It's not much more difficult to install a replacement backlight than a piece of 
paper.  See http://www.pda-soft.de/2x00backlightreplacement.html  For a 
backlight, you can see Calvin still has a few (search 
http://myapplenewton.blogspot.com/2009/04/newton-memory-101.html).  If you post 
your general location, there might be someone in the area who can give hands on

Hi all, 

My MP2000 is getting a little long in the tooth, the backlight is fairly dim. I 
haven't decided yet whether to purchase a replacement MP or backlight, but in 
the meantime, without the backlight the green screen is a little hard to read in 
many situations. I remember when I owned an original Message Pad, the screen was 
a silver-grey colour. My question is, can the MessagePad be opened up and the 
backdrop to the LCD changed?  Perhaps for a high quality piece of ultra-wite 
paper? This would probably really improve the readability of the screen--or 
would it??
