Info screen radio/time

Post by darrellfulfer » Thu Oct 04, 2018 5:49 pm



I have a 2000 gold wing my screen between the rpm and speedometer has a rounded blue color taking over the right side of the screen. I kind of know my screen is dying, has anyone else had this problem, if so,what and how did you take care of this problem?

It is not saveable. It will have to be replaced. They good news is they are available.
Here is a link for you to check out:
https://www.taninautoelectronix.com/198 ... er_lcd.htm

You can buy the LCD screen on amazon or Ebay or from Tanin.
They can be replaced and they are available.
They will replace it for you or you can do the replacement.

Unfortunately, the "creeping crud", puddle-of-doom syndrome is a sign the LCD panel is failing completely. There's no "fix" other than replacement of the panel.

On the plus side, there's a company (here's a link to the post - viewtopic.php?t=38810) that is now producing 100% compatibly replacement LCD screens for the GL1500 and, as I recall, the price is very reasonable indeed - as in, cheaper than the used, dubious-condition ones on Ebay.

My advice would be to bite the bullet & buy one of the new, aftermarket screens. The word is that their quality is outstanding, and you'll likely never have trouble with it again.

**Edit - looks like someone beat me to it!
