Question about Pioneer DEH-245 CD Changer

DEH 245 Lights

I bought a car that came with a Pioneer DEH 245 Cd receiver.  Everything worked fine until last week, when the backlighting on the display went out.  Now we can only see the time/station display when there is light shining onto the radio.  Is there a bulb that needs to be changed or something?
Thanks for any help!
