    Discoloured LCD screen (2019)

    Has anyone else experienced this? Seems to be more apparent when it's wet, but when it's showing it can be really quite distracting.

    Cheers

    Yes. Less pronounced than in your photo but it doesn't seem affect how well I can see the dash.

    It seems to be a common issue on the MkII.

    The MkI screen looks like it fell off a scooter, but at least it is properly sealed.

    It seems to be a common issue on the MkII.

    The MkI screen looks like it fell off a scooter, but at least it is properly sealed.

    It's not the misting that a couple of folk have experienced on the Mk2, that's different and must be caused, as you say, by some sort of leak.

    The  issue TG's mentions is a little strange and I don't know what causes it but for me at least, it's barely noticeable.

    I wonder how many others have it and how bad it gets for them?

    The pattern doesn't seem to be static, which makes me wonder if it's fine condensation which is somehow refracting through the plastic. Perhaps moist warm air coming up from the radiator.

    While it's a bit distracting, I'm more concerned that if condensation is forming there, it might be forming elsewhere within the cluster and causing longer-term issues.

    I've had it on both my Crossie's and it didn't develop and certainly didn't look like moisture which would be a fine mist and maybe some droplets.

    I've occasionally noticed this on my screen, thought it may be condensation but could not understand why a sealed unit would have this, strange really

    It looks like you have a screen protector fitted could that be the problem and not the screen itself.
    if it's not a protector fitted then has it been cleaned with washing up liquid, this couls cause the rainbow effect.

    No screen protector and I certainly don't clean my bike with washing up liquid! In fact I avoid spraying the screen/binnacle area with water and just tend to wipe it down with a damp microfibre cloth.
