Hey ITBarbie, share with us if cleaning the ribbon cables at the back of the head display solved the issue! Thx, CHC

This happened last year to mine. Got the ribbon in the headunit off, cleaned and then re-seated. Then, I did the connectors on the TV-Module (blue and white), cleaned the pins.

Has worked this long...

BTW: I noticed that my monitor seems to turn yellow, whenever the temperature inside the car reaches a certain level. I might be wrong, but it constantly happens after 30min driving with the heating on.. :-P

Lots of people complained that they thought that maybe the screen issues were related to weather and even I did at first but I am certain now that mine was caused by the ribbons cables at the back of the screen. Mine been okay ever since
