VC890 OLED Display repair

If you have display brightness problems with your expensive handheld multimeter VOLTCRAFT VC890, here is a solution for it!


A few month ago the OLED display of my not often used multimeter (bought ~2015 on was getting darker and darker. Now I can't see anything on the display anymore. After little research I found a forum thread in which the people discuss exactly my problem. But no one has found a compatible display, yet. And the Conrad support has not responded to this day.


So I decided to search for displays on Previously I disassembled my multimeter and removed the display, it's very easy only few screws! After few pages of OLED displays I found a very very similar looking one with same dimensions for 36USD = 31€. So ... let's purchase and wait for it :)


The package arrived after a month. I quickly installed it and ... cool it works :D The display color is now white.
