Hello, I've also had exactly the same fault. Seems to be power to the screen, but only the heat screen button works. Seems to be no "feed" to the dvd drive either. Surely this is more than just a fault this is a design flaw which Nissan are guilty of overlooking? Close to negligence to build a car to last 150k miles and a console that would last 50k miles!!! smurph106 at hotmail com if you have an answer please.

Nissan garage say 4k for a new console.

The fault is on a small circuit board within the satnav unit, a loose transister is pulled away by the fixing glue in cold weather. To test this, heat the unit with a hairdryer while evrything is on the unit should fire briefly into life afetr 4-5 mins. A fix is explained on the Nissan Primera owners club forum

Hi Tony,
Have been reading comments on 'How To Mend It.'
Also my 52' sve flat screen display would intermittently fail to light up; though now it's permenantly blank, except when the lights are switched on, and then it glows, (can operate rear screen though!). Also the dvd fails to eject disc.....
Nissan agent over the phone thought it was the cpu and said a new one was 5000pounds, gulp; though they might be able to use a recon' at 2/3000pounds. shysters!
My local garage took the skuttle apart, checked for dry joints, hooked up their computer and was adament it was the Ecu, these can be sent to a company in Portsmouth, (could also use the BBA network!) who within three hours will check and replace the electronics for a set fee of 120pounds, using the existing unit reduces risk of inbuild coding conflicting with othe car electronics. Whose is ripping off who I ask?
However, taking the Primera to Nissan, they diagnosed the dvd as faulty, to affirm this they linked one up from one of their own, which proved the Ecu was AOk. Cost of a reconditioned replacement 700pounds!! Takes less than a hour to fit.
So, how much can you buy a new good dvd player for?
I'm currently mulling this over, trying to find where one can get a replacement dvd player, would you know?
For info, my local garage would charge 75pounds to fit either a Ecu or dvd unit.
Where have you got to with you car? and does the above seem similar? Whats the latest with getting Nissan to admit a manufacturing fault?
All the best, Ray

every one with problems regarding there satnav etc don't sit back and spend your own money if nissan well know about it.there saving a fortune by people not getting in touch with them. let me know how you all get on as i also have a Nissan but up to now fault free.i have a 2.2 primera sve on email is luck

if the same thing is happening to different people then its a Nissan fault.i would try and get as many people with the same problem to come forward and get in touch with Nissan.they have to fix it by law.Nissan know in advance of future problems but by the time the problem arises your car is out of brother once worked for vauxhall so i know this just with the t spec model or other models as well.
