My AC200 display is loosing horizontal display lines. The display is still readable but this is very annoying.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?

If you have please advise how the problem was resolved.

Was it repaired under warranty?

If out of warranty, please, if possible advise cost of repair.

Many thanks in advance of valued responses.

Please PM if you wish to remain anonymous.

I have two issues AC200 display and F80 display, I think using similar technology, IMO suspect at the least, at worst not acceptable for the application and price paid.
Meridian quoted 150 UK Pounds to repair AC200.

Neither AC200 or F80 Displays have degraded any further over recent time. As it is still readable I decided not to invest further in this product as the display is a little used feature in this Zone.

However I remain disappointed in quality of components utilised by M in above products offered.

Thanks for the reply guys

Yes that is disappointing for premium products

I think I'll have a look inside and see if something can be done ( although I suspect majority of components will be surface mount ... not an easy DIY task )

Thanks again
