Fixing LCD at front

Hi folks,

The LCD on my HD has gone on my Hummy - is there any way to fix this easily or is it a case of just sucking it up? image 2.JPG image1.JPG


Any advice greatly received!

Thanks,

Paul

Is the display LCD? It looks like the actual segments are glowing rather than being rear-illuminated, so that makes it LED or VFD.

The only chance you have is if you can track down the problem to a poor contact. There may be a ribbon cable (or flex foil) which connects the display to the circuit board, or the display itself may be in a socket of some kind. Careful!

I'll bet that the display segments are multiplexed, if they are it's not going to be a cable or connector problem as the same segment would be missing from all 4 digits. It would have to be dry joint to that single segment or a faulty segment
