    Hi All,

    I have a scansonic internet radio that I was given from a friend it all works after making some minor repairs. The reason my friend gave it to me was that the screen no longer worked. I opened it up and replaced a number of caps that were not looking healthy but upon inspection it looks like the screen connection fried, there was a bit of oxidization around the cabled pins and a number of good crispy marks. I cleaned it up in the hope that perhaps it was just residue. This had some success whereby if you left the machine running long enough for these connections to get hot, it would eventually lightly show some display albeit with a few scan lines through it.

    I decided to remove the screen and seek out a replacement screen once i had it out I took a closer look under a magnifying glass and it looks like the solder for the pins was not very healthy. I lightly put some pressure on it and they were infact broken.

    Now here is the crux of my issue. I was hoping to find a ready to go replacement. My wife has expressly banned me from any real tinker time of putting together any new circuits and infact all my stuff bar the basics are locked up in a box in a storage facility all the way back home on the other side of the world.

    The screen itself doesn't appear to be too hard to get hold of, its just a 2.4 inch blue text OLED. The driver board is a bit harder. I am located in the Netherlands and wondering if anyone can point me toward a ready to go replacement?

    This looks like the screen http://www.panelook.com/RGS24128064WW001_RiTdisplay_2.4_OLED_overview_23080.html sans the driver board.

    I have also attached some pics of the board!

    Some of the part numbers on the board are

    Screen Driver Cable: Solomon Systech: SSD1303T10
    The Driver Board: P01215703002100A

    Help would be greatly appreciated
