Hi I have a marantz PD660 and it has worked flawlessly until the other day. The LCD panel can be barely read and almost renders the recorder unusable. What has gone wrong. please don't anyone suggest the batteries or power as the same happens when connected to the mains supply. The backlight works fine but not the actual display.
Hope someone can shed some light on it no pun intended.

There is actually light bulbs behind the display. And they are burned out. Usually these bulbs are soldered to a circuit board, that is behind the display. This is not the backlight, it's different.
To add to sound's reply, they are very easy to replace. You can pick up the bulbs at radio shack.
