Climate Control Lcd

Recommended Posts

:censored:

Does anyone know who can repair the Blacked Out Display on the Climate Control Unit?

A new one costs $395.00 from a Toyota Dealer in California.

Surely this can be repaired.

It is not the bulbs, on a very hot day, the display is less blacked out, but normally it is 80% black.

:wacko:

Looks like I'm getting a few views, but NO suggestions!

Is this unique to my SC?

It's more of a nusense than anything, but I would like to get it fixed!

If it is not the bulbs, then the display is leaking and it can only be fixed by replacing it. Sorry.

That's what I thought someone would say!

I was hoping that there was somewhere I could send the unit and they could replace the LCD.

There is a company in San Fran that refurbishes them. Just take it out and send it to them. The address is pinned on the LS400/430 forum under Climate/Clock. They can save you about $100, providing their rates haven't gone up since I got mine done.

If you're interested, I can get you a new one cheaper than what the dealer is asking.

ATTENTION EVERYONE

I had the same problem with my lcd a couple of times. I was very upset when the bulb went out the first time around last year. I got so upset that I hit the darkened portion of my lcd screen the the palm of my hand.... and what do you know.... the light was back on!!! i was so releived! it went out about 6 months ago again, did the same procedure and it has been working fine ever since. my car has like 132k on it. So whoever has this problem, try my procedure before spending $$$ and thank me later. Good Luck!

p.s. - don't be afraid to hit a little hard.

The problem with the Bulbs are a different issue. The fluerescent tube was bad about burning out or shorting. But the LCD problem I am discussing here is when the Liquid in the display leaks. The only way to correct this is the replace the complete Climate Control Display Unit or find someone that can replace the LCD panel in the Climate Control Unit.

I contacted Joseph, and he has experience in replacing the LCDs of the Radio, but I explained how common the problem with the Climate Control Unit is and he is researching a replacement.

:D

:huh:

Great looking instructions, but this does not help me with my SC400. I still have not found anyone with a replacement LCD for an 93 SC400.

Can anyone HELP!

I think Lextreme just might be able to help you. The lcd panel might be the same or cross reference part. You will need to verify that with him though.

Lextreme, if you get a chance - drop Matt or Steve a message. I think they have been trying to get a hold of you. If you are interested in space on our forums - to continue, you should probably contact one of them. Thanks for your assistance.

Contacted Lextreme and they only offer for LS400. These parts do not fit an SC400.

TapRecycling has a used replacement for $250.00 plus shipping.

I don't understand why no one can get a replacement LCD for the SC400 if they can get it for the LS400.

If I can source just the LCD, I think this would be the cheapest option.

Still Waiting!

Did you ever get this fixed? I just spoke with Eddy at Mikado Engr. They will replace the LCD for $195.
