Pixel on dash

Hi has anyone noticed what appears to be a dead pixel on the dash.. It appears just above the km reading on the display as a white dot. It's random but annoying. Am getting dealer to look at this as well as the dreaded cruise not working tomorrow..

Cheers

Re: Pixel on dash

Not really the right forum section to be posting this. It’s better off in the trouble shooting section.

Do you mean the EVIC? Do you have a picture to show it, that would help greatly.
Interested to see what the result will be as most LCD manufacturers allow for a few dead pixels before it is covered by warranty.

Re: Pixel on dash

And it is there on all screens regardless of display selected?

Your screen is fairly dusty and there is a lot of glare in this shot, makes it hard for a fault to stand out. Pictures of the screens is always best done with as little ambient light as possible.
I gather it is the white dot below the word “to” and above the letter “k” for km, is that correct?

Re: Pixel on dash

Does it appear on all screens?

Some EVIC screens have dots on that section to indicate there are pages to the left or right, does it still appear then?

I don't really see it on your pic. But I have what I think u r describing. It's on all screens and random. This is my second '14 WK2. Both did it and it seems like it eventually goes away if the drive is long enough. It is 1 dot or pixel like u describe, @ the top right corner of where my odometer reading is. (Bottom of EVIC) Can you post a diff pic or PM me a pic

Thank you.

Yes, That is exactly what I have/had on both '14s. It is very odd

Btw, I totally laughed when I saw your arrows again. It reminded me of that funny thread the other day!! Thanks again

Here is how the pic was showing up for me the 1st time:

Re: Pixel on dash

I am disappointed as I am on my work PC, I have a restriction on the allocation of arrows.
If I was home, well, you know the results.

Actually, if I had used photo bucket, dam too late.

Hahaha!!!!!!!
U r lucky ur work PC doesn't block the site.
And here is the pic that was damn funny for those that didn't see it: image-2099458345.jpg
*Property of Snuke*

To the OP, I have not broached this to the dealer as I am sure it would entail them messing around in there as it would be the only way to fix. Let me know if you do. I have not seen anyone else with this.
