DSM Port on RayMarine C80

I have a broken pin on the C80's DSM port which connects to a DSM250. The DSM250 is giving me a blinking green signal, but the C80 is reporting 'No Data Source'.

What choices do I have in restoring functionality? A Seattle authorized service dealer told me to ship it bac to RayMarine, along with $599 for a depot swap-out.

You definitely need to send the C80 back to Raymarine. As long as you can be without it for a few weeks, just send it with a good description of the problem and all of your contact info. Include a request to have them contact you with cost before performing the work. Then you can decide what to do. I think you will find it to cost less than you might think.

The only other way would be to change the PSU board in the unit. The connector back plane is connected to this board.I am a authorized Raymarine repairer. I could drop ship you the board from Raymarine and email you an instruction manual on how to change it.I am not located in the US so shipping the unit to me for repair becomes expensive.You can also check with your dealer in Seattle first but I do not think that he can buy the board from Raymarine. Raymarine policy on repairing product is different from country to country. We are on the other side of the world so Raymarine allows us to repair there product as it is to costly to ship it all back to there repair facility in the states or the UK.If your unit is still under factory warranty then if you open it it will void the warranty.So then you would have to send it to Raymarine. With a diagram if you are natural a technical person you will not have a problem changing the board.If you are technically challenged I would say send it to Raymarine. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: what is the connection path from Garmin 72 to raymarine c80, using NMEA 1083

I'm taking this as you want to send the gps information to your C80 not receive from the C80? If this is the case the brown wire on the garmin is the nmea data out +. The Black wire is considered nmea out neg (-) of the garmin. So hook the garmin brown to the white on the raymarine. Hook the black from the garmin to the green on the raymarine. That means you are outputting lat/long info to the raymarine from the garmin.

Can't update software


Hi
As you have isssues with boyh software update and chart I would put my bet on the cartridge reader, it could be a loos or broken pin. Use a penlight or good light and inspect the pins in the reader for damages and check that there is no pin stuck in the Navionics cartridge. If no pin is missing it may just be loose, can be fixed by opening the plotter inspect the reader from behind and use a glue gun to resecure the pin(s). In worst case you will have to replcae the reader (affordable).

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.

I bought a C80 Raymarine Plotter this has a NMEA pigtail with Brown, Screen, Yellow, Green And White wires I haave also bought a RS 125 Receiver this has a pigtail lead with Red , Green, Yellow, Brown and...


If you have a Raymarine pilot it makes sence to wire it all up to Seatalk. Wire as follows Red to red , silver to silver, yellow to yellow, brown(on rs125) to silver on seatalk buss Green (on rs125) to red on seatalk buss.The above is for the conection between RS125 and C80.
To hook the pilot to system you just need to hook the seatalk lines (red, yellow,silver) from the pilot to the conection with the RS125 and the seatalk cable to the C80.(Color for color).The sea talk connection for your pilot can be picked up from you course computer they are labeld and colored on the unit.
If you are not running a course computer as in the case with the older wheel and tiller pilots you will need to take a sea talk cable and cut it. Once it is cut you will see the red yellow and silver wires and you can tap into there . Remember to connect the cable back together were you cut it. Hope this helps

Scanner self test result...is display comms/fail /raymarine c80 18" dome


Chances are that your scanner cable may be bad. Check inside the dome and make sure that the little wires going into the black connector from the radar cable are seated correctly and all the way in. This can cause tons of problems. Also check to make sure that your pins in the back of you unit are not corroded or broken off.

You have either the DSM250 or DSM300 digital depth sounder module installed. The C80 is not seeing it.

There is an LED status light on the DSM. For starters, it should be lit either red, yellow or green to confirm it is actually powered on. We are hoping for a green light.

Double-check the cable between DSM and C80 for tightness. Also double-check the DSM's power cable for tightness.

The DSM's are sensitive to voltage level onboard. Make sure the DSM's connections to the circuit breaker panel or battery are tight and clean. Double check with a multimeter the there is 12V DC available to the DSM.

Let me know what you find.
