    Anyone else experience this? Jittering and dancing screen static vertical bars. I saw it one morning getting into the car. Fortunately it went away after a double scroll wheel reboot.

Prior to the reboot, I photograph it to get a time stamp. I also create an “Event” by activating the voice command and say, “ Bug report”. Call Tesla. They will want to replace a module or something. I haven’t had the module replaced yet, but will shortly.

    Wow, this looks quite bad. Faulty component obviously, like they said.

    I've seen similar issues to this with laptops. Could be a loose video cable connection.

    Yeah, my bet is on the connection to because I have a laptop with a screen that does the same thing.

    Thanks for the confirmation. I’ll have to give Tesla a call. I doubt it’s a loose cable since a reboot fixes it.

    I've seen that kind of thing when overclocking a PC GPU or Memory too much

    Can everyone who has this issue post what FW version they're on? Hopefully it's not one specific FW version causing this.

    Hopefully this isn't the "something special" promised to first-day reservation people.

    I had this issue and brought it up at my service appointment yesterday (keycard not working). Was told they are now ordering a "module" for me and there was recently a service bulletin released. So, sounds like it is a know issue and takes more that a software update to fix.

    Had the issue on the firmware right before 2018.10.5 (can’t remember exactly). We just updated so I’ll report back if I see any more static on the new firmware.

    I’ve had the same problem once before when the interior was hot. It went away after a reboot.

    I had this happen today. Not sure if it matters or is helpful, but I updated to 2018.12.1 today. It happened a few hours later.

    ^^ More Detail: I did the bug report voice command. Scroll wheels reboot cleared it up.

    What has service done for anyone?

    Same thing happened to me twice, once on 2018.10.5 and once on 2018.12.1. Cleared with reboot both times. I wasn’t concerned as it resolved with reboot, but after reading this thread I’ll take a picture and call service if it happens again.
