a single black line is a dead led on the board. its not your ribbon


I have a system that I got the permanent solder fix for about 4 or so years ago (by a skilled member of PVB, not some eBay hack) and it had worked fine but recently now has a single dead line in one display and I had been meaning to ask this too.

So it sounds like that LED board is shot and just needs to be replaced? (i.e. can't be repaired somehow?)


there are ebays hacks lol i delt with them. they just do the heat fix. that why im on ebay too to make sure its done the right way.

unfortunately there is no way to fix a bad led. there just too small.

Hi, my right display was out. I was able to get it working again with a hot iron. However, it still has a single pixel line that is dark, even after several tries.

Looking at this link, it seems that a line in the ribbon cable controls 8 pixels on the display. This would mean that my single bad pixel can't be caused by a ribbon cable problem:

Could it be a defect in the LED? What else might cause this?

Hello all,

some months ago I bought a VB including the Virtual Tap (which was the reason why I bought this VB) and now I tried to install it. Unfortunately I realized that the Virtual Tap itself was already soldered once and my know how and equipment is not sufficient to take the risk to remove the solder and move on with the installation. Due to the fact that I am from Germany, I like to ask if there is someone who is from here and well experienced in that case and could help me here. If you see a chance here, feel free to send me a pm.

For orientation, please see attached a picture how the Virtual Tap looks.

Thanks in advance.


if know one replies i'll be glad to do it for you. im in the usa though.
