Recently I have been losing segments on the LCD display. At first I thought it was humidity because on some occasions the segments returned. Now it seems to be of a more permanent nature.

Can this be repaired? If not, the dealer wants $1300+ (CDN)for a replacement. Is this reasonable? Finally, I have had offers by parts dealers to try to find replacements but in Canada we are using the metric system so the mileage has to be in kilometers and I understand that U.S. equipment is exclusively in miles. What to do? The problem is affecting the speed/rpm/trip.

Hi there BlueNoseand welcome to the forum. Someone else had this problem recently, the fuel gauge bars were going on and off. I don't know if anyone repairs these, but the first thing to do is clean and adjust the connector block pins at theback, sometimes it's as simple as a bad conection.

I`ve seen many of these displays on EBay..I`d give that a shot if you find replacement is necessary

Another welcome BlueNose, dealer prices are totally outragous. You may be able to repair the connectors at the LCD connector. But if you have to buy, be advised that the US spec bikes had the selector for MPH or KPH on the controll consol. I thought all the Aspencades had this option. As for the odometer, maybe it could be recalibrated, or scavanged elsewhere. "Good luck" :gunhead:

Hello BlueNose,

I'm having a similar problems on my GL1200. The instrument panel segments come back if you (a) turn off your light (b) cycle the ightion key 0ff/on several times, (c) when the LCD guages light up then (d) press the starter button. Sounds bizzare, but it works. In my case I think there is a bad connection with the suspension system as my LCD flickers between air suspension reading and engine temp. Fuel guauge is now workable though.

Good luck,

Kenneth

I had the same problem on my 84 GL1200 AE Asp

Buy one off E-Bay me thinks?, Uh Uh!

The unit I had purchased had a worse problem than mine, resolution was to split the two units and place all the good bits together.

Not as easy as it sounds, the connections between the board and display are rubber strips with conducting elements running through, moisture or damp air near any of these components spells disaster.

If you are feeling brave you can clean the contacts and rubbers using a weak alcohol solution, any spec of dust will send you back to square one.

On following the above I have improved on my display but have one annoying Bar out on the fuel gauge, THE LAST ONE Ahhhhhh!

Hello Mallers1,

Very interesting what you say about re-working the LCD unit. I might give that a go in the future.

Stay upright,
