Question about Furuno GP31 GPS Receiver
My displat lcd has black lines and is very hard to read i was wondering where i could get a new lcd and how to replace it
The only place to get that screen is through a Furuno authorized dealer. The unit is sealed and gas filled to remain waterproof. You're best bet would be to send the unit in to Furuno for repair. You wont save much doing it yourself because the cost of the screen makes up most of the cost of the repair. They will also make sure that all the software is up to date for the new WAAS satellites that recently went on line.
Have you tried adjusting the contrast? On that model I believe you tap the power key while the unit is on and you will see 2 sliding scales on the screen, one for brightness and one for contrast. Up or down arrows select the scale and left or right arrows adjust it. If the contrast and brightmness aren't tied into the power key on that model, they're somewhere in the set up menu.
If adjusting the contrast doesn't help then the screen has most likely failed. This is commonly caused by old age, however repeated exposure to extreme heat or cold can cause premature failure.

Furuno do not offer repairs for these units. The LCD module is flow soldered directly to the PCB with about 40 tiny wires. Furuno say that the cost of repair outweighs the cost of a new unit...

It's an ominous date to be looking for a manual! Has it stopped working or is it just the date that's wrong?
12 Dec 2010 is 'GPS week number rollover' for the GP-70 Mark 2. See www.furuno.co.jp/en/pdf/080531_notice_en.pdf for details.
