Replace ICOM M802 LCD

Hi - the LCD display on my ICOM M802 is fading with the center spot nearly unreadable. I have an email into ICOM for repair -- are there any other options? Is the LCD replacement part available and/or is this something that is easily replaced? Any independent repair options?
Thanks
Don

Re: Replace ICOM M802 LCD

You can find a copy of the service manual here http://www.radioscanner.ru/files/dow...manual_new.pdf its a russian site but manual is in english. or here Downloads - Summary - IC-M802 Service Manual You can find it other places as well just google for it.

The LCD display is custom to icom, and is generally no user replaceable. Unless your comfortable and have a soldering/desoldering station you should just ship it back for ICOM to repair.

From ICOM, the LCD display is $112, plus $92 or more labor, plus shipping. I'm thinking it might be better to buy a new display for $300.

If you are shipping it back, consider having Icom check and tweak the entire radio at the same time. Parts age, frequencies drift, as long as you're paying the shipping, might as well amortize that out. There may also be firmware or other upgrades that they'd do at no charge.

Thanks for finding that out. I'm about to send my control head in for the the same problem and now I have to think about it some more, $100 difference..

Re: Replace ICOM M802 LCD

Not even $100 difference -- I found ICOM RC25 $290 online.

Any ideas on what causes the LCD screen to burn out. I used the radio a two weeks ago to check in with the 14300 maritime mobile net and I didn't notice the display. Checked it out last week and a big oval looks 80% faded.

I'll probably buy a new one w/warranty vs. shipping to/from ICOM and waiting 2+ weeks. I've never had issues with frequency tuning or drift; data with Pactor modem works good.

The only thing that might shift the balance is having the "clipping mod" done to the radio. No-one's ever commented on voice clipping, so it's probably not something I need to worry about. Would be nice to have ICOM go through the radio, make any tune-up adjustments and update firmware, though.

Re: Replace ICOM M802 LCD

But most of the radio is in the big black box? My screen faded over 2 years probably. This year I had to leave it on Chris Parker all the time because I couldn't always see the numbers.
This is a bit like the damn cord thing. At first there was no problem with the cord, it must be the user. Then they admit it and give you a new mic. There is no reason for the screen to burn out. They should be giving us a much better deal.
