The display doesn't light up. I have no idea the time or the station that is on. Is it possible to put a new "bulb" in?

The bulb behind the screen is burnt out. I also have that stereo and did some poking around inside. I opened up the display casing and found a bulb which looked like a fuse at first, but was really a bulb. I have done some looking around but have not been able to find a replacement. Anyone who has info on the bulb please give feedback.

Its simple dear. the bulb is a 12v pilot bulb and you can modified it by soldering it directly on the circuit board found behind the screen. i have done this several times and it works perfectly. so thumb up, thanks.

Hi Desmondia,

Sorry but the bulb replacement is not a simple as it used to be....The screens on modern sound systems are made up of small crystals that glow when activated by electrical current of very small strength..
These are called LCD Liquid Crystal Displays, or could be very small chips like Light Emitting diodes arranged in an alphabet configuration. I dont know which one your particular amplifyer system has,,,
These dispalys are controlled by a fast scanning oscillator which up dates the screen dispay so fast that the screen display shows the information you need to see.
In fact the screen information is going on and off so fast you dont even know its happening .

Anyway to keep this story short the screen display in your case
appears to have stopped scanning..Its a major repair job...
needs to go to a reapair shop for a cost quote to fix for you.

Cheers From YUBEUT

Hi I Have a Sony LBT LX5 Hi Fi System, the front display panel does not light-up anymore, but the machine still works.

The display of these type of sets are of vaccum type one, which will have a heater filament inside. Like any other vaccum bulbs, the filaments of these part may get opened; and can be said damaged. It is a glass vaccum unit, can be located just behind the display window, will have to be replaced as a unit. OK.

Prestting the stations

All of the presets I have encountered in the last years were thankfully simple; you manually tuned the station, then simply pressed and held the desired button until the display was stable (not blinking).

Display Backlight failure - Philips MC235

Most likely there is a bad connection either at the display itself or in the power supply. If you are comfortable working with this equipment and can solder, try resoldering the pins for the display itself first.

Keep us posted.

JVC micro system hi fi model UX-DAB11

One possible problem is the display IC of your JVC is damaged already or it is not connected properly due to mishandling. display IC has small pins and therefore have small connectors, even if you trace those connections you may find it hard to solder it, but if you have the right tools you may proceed. To trace the pins of the display IC if it is connected you must use an Ohmmeter. Here is a simple steps: an ohmmeter has two wires that has a pin on both ends, most tester has colored wires the red and black. You must point in contact either pins on the subject points in the circuit and the other pin on the circuits also it must be in contact. If the ohmmeters display gives a reading of 0, then there is connection, otherwise it will give a number that indicates there is resistance which means there is no connection or poor connection on the subject. Repeat this procedure until you find all possible disconnection. NOTE: Do this only on the part on the dispaly IC and the DISPLAY connections.
But the best thing to do about it is to bring it to the service center.
I hope i've provided some form of help to you.
