The DM15L is back with a new screen. It came with glitches, but after few hours in the oven it is perfect....

I've mailed support@swissmicros.com about the issue, I'll see when they respond.
Well I have not seen any response yet. I know this is a 1-man company but this is taking very long.

In the meaantime another row has stopped functioning. Is there anything I can do myself? How difficult is it to replace the LCD myself?

Ah good, they replied quickly now and have sent a new LCD. Unfortunately that would take some time to arrive but that's nothing anyone can help.

I got a mail from the postal service that I had to pay €11.66 import fees. For just an LCD? :o

I got the replacement LCD and have installed it. All rows work again. However, there is some foam on the back of the old LCD that is glued to it that I can't remove without completely destroying it. I have now as a temporary solution folded toilet paper behind the LCD to keep it in place and that works, but does anyone know the specs of the original foam? I want to order it but I can't seem to find it. And what glue is used?
