The receiver has a burn-in on the display
I would like to buy a used headset, but it had a small burn-in on the display witch is in the reciver. Can it be replaiced?
No, it can’t. I spoke to a dev from Steelseries and they told me that they also have the same issue on their own base station at home. It’s due to the fact it’s an OLED and the brightness was too high for too long and unfortunately it’s not repairable, unless you buy a new one. I hope it’s not too bad that you can continue using it and try to ignore it but…. unfortunately that’s all i was told. Nothing they can do.
Also for the future try turning on screensaver so that it isn’t one static image which may help to avoid burn in.
Display Vision have a set of different OLED screens, can get them from Elfa Distrelec.
In Euro the price for a 128x64 OLED screen is around 58€.
You could in theory replace the display on this, but I'm not sure if you can just get a new display and put it in. Presumably the display is connected to some hardware/firmware combination that expects this particular display.
So unless Steelseries opened up a spare part shop, where you could buy replacement parts, the official answer is; no. However, you can (probably) buy broken base stations to use for spare parts, depending on what's broken of course.
Here is an image of the screen part, which I guess is glued in some plastic frame thing that sits inside the base station enclosure.
Side note! It's not really too bad to take the base station apart to replace parts in it. Just have to slightly lift the glued rubber base in each corner to find the screws, then carefully loosen the clips. Though be careful, this base station is very clearly not meant to be taken apart with ease, so some of the wires are very short and soldered on to the PCBs.
Isn't it possible to track who the maker is of the OLED display itself?
I really don't think Steelseries make them themselfs, most likely a third party who builds them.
If it's possible, I should give it a try myself. I actually have gone so far, so I bought extra batteries and an external charger so I can continue to use them. Was able to repair the "wheel" on the headset (wouldn't respond from time to time).
When I get time (working too much right now), I'll try and see if I can do something about it. It still works, and is the greatest headphones I have ever had - can have Optical (PS4), USB (PC) and Bluetooth, and recieve signals from all 3 at the same time..
Oh, and I really need to make a guide how to remove and clean the wheel for volume on the headset!
