Question IDK LCD Repair or replacement

Disclaimer: I have almost no experience with soldering or any form of electrical engineering



This is the only apparent problem my 75 has at the moment.

I am thinking of trying to repair it first by following https://the75andztclub.co.uk/forum/s...d.php?t=184339. Unfortunately the guide seems to be missing all images.

In case my repairs don't succeed, I will need to replace the display. I know that there used to be someone selling new displays around here, but it's my understanding they aren't in the business anymore, at least for the time being.

I have found what seems to be a compatible display on Amazon: https://amzn.eu/d/7nniioC. Is there any way to make sure? Has anyone here ordered these before?


Whether I repair or install a new one, I am also interested in attempting a colour conversion to amber like here: https://www.the75andztclub.co.uk/for...d.php?t=311163. Do I understand correctly that it requires changing the backlight LED? If I need to get a new one (LED), where might that be?

Yes - am afraid Ricksta is no longer trading - but this company maybe the solution

interesting, I do not recall seeing any mention of them before.
Has anyone used them and have either positive or negative comments about them?

The MG Rover Custom Car Parts business, previously owned and operated by forum member Rick-sta, has been sold and is now owned by a chap called Stephen. I believe they're contactable via their Facebook page or website (although it doesn't appear to be working).

The main obstacle is my being in Cyprus, so the only option is to have the part delivered here. How about that Amazon link I sent before?

I know this might not be of any help, but when Rick was offering to supply the screens for you to find someone else to fit or to have him to fit them by posting your clocks to him, I spoke to Marinabrian to see if he could do the job. He said he could but advised that the man supplying the part should fit it in case the soldering goes wrong you wouldn't have leg to stand on.

Wise words indeed. I drove down to have Rik do the job and he did a great job too , but it was later found that the IPK would fade after 20 mins of use as it warmed up.

Rik eventually found a solution , so I had another drive to him where he repaired it free of charge and it has been fine ever since.

I'd look into finding a postal service or a short UK holiday with your clocks in your luggage !

That may be a possibility, but I also want to learn to do these things myself!
