    DW-8050 (1433) backlight not working

    Hi guys,
    I'm trying to resurrect my dead old watch and just replaced the battery after 20 years :P
    Everything works fine after AC reset but i noticed the backlight doesnt light up.

    Is backlight an easy fix?

    I understand that those tiny screws might be the issue (i've not disassembled the module before).
    Also, I'm struggling to find a list of compatible case parts for the watch. Is it possible to fit the module into a small case?

    Thanks

    Did the module move while changing battery? Contact may have moved and not pressing in.

    You'll most likely not find new parts for this watch, they will have been discontinued.

    What parts are you looking for BTW? That model is a great looking old G and if it were me I'd be very happily leaving it as is.
