Sounds like if you want your backlight back your best bet is to find a
130 on ebay they usually sell for less or around the repair
quote,consider that even if you find a dead one with good backlight
unless you do it yourself
you are going to pay someone to do it and that adds to the final cost..
the advantage of not having the backlight is longer battery life :-)
