Question '02 C230 Digital display dims at top, bottom.

Hello All,

I have a 2002 C230 Sport Coupe with a strange problem: After running for a while (20 minutes or so), the top and bottom lines of the digital display in the instrument cluster begin to grow dim. For example, while monitoring the trip info, the "After Start" and the temp and time lines will gradually fade until practically unreadable. The center portion ( elapsed time, miles, mpg, etc.) remains lit. This happens in all ambient light conditions - day or night. I also noticed that when this happens and a turn signal is activated, the display seems to "pulse" ever so slightly...Any ideas?

Thank You,

Mine Too...

Mine just started doing this last week.
I notice that if I leave my car out on a hot day it happens much faster.
I suspect I will have to replace the display to correct this if thats even possible.
