MY RAYMARINE A65 CHART PLOTTER/ FISHFINDER HAS NOT
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.
Water temp way off. where is the temp thermister
Your water temp is measured by your transducer. There is a slight possibility that the transducer is OK and it is that the DSM25 is not relaying the TEMP info to the A65 display. Your best bet is to either try and find another DSM25 (friend or dealer) that you could try and plug in with your system. If the problem is still there, it is your transducer. If the problem goes away, then you would have to send in your DSM25 to the repair center to have it repaired. I believe the going rate for the DSM25 is $175 for a complete rebuild.
Display disappears after a few seconds. The GPS
This problem could occur due to various reasons has you said
On/Off switch could be defective.
LCD flex cable might be loose or defective.
Old batteries will starve when the device starts so it will die.

Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)
ON THE SCROLLING DISPALY IT DOES NOT SHOW SPPED OR
Did you cancel the current trip and restart the GPS? Try one of your preset waypoints and see if you are getting data that way. It may just need a reset, unplug and allow it to discharge first and let's see if that does it.
Apelco 365 fishfinder. Broken
i did the same damn thing and am amazed this question is on the net. i bought a new system but plan on taking it back. the 365 was a pretty nice model and i'm just going to splice it straight to the power supply. but i was lucky, the two pin connector is the damaged one so drilling it out and splicing it SHOULD be easy. well see. at this point i have nothing to lose.
hope this helps.
Sea talk failure
Remove all wiring from 4000 head, hook up only 12V, if seatalk fail continues, it is the head. if seatalk fail goes away, hook in instruments one by one until the bad head is found. Seatalk is 12V red, Ground Screen(bare wire) and Data yellow (pulsing voltage).
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.
Raymarine a65 transducer 200kh fine 50kh not reading bottom
First do a factory reset and determine that all the setting are correct. You can get this info from the manual. Remember you will loose any saved way points when you do the reset. If that does not sort you out;Remove transducer from transom mount and duck tape it to a broom stick so that the transducer face is facing down. With the boat standing still in calm water and the ducer hooked to the DSM25 push it below the water and see if it see bottom on 50khz.The idea here is to get the ducer in another location to see that it is not getting reflections of the boat. 50Khz is very prone to reflecting of stuff around it. If you still have a problem I would send the ducer and DSM25 unit back under warrant .No need to send A65 back it should not have a problem.
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
When I start my outboard my A=65 shuts off, It can
This is a very common marine electronics problem. You probably only have one battery that runs the engine and the electronics don't you? The engine when started creates a very significant draw of power when it's cranked. If the battery is old more so than ever. When this power draw happens, your machine brown's out. The electronics try their hardest to keep the voltage up but they can't because they're being starved. This can cause electronics to have memory issues, get garbled up and not perform correctly upon startup. Either add a house bank that is separate from your start battery or turn your unit on after the engine has started.
