Dashboard info display

I have a 1989 100Q with about 56K on it. Recently, at about 52K,
the little information display (you know, the one that shows
your radio frequency) started behaving erratically. Every once
in a while, it displays random garbage - lines, dots, bars.

The dealer says he knows exactly what the problem is, and that
it is not covered under the used car warranty. But, due to the
age of the car, he says that Audi will pick up 80% of the cost,
which is almost $1000!

This leads me to believe that this is a known, widespread problem.
Has anyone else seen this, and how was it resolved? I'm reluctant
to plunk down almost $200 to fix something that works 99% of the
time. But, what is it gets worse?
