So my conclusion is it is surely caused by (something on) the main board. But no idea what.
BTW: Card reader is still to be tested and adjusted (gum wheel is already repaired) as soon as I have time and patience to do.

It would appear to be a ROM 0 problem as that is where the LED data is generated from so could be an internal chip issue. Maybe a noisy power supply, although I would suspect the display would get worse as more LEDs are lit up.

An oscilloscope would be the best way to track the problem down.
