    If you have the zebra stripes on you Yaesu 857 Control head and would like a crystal clear display again this would solve that problem. I disassemble the head completely. I install all new electronics (control board with new LCD) from Yaesu. This repair will also fix a defective head. US. $240 + $10SH exchange. I accept PayPal, check, or MO.

    I think what you describe what my screen has after pulling it from storage...can you also replace broken knobs? My 857D had a loose volume knob (but good screen display) when I bought it used. After storing it for a couple of years during a move and , I pulled it out of the box and found that the retaining tabs on the end of the knob had completely broken and it will not stay in nor work correctly.
