  4. Sat nav problem fixed :P I've just unplugged the mylar strip, cleaned the contacts and now everything is fine. You need just to unlock the mylar strip before pulling it out. Saved 2000 Euro.
  5. Hi Geoffres, yes, it changes when I tilt the screen, I think that the problem is in the Mylar strip, because the same thing happened with my laptop computer. I will check this wire asap. It should be great to have the possibility to replace this wire, I'm not sure to be able to repair it. Dario
  6. Hello, the screen of my sat nav cd of my '99 is200 is not working properly, some times is in black and white, or blu or red and after opening it several times is in colour again. I've read in a previous post that the reason is due to a defective wire. I would like to know if it's possible to find this wire as a replacement or I need to replace the sat nav just for a wire I want to thank you all for this great and helpful forum. Regards. Dario

Hello, I've bought another is 200 '99 radio in internet but unfortunately it has the same err3 problem In Italy it's out of warranty and I need to pay for repairing 410 euro, maybe in England there is somebody that can repair the radio for a more reasonable price.
