    There are many videos showing how to add an LED backlight to a DX7 but nothing on the DX8. The part number for the Spektrum DX8 LCD with backlight is only available in the UK and Germany with restrictions to seanding it to the USA. Anyone know of attempts to alter the DX8 to accept the LED fix?

    Have you went into the menu and verified the backlight is turned on and the brightness is turned up?

    I had to check. Unfortunately unless you are lucky and find someone parting out a DX8 on ebay, you are unlikely to find one here in the USA. Horizon requires you to send your Tx in to them and let them replace the parts. I have requested something as simple as a two position switch and they wanted me to send it in for them to do it.
