I have a raytheon path finder radar. It was installed new, 7 years ago. just recently i have noticed a dark ring, dead center of the screen that extends out about 1 1/2inches. Ofcourse this makes reading the radar almost impossible. Any ideas what may have caused this and if there is a fix for it?
Thanks in advance

I'd say it is time for a new screen if not a new unit. The electronic circuitry inside the unit does not control each and every pixel of the screen....that would require each pixel to have it's own circuitry. Monitor screens as a whole are governed by one circuit, therefore if the center of you screen is going black, then IMO it is shot and time for a new one.
