RE: No Data Source" - Digital/HD Digital Radome and HD/Super HD Radar Pedestal
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum Scharpfy,

It is recommended that the vessel be connected to shore power, that its batteries be permitted to fully charge, and afterwards and while still connected to shore power, that the radar be tested. Should the problem abate, then it would appear that the problem is resulting from insufficient power being supplied to the VCM. Should the problem continue, then it would be recommended that:
- the switch (if any) controlling power to the VCM is in the ON position
- the switch on the back side of the pedestal is in the ON position
- the power circuit from the VCM to the breaker/fuse switch through to the battery terminals be inspected to ensure that the gauge of wire is appropriate, connections are tight and free of corrosion
- the Digital Radar Cable has not been damaged/modified.
- the loaded system voltage supplied to the VCM be measured to ensure that it is within its operating range ... note that the MFD does not supply power to the radar and that the MFDs and radar are typically installed using separate power circuits.

Should the checks listed above not identify any issues, then it would be recommended that the radar pedestal (not simply its core) be sent to Raymarine’s Product Repair Center to be bench checked / serviced. Please note that should the equipment have been installed by a Certified Raymarine Installer, then onboard warranty to include removal of the equipment, shipping within the USA, repair, and reinstallation of the equipment should be available.
