Post by jimmy9 » Sun Jul 07, 2013 11:35 pm

Hello folks,
I have a Mio Knight Rider GPS and my screen quit on me, It talks but the screen is black, what would be the kind of replacement screen would I need?
What is the replacement screen part number?
Any info on where to get one?
I know the connecting ribbon has to be a certain type, but which one? I see screens all over ebay but which one is the right one?

thanks for any help

For future reference, I got this figured out. I picked up a screen on eBay for $25 it is model number LM5430HF10- 003
Those 0 are numerical not alphabetical

Yes I got it working again, like a charm with a new screen, now that I know how to open it, I should also put in a new battery since the original did not last that long
