    Is it completely dead or just faded? These units are notorious for fading. Mine does it from time to time (well, quite a lot of the time, actually).

    There's no known cure other that complete replacement which is expensive. I've seen upwards of £400 quoted before now.

    Mine fades as well around the edges, and it seems to do it when it gets hot outside or in the car.
     
  5. mine was dead when i bought it, then it decided to work perfectly for about a week and i havnt seen it working since.

    That sounds more like a wiring fault. Have you tested the circuit, & all the connections etc?
     
  7. have checked the connections behind the radio thats all so far, thought it may be the wiper switch any ideas? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/idea.gif
