Network includes e120 and e80, open array radar and 600kw transom mount ducer.

multiple intermitent problems include "no fix", "no scanner", and "no signal" for the charplotter, radar and sonar, respectively. just had the entire system re-wired by reputable local marine electroncs company. did not solve the problem. of course everythin worked ok when they were there.

    My E80 blacks out sometimes. It can be just a flicker or the screen blacks out for several seconds. Only once did all the keys quit working including the power button and the screen rebooted itself repeatedly. The cable had to be disconnected before I could shut off the E80. It was working perfectly again the next day.

I have found that many of the issues you are experiencing are a result of operator error (no offense). For the system you have described, you will definitely have a network switch which interfaces everything. Is it possible that the network switch is powered from a source that you dont always turn on? In other words, if the system has multiple breakers and the network sw is tied to one of them, using only one display for example may leave the switch without power and give the error messages you described. Bottom line......BE SURE that the entire system is powered on. Another possible cause is master vs slave. One of the two displays is the master. If you power the system up in the wrong order or without the network switch in the loop, the slave unit will automatically ask you to set it as the master. NEVER do this. Changing the master will result in data loss as you described. Finally, if all of this checks out, verify the software in your displays (the version will appear in the bottom right during start up). Your software should be at least V4.29 but there is a newer version available so if you need to upgrade make sure you get the most recent. Good luck

Just got an Eagle Fishmarkde pathfinder need help w/mounting transducer to motor at end of shaft. If that is possible?


Hi Mike
The transducer (depending on which one you have) should be mounted to the hull of the boat. If a transom mount, at the back of the boat of course and if a through-hull or in-hull ducer in an area that provides good contact with the water at all times.

You shouldn't mount the transducer on the motor.
I was unable to find a reference anywhere to the Fishmark DE.

No transducer


Make sure the plug that gives this unit power is secure. Also I think this device has a 2ft branch that goes to the ducer. Make sure that's right too

Can not get clear reading of bottom when travellling over 9 knots


Your in hull ducer is getting turbulence. (in hull or not) A transducer will stop working is the tiniest cabitation or air bubble interferes. If possible, relocate the ducer. If you have a transom mounted ducer, try angling the leading edge up. This is a 90 % chance caused by turbulence on ducer. The other possibility, al;though remote is that you alternator or ignition system is interfering after a certain RPM on the motor.
Try first to manually gain the FCV620. You will always need to manual gain set the unit if you have an in hull ducer.

I would recommend upgrading the E80 and the DSM to the newest software levels:

E80 - 5.52
DSM - 4.12.

You can download the software off raymarine.com and load them onto different compact flash cards. Both softwares are upgraded through the E80 display.

Raymarine a65 transducer 200kh fine 50kh not reading bottom


First do a factory reset and determine that all the setting are correct. You can get this info from the manual. Remember you will loose any saved way points when you do the reset. If that does not sort you out;Remove transducer from transom mount and duck tape it to a broom stick so that the transducer face is facing down. With the boat standing still in calm water and the ducer hooked to the DSM25 push it below the water and see if it see bottom on 50khz.The idea here is to get the ducer in another location to see that it is not getting reflections of the boat. 50Khz is very prone to reflecting of stuff around it. If you still have a problem I would send the ducer and DSM25 unit back under warrant .No need to send A65 back it should not have a problem.

Navman 4500 fish finder w/transom mount transducer


I finally got an email reply from Navman. If the unit is less than two years old (mine is not) they will repair it. If it is over two years old, or if you can't prove that it is less than two years old, you can ship it to them and they will repair it for the low, low price of 355 US dollars.

Pretty nice of them since it appears these units are highly problematic isn't it? I am wondering if they guarantee their fix, or just have you on the hook for another 355 dollars later.

Good Luck Everyone,

Walt

Furuno sounder trandecer problems


the leading edge of the ducer should be higher than the aft portion. The leading edge must not be below the bottom of the transom. To determine if it is turbulence or radiated interference, put the boat in neutral and run motor up in RPM, if it fails then, with boat stationary, then proximity to motor is a problem and you should buy and in-hull ducer. glueing the transom ducer may or may not work well.

Master vs. repeater confusion


The master/repeater selection is for the purpose of determining which display is in control of the waypoint and route database.

Turn on both units and let them boot up. Do not answer the master/repeater question until both are on. Then press "Set as master" on the preferred one.

The units remember individually if they were set as a master or repeater the last time they were on. If they are powering up to find themselves in a different configuration than they were previously in, that will prompt the whole master/repeater thing to happen.
