    Faded LCD Screen

    Has anybody experienced their Instrument LCD Screen fading?

    Long story short, a friend has left his Trophy in the garage over winter, recently had a battery problem, so changed the battery (no dramas), but apparently unrelated to the new battery the LCD screen display is very faint, almost like somebody has turned the contrast down. It was find when put away before winter.

    Any ideas appreciated.

    If you enter through the configuration menu, you will see that there is a setting that can give you more intensity or decrease the intensity of the screen.

    The LCD screen is susceptible to the effects of Temperature,
    but usually high temperatures when the screen can go completely dark.
    It is possible that the screen might also be affected by extremes of cold temperature  :084:

    The Backlight of the Screen can be adjusted with the following button presses :

    With the Ignition ON -

    Press and hold "i" to access the Settings Menu
    Scroll to BIKE SETUP and press "i"
    Scroll to BRIGHTNESS and press "i"
    Scroll to adjust Brightness Level and press "i" to Save
    Scroll to EXIT and Press "i"
    Scroll to EXIT again and press "i"

    Note from the Owners Handbook Page 47 :

    The instruments are also fitted with an ambient light sensor which
    adjusts the instrument brightness to an optimal level for all riding conditions.
    This allows the rider’s preferred setting to be adjusted automatically
    to suit riding in daylight, dusk and night-time conditions.

    Note:
    • Setting the brightness under artificial lighting (in a garage for example)
    may produce unpredictable results.

    Always adjust the brightness setting under natural light.

    Cheers  :821:

    Update on this issue.

    We had the dash out of my mates bike yesterday, and plugged it into mine, the LCD screen was the same, the text is a light grey, not sharp black, which at least proved it is the dash which is the problem not his bike. Stupidly didn't take any photos.

    Re-soldered the socket for the instruments on the PCB in case there was a bad joint, and also cleaned the LCD ribbon cable connections, but o difference, so I think the screen is starting to fail.

    My mate will make contact with Triumph next week, but looks like a dash from a breakers will be on its way.

    Not sure where the ambient light sensor is as I've not looked but that might be worth a look at if it's accessible or separate.

    We have looked at the light sensor, and adjusted the light level, but this only affects the backlight.

    What we have learned though is that the instrument panel my mate ordered was not For an SE, and when he put it on the bike it did not show any of the settings for suspension and radio, so there must be a software or setup difference between the dashes fitted to the different models.

    Dash 1 returned, now dash 2 on order!

    The panels of both models are identical.

    It is normal that when you change a panel from one motorcycle to another, the settings that you mention are not visible.

    That will happen with any panel that you place on your motorcycle.

    When a motorcycle panel is replaced, all its settings must be done with the diagnostic tool.

    so there must be a software or setup difference between the dashes fitted to the different models.

     :138: of course.

    It would certainly make sense from a commercial perspective. I wonder if there's any physical marking / label that differentiates them or they simply rely on software interrogation?
