Are all top LCDs the same?
Posted By: mcgoo, 01-13-2013, 04:30 PM

Hi, I'm hoping somebody can help.
I have a K7 with a broken top LCD and I'm having a problem getting a new one.
So I'm curious, are all top LCD screens the same, i.e. would one from a DL, K10D or K20D work.
I know the info shown differs from model to model, but can one of these fit the K7?

I doubt that the ones from anything other than a k7 or k5 would fit since the body style changed. They look similar, but changed them when they changed the body style. If you look at the right side of the LCD, the K10/K20 has a basically equal size rectangle for data while the K7/K5 have a larger portion on the top and only a bottom strip. You'd likely get conflicted data points... I'd use it as an excuse to get a K5 and deal without the top lcd...

Thanks, saxplayer.
I guessed that it wasn't possible but was hoping that someone had tried it and had got it to work.
