      Call support line on their web site and wait or better get into their web forum where they respond within hours

      1 thing to think about is how much effort is it worth?  The old stuff does not work with the new chart plotters and chart plotter/radar packages are selling cheap if you can get by without HD

      Thanks Jim,
      My dome is 2KW & have already purchased a used replacement unit.
      I'd like to repair my broken unit to sell to recoup my costs & I'm an ex Navy radar/navigation technician, so I'm doing the
      troubleshooting myself. I have a good idea where the problem is,
      but there aren't any schematics available, so I'd like to at least know Raymarine's repair policies. I know these units are still
      supported, but it's difficult when they won't respond.

      Best Regards, Phil

Raymarine and JRC subsequently had a messy divorce, and JRC cut off Raymarine's access to parts, which, not surprisingly, are hard to come by. You should check with Raymarine, but I doubt they will want to take it on.
