I have lost the backlighting to the LCD. The radio still works,
and when not in direct light, I can barely make out the station
I'm tuned to.
Does anyone know if there is a peanut bulb or some other
replaceable item that I can repair, or am I SOL?
For radios of the 1988 90q ilk, this subject was addressed extensively
last Sep/Oct (+/-). There is a Radio Shack 55mA flying lead bulb as
well as a 60mA bipin bulb that will work. They are tiny 12V bulbs;
not too many choices at Radio Shack to confuse you. Use shrink fit on
the solder connections. Best to cover the bulb with a miniature red
or orange bootie to get the color right (as well as dim enough).
There may be one already there.
