You can pimp the contrast a bit using the setup menu options, it helped for me. For me this is perfect :-) Should anyone need LCD's i have also some spare's. Living in Belgium but i can easily shop to neighboring countries as well.
Greetings and many thanks,
seems I finally found the fix for my old #497 controller with broken LCD ( 24 pin ) , too bad the item have an insane shipment cost ( like $120 ).
Looking for any European user (I'm from Italy) that could shop the LCD replacement at reasonable price.
To be clear I need the MHS50747-24AG Display Assembly 2 x16 LCD 0003
Thanks, clear skies
