Mercedes 190E 16v replacement laptimer lcd

Post by marceldeijkers » Sat 08 Jun, 2013 3:47 am

Hello all 190 drivers out there.
i have finaly made a replacement LCD screen which will fix the bleeding dead laptimers/stopwatches from our Mercedes 190 2.3 /2.5 16v cars.

See pictures, sofar i fixed my own once i had, and they all work great!
If people are interested in this i can provide the screens, or i can repair them for you.

Greetings
Marcel

Marcel !!!! You the Man ! I think I've spent the MOST time chasing one of these from all over the world !!!! The VDO repair people are in Heidelberg Melbourne and I called them and would have eventually gone to them, but they didn't sound too promising on the phone -even though I may never use a laptimer - it is like the jewel in the crown for restoration and the hardest part to find !

What I was thinking would be cool is if you could use a led type screen instead of lcd, like the read out screens on industrial machines - so red illuminated letters on black screen - so you can see the timer - in the dark night - and then you could use it and it would look cool !

But apart from that - just getting it fixed is like the biggest thing ever ! PM Sent !!

Hello,
Thanks for your feedback. Iam also happy with the result!
I had an Original one in 1 of our cars... Bought a secondhand unit last year, installed it but after a few months they starts bleeding. So never buy a 2 second hand laptimer which looks oke because the screens all start to bleed and i think they already bleed but out of the view area.

But i sended you a message back with all the information you need, if you want i can try to call you later today, or you can just reply to my email.
I can do the repair, or i can send out a repair pack that you will do it yourself. What works for you.
Hope to hear from you soon.

Greetings

Marcel

You're right. Mine are the other way around too. Maybe different for LHD?

left and right hand may be abit different ofcourse :)
Mine units are in a Euro spec car, and thats how they fit and look.

They all work the same :) but a laptimer is a laptimer ;)

DIY kit costs €75 incl free shipping and install manual and user manual.

When you need more then 2 or 3 i can do something with the price.

Hallo,

Today i fixed a few laptimers for some members here, check it out, they will be send out tomorrow.
So Klaus, Rouven, Christian, & Orda here they are :)

Nice and working again, i toke the pictures with my iphone so the quality of the image is abit bad but you can see they are all working again.
On 1 pictures you see 1 laptimer of Klaus which was only bleeding 2% of the display you could almost not see it, but when you take it out you see it was already bleeding!
Thats why you wont want to buy a 2nd hand unit!!!

This one is from Orda

Those 2 are from Klaus:

Hope you like it also!
