Nakamichi Radio Lcd

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where I can get a LCD for my 98 ES Nakamichi stereo? A search of the forum revealed a lot of hits on how to get a LCD for a Pioneer stereo, but none for a Nakamichi stereo :( Any help would be greatly appriciated.

I have a 1998 GS300 with the Nakamichi stereo system 7
speaker. The LCD display appears to have gone out completely and cannot see
stations or selections whatsoever. I would like to know if anyone knows who replaces
LCD display and or where to order the LCD to do it myself?

I looked at all ten pages and nothing about the Nakamichi LCD replacement. Unless I missed something?

Thanks anyway..:-(

Contact factoryradioservice.com in California and ask. They replaced the LCD bulbs and installed a wonderful aux-in port on the back and an on/off switch on the front of my 2000 LS400 Nakamichi radio last year. Excellent, fast and reasonable.

Thank you very much, that is very helpful, before
you replied I did find last night your information this factory repair service
and was going to contact them today.

Your information is the best I have found. I hope
they can replace my LCD because my radio is in mint condition and works well
with great sound; the only thing is the fading of the LCD.

Again, thank you buddy!

Sorry. I was hoping that John Nguyen would offer you a used Nak LCD salvaged from a non-working head unit. I don't see any used head units for a 98 GS on his website but you could check his eBay store or see if someone else on eBay has a working head unit for sale. Have you checked auto salvage yards? Or advertise for one on Lexus forums including Clublexus where a coworker bought a 98-00 LS400 Nak system a few years back.

Now that I'm typing on a real computer instead of a phone .... the problem is that Nakamichi went bankrupt short after Toyota stopped using their products in the 2000 model year. A Nakamichi company exists today but it is not the same organization as the old one and does not support the previous Nakamichi company's products.

I recently read how supplies of used Lexus Nakamichi components is drying up and that the only alternative may at some point be to install an aftermarket audio system. It's a bummer. The Nakamichi in my 2000 LS400 is an incredible system but it is one of the reasons I'm planning to replace my LS next year.

1990LS400,

You have been great help and a very concerned Forum friend. You are an example

of a what a friend should be. You have followed up and you know what it is to

need assistance from someone, anyone.

I am very thankful for your persistent help on this.

I am going to contact as you suggested all the salvage locations in my area

as swell as the other Lexus forum.

I will keep this forum inform in case I do find an answer or solution and

someone else can use it here at some time in the future.

I love my old 1998 GS300 with 156,000 miles. All I have done to the car is oil

changes, gasoline and the occasional wax & Shine.

The only repairs have been a timing chain, recently a leaky oil timing chain

gasket, & Only recently had to change the Throttle assembly and a Power steering

hose. Not bad for 16 year old car.

The Sound system is fantastic except for the fading LCD but everything work

and I love the Body shape, sorry but the new 2013 all look like Camrys!!

Thanks again1990LS400

Hi again,

Just ran across these postings about members who are parting out a couple of cars, your vintage. I have no idea but maybe one might have a head unit.
