No Overhead display.

My overhead display has quit working on my '93 GCL. All that shows is orange horizontal lines. Has the electronics gone bad or is there an easy fix?
Thanks

I've been through 2 in mine and literally just got an NOS unit in the mail. Took several posts on a facebook group before I found someone that had one. If you have any junk yards around there I recommend getting as many as you can and replace the caps. Heck, Ill take some spares if you can find them. Same with VIC's, I cant find them and Ive made several posts asking for them. We dont really have any junkyards around here.

The capacitors went bad in mine and ruined the traces on the little board. If I wouldve caught it sooner I think I couldve just replaced the caps but replacing them did nothing.





I had replaced the caps in this photo before I noticed the trace was gone. Used a multimeter to confirm it was gone.

When the one on my 93 died I opened it up and nothing looked bad. I put a junkyard one in and it was fine.

If you can follow the trace, it can be replaced with a wire. We call that a "white wire"

So, you replace something that won't work with something that will, and you call that one "white"? You racist pig.

If it didn't go to that teeny tiny diode I would replace the trace but I cant do anything with that.

I am with jeepjeepster on this one.
I have seen the threads where guys get all electrical and technical and fix them.
I am not capable of doing stuff like that.
So I grab them whenever I see them for an reasonable price
I put a overhead in my '00 XJ that did not come with one.
It works fine.
But if it ever craps out I have back ups. LOL.
