So backlight repair completed !!, used the one from the above post, cost me a fiver so well chuffed.
Actual job wasn't too difficult other than having suffered a stroke 5 years ago my left arm doesn't work so bought one of those holding things with a magnifying glass to do some of the soldering.
Screws are small so used a magnetic attachment to hold them and Bob was my uncle, got the job done in around an hour.
Result:- backlight working !!, went for the ice blue color.
Now to get my antenna on the gable end, local aerial company coming tomorrow to fit it, only charging me £40 so hoping to be up and scanning in the evening.
BTW, used this site for the instructions on how to renew the EL.http://www.2manytoyz.com/newel
