Raymarine e series malfunction

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

Connect an raymarine E120 Display to the RNS software in a PC


Try a cross over network cable from the PC to the E-Series. Raymarine Made each one of their cables as a straight cable so you would need to buy the cross over coupler or network switch box to use it with another unit. It's nothing different from normal networking with the exception that they have removed wires 4,5,7 & 8 from the cable and it's a straight. Give that a try.

Connect Ratheon RL 70 to Raymarine E80


The two devices can share Nav data only. No radar, Sonar or Chart will be shared.
Hook the RL70 and the E80 together on SeaTalk and all data will be shared both ways. Alternatively, it could be done with NMEA 0183, which is directional, or you could also translate the RL70 data to NMEA 2000 and share it that way. As long as you have all Raymarine equipment, you are home free using a three wire Seatalk connection, with only two hooked up, Yellow and Bare, color to color.
Remember, this will share Nav Data only.

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.

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.

Raymarine G series radar


Your problem is likely noise from the motor. Modern diesels use high speed networks, so it could be interference. Next likelihood would be a software issue. Is the diesel set up to display info on the G display?
Solution could be re routing cables, grounding or un grounding devices. First step is to send your processor to Raymarine, sorry, necessary step to eliminate hardware failure. This is a tough symptom, so do the easy stuff first.

Send unit back to Raymarine. Two year warranty. I just talked to the factory about a communication error between the E series and the radar. Radar just stopped communication between radome and E unit.

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.
