    OS 3.0 AC (approx 2 years old)
    the display has gone very “dim” and some areas impossible to read.
    I havent as yet opened unit to attempt to remove display.

    Can someone assist with model/type so i can source a replacement (yes i can solder and understand electronics no problems)
    just need the details on the display model.

    found a post with details on the faulty OLED displays – obviously mine
    fell into this category!

    for completeness to close this post
    The replacement OLED display for OS 3.0 AC appears to be:

    OLED Display 0.96” IIC (I2C) 128×64 resolution, also sometimes referred to as “SSD1306” .
    ( which is actually the I2C driver chip used in the display electronics)

    Yes, the OLED display used for OpenSprinkler is 0.96″ I2C SSD1306. You can find it on many websites, including Aliexpress, on which many vendors sell it for just a couple of dollars with shipping included. Just watch out the pin ordering: it should be GND-VCC-SCL-SDA, which is the most common type. I am, however, aware of a couple of new models which use VCC-GND-SCL-SDA ordering, and that is incompatible. So check out their product pictures before burying.
