Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Raymarine autopilot my yacht was hit by lightning and most electronics had to be replaced. The boards were replaced in the following Raymarine devices a) RL80C pathfinder plotter b) ST7001 smartpilot c) 400 course computer The problem is that when instructed to goto a waypoint the smartpilot indicates the correct degree to turn, for example 10 degrees to port but the yacht turns to starboard first, realises the error and then overshoots to port before finally settling on the correct course. This problem occurs both on a port or starboard track. If I set the degrees to turn to port or starboard manually then everything works OK. But when trying to goto a waypoint the above problem always occurs. I have done all dockside and compass setups but it does not help.

Hi Alchik. Lightning hits can affect all and everything, Murphies Law says that until you have replaced all control electronics, the fault will continue to pester you. Is there any part of the system that has not yet been replaced? Because that is probably going to be the course you have to set for yourself. I loath acts of God when it comes to electronics.

Need a remote control for Accurian Sirius Radio

To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability.
Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the site Check this site too. Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops.
Type in the "brand name only" of your device, in the search box [at the top right] of the display window and the Search will start at once as you type in, and will show you all the related posts. It will make surf easy.

My Sirius ST4 has signal issue after 10 minutes

This sounds like a component heat failure inside the unit on a circuit board. If it isn't in warranty, to figure out if that's what's going on, you can open it up and spray various components, one at a time, with Freon (Cool Spray at the Electronics Stores). When you hit the temperature sensitive part, the unit will work again. Go slow, and you should be able to pinpoint the bad part. Now the difficult part will be getting a replacement part, and if you're warranty's still good, better to let them fix it. I read where they're discontinued, so parts may be hard to get, and you might check Ebay for a replacement. Wish I had better news.

I just purchased an Airwave AT-1000 headset model and I cannot even get it turned on.

If you have followed the instructions explicitly - the unit could be faulty..
I would suggest bringing it back for an exchange of another one.. Don't wait too long - return time policies are short on electronics..

Good luck !

Unit will not power up

I am afraid the entire circuit board is screwed this happens because you have shorted the device by interchanging the + and - terminals. You will need to replace it.. It has happened once with me too..

Sounds to me like the display went bad on you. I'm not too sure your those though.

Delphi SKYFi2 won't work

I just had my dial pop out and pushed it back in, with limited use again. You may have cracked the circuit board. If so, I would buy another SkyFi2 from eBay, etc, so you can reuse all your accessories. IMO, the SkyFi2 is the BEST XM radio ever built in terms of features (until it hits concrete).

Clarion Calypso display dim

I have this exact same problem and I have solved it by the following method. Open the unit (2 screws), remove the silver box (3 screws and gold pin connectors), and remove the circuit board (2 screws). You will see the screen is connected to the circuit board by a ribbon cable and two poles with metal connectors that actually go through the circuit board. One of the poles moved freely in and out of the circuit board on my unit, the other was still fixed in place and could not be removed easily. I found that when this pole was fully connected, the backlight functioned and did not when the connection was broken. I soldered the pole in place which solved the problem (maintained the connection).
