Recently bought a used L200 Animal Double cab, for general use and to pull horses around in a trailer. It's ideal for this use and everything works fine except the Navigation screen on the information system. It's the early system with separate CD/Radio, Audio amplifier, Navigation system DVD and an infra red remote controller for the sat-nav.
All the information screens work as described in the user manual, except that when the navigation screen is selected I get a blue screen with nothing on it. (Fixed screen - not slide in and out)
The dealer that supplied the car tried to fix the sat-nav but after exchanging the DVD, CD player and the batteries in the remote gave up and we agreed on a simple stand-alone sat nav unit as compensation.
I used to work in IT and system electronics and want to restore the original system but I'm having difficulty getting any support information. The local Mitsubishi dealer is full of scare stories of massive cost and parts unavailability but I suspect that if I knew exactly what to buy I could get it going. It's only a computer, display and a few bits and pieces after all. Can anyone here help?
To get me going: where would I expect to find the remote control receiver and should it be plugged into the DVDROM?- I don't seem to have one.
If I need a replacement does anyone have a spare to sell?
Also, are there any technical manuals for the system (MP8100 model) I have the user manual and the in-dash display user manual but can't find any technical information such as system wiring charts. I've downloaded a Mitsubishi General Manual but it doesn't include details of official aftermarket options. Is it on the workshop manual CD (which I'll be purchasing soon)?
It'll make a nice project to keep me quiet for a while.
