BMW X5 4.4i , Navigation Monitor Problem

25

Asked by Dec 31, 2010 at 03:58 PM about the 2003 BMW X5

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi,
The monitor of the navigation system of my BMW X5 2003 has a weired problem.

The monitor works perfectly sometimes, but other times it gets bright white so that I cannot see anything.

It is completely random, sometimes working sometimes not (it gets white)!!???

(it is not battery problem for sure, since I have installed a new battery last month and nothing has changed)

Do you know what the problem is?

I believe the problem is a small flat connection in the back of NAV. When u press the bottom for the loading a tape (old tape), the front panel of Nav is coming out, if you put ur hand behind the pop-ed out monitor, u will find a flat connection. If the connection is mechanically lose or has defects, it make the above problem. When I touch the connection, the problem will be solved for few days. However, I believe, I have to replace the connection for a permanent fix.
