NCDC 2015 - Black Screen
« on: 26 February 2021, 19:26:36 »

Hello,

sorry, I'm French, my english is perhaps not good.

I've problem with my NCDC2015 from Omega 3.2 Executive (2001). The screen became totaly black, theres' no information of Tuner/GPS/Board Info etc... but the sound works.

I'didn't found same problem in forum. Someone had same problem ?


Where do you think the problem could come from and what should be done?  :-\

Is it a colour or monochrome screen?

If Monochrome (GID) it could be the illumination bulbs in the rear

or

If Colour (CID) I would say the LCD panel has failed, normally they do not fail in that way though.

Either way I would remove the instrument cluster and try re-seating the single connector (GID) or two connectors (CID) on the back of the screen (** Do not turn the ignition on with the instrument cluster removed **). If screen is the Monochrome (GID) screen it would also be worth replacing the illumination bulbs why you have access.

It's a color screen.

at first, the screen went off but the sound worked. Then it came back after a few minutes. Little by little, it started working again less frequently. Then it never came back. Today the radio works only on one channel. Unable to change channel the commands no longer respond. The sound volume is working.
I pulled the radio out of its slot and put it back. the problem is still here.

I will try to access the screen connections but since I can no longer change the channels I have the impression that there is another problem. Or the screen shows information that I cannot see.

Thanks VXL V6

Bonjour mon ami.


If the radio is starting to play up again, it could be the EEPROM needs reprogramming - starting to see that fault a bit now on these.

The black screen, is it black as if there is no power, or looks powered, but nothing on the screen.  It can be a subtle difference.


I would certainly check the connections of the 2 plugs at the back of the colour display.
