You might try downloading the latest C-Series update from Raymarine's site. It is version 4.26. You can get it on ther site here:

Even if it is identical to the software in there now, the act of actually reflashing the software may get you up and running.

Thanks for visiting FixYa.

Although I'm not familiar with Raymarine GPS units specifically, I've had success with others. There should be a reset button on the device (usually found on the bottom or side) it will just be a small hole just large enough to place a paper clip in. If you can find it, insert a paper clip - gently press it in - and while depressed, turn the power off and back on (while still depressing the reset button with the paper clip.)

This should perform a soft reboot where you don't loose any information programmed in the unit.

If this doesn't work, contact:

Their telephone support center is open Monday through Friday, 8:15 AM to 5:30 PM Eastern time.

In Speedometer 6y5-83570-s6 there are two black wires which is ground and which goes to fuel tank?

My Raymarine E80 depth display kept freezing up (display then says "DSM connection lost"). Of course, this seems to happen more often when entering a tight shallow anchorage in Alaska's inside passage. Raymarine tech support recommended that I update the display software and then update the DSM300 sounder software. I did this to no avail. Then Raymarine told me to install a dashboard mounted toggle switch inline with the positive power input of the DSM300 module so I could do hard re-sets (turning off the system power or powering down the displays does not reset the sounder module). This I did. Now when entering a tight anchorage, the display still freezes, but at least I can do a hard re-set with the new toggle switch and have the unit back up in about 40 seconds (a life time in a tight channel with the current running, etc.). Now, Raymarine says that if I send in the DSM module to them, they will replace it with their new circuit boards that solve this chronic problem that they have known about for a long time (hello, this is a significant safety issue - why no recall?).
Don't mess with this - send your DSM300 in to Raymarine!

How do you reset a Magellan 1700 GPS?

FAQ on your unit says this.

Depending on the power switch your unit was designed with follow the instructions below:

Slide Switch If your unit has a Slide power switch then slide and hold the power switch in the off position for more than 8 seconds.

Push Down Power Button If your unit has a Push Down Power Button for a Reset pin hole on the bottom or on either side of the unit. Take a pin or an end of a paperclip and insert it into the hole and push in until you feel it pop slightly, hold it for 10 seconds. Your unit will reset itself.

Reset Power Switch If your unit has a Reset Power Switch then it will have a three position power switch (Reset, Off, On), if this is the case slide the switch to the reset position and hold it for 10 seconds to perform the reset.

If that doesn't work, contact them direct. sometimes they have to install clean firmware.

My Raymarine C80 CHart plotter won't load.

Check to see if this is a power issue by connecting to shore power and fully charging your batteries overnight with instruments off. While still connected to shore power, with batteries fully charged, turn on C80 navigation system. If the loading screen comes on and does not reset, then try holding down the button immediately to the right of the red power button for at least 3 seconds to see if the system re-boots.

Error code on my RC400 Raymarine GPS 0x4000091 and system is locked any ideas?

It would appear you need to perform a hardware reset.

6.2 Resetting the System
Three types of reset are available for the Chartplotter:
Power-On Reset: When you turn the display unit off, then on again,
the screen reverts to the chart display with all windows cleared.
Hardware Reset: This procedure enacts a power-on reset if the unit
has entered a lock-up condition.
To perform a hardware reset, press and hold the POWER key for 9

Hope this helps.
Good Luck!

Somenon put a power on password on a hp desktop DC7900 PC

Turn the unit off. If you open the unit there will be a jumper to clear the CMOS and a battery. Remove the battery and then switch the jumper as silkscreened on the board. usually there are 3 pins currently crossed are 1 and 2. switch it to 2 and 3, press the power button then hold for a few seconds. unpress the button and remove the pwoer cord. press and hold the power button again for a few seconds to clear all power. reconnect the jumper to 1 and 2. put battery in and plug and boot. password should be gone.

in some units there is a "clear password" or "cmos password" jumper. crossing this will remove the password in those units.

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 have a Raymarine L755 chart plotter that is continuously rebooting. It shows the initial screen and holds it for about 5 seconds and then beeps, reboots and the cycle starts over.

Make absolutely sure that all of the buttons are clear (not stuck). After that, begin by unplugging any external interfaces (including the chart card) one by one to determine if one of those is the culprit.

RayMarine sl520 constant re-boot

Double-check that the unit is getting adequate power to it (at least 10.6 V DC.

Otherwise, Raymarine is probably going to need to look at this one as the CPU in it may be defective.
