Green Bar of Death sammichSID


Recommended Posts

I have been experiencing a green bar on my LCD (I am moving this out of another topic for relevancy). It started after months of normal use. I have checked and rechecked the solder joints and pins leading to the LCD on my sammichSID but to no avail.

My sammichSID otherwise works fine, the startup LED's flash, I have sound when I play through it, but... green bar of death.

I've tried adjusting the contrast knobs and they make the bar brighter and softer.

Is this the best replacement?


thank you

Easy fix: I will send replacements.

FWIW, I buy those exact LCDs from that supplier for the kits. They are good and cheap but about 1 in 50 don't pass my QA due to imperfections with the LCD substrate or whatever... they have some bright green spots around the active area. I test every LCD I sell, because it's less time and effort than trying to troubleshoot someone's sammich* which doesn't show a boot screen :wink:
