    Could you email me the installation instructions for your Pro III Kit so I might decide if this is something that I might undertake? My QRZ email address is good. I would greatly appreciate this.

    Stuart I sent you some pics of the installation process. I hope this helps. My time consuming (AKA patience requiring) part of the process is putting the LCD diffuser assembly back together.

    Would someone be kind enough to email me the instructions or pictures to determine the level of DIY. My Radio is a IC-746.
    My email is
    good on QRZ. N1KK
    Thanks

    Hello All:

    Several months ago my Pro 3’s display died and I was lucky enough to be directed to Max’s address.

    He rescued me and the display is now the. Rightest and clearest I can recall ever seeing since new.

    I strongly endorse the upgrade / repair.

    Hi all,

    LED Backlight kits are now back in stock. The kit includes a 2mm wide LED strip, driver board and full color step by step installation instructions.

    The kit is now $50 USD, which includes tracked mailing in Canada or the continental US. For outside North America, AK or HI, please contact me for mailing rates.

    More info on link for customer reviews can be found on my QRZ profile page.

    Note, the kit should also work on the 746/746PRO, but I have no installation guide for these models.

    Thank you,
    Max
