Lv1 display issue

My LV1 will show the purple back light but does not show the display other than that. Brand new batteries from 2 brand new packs we tested and nothing has worked. I know the usual of looking for pinched/loose wires and ribbons but nothing has worked or been noticed.


Any idea what I can do?

The screen likely burned out and needs replaced. It has happened to me a couple times recently (Geo 3 and then LV1) and frankly irritates me a little bit. The screens aren't horribly expensive though ($30 ish) and are reasonably easy to install.

It's funny how they wear out right after they are out of free replacement too. Has happened to me twice now on both a Geo 3 and an LV1.

Not too bad but there are some delicate parts so you will want to be careful. There is a thread somewhere on here showing how to do it (I believe for an Ego 11 but its the same board/screen). Take your time and don't force anything.

Edit: found it for you
