    Hi all,
    I have a Fish-Finder with a 4"
    x 5" approx. LCD screen which has vertical stripes (no image) at
    various points across it.I am not very familiar with this technology,
    I know it has a (square waves?) drive and dedicated ic's for
    display.the housing was gas filled (not anymore).Would these missing
    bands be caused by bad contact 'tween the rubber connecting pads on
    the screen / pcb interface? shame really as the instrument works fine
    other than the display.
    Thank you for reading this.

    Very possible

    It's called a zebra connector

    Try cleaning the zebra and display contacts with alcohal. Do not handle the
    contact areas, they must remain clean.
