Cheap UK source for Midipal Screen


#1

Hi all, after many years of faithful service, my Midipal screen has gone blank on me… the 'Pal itself works fine but the screen is completely blank.

In the UK all the ones I have found are about £6 for the part but £12 for shipping, I wondered if anyone has come across anything cheap and compatable here in the UK?

colours etc are not important to me !! oh and its an original SMD version

thanks

The shipping cost is because they tend to ship from the US. It’s a more niche part, most run on 5V.

Is the backlight dead or no characters on the screen? the LED of a backlight can be fixed and you can sometimes reseat the glass to get characters back. It rests on a carbon coated rubber strip to make contact.
