Default Yamaha CDX993 - Display problem???

Hi All,

I have been given a working Yamaha CDX993.

The display is a bit dim.

Anyone know of a fix??

Thanks.
Andy

Not specifically. If its a VFD (Vacuum Fluorescent) then caps in the section of the PSU that generate the negative rail of around -30 volt favourites. If its one of those back-lit types beloved of Sharp and the like then probably the display itself is faulty.

Depends as well how dim is dim... worth whipping the front of and making sure the bezel and filter and the display are clean. That can gain you a fair bit.

Good luck nice player.

Excellent... enjoy.
