Hi,

I've had my Squeezebox radio for some time:

Player Model: Squeezebox Radio
Player Type: baby
Firmware: 7.7.3-r16676

Every now and then the colours on the display get inverted. Is this just the age of the device and the screen is failing, or is there something that can be done to repair it?

Currently the only fix I know is to turn the device off for some time, when it comes back on sometimes the screen goes back to normal.

Sadly this is a not an uncommon failure point of the Squeezebox Radio, the screen can be replaced but they are hard to find now.

There's a bit more on this in this thread:

I've had 2 screens fail like this, one was replaced under warranty and the other I replaced the screen myself.

Plenty of used SBR's on eBay and prices seem to have dropped a bit recently, Over the last couple of years I have picked up a few spare SBR's from eBay to mitigate against any future failures.

Hey KeBul
Do you know if the screen in the Controller is the same as that in the Radio?
If so might be another source.

Hi,

No, sorry, I do not know, from what specifications I can find they do seem to be similar and possibly the same, but as I said I do not know for certain.

No problem KeBul.
My brothers radio has gone "up the swanny" & I've got an old Controller.
I'll try swapping & report back :-)
