I got an MV8000 for $250 a few months ago. But it came with a busted screen.

Dropped $150 for a replacement screen from MPC stuff.

I got a old 7inch video monitor maybe I'll give it a go if I get bored.

Yes, I saw that on reddit. The people whom already installed it, say its good but cheaply made and some died out in 2 months, others still running fine. One pointed out being made in China, it will not be to Roland standards, but if you really need a screen, it will do.

I have a MV8000 screen with dead backlight. No ugly green glow to light up what i'm seeing.

I either want to rig up a custom backlight (if feasible) or do a mod such as this. I have an external monitor but dont want to have to carry it around.

Other option is to mount a monitor on a swivel ball mount. I saw that mod somewhere but can't find it.
