    Can I clarify what exactly is meant by flickering?

    If I look at mine carefully I can see the brightness changing a little. Like it constantly fluctuates maybe by 5-10% brightness. Not much. It’s not something I would have noticed if I had not read about the problem of failing lcds.

    It’s been like that for 3 years since I got the car and has never got any worse. It’s never gone out as far as I know although I have panicked a few times when the sun is at a funny low angle and the car thinks it’s night and switched to the black display (which is completely unreadable in light conditions)

    Flickering is what Paul wrote : "It’s the whole lcd screen display that flickers and then goes dark, before coming back on again." which is not your case. At first it is micro seconds black screen, then few seconds, then few minutes, then no more !

    Mine did that and if I recall, Ferrari had a campaign or update for it. I'll have to go back and check. But you might call the dealer and see if there was a fix for this issue, mine happened back in 2013 and dealer fixed quickly.

    I am not sure in 2020 there is any dealer with a fix for an issue and fixed quickly ! All dealers give a quote of 6 to 9000 € for that problem ! They do not fix anything, they dismantle, send tft back to the factory and reassemble after long period.

    So it seems, but I get the impression that the replacement components may be of a higher quality. mike
