Cobra 29 LTD classic LCD channel display replace

I`ve got a new cobra 29 LTD classic, I would really like to replace both the lcd channel display, and the meter light to a different color. Have quite a bit of backgroung in auto wiring repair. Is there any info on this procedure that you know of, or is it pretty straight forward.
I`d take it to a shop, but there`s none local, I`d have to ship, heard too many horror storys

Hello, the channel display is kind of touchy, as far as getting to it and of course it is soldered to a small circuit board and there is a certain way it goes back in. There is about 9 legs on top and 9 on the bottom that need to be unsoldered and resoldered( carefully). You can buy them in red,green, and bue. The meter light is pretty straight forward. You have a hot and ground wire. I used to use colored LED lights in the meters, way cool. They are not hot, and they last almost forever. The LED's are fairly easy because if you hook it up backwards, it just won't do anything. Let me know if you feel comfortable doing the solder work, and take a look inside the bottom cover at the channel selector because it has to come out with the channel readout. I used to charge $25.00 just for that because it would take me an hour just for the ch. selector, and about 15 min. for the meter light. Let me know one way or the other,,, Mechanic

    Hello, I had to close my store due to health problems, this last year I've been in and out of the hospital twice. The second time was for 2 weeks. I have been doing a little light work on radios here at home, for my regulars that would just not leave me alone. At one time I had a radio shop in Iowa sending radios to me for repair, thru a regular driver, and my shop was in northern Indiana. Aw well, the good ole days,,, Mechanic

You can change the channel display yourself, it's not that big of a deal. as long as you are comfortable taking your radio apart and doing some soldering. I did mine the other day in about 30 min.

    the only certian way about putting the display in is to make sure that the small dots on the display are facing down, indicating the Bottom.

    You can also easily change the SWR meter light with an LED. You can go to Radio Shack and buy you choice of colored LED and appropriate resistor A 5v 30ma LED needs a 270ohm resistor to be able to hook it up to 12v. You can look up an LED resistor calculator online.

Start button on dishwasher not working


Question Does other buttons work on display if so then you have a display problem with start button and it needs to be replaced.
If not then you can either still have a display problem or wire issue or bad main board. If you know about testing electronics ok if not call 1800 Samsung for help if it is there unit.
