Hi Jeremy,

I second Sonny's view. Just use it man! Turn it on and enjoy the
illumination (and hum)!

See Franks site:

Which shows a link to Backlight4you.. They are still selling
replacements and I have had one of these fitted on my MP2000 and can
vouch for it.

Backlights are also available from members of the list, ebay,
knowledgenavigator and sometimes JandK sales.
Furthermore several people on the list are technically capable of doing
the fitting for a modest fee.

For the good of Newtonhood, liberate yourself from this chastity and
turn the blighter on on whenever you like!!

All the best.
