Default Screen goes black?

Hello, my RDS8000 has had this problem since new, the screen turns black after only 5 minutes in direct sun light. It takes 20 minutes or more in the shade for the screen to clear enough to see it again.

Another flyer at my club has an RDS8000, we put it in direct sun light for 20 minutes....no problems, screen looks fine. I noticed his screen appears to have some sort of film or protective covering that my radio does not have? Do these radios come with this film covering the screen for protection from the sun? I'm thinking that perhaps my radio had this and maybe I removed it.

Thanks!

If you have a problem with your screen turning black, contact service. It is mostly likely not anything you did.

Hello Mike, here is what happened............



Hello, My RDS800 screen goes black when exposed to sunlight for 5 minutes or more. It has done this since new. I thought it was normal until another flyer at my field said his RDS8000 never has had this problem.

He left his RDS in the sun for 20 minutes to show me that his radio does not have this problem, and sure enough, it was fine.

Can you help me? Thanks!
