You can try to check connections, and measure voltages, or check which
signals goes from display driver. Maybe problem is there.
It would be probably difficult to find this old VF display, and it's a
question if there's a modern substitution, I tried to find something
but it's quite different from two main standards used for displays
( HD44780 and compatible for character displays and T6963 and
compatible for graphic displays).
Display model is Noritake Itron FG166A2.
Try to ask here:
Let us know, I'd like to get one also but couldn't find it...
Thanks in advance!
