Default Trutrak Digiflight 2 display repair?

Hi Guys n Gals.
I have a Trutrak Digiflight 2 FP that the display is failing on......I understand that this is a common problem.
Has anyone had this done as a "post warranty" repair free of charge?
Who are you using for repairs to Digiflight equipment.
Thanks
Neil

Neil- I talked to MidContinent Instruments & Avionics located in Wichita, Kansas last week. Ask for Bruce, as he is the TruTrak expert. I was told, if you have the blue screen, the repair cost is not so much. If you have the other screen the repair cost is almost the cost of a new unit.
The blue screen unit will have part #8000-164.
Hope this helps.

Hi Jim,
Yes, you are quite right. Just got off of the phone with Bruce......$765 for a new unit....$800+ to repair the old one. Bummer.
I am going to take the lid off of this one and see whats inside!
Neil

Well I doubt Trutrak make their own displays, but a search on the www with the numbers that are on the back of the screen have not turned up anything.
CL-107-3002-01
W020060704-01-060811
PO-20060616001

Does anyone have a unit that has a good display but has another problem they wish to sell?

Advanced Flight Systems (Rob Hickman) sold an autopilot with their label that was a TruTrak Digiflight II. Maybe you'd find a new display somewhere for sale with a different label. Calling Advanced Flight might be helpful.

AFS tends to be very responsive to emails, but Iíve found that my most productive discussions with them were over the phone. Rob, Jonathon, or Shawn are surprisingly accessible.
