Earlier this week my instrument display started looking like this.

Probably a connection gave up on the display ir display driver. I can live with it no problem, I was just wondering if anyone else have experienced this, and of so if it just stayed that way or got worse with time (spreading to more lines)?

Different product but similar panel design. On monitors, laptops, and tablets I have seen get a line or two it will gradually get worse as the panel wears out. I work in IT and see it often. Manufacturers love to say led's last forever etc. Well they last longer than fluorescent or incandescent but the circuits do not and fail typically due to heat well before the actual led goes bad. Most lcd and led panels I see start failing around 8 to 10 years.

jcool is dead on and what you have is a void. Early LCD's were prone to infancy issues like this and yes, it will continue, unfortunately. It could very well take a long time, but it's likely going to expand at some point.
