Opel Omega / Vauxhall LCD pixel failure repair kits


** spare parts for professionals and for DIY'ers **


Opel and Vauxhall Omega, Astra, Zafira and other models all have the very common LCD display failure on the right side of the instrument cluster, which ends up in missing or fading pixels on the screen. If you have the following failures on your LCD, you probably facing the same issue:

- Single pixels or complete lines of pixels have disappeared.
- The LCD display is difficult or impossible to read.
- Some cases the display returns to complete working order once cluster hits high or low temperatures.

The pixel problem lies with the ribbon cable that connects the LCD display to the circuit board. Dead and fading LCD pixels can be restored DIY simply replacing the faulty ribbon cable. LCD pixel failure repair kits, ribbon cable light bulb, background light lamps are now available for DIY repairs. The pictures below show the LCD display before and after the ribbon cable replacement. This is just an example, an Omega display:

Questions-answers:

Is it really a pixel failure or just a dead bulb behind the display?

It is easy to distinguish:

- If the bulbs are out behind the display, then all the rows and colunms do work on the Opel MID's display, but the background light of the Opel LCD display is uneven, or some cases the display is completely dark. This case no need to repair the pixels, you do not need a silver or carbon ribbon cable, nor a new Opel MID's LCD display. This case you just need to buy the lightbulbs that provide light behind the Opel LCD display.
- If the Opel MID's display has really pixel problems, then typically lines or colunms of the display are missing. Several cases the characters are broken, numbers and letters shown on the MID's display are unreadable - the backlight is even. In case of a real pixel problem, when one or more pixels are missing from the display, you need to buy a silver ribbon cable, a carbon ribbon cable, or some cases a complete Opel MID LCD display. It really depends on that if it is a BMW, a Mercedes and Audi, VW, Saab or other make, and of course if it a MID display, a speedometer, a board computer or other LCD dipslay. Most cases, when you have a pixel failure, and you decide to repair it, it's really worth to buy a set of bulbs too, as bulbs tend to go out during repair - this is due to the massive mechanical shocks experienced during the pixel repair procedure.

Can I do the pixel repair of my Opel MID's LCD display at home? How about tools?

Well, most of the Opel MID's LCD pixel repair kits we sell are designed to be simple and easy to use. The word easy should now be the subject of further discussion. An average Opel MID pixel repair is far more difficult then replacing a lightbulb. You definitely have to have good mechnical skills, and some household tools, such as nippers, screewdrivers, household tape, and other goodies to fix things around the house.

If you have to ask one of these questions, then you definitly should NOT do a Opel MID's LCD display pixel repair at home (we were asked these questions before, this is not a joke):

- Which way should I turn the screwdriver to undo the screw?
- What is a display?
- How do I find the LCD thing in my Opel?
- How do I glue the LCD into the dashboard?
- Is it as easy as replacing a lightbulb?

Is it coming from China, or is it a high quality product coming from a proper factory?

Well, Pixelfix is an internationally registered trademark. Pixelfix only sells the highest quality Opel silver ribbon cables, that are capable of lifetime operation. We sell most of our repairs with lifetime warranty, and you will find the exact same displays, cables, and other spare parts that we use for professional repairs. The silver ribbon cables we use for Opel MID display pixel repair are real silver, which is a very expensive base material, that is why the price is much higher compared to carbon ribbon cables. We also sell carbon ribbon cables, but the motivation to produce carbon cables for Opel MID LCD dispaly repair was only to be able to compete pricewise with the cheap chinese ribbon cables, which you may also buy for LCD dispay pixel repair on Ebay, but with a significantly worse or completely useless final result.

I ordered an Opel MID's display today, when will I receive it?

You may keep an eye on your package, if you ordered the Opel MID's LCD display with postal delivery on you may check the status on your local post office's website, or if you ordered next day deliver then you need to see TNT / FedEx or DHL tracking site for status.

I started the repair, but I do not seem to deal with it:

No worries, we do provide technical support, and help repairing of your Opel MID's display. However, there is an advice you ought to consider before starting the work. If you have not done this before, this is mandatory. PLEASE read the manual, and if available watch the video BEFORE starting the work on the Opel MID's display. This will definitely save a lot of time and will help to do a hassle free work.

I replaced the silver ribbon cable, but still there is nothing on the Opel LCD’s screen:

No worries, this symptom can be due to a bagatel problem which can be fixed easily. If there are no pixels on the Opel MID's display at all, that MUST be due to one of the followings:

- the Opel LCD display’s contacts or the panel are not perfectly clean - this case there is no contact between the Opel LCD display and the panel
- either the Opel LCD display or the silver ribbon cable was mounted in the wrong direction, so the contacts are on the wrong side

- the alignment of the silver ribbon cable is not good, to the pads of the silver ribbon cable do not match the pads of the Opel LCD display or panel.

I started the repair, but it seems to be beyond my technical skills:

Let's talk about the worst case scenario, you started the repair, but you do not seem to deal with the repair of the Opel MID's display. This case we have a backup solution. We always stand behind our customers, so you may send the Opel MID's LCD unit to us for repair, and no matter what the condition of the unit is, we can help. More precisely, up to this point we always succeeded, meaning none of our customers managed to do such a damage in the unit that we could not fix. The repair does not cost a fortune, in a lucky case it is 20-30 Euro plus return delivery cost only.
