sick SID FIXED

well yesturday i managed to naff up my SID completely :roll: i had a few dead pixels so i thought i would fix it the way i did 18 months ago, by using a ball point pen and scribing across the ribbon to re attatch it to the curcuit bourd, unfortunatly i used a ball point pen with too small a ball and i just cut the ribbon right off, so instead of having a few dead pixels i now have a very blank screan :evil:

Are the SID2 and SID3 interchangeable? My car has a SID3, but I hardly use the extra functions. It would make it easier to find a used one.

not sure about the 900 but all the sid2 functions work in my 9-3 (9-3 sid 2 is equivalent to sid3 in the 900)

the 900 has sid 1,2,3, sid 1 is just temp and radio display sid 2 is the same as 9-3 sid 1 and sid 3 is the same as 9-3 sid 2. my pixels were dieing so i took sid apart and where the display bourd is connected to the circuit bourd by a ribbon, this ribbon comes loose on the circuit bourd so i drew a line with a bic ball point pen accross the joint, this worked for 18 months but the second time i tried i used a ball point pen that had a very fine tip and it cut the ribbon off
