Question about Raymarine M1500 15 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor
Raymarine E120, after 4h on, display went dark in daylight position (you see only dark violet when viewing close), as if all LCD cells would block all light. Changing to night position all information is here, but to dark to do any work.When presing repeatedly on "day" key, this toggles, when same for "night" key it remains readable but dark. Changing the brightness has no effect at all. Software update no change too. Boat is not in water yet, 13.4V, 28°C all time, back of E120 is free to air in aircond room, can not overheat.
Any idea would be highly appreciated as I am in the Philippines and Raymarine service is far far away.
Blubaju, probably cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp backlight failure! if unit dosen't have electro-luminescent style backlighting. All LCD panels require WHITE light to see what is on the screen!!! Is same common problem that computer (pc) lcd monitors suffer from!!! I suspect that if your unit has CCFL's, that the SMPS power supply or CCFlamp INVERTER circuit has a problem common to ALL LCD monitors. I should think that any BIG TIME tv/monitor repair shop could examine the printed circuit boards and effect a repair for you! Just mention that you think it suffers from the BLACK SCREEN of DEATH syndrome!!! Also mention that to RAYMARINE!!! when you call them and **** them out!! 12fixlouie .5hr nrth/wst of Windy City Rate this on fixya if this msg helpful??
