Replaced mine about a year ago.  However.....since that time when I
first turn the radio on, the screen is dim and re-adjusts over a 
few minutes.  I've not explored the problem, and I wonder if that
rather minor problem is a result of the change in display boards 
or if I need to make further repairs.

Please advise me if the "warm up" part of the deal.  I would comment that
the new display is MUCH sharper then the original black and white and
is really easy to read.  As I was warned, however, there is some 
flicker, which is much more severe if you use the white background.

Overall, it's a good fix, and just took me about an hour or so to
do it with the directions that TT sent along.
