The led display on my panel has just given up. Does anyone know if it can be replaced without a whole new panel?
Iíve looked on the Hanseís Boatoon site but canít even see the panel.

This panel must be the last thing to replace on your boat? Sorry can'e help with any info.

After a lightning strike in 2012 I had my Calira panel repaired at the factory. This type of panel is no longer manufactured.

Wayne, you are forgetting that the boat should be replaced entirely!

if it is only the LED display, any instrument/electronics repair shop can replace it. Most likely they will use the same model as a replacement.
Unfortunately Calira went bellyup and was bought by Truma, specialist for gas heater systems in camping cars. They stopped making the nautic line.
Good Luck

Thanks Frank Iíll pursue that line & see if I can find someone to replace the display. Iím hoping itís possible to remove the display as disconnecting the whole panel would be a nightmare.

Nigel, disconnecting the panel is not rocket science. I had to do it with my WŁrth panel
You just have to follow a very disciplined procedure after disconnecting all batteries:
a) photographing every detail of the panel
b) marking all cables with tape and a color point
c) color coding all connection points accordingly
Is there a visible marking on the LED display?

I had a WURTH panel go bad on our new boat.   Its supposed to be fused to a fare-thee-well, but it somehow went  bad when they were replacing the batteries over the winter.    Disconcerting.    That said,  the replacement is pretty easy (its a $700 panel on our boat, but it was under warranty) if (as was said) you are disciplined about what wire went in what port on the board. 

The only thing we found was that the tank monitoring connections had changed.  Hanse had adapters for the tank monitor cables and it was a simple matter of connecting those between the panel and the cable.

I have good news for anyone who has had the LCD display on their switch panel fail.

I eventually sourced a German company who have supplied me with a new display screen/circuit board. It is identical to the failed unit and should be a simple installation.

The company is called CaBoTron Elektronic OHG, Lerchenfeldstrasse8, D-87600, Kaufbeuren, Germany.
Tel: +49 8341 9764-0

The part number details are:
Displaymodul CP20 Kraftst. B3 Ersatazeil

The cost with tracked/signed for shipping was 179.69Ä

Iíll post again when installed to confirm that it works!
