Angry Dash display failure

Recently I presented this problem to this forum. Problem remains unresolved.
I am the first owner of a 2014 V8V which now has 500 miles.
About 6 weeks ago the display area in the tach and speedo gauges went blank.
The analog speedo and tach work fine. No outside temp, odometer, etc.
Any ideas before I ship it to Miller Motorcars?
Much thanks

Did you just buy your V8V as a left over or something? If not how is it you have just 500 miles?

Hi Deckman,
I purchased the car from the Aston Group in DC on May 30, 2015. It was a 2014 left over with 47 miles. It had been stored indoors or under a large tent and was absolutely perfect. Volcano Red with Obsidian interior, fine stitching and manual trans.
They delivered it in an enclosed single trailer.
I have a number of cars and generally put few miles on any of them.

Should still be under warranty, so hopefully they cover it and transportation if required.

It is a coupe
Miller Aston plan to pick it up on Sat and trailer it to their facility.
Will also have my first oil and brake/clutch fluid change.
Will be interesting to see what caused the center display to fail.

It might just be a bulb that burnt out. Speaking of bulbs, has anyone tried replacing the bulb on the digital display with brighter ones? I have a V8V Roadster and can't read the digital display when I have the top down during the day!
