I'd say a MK1 as I am unaware of any TDA1540 machines with a MK2 assembly.

Hi.
I have a fully working CD74, and a working display from a CD84. Can I simply stick the 84 display into the 74's front panel for it to become (effectively) an 84.
I don't want to chance it in case I blow something.

Also, please do not think me rude, but the CD204 is completely different (layout-wise) from the CD304. It's the 104 and 304 that are the same, save for the remote, thought they do all share the CDM1 (mostly, some are fitted with the CDM0).

Thanks for any help.

I have done it before (swap a CD-84 front panel to a CD-74) in order to be remote controllable. The display mask is somewhat different on the 84 because of the IR sensor. There is also a separate remote control PCB on the 84 front panel. Better to swap the complete front panel assembly, not only the display.

Many thanks.
I have the whole front unit, only the aluminium front is missing. I only kept if for spares, and this seems (now) like a good way to use it.
I'll change the whole lot and see what happens.
Thanks again.
