Maliview screen dim


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a 2012 wakesetter vlx. I don’t tow it far to our lake but yesterday towed it for a few hours. When I turned it on the main screen wasn’t working at all but after further looking it’s very faint. It was also flickering but since unplugging it that has stopped.  

Has anyone had the same problem and is there a fix please?

Lots of problems with the lower right MTC, don't think the Maliview main gives as much trouble. That doesn't help you though. I have a spare MTC just waiting till mine fails.

My main screen has gone nuts a few times this year.  Unplugging and re plugging the e rca cable has fixed it so far. 

Oldjeep,  had the same problem as you last year, the rca plugs get oxidization on them, a simple twist and turn fixed that up, of course after my Hart Stoppd FIRST !  when the screen whent wonky. Fist thinking that came to mind! $$$$$$  How Much! Replacing the MTC was costly, can't imagine Maliview! I'm going to replace the cables with some gold ended rca cable.

Hi, sorry to be so late. But we had this issue for a few years. We were able to solve it by taking it to a small electronic repair shop. The LED backlight strings seem to go on these. The buttons all worked but we could not see what they were doing. We took ours to Ducktoes Calgary. But I suspect any electronic repair shop worth their weight in geldings could do it for you. Good luck! We were jumping up and down to fix it as a new one is like $4500 Canadian now and we paid $300 to repair it.

Hi, what exactly was your unit doing? The back light to the screen went dim? My unit is dimming and just went out. Not sure if it has to do with the rca plug in the rear or the led backlight strings you mentioned.

Hey. So a few years ago the screen begin to dim. We struggled to read it, and it progressed worse and worse over the course of a year or so. Had to turn the boat so the sunlight hit the screen to be able to read it. Then one day, it was completely black and never returned to light. We had thought it was crapped out and required replacement. Which is terrible cuz these units are extremely expensive. We got the maliview USB updates from the dealer but still no fix. One day I stumbled on this forum regarding my exact issue and similar symptoms. So I sent it in to Ducktoes in Calgary, and they ordered a new LED light string and installed and tested it. I haven’t got it back from them yet, as I am unwilling to ship it due to its price and value it’s worth now is insane. But they tested it and said it works like new now!
