As a newbie to this forum, I'm still kinda feeling my way around; I'll have more time at the weekend to navigate around the site proper.
I've recently acquired a 164 Super 3.0 24v in excellent overall condition.
It's had 1000's spent on it by it's previous owner, but one of the little jobs he didn't get round to was the LCD display.
Most of the digits aren't working; those that are, are bright and clear.
I know this is a common problem and it wouldn't be the end of the world if I never got it going again; the rest of the car more than makes up for it!
I've not yet attempted any sort of repair, thought it better to get some good advise first.
I've noticed a few people advertising a repair service, with one guy in the States charging 500 dollars (did I read that correct?)
I have over 20 years experience of audio / visual repairs and usually, the main problems I've encountered with semi functioning LCD's are bad soldered joints, occasionally capacitors that have dried out, or problems with the connection between the PCB and the LCD itself, in the form of either a ribbon cable, or a special conductive rubberised strip.
Before I attempt to remove the LCD for inspection, do any of you guys know if a repair kit is available, or even if it's worth me attempting a repair in the first place?
