Hi, Yesterday while motoring (no wind
at all in mid Adriatic) I was receiving consistent "Loss of AIS" "No GPS
input" alarms on my Raymarine
Hybrid touch screen
. These usually resolved themselves in seconds (sometimes ten or more though) and at no time did the autopilot
disengage. Then without warning all the navigation
screens (including the autopilot) turned off. They remained blank for about 3 minutes then all came back on simultaneously. They stayed on for maybe 45 minutes then crashed again. (this happened once more maybe an hour later). After each restart (which I did nothing to initiate) the autopilot
flashed a message "Unexpected hardware
restart". We docked for the night and shut everything down.
This morning however none of the Navigation
screens (the Hybrid, two smaller raymarinps and the autopilot up in the flybridge and the ray marine screen
at the nav station) will power up. I have new batteries
in the house bank and have been on the generator
all day. The navigation breaker light in the electrical
panel is on, the fuse in the panel is good. I took the cowling off the panel in the flybridge and the small ray marine
box inside that takes the cat 5 cables
has a small led light that is off.
Any thoughts? (besides get an electrician)?
