Question about Raymarine E120 GPS Receiver
My less than one year old marine GPS unit has stopped reading the chart card. It also wont write to any cards, I get a failed error message when attempting to write waypoints.
To get back up and running you are going to have to reset the unit. This is from the handbook:
Note: Take care - factory reset clears allWaypoint and Route databases.
➤ To perform a factory reset:
1. Power off the unit.
2. Press and hold CLEARwhilst powering up until <Erase backup procedure>
3. Either press CLEAR to abort Factory Reset and resume normal
Power-Up or press ENTER to continue Factory Reset.
4. Press ENTER again; the unit restarts as for a first time PowerUpwith
all values reset to their original factory settings
When you hit port and have an internet connection, make sure you are running the latest software version, currently listed online as version 1.09. You can download it here:

I've had the same problem. before replacing the antenna, try to reset the antenna by removing power to the Raystar 120. Disconnect power by either turning off all batteries or disconnecting the red wire from the antenna at the point where it enters the junction box for the chartplotter. This action effectively removes all memory from the antenna and resets it to factory settings. There is a lithianium battery in GPS antenna that holds memory data in the antenna. Disconnecting the power to the antenna for a few seconds clears the memory.
This is exactly what I did and when I turned the chartplotter back on, my Raystar 120 immediately began working again.

I think you have a C- Map card (black colour)clean the contacts with a contactcleaner if it not works try the card somewhere else
The C-Map card have problems that they work for a while and than stops inside the card a some memorychips and they losing contact

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

SOURCE: I removed the Navionics card
Here is a link to the main RAYMARINE support page for that model:
If there is no physical damage to the card or the card reader on the unit, then you can always try a master reset procedure and see if that will clear your problem.
To master reset a C120, have the unit off, press the first soft key next to the power button and hold it. Press power button (while keeping the soft key pressed). You will get a message stating that it will reset, followed by a countdown (keep pressing on the soft key). Once beeping is done, release the soft key.
Please comment back here to this page if you have any details to add, have any questions, have difficulty accessing the links, or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.
I hope that was helpful to you, good luck.
