Blue backlight is dead on FS-4

The blue backlight on my FS-4 no longer works.

FireStore charges $245 to fix this - they charge $245 to fix anything, so there is no way to determine if this is a major repair issue or a minor one.

It is an annoyance to not be able to read the display in dark situations, but I can put up with it.

Has anyone fixed it or heard of anyone fixing it without having to send it in?

I have a DRHD100 with a cracked LCD. Works fine otherwise. It was the unfortunate victim of a backwards camera move. It's out of warranty.

I have taken it apart and the LCD panel comes out easily, but I have no idea where to get a new one. Any ideas for finding these parts? I would assume it's not a $250 part.

The LCD part is labeled M534-LOA or L0A it is approximately 70mm X 50mm
Can't find this # on Mouser, still looking

Very close to this display for $19
763-12864CZ-FSW-GBW
Mouser Part #: 763-12864CZ-FSW-GBW
Manufacturer Part #: NHD-LGC-12864CZ-FSW-GBW
Manufacturer: Newhaven Display
Description: Chip on Glass- Graphics 128 x 64 STN-GRAY 71.3 x 54.9 x 5.9

Not sure if anyone has any more info like voltage or interface type. That might help narrow it down. Also, this one doesn't say it uses a blue type crystal.

More info on this part

I removed the damaged LCD and both the serial connector and power for the backlight have easily removable connectors. On the cable of the LCD are these part numbers:

56219201T802
LDC75T534FDG

28 pin serial cable

So far no luck in tracking the right part down on line.
