Just followed up on your message and bought a replacement - very quick delivery - easy to fit and works! Many thanks for your post.I am afraid that all OLED displays fade and expire in time. Like light bulbs.
Finally I found an Italian company with some stock:
First Components www.first-components.com Cost is 25 Eur plus shipping, around 14eur. I have ordered and am waiting for it to arrive right now.
As I found, it is very easy to fit, but if you don't feel technically competent I am sure that any repair shop will fit it for a small cost. Certainly better than throwing away, what is a very expensive radio.
I took a bit of a gamble and compared the dismantled part with the online specifications of the part Soulman61 recommended. I could not find any visible part numbers on the broken display so just ordered thinking the gamble would be the cost of P&P.Is the part quoted above compatable with an Pure Avainti Flow? If unknown, how did you find the part number of the part required for your evoke flow please.
thanks in advance.
As I no longer have my dead Avanti flow, I can only say you have to remove the back. 4-6 screws if memory serves me right. Perhaps Normske can help you, having recently done this.Does anyone know how to go about changing the OLED display in an Avanti Flow?
I have been successful in obtaining the part from the nice Italian on eBay but I can't see any obvious way of accessing the OLED panel - everything seems sealed (and Pure Support is useless...(!))
Glad to hear it. The last one really lasted 9 years? To extend the life it's a good idea to set the display to 'off' when the radio is not on.My Pure Evoke Flow display has also gone so dim it can no longer be seen. I followed the advice above and purchased part number WEX012864DLPP3N00000 from First Components, which with tax and shipping was Euro 55.51. The part arrived well packaged in four days. The fitting of the new part was very simple - remove the six screws in the back of the radio, no need to remove any of the cables if you are careful except the old display cable. Remove plastic housing around display, replace old display with new display, carefully make sure the new display cable is well into its socket. Quick test to see it was all working, then replace the screws. A quick 10 minute job for a novice like me. The new display now looks very bright and hopefully good for another 9 years.
Flenser do you have the name of the seller on ebay? Trying to source one myself and don't want to order the incorrect item! TIAI bought a yellow display from eBay a couple of weeks ago and following the instructions available online replaced my invisible display with no issues. Works a treat now.
Thank you all who posted advice and links
This is the one I bought (fingers crossed the link is okay):Flenser do you have the name of the seller on ebay? Trying to source one myself and don't want to order the incorrect item! TIA
