View Full Version : Radio Display Problem

Hey all, I searched other threads about this and I feel like mine is a slightly different case.

The right half of my radio/time display does not light up, seems like it is in a perma-shadow. It's near impossible to see the EQ setting. I believe this happened once before a while back but now it's always this way. The other threads detailed a complete dash light failure but that is not the case with mine.

Hopefully the pic will help, sorry for the quality I used my camera phone.
Any ideas of what this might be and if it's fixable?

I think we'd get a better idea if you took a picture with the flash off.

I don't have a flash on my phone, that's just the way it came out. Just look how the right side is almost "shadowed." It may be an LCD problem. The only way I can explain it is that the light is very dim, seems like it's getting blocked or something?
I'll try and get a higher quality digicam for a better pic. Thanks for the response.

Nah, sorry I was just bein' a d!ck.
It seems like most people with the display problems either buy a new one or go aftermarket.
This thread might help you out..

like i said in other threads....find a good aftermarket headunit. try pioneer or alpine......they have tons of options if you want to add amps and they both have great iPod compatability

My center LED was out. I "fixed" it by hitting the radio trim with my fist. Probably a loose/dirty connection.
