Default problem with navpod display

Yacht owners: my friend's navpod system on his yacht isn't working. The display is incorrect. Can anyone recommend a technician/business to check this out? He can't get on sailingx for some reason, so I am posting for him.
cheers
Erin

Not likely much cost effective that can be done. The segment drivers fail over time so it takes either replacing the screen or the chip driving the display, which is pretty much integrated into the screen.
Edit: another possibility is the polarizing filter delaminating. What happens if you press lightly on the failed area? Still not easy to replace if that's the case either.

No actually Rob on Issey had the same instruments and had pretty much the exact same problem. It was the cheapo connector to the screen that was failing due to years of damp.

He was able to fix it pretty cheaply using rubber multi-connector strips scavenged from $3.00 LCD displays he purchased at some electronics store on Main street. It was a bit of fiddling around, but not even all that technical if I recall.

Just search for Isseyikasso on this forum and PM him and he should be able to give you the lowdown.

Though he's a busy guy, so give him a bit to respond.
