If you own an FTdx5000, you may or maynot be aware that there is a flaw in the OLED sub-displays that cause them to fail prematurely.

Some have failed within warranty, but others made it beyond the warranty period.  If you are unfortunate enough to have it fail after the warranty expires, be ready to fork out two way shipping and a $250 repair bill, or if you are capable pay for $50 per display and do it yourself.

Yaesu has not addressed this issue. To force the position of the owners, an online petition has been created. Please sign it regardless if you have had the failure or not. Lets get the word out!

Estimated two hour repair time but at least you save on shipping.
