    Computer LCD Screen Fault

    Hi guys

    I noticed a fault with the rectangular computer screen situated in the centre of the dials. Basically, a part of its backlighting has burnt out, leaving a black line running through it whilst the rest is lit up red

    Just wondering if this is known to happen and whether it's likely to get worse? i.e. is more of the screen likely to burn out after time?

    Also, how much does it cost to replace this little screen and how difficult of a job is it to replace?

    Thanks. I'll try and post a picture if I've not explained the fault too well

    SCFC, yes do post a photo. If this is a horizontal line, it may be the separator between top and bottom display areas. In this case, don't worry. If your black line is vertical, there may well be a display problem. Sorry, but no idea on replacement costs.

    THIS IS NOT A FAULT.

    It was always there.

    It's how they're made.

    Thanks for that Geraldy. I'm not sure how easily you can make it out, but there's a black line running horizontally inbetween 'set' and 'check'

    Perfectly normal. They all have that. Its the split between the colour and mono colour screen.

    THANK YOU.


    I've had the car 5 weeks and thought I would have noticed it before last night had it always been there, which is why I presumed its only recently occured. Obviously not. It reminded me of a fault with my Nintendo DS where a part of the screen died leaving a thick black line right across it. I figured it was the same thing. Thanks for putting me in my place.
