    A strange one...

    Or is it?

    When listening to the radio this morning, I pressed heated rear screen as it had a tad bit of condensation on it. As soon as it was pressed the radio reception went all fuzzy. Switched off heated screen, radio reception ok... So it would appear that the heated screen somehow interferes with radio reception ?..

    How is this possible?..

    if i remember rightly there are 3 plugs that go into that unit, when i see one busted before, the solder had come away from the board, you could get away with just re soldering it,
