 wires it will work. If 3 wire (red ,silver yellow) just hook up color for color.If 4 wire you are going to have to figure out the wiring for it from the units wiring diagram.That could be a big enough pain that you might be inclined to change to the new antenna. If you wire the new RS125 antenna you must wire it to the seatalk buss. The seatalk wires are Red Silver and Yellow.The wire from the RS125 are red yellow silver green and brown.Wire as follow to your sea talk cable.Yellow to Yellow, red to red , silver to silver, green to red, brown to silver.
Hope this helps.

Raymarine Raychart 520 Interface to PC


you will need to hook up direct. Seatalk wont handle a waypoint download, but the chartplotter will accept the data directly into the NMEA in port. All other data, like wind depth and latlon are handled by seatalk
