Beneteau instrument panel fault

We have a Beneteau Oceanis 46 which has a small LCD instrument screen showing battery, fuel and water levels. This screen is now displaying a triangle with number 1, probably indicating an electrical fault. However the Beneteau manual does not list codes for electrical faults. Can anyone help us to identify the fault, and recommend a replacement if the screen and its circuit board are faulty? We would appreciate any advice and assistance.

Careening Bay, did you ever find out about the fault? I have it on my Beneteau 50 & can't find anything on it. Thanks in advance

Re: Beneteau instrument panel fault

I did not receive any help or replies from anyone including Beneteau and two of their Australian agents. Eventually I simply pulled the wire connector from the back of the panel, counted to ten and reconnected it. This apparently 'rebooted' the VDO system and it is now working fine. Apparently poor electrical connection caused by corrosion.
Beneteau owners must be self sufficient in Australia!
