    HALLELUJAH FOR THE INTERNET AND GUZZITECH

    I know its an old thread, but the Roblatt describes EXACTLY the same issue as I have on my bike - intermittent LCD plus the blocked vent

    I shall take apart the cheap dash I bought for spares before I delve further into the one on the bike and see if a straight LCD swap will fix things.

    I know Carmo can't source a replacement LCD

    If you're still out there Robblatt CHEERS :clap::clap::clap:

    Tris,

    The LCD screens are no longer available, lucky you have a spare. They are just unplug the old and plug in the new once the dash is apart. The dash takes about 15 minutes to remove, strip, rebuild and replace on the bike (but then again I've stripped mine out many times with trial and error rebuilds.

    Let me know if you get stuck.

    cheers

    Robert

    I might just take you up on that Rob :clap:

    As an aside, I know the spare dash without its codes wont start the bike, but will the LCD light up and do its stuff?

    The spare was was only a 27 pound investment and I was told that the LCD worked but haven't tried the dash on the bike yet.

    Even if it doesn't work, Christmas wont need to be cancelled, but it would be nice to know before surgery commences ;)

    Tris,

    The LCD screen should work once you swap them. It's just plug in screen. If you were replacing any of the computer processors it might be a different story.

    From memory, when you get to unplugging the LCD, there is a thin white plastic bar that runs along the length of the plug, this is used to wedge the plug in place - don't lose it.

    cheers

    Robert

    Sorry Robert I didn't make myself clear.
    If I do no more than unplug the existing dash from the bike and plug the spare in and turn the ignition on, will the LCD light up or does the imobiliser get in the way?
    If it does at least I know I have a good LCD before starting to take it things apart
    Cheers
    Tris
