Default Garmin 178C - overheating and screen fading

i have this combo unit in my electronics box so it doesn't get direct sunlight. Has been heating up recently and after several hours of use the screen is fading out.
I've acutally taken an ice cube and rubbed on the screen to cool it off and the screen does come back some.

Any ideas what might be causing this?
