This happened yesterday morning and today. Only since we've had really thick frosts. This morning it was -4.7oc.

Not too sure what to do, everything works fine just the screen looks buggered. Could be an expensive fix?

That's not overly helpful. Not seen that before.

Hello Jamie,

Not owning an R56, but assuming the radio display is an LCD, it's due to the cold weather.

I showed my dad the pic (he's an engineer) and he said, it's probably due to the freezing of the liquid in the display, and when you turn it on, the heat caused from the circuit isn't powerful enough to warm the display up, so it ends up looking like this.

He said it should go back to normal when it's warm. Not sure if you'd want to test a suggestion he made: gently warming the display with a hairdryer! - maybe putting the car heaters on full blast might be better lol

I had it in my old Dooper. Not as drastic as that, but on cold days when I first used the screen it would have similar effects on it when i scrolled through menus etc. passed after it warmed up though.
