We have a DGN file that we want displayed with custom colors and linestyles in Microstation. When we open the file in Microstation v8i Select Series 3, and specify the custom .rsc file containing the custom line symbols, the lines draw with the correct colors and line symbols. When the same process is following in Microstation v8i Select Series 4, the lines are drawn with random, default symbols instead of the correct symbols. We would like to know if anyone else has run into the same issue.
I can't say I have nor recall anyone else posting the same issue. Have you got some images of the SS3 appearance and the SS4 version. Can you post the RSC file?
Do the line styles contain text characters? If so, I believe the line styles were created without dropping the text characters to regular elements (lines, line strings) before creating them. If you do not have the font available in SS4 workspace then the text characters will show as random symbols.

It is recommended to drop text symbols to graphics elements to avoid such issues in future. Only drawback would be conversion to DWG that then those lines will create a SHX files.
I agree with mwlong it's probably cased by missing definition of fonts (symbols).
I recommend to ensure V8i SS4 have the same rsc files, not line styles only, but fonts also.
