    I've got a sony hr-mp5 audio effects processor, the display has the
    usual problem in that it's gone dim and it's hard to read the letters.
    Does anyone know a good place to get a new display for the mp5 and at a
    reasonable price? Sony themselves weren't much help, thay referred me to
    a company asking just under £200 for a replacement display which is
    outrageous. There must be a a supplier who can do it cheaper. I'm in the
    UK, thanks for any advice.

    I wasn't asking for advice on how to dismantle it, I've already opened
    the unit and dismantled it down to the light panel. That was easy. It's
    a SUPPLIER of a light panel that I was hoping to get advice on. There is
    no way in this world a new panel would cost nearly £200, it's a thin
    piece of plastic with a couple of terminals on one side.

    You can get the sheet material from a few places, or maybe the inverter
    is kaput.
     
  4. Manufacturers think that their parts departments ought to be profit centers
    and charge outrageous prices. (I'll tell you a story about this another
    time.)

    I came in late on this, but if the display is an LCD, and can be unscrewed
    from the board, you might find that removing it and cleaning the board
    contacts restores the display.

    If not, sorry not to be more helpful.

    thanks for that lead but it says:
    'These Techknowman LCDs are out of stock. We do not have a date when
    more will be available.'
    also, the Techknowman link on the page is dead.

    Well, I've no idea how big your square of EL material is :-(

    In these forums, hand out more information and folks helping can be more
    specific. :)

    Have a look at Rapid Electronics, CPC, Farnell, eBay...
