Default CTX Screen replacement

Has anyone on here replaced their CTX 3030 screen?
If so, did it yourself or sent it in?
I sent mine in last year to have the screen replaced. Its been fine. I used it about 3 weeks ago and it worked fine. Today, it turns on, but the screen is blank.
Looking to do it cheaper than minelab.

Open yours up and reconnect any flex cables and see if this fixes it. Extremely rare for a lcd display to just die.

Mine shorted out from getting water in the screen at the seam. Luckily it was when it was under warranty.

This. Normally if there is an issue you get a dark line but not the whole lcd going out. If your lucky maybe the ribbon cable just became disconnected.
