I got a new speedo from the dealer...in the months it took to do so I fixed my own. The powder comes from the the printed plastic breaking loose of a mounting pin and then chaffing on the lcd. My fix was crude but worked well. I simple took it apart, carefully popped the speedo needle off and cut the plastic window out of the printed piece (the plastic window that sits above the LCD panel). Cleaned all the powdered plastic out and reassembled...put some silicon sealer on the missing pin. It wasn't a perfect fix but it stopped the vibration and the display was readable again.
