LCD Display

I'm new to this site, so please forgive me if I get things wrong. Anyway, I have a 1989 GL1500 that the LCD display (clock, radio display etc) has all but disappeared. My worry is that It is getting harder to see the rear shock air pressure. I understand the displays are no longer available. Here in New Zealand we have very few wing dismantlers so getting a second hand one is not an option. Does anyone know of a way to repair the LCD?

I recently contacted Sierra Electronics with a very similar problem, only in my case, the RADIO information does not show, my Air Pressure and Clock show just fine. They said it sounds to them like the connection at the radio has a weak connection.

In your case, I would suggest cleaning the connection at the LCD Screen as that would be my guess to your weak point.

This ( viewtopic.php?f=14&t=10998 ) post shows how to get to the LCD Screen as well as converting the various lights to LEDs. . . .
