So, after a short trip to the shops, i started the car to find that my Audio/Nav Screen is blank with a load of lines...
given the it had the Dealer service & MOT 3 weeks ago. (along with the fuse recall) i am not best pleased.

Has anyone had the same issue? and is my screen (and reversing camera) gone for good?
I've checked the manual and the units only appear to be warrantied for 60K or 3 years...I'll contact KIA tomorrow to get a quote a least...

There is a small pin hole on the dash near the rotary Volume/On Off button, gently push something in like a pen or pencil (I use a paper clip which I've opened up).

Thanks, i'll try it now! (Edit) OK tried that, you can see the colours change, but the screen isn't displaying correctly, neither is the reversing camera, looks like its properly dead.
Was worth a try. Looks like it is back to the dealer I'm afraid, although be aware I think the warranty on the media system is not part of the cars seven years.

Thanks, yeah i'll call them tomorrow, and the Nav/Unit is only 3 years warranty...(looking at other posts from other models someone was quoted something like £3800 for a new unit and that was 3 years ago!)

Someone did make a post about just getting the screen replaced from a 3rd party that solved their problem, which was like yours.

Sadly can't find the link.

No idea on this co, or if it anywhere near you.

Thanks, although they aren't local. i've previously used a local company to retrofitted a MFSW to my old passat and was really happy with the service, so i'll try there if the dealer is of no help. It's just sad that i would probably void the remaining warranty..

Theres a few on ebay, taken out of salvage cars most likely. Around £200, not sure what they're like for fitting or if they'd be a straight swap? My worst nightmare is that packing in.

You won't, for example, void the warranty on the engine and gearbox etc, and the warranty on the head unit has expired anyway

so my screen official died today...i've still got the Radio and reversing sensors..havnt tried ApplePlay or changing the A/C yet!
so I guess the next question is, has anyone replaced the unit themselves? how easy is it to get out?
On the plus side i have a year till the next MOT & Service to get in done.

I've changed plenty of car stereos. But I'd have no idea about how to get this one out. It's usually quite obvious how they come out but mines so flush to the dash I've no idea. Maybe youtube it?

Just spotted this on ebay. Seems like the cheapest on there at £135, obviously make sure its the same as your own.

Thanks Yan,
I also found that video, and looks quite simple. I've seen other threads that have said about possible can-bus/pairing issues with the ECU with second hand units, so still undecided if i should try my local dealer for a good will exchange, or give it a go myself. (i've got time to thing about it) but annoyingly i the main screen is the only place that displays the time, and A/C temperature.

I've checled a few of the ebay listings, but it doesn't look like it would have the apple/play bluetooth connectivity (and mine as "bluetooth" written on the top right of the unit....)
i think most of them retail for about £200, so its not a huge price to pay considering this has been my usual MOT repair costs for the last few years!

Yeah. Maybe an aftermarket unit instead? But to get a decent one you're talking the same money. I'm sure someone posted a place that repairs the screens too? Maybe worth a look

decided to take a look at getting my old unit out today, and thanks to the video it's surprising simple...(they didn't show a screw behind the passenger airbag switch, but you can see the hole at 53sec) after that the lower facia,and air vents are easy-peasy.
Now my question is, can i plug and play to the larger screen F1610, as i have the smaller F1510?
Also as Paul mentioned above, as all are from breakers how do i know if they have active codes? (both these show the menu's operating as expected)
