Question about NAD Audio Players & Recorders
Does this unit have a bulb backlighting the display? If so, how do I replace it?
Yes it does have backlamps.
They are soldered to the PCB so you will need a few tools like a soldering iron, philips screwdrivers, solder, and some replacement lamps. Replace the lamps with this type from Farnell electronics. They have a 15000 hr life expectancy and last alot longer in the unit. I have tried many types of lamps over the years, and found these are the best choice if you want them to last.
FOR YOUR SAFETY-BE SURE TO DISCONNECT FROM THE MAINS BEFORE REMOVING THE LID
To get access to the lamps, you need to pull the main PCB out of the chassis to then get access to the bottom side of the printed circuit board where the 2 screws that retain the white lamp reflector assembly. Change both lamps with the type I mentioned,
Be careful not to flex the LCD display that is now exposed, it is quite fragile with the support of the lamp reflector cover no longer in place. ... reverse procedure to reassemble and away you go.
I am more than happy to talk about this solution with you further. Just ask away. Cheers
