Film coming off main console screen? 2014 23 LSV

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

We were coming home from Idaho and it rained on the boat a bit (uncovered). Everything dried out nicely after some wipe down. However, when we were wiping the main console window a bit if what looks like film came up. We immediately stopped wiping. We’ve wiped the screen before but never wet or with cleaner. Pics below for reference. It’s on the bottom part though a little hard to make out. I touched it with my nail and it’s definitely some type of film. Is there a safety film that we just never took off? Has something delaminated over the years? Anybody else have this happen?

what are the chances it's a protective film, applied to protect during mfg and install, to be removed by the end user?

If it is, there is likely  a little tab in one corner.  True story - got a new Google Nest Hub and I wondered why the clock was overlain with a GOOGLE logo.  Doh!  Turns out there is a protective film with thta on it and you are supposed to remove the film.

No tab unfortunately. I think I was just hoping that might be the case. The thought of the screen delaminating is a little more troublesome. Thought I would check to see if anyone had encountered something similar.

I have a 2014 VLX and have the same issue. Mine has gotten much worse over the last year where more of the film has flaked off. Mostly on the bottom half of the screen.
