I have a Raymarine ST6002 autopilot. The display on the control head is partially blank. The only effect is part of the 3 in 300 + degrees is missing. 

It works fine and I can live with display.

However does anyone know if the display will get worse rapidly. It is 10+ years old and done some miles.

Does anyone fix or replace the LCD display.Mr Google is not much help. Raymarine just want to sell me a complete new system [ of course ]

I don't think that question is answerable without knowing why it failed. However, in my experience LCDs tend to fail gracefully via slow degradation rather than catastrophically. If you need a replacement, you can find scads of used 6002 heads on eBay for $300-$400.
