Probably a bad printed circuit board, just had to send mine in to have it repaired. When I hit the power button, I did hear a beep, but then nothing displayed. Mine was still under warrenty, so don't know the repair cost if yours is not.

A65 unit does not indicate proper position. When alongside a buoy it shows the buoy ahead by about 50 feet. When the buoy is 50 ft behind the sail boat, the A65 shows it abeam. Even my handheld Garmin does...


You may be aware that the system is "detuned" for security reasons. With GPS, repeatability is the key. A bouy is NOT a stationary item, especially at low tide, I suggest that you test your accuracy with stationary objects. A map (chart) cannot know which way the tide is moving a bouy, only the approximate anchor location, the bouy floats and moves....

MY RAYMARINE A65 CHART PLOTTER/ FISHFINDER HAS NOT BEEN WORKING , THE CHARTPLOTTER WORKS FINE , BUT THE FISH FINDER WONT PULL UP BOTTOM OR ANYTHING . I LOOKED AT THE LITTLE BOX THAT CONNECTS TO THE...


Likely your DSM25 (that little box that connects the transducer to the display) will need to be rebuilt. The red LED is saying that there is an internal fault with the unit. You would need to send the unit in for repair through Raymarine (as there really is not anyone else who can do it), and they would have to replace the main circuit card in the box. I believe that they are charging either $150 or $175 to repair those now... but likely the only way you will get that one to work again.

Raymarine A65 Shuts off Whenever it is in the mood


My A65 was constantly shutting itself off. I did the reset and the unit is working just like it should now and I have had no more problems.

Go to Setup, System Setup, then Settings Reset and press Enter. This returns all settings back to their original factory values. It should not reset your waypoints or route lists. Raymarine recommends you backup your waypoints on a separate Compact-Flash card but I didn't do that as I wrote down my all my coordinates. Hey I'm a fisherman all I care about are my fishing spots.

I'm not sure what setting it was that I changed that caused the adverse affect of the unit shutting itself off but resetting the unit did the trick. I was more careful about adjusting the display settings to my liking by doing them one at a time and waiting to see if the problem returned. It has not so far, knock on wood, and the unit is working the flawlessly now.

With the charts page up, start by hitting the find ship softkey at the bottom of the screen.If that find the boat on the chart all is good.If not you need to check you have a GPS fix. Go to GPS screen and see you are seeing satalites.
If all is good when you hit find ship and the boat disappears again from chart while underway you will need to go into the chart setup menu and see if the screen amplifier is turned off. If off turn on.This is first place to start. Hope that helps

No depth reading while on plane.


Depending on your transducer type, you may have a liquid filled type that simply needs refilling. If this is the case check for leaks and get it redone. If not it could be transducer placement or cavitation under the hull.

When the engine starts, there is a voltage drop as the starters crank, followed by a power surge as the alternators kick in and the voltage comes back up.

Ferrites are only there to prevent RF (Radio Wave) interference from other onboard devices.

You should either:
-add an isolated battery to the boat to service only your electronics. That way it is unaffected by the starters.

-There are several devices on the market like Newmar Power's "Start-Gurad" that automatically switch electronics to backup power during engine start. They work great and the electronics don't skip a beat.
