Faded OLED Displays

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I see a lot of faded and malfunctioning OLED displays, particularly on relatively new TEAC gear such as this UD-501.  It's a shame as the rest of the piece works perfectly.  Probably easy to get to and replace, but where can one purchase replacement display components as a DIY fix for this?

 

Thanks

Depending on the display used, it could be easy or difficult to source.

Most displays use a standard interface protocol but that doesn't stop a manufacturer

from using their own custom driver/protocol.

the nt503 has a real oled display (I just took it apart and looked) but the one in your picture sure looks like a VF display.

and all VF displays do this.  likely a standard part, take it apart and look for the part number and manufacturer.

Interesting.  If I find it's a standard part, I'll buy a bag full of them.  Reliability on these seems to be rather poor.

 

I thought the 501 had an OLED display like the 503.  But I don't see that in TEAC's literature, so I think I got the 2 mixed-up.
