A client gave me a CZ101 with a dead LCD to work on. I replaced the former with a new backlit LCD from Sparkfun. They're cheap and come in a few different colors and being able to see the screen in the dark is totally key. The mod is super easy, just one note - the pads for the backlight power just need to be connected to the LCD power, and the rest of the wires go in the same order as the old display but the pads themselves will be on the other side of the board - i wired mine upside down at first. Get in touch if you want help doing this mod, or would like me to do it for you!
