I have a Pioneer KEXM8076ZT, P1708 (Mobile Electronics: Radio/Cassette  
Player) with a bad LCD (ghosting segments).

I found a couple of relevant parts...

1) Pioneer CWM4931 - LCD with PCB
2) Pioneer CAW1385 - LCD only

Even better, someone posted a YT video fixing LCD ghosting segments just  
by cleaning the contacts on his Fluke 85 Multimeter...

How to bring LCD Ghost Segments back from the Dead...

Not sure whether I can clean the contacts on my Pioneer radio.
Anyone know what type of connector is used for the LCD and PCB ?
Is the connector standard or proprietary ?

I have photos but not sure how best to upload.

Thanks in advance for any help.

There is no uploading here, you have to have some image hosting. there are  
a bunch of free ones, and I know none of them are perfect, that's why I don
't have one. I used to have Dropbox but when they told me I had to update m
y OS I told them to go pound salt.  

Most of those LCDs are connected by a zebra strip. It is not supposed to ev
er go bad. I would see about a replacement before even taking it apart.  

I would like to assume that if you order the LCD with the PCB you get one b
ut never assume anything.  

Zebra strips are only partly standardized, and to cut them you need extreme
 accuracy.  

You might want to see if you could maybe squeeze the whole mess together, m
ight work might not.
