Hi all..

Has anyone experienced this?

According to other forums is quite a common problem especially in our hot weather.

It has happened to me though.

Anyone with experience how how they fixed theirs, kindly share.

Thanks!

How did yours kong ?

No Picture at all or touch screen doesnt respond but got picture ?

Mine kong once too..touch screen not working but picture and graphic as usual.... its the ribbon ( 4 lines ) at the lcd screen that broke its connection, so no touch screen input.

What i did was :

Dismantle the ML head unit
Dismantle the LCD Panel from Head Unit
Remove the Ribbon Insulation
Apply " Circuit Writter" to reconnect the broken connection. (apply at all 4 to be safe)
Assemble back and back to normal.

Or

You can get from a Recon Unit from Ebay which cost around USD 400-500 and replace it one to one.

I screwed up trying to fix it up myself.

I spoil the dashboard trying to take the unit out....it was pretty nicely stuck especially the air cond vents...don't believe how easy it looks on youtube...

Then I accidentally yanked out 4 wires from its loom when removing the unit and fried the board trying to figure the sequence.

In the end I sent it to Tom's in Bangsar to mend my wrongs.

Cost me rm2k plus to fix everything up...it could have been a 'mere' rm600+ to replace the touch screen...
