Question about Raymarine C80 GPS Receiver
Two weeks ago - The E-80 display would come up and display the chart but would then reboot itself. This happend most of the morning, with each reboot the e-80 would stay up a little longer. By noon it stayed up running the rest of the day.
Yesterday - When powering up the E-80 the logo screen comes up but that is it. It then reboots itself over and over, never makes it past the logo screen.
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:
You will not be able to backup your personal data. We can reset the display though using this procedure:

Had the rebooting problem with my E120 - was extremely annyoing, since it would reboot out of the blue when underway - both screens independantly sometimes.
What solved it after many hours was simple: i had to turn off the "storm track" feature on my Sirius satellite weather on each screen and each page setting. Hate it.
Hope it solves your issues too.
