Display / Greenstar not loading up

Hi Guys,

Bit of an odd one, But last season (2017) I was having the odd problem with the display in the cab of my 2012 W540 combine refusing to load up when first starting up in the morning... Sometimes every day, sometimes once a week, very random but normally just turning the battery isolator off, and back on, would allow it to boot up normally / work perfectly all day... Sometimes you may have to turn it off / on a few times but would always load up ok in the end...

However after going out to fire it up over the winter (Like i start it up / bring it up to temp one a month etc) I have noticed it now dosnt appear to want to load up at all, no matter how many times I cut the power to it / try, just gets to the loading part of the page, starts loading along the progress bar, and just gets stuck / sits there for ever more...

Anyone else seen this problem / any idea where to start? Hoping maybe a bad connection on an ecu or something somewhere im thinking?....

Thanks,

Have you checked the plugs on the back or try switching to another 2600 or 2630 screen to see if it might just be the screen or perhaps that little 1 foot long cable might be bad

There are no plugs on the back of the display, its not a 2630 display... Just the standard (in 2012) non touch screen display....on the W / T series machines (Im in the UK)

I would check the wiring and probably start with the fuse panel pull the fuse for it to see if there is corrosion in the panel or look for any mouse damage i have never seen one of those just quit also behind the seat perhaps pull the plugs apart and check for corrosion or loose connection

Ok will have a look.

Its odd as it was starting to play up last year, but would always work in the end, so does suggest some kind of bad connection to me, but was more thinking it would be something outside the cab with moisture etc..

Take the 3 screws off the back and you can access the wire. Unplug them. Start the machine up with it unplugged then once the machine is running plug it in. This will start a complete reboot and it fixes lots of gremlins on all make displays. It is essentially IT 101 where the computer guy tells you to restart your computer. That's the procedure to try before doing anything else. Hope this helps.

Would that have a different effect to just killing the battery isolator?

It would but with it being intermediate i would think that you have corrosion or a loose wire somewhere because it had that type of problem with a semi on something's on the dash and AC and had to change the whole fuse panel because it was ate up with corrosion along with all the wiring behind the dash
