On the drive home today I made a call via BT. When I was done I tapped the "X" to close and this is what the screen did......

Might either be a loose connection in there somewhere or the screen is borked. I guess your only way to find out is to tear it open, or if there is still a warranty on it send it in.

No warrenty on it anymore..... I really liked the HU, but I guess this is now my chance to try this 80P.

This is precisely why I'd never pay more than a few hundred for a head unit. The days of a HU built to last 10+ years are long gone.

Looks like a loose ribbon cable. I repair tv's and that's what happens to some of them. Shouldn't be too hard of a fix unless it's something else. With volume off do you hear any noise from the LCD?

That's what I thought too, especially if he's had it long enough to not have a warranty anymore I wouldn't be surprised if a ribbon cable wiggled loose. Tear it open and check it out OP, can't hurt!

No crack that can be felt or seen on the surface.

The LCD could be cracked on the inside and you wouldn't feel it and in some cases wouldn't see it (The LCD is going to be so dark it'd be hard to see) but in this case... it looks like a ribbon cable.

So I took the face off yesterday to see if I can fix it. I disconnected & reconnected all the ribbons and it didn't fix it. So I'm just gonna order another HU. I'll fix this one later on and sell it unless someone wants to buy it as is. It sux cause it still works great!!!!! Just can't see half the stuff, lol.
