2009 Navigation Screen stays on a blank white screen and fails to display any information.

Post by Flyboy1470 »



Hey all! just picked up a 2009 Honda Goldwing with the Navigation System and Airbag. I noticed that the screen was starting to show the common signs of failure so I purchases a new LCD unit from china and began the process of switching the screens. Before attempting to fix the issues the navigation worked perfectly. After successfully swapping over to the new LCD panel I ran into the problem that the screen turns on but remains solid white. Thinking it was possibly a defective new screen I switched back to the old LCD panel and the problem persisted (shown below).


Troubleshooting attempted so far

- Unplug battery for 20 minutes and reconnect

- Checked all fuses

- Checked screen and dash connections

- Checked connections on Nav computer in the trunk

- Checked connections for Nav computer under seat

- Unplugged and re connected the screen with the bike turned off and to ACC


Battery Voltage is at 12.5V with bike off and at 14.3V while running the screen functions in neither scenario. Any help with this problem would be much appreciated. Thanks!
