Either the cord to the chart plotter is faulty or the chart plotter itself is dead short
have an electrician do an insulation test and circuit test on the cord and plotter unit

Fuses


Make sure that the fuse is not blown by checking with an ohm meter. The circuit that the wheel pilot is on may also have a breaker. Make sure that the breaker is not tripped.

If the unit keeps tripping the breaker or blowing the fuses, then the motor is going bad, or at least needs some maintenance.

In Speedometer 6y5-83570-s6 there are two black wires which is ground and which goes to fuel tank?


My Raymarine E80 depth display kept freezing up (display then says "DSM connection lost"). Of course, this seems to happen more often when entering a tight shallow anchorage in Alaska's inside passage. Raymarine tech support recommended that I update the display software and then update the DSM300 sounder software. I did this to no avail. Then Raymarine told me to install a dashboard mounted toggle switch inline with the positive power input of the DSM300 module so I could do hard re-sets (turning off the system power or powering down the displays does not reset the sounder module). This I did. Now when entering a tight anchorage, the display still freezes, but at least I can do a hard re-set with the new toggle switch and have the unit back up in about 40 seconds (a life time in a tight channel with the current running, etc.). Now, Raymarine says that if I send in the DSM module to them, they will replace it with their new circuit boards that solve this chronic problem that they have known about for a long time (hello, this is a significant safety issue - why no recall?).
Don't mess with this - send your DSM300 in to Raymarine!

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.

Hello! Our Raymarine A65 will not start up. It starts a boot process but does not show "Raymarine A65" on the display and no chart is displayed as it usually does. Regards Odd


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.

Log and trip function not registering


It is unlikely the problem is in the A65 screen.....most likely it is an issue with the paddlewheel itself, its circuit in the depth/speed transducer, or least likely, in the DSM25 sounder module.

Both the log and the trip functiions are read from the paddle-wheel sensor of the connected DSM25 sounder module and transducer.

1. Make sure you have a DSM25 sounder module and transducer with a paddle wheel (the A65 is available without the DSM25 option.)

Double check the connections between the DSM25 and the A65, as well as the transducer connection to the A65. There is an indicator light on the DSM25 to confirm it is on.

2. Make sure the paddle wheel turns freely. They tend to get fouled easily with debris and growth.

3. Make sure the A65 is giving to a reading for SPEED when underway or when having a buddy spin the paddlewheel by hand. Do not confuse SPEED with SOG. SPEED is from the paddlewheel.....SOG (Speed over ground) comes from your GPS sensor and is not used by A65 for log or trip purposes.

If you get npo speed reading at all the paddle wheel may be defective or the depth/speed transducer may be defective. See your dealer about a replacement.

Fish finder


You have either the DSM250 or DSM300 digital depth sounder module installed. The C80 is not seeing it.

There is an LED status light on the DSM. For starters, it should be lit either red, yellow or green to confirm it is actually powered on. We are hoping for a green light.

Double-check the cable between DSM and C80 for tightness. Also double-check the DSM's power cable for tightness.

The DSM's are sensitive to voltage level onboard. Make sure the DSM's connections to the circuit breaker panel or battery are tight and clean. Double check with a multimeter the there is 12V DC available to the DSM.

Let me know what you find.
