Hi friends. Ive been looking for someone to install a better backlight or EL panel in my E-trac to no avail. Minelab and Kellyco both said no. Anyone here with the expertise to do it?

not sure how it should be, but took mine out tonight and its bright enough for me, I like the F19's red back light doesn't glare my eyes so I can see the coil at night and its more stealth mode also :biggrin:

but like I said crack the control box open & check out the globe size and get a brighter one only suggestion I can offer.

Send it in to Minelab tell them the issue.

The LED inside would need the correct resistor attached to it. You just can't put in a bigger globe (LED).
But they do make low and bright light LED's. The bright LED's will blind you if looked at. Makes for a good self defense tool at night. I know used them on my first Pi as a power on indicator light.
