1st time here in the forum … had lots of trouble getting in here for some reason.
I have this old vintage keyboard made by Emu systems … it’s a Proteus MSD or MDS. I found the LCD display backlight is shot. So took it apart to get at the backlight and found these LED’s that recognized right away as I had bought a few years ago at a local Chinese owned electronics shop in Vancouver BC … Lee’s Electronics. I called them up and they no longer carry it and the manager couldn’t even say what it was or where they sourced from … no doubt it was China but I have SCOURED the net and found ONLY 1 image of one from a company in the UK. I emailed them to see if they could identify it and they have not replied. I just realized it looks like I cannot post an image of it here.
Guess U can post images so here it is …
Basically I need to know a series number etc or a package ID … what did they call this package ?
Or anyone know who manufactured it in Asia somewhere … If I can’t find a replacement … I figured out a McGuiver to rebuild it but I’m even having trouble sourcing a 1608 or 1205 package that will be bright enough and with the right dimensions to fit into the old slot this one came out of.
Any help much appreciated …
Quick addendum about the McGuiver fix … I plan on soldering at least 3 small smd (1608 or 1204 pkg) or something close to 3mm x 2mm x 1mm … chain them together and then attach leads to attach thru hole to the display board. Having trouble finding anything at digikey that has any brightness above 250mcd with the right dims.
