I have a DSM300 connected to an E120 mfd (classic) thru a Seatalk HS router. On power-up of the dsm the following occurs:

Redlight

Immediately followed by amber light

Then 2 amber flashes

Then 8 amber flashes

meanwhile, at the router the right LED is steady while the left flashes - until they both go dark. When they do, the error 'DSM Connection Lost' displays for a few seconds until the process starts over.

 

It seems like a connection is made, but not maintained. I have tried diffent ports in the router but the behavior is the same.

 

Can anyone help me determine the cause?

 

thanks

 

joe

Welcome to the Raymarine Technical Forum Joe,

This subject was previously addressed in forum discussion Loss of connection - no data.  Should you have addressed each of the items called out within the Moderator's response (including attachment), then it is recommended that the DSM be serviced by Raymarine's Product Repair Center.

I upgraded the dsm to v4.20 and the bootloader to 5.18. The mfd is using v5.52

 

After upgrading, the error codes have changed ... the device now does the following:

2 amber blinks

1 long red

1 long amber

mfd shows 'DSM Connection Lost'

then after a pause the process starts over

 

I am reading 12.45v, all connections are tight, I replaced the connection at the breaker.

 

thanks

 

joe

Thanks for the follow-up information Joe,

Click here to view the Forum discussion which had previously addressed this subject.  Should you have addressed all of the installation items and tightened the socket nuts as specified within the referenced discussion, then it is recommended that the DSM be sent to Raymarine's Product Repair Center to be bench checked / serviced.

System Data Alarm?

I have an E125 + CP450cToday  "System Data Alarm" pop up box would appear & then vanish before I could even read it. Then it would stay for a while (5 seconds) and then vanish. Eventually it stayed till I had to push OK to get rid of it. Then the internal GPS data disappeared and after a minute or so when it didn't return, I had to reset the internal GPS.I was traveling at about 24knots so the GPS took about 30 seconds to initialize but it went to a HDOP of 1.2 in another 10 seconds. I…See More

E7

I just recieved a new E 7 MFD.  I noticed in the box it came with a chip that has the new light house version, and it says it needs to be upgraded before the charts can be added.  Since the latest software is not already loaded on this brand new E7, I wonder how do I know if the touch screen needs to be upgraded?  The link on this forum does not give any serial numbers or offer any way to determine if this new  E7 MDF touch screen needs to be upgraded. Also when researching my purchase the…See More

c-map charts

I just bought a used sailboat and it has an Autohelm ST50 Navcenter at the inside Nav Station that uses the old C-Map cartridges and an Autohelm Navcenter 600 Chartplotter that uses C-Map NT C-cards in the cockpit. They are both connected to all the other electronics using Seatalk. I am having trouble locating the C-Map Cartridges for the ST50 for the area that I am going to be sailing. Does anyone know of a good source for these cartridges? Also,  if the two units are hooked up through…See More
