Sunfire TGP 5 display issue

Hey guys,

I have a Sunfire TGP 5 that I purchased new a few years ago. It has been great with no issues.

The display is very dim for some reason, and I thought someone here may have ideas of how to fix the issue??

The dimmer works and I have cycled through all settings with it and on the brightest I still can't see it unless I walk up very close to it.

Is there LED's or something that can be replaced fairly easy??

Thanks for ideas.

    Sounds like it would be a simple fix but if not, the boys over here will steer you in the right direction. They are always modding/repairing gear.

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    Pretty sure I had signed up there before but couldn't remember login info/

    Hopefully someone will know how to address this issue.
