Sony GV-9E ?

So ..spent the weekend re-capping a poorly GV-9E

It was totally dead ..

replaced several surface mount aluminium capacitors ..on the main board but also in the LCD display ..

Sadly the leaking electrolyte did a fair bit of damage to pads and traces ..

3 wire links were needed.

nonetheless it is now working ..giving a fairly decent output to an external monitor via A/V

but I would like to fully restore this compact video walkman.

..but...it appears the lcd screen although sort of functional is damaged.

the backlight now works ..and there is an image ..sort of...

RGB only ..no luminance ?

ie..no contrast.

Dont suppose anyone has a scrap unit they want to sell for parts ?

worth an ask.
