This almost always is caused by an internal failure of the display head, meaning that the display needs to be replaced. You can replace it yourself, if you're reasonably mechanically able, but there are no user serviceable parts inside this display. My recommendation is to order a replacement from your dealer, and ideally have them replace it/program it with the latest software.

Please take the time to rate my answers, that's how I get compensated. If you have further questions, I am happy to follow up with you.
