CTX 3030 LCD Screen

Black vertical lines growing in My sight. I called ML about this and they said that the LCD is going out and I’ll have to have it replaced. I haven’t had it any deeper that 3’, and I take pretty good care of My investment. Yes it’s a work horse and I am to blame for that, but treated with respect. Anyhow I asked if this was due to the water, and the Rep said that it wasn’t external or internal reasons. That this just happens. I mentioned that it should be covered, but it’s out of warranty, and this thing just happens. Hmmmm.... Pretty hard to accept with that price tag. I sucked it up and sent it in today. I was told that it was $200 + $75/hr for labor. That’s brutal!! No more water with the CTX. And this machine has pulled a lot of Silver and keepers out of hunted spots for Me, and I will back that up with proof!! That’s why it’s being fixed. If it hadn’t done Me a great job it’d be in the trash. Thanks for listening. And letting Me vent. Randy

I had it happen to one of my machines as well. Mine had never been in the water, that was 4 years ago and I was quoted $185 plus shipping. I've seen it on at least 8-10 machines on various forums since that time.

All LCD's can go out, just the way it is. I've seen a few from different brands become unreadable and get lines.

Most of the time it don’t happen in Two to Three years.. like the 3030 does.

That may be so, the ones I've seen were old "new" stock after stored. They went bad on the shelf. The standard temperature range of 0°C (32f)to +50°C (122f), I'm sure they are not the extreme temperature models.
