    Does anyone have or know of a place where I can find some photos of the basic settings for the Multi-Information Display? In particular, the radio operations. This is what I'm dealing with and I can't tell what button is FM or tune etc. based on the manual. Any help for the meantime while I...

    SOLD SOLD SOLD - at least the MID Put in a Dynavin N6, so I have a cassette deck and bracket, but more importantly, I have the MID with no missing pixels, phone compatible, DSP, and was working with a6-CD changer. If anyone wants the CD-changer, let me know. It has a full working cartridge...

    Hey everyone. I recently gutted my DSP system, so I have an MID with fully working pixels available for anyone who needs it. The cheapest one on ebay that I saw with fully working pixels was upwards of $200, so I figured for a quick sell, I will do $100 shipped. I am firm on the $100 because...

    I'm a new poster & here because of the debt I have accrued by taking my car to area mechanics for repair. I love my car & want to drive it until the wheels fall off (which may be sooner than later) so I am trying to stay on top of any repairs that need to be made, but they are piling up & I...
  5. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    As if they weren't hard enough to read with the pixels flashing in and out, now they are in a foreign language (German perhaps?). I used to be able to make out some of what was reading on it (trunk open, check coolant, etc), but now everything has switched over to a different language after...

    I bought VDO's repair service for my absolutely lousy looking MID display via an eBay auction for $195, which included USPS Priority shipping back to me. Shipped the unit from Seattle to SoCal on Tuesday, 3/8 using FedEx ground, VDO received mid-day on Friday, 3/11, repaired it either that...

    Hello Everone - Like many of you, my MID/Radio display is broken. The pixel are being lost on a daily basis and it has become unreadable. This is totally unacceptable to me regardless that it is out of warranty. Radio displays should last the life of the car. The flaw is in the cable that...

    There's been a few discussions about pixels of late. I need to get mine done, the speedo / mileage / on board computer readings .... sometimes they are as bright as Las Vegas Lights, sometimes as dim as my brain is right now. My question is basically about the `ribbons` that are on offer from...
  12. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I recently attempted to fix the pixel problem on my X5 by buying a spare MID unit and replacing the ribbon. I put the ribbon on the wrong way so no joy there! ....but now neither unit will power up. I've checked the fuse (no. 7) but that's OK and all other electrics from fuse 7 are working...
  13. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Original post here. Thought I'd cross-post since the original is buried on page 22 of the dead pixel thread. Just called BMWNA to get the ball rolling on replacing my now completely failed radio display - no dice. They are only helping owners with failed pixels in the odometer display. VERY...
