Display of a Wavestation EX with a dead backlight
Step 1 Start loosening the screws of the bottom casing cover of the device, except the screws located in the rubber feet.

Step 12 With the flatcable to the left you are watching the small slot for inserting the ELpanel under the glass of the LCD. In the next 2 pictures you see the new EL-panel inserted on top of the old one. NOTICE: The new EL-panel is shown with the wrong rear, not with the luminous side, in the picture below.

Inserting the EL-panel into the LCD(wrong EL side!)
You must look at the luminous side of the EL-sheet. This is the side with the grey, yellow or pink colour)! The old EL-panel must not be removed necessarily, if the new EL-panel can be inserted on top, easily. But the pins of the old EL-panel have to be removed/cut from electric contact with a small pair of nail scissors. Afterwards solder the pins of the new EL-panel to the tips from the inverter. Please be very carefully and solder quickly. Its important to look for a thermal dissipation e.g. with the coin ontop of the pin you actually want to solder or with the needlenosed pliers. Notice: Too much heat can destroy the EL-panel in the contact area!
New EL-panel on top of the old(you can see the pins of the old)
If you can`t insert the new EL-panel on top of the old one, you have to remove the old EL-panel first. Desolder the pins of the old panel and pull out the sheet. If you have problems to pull out the old EL-panel it may be glued. Try carefully with a small, long knife to separate the panel from the glue on its rear side.
Step 13 The reassembly can happen now in the opposite way. After locking the last screw your Wavestation EX can shine now as in the following picture.

A close look onto the display of the Wavestation with a new EL-panel from backlight4you.
Now your display shines bright again!
Another Hint: Annoying whine Cited from Whine Some users have reported that their display emits an "annoying whine". (Be careful not to confuse this with another reported whine that can come from the power supply.) One user reports he stopped this whine by reversing the polarity of the backlight on the LCD:
How to reverse the polarity (thanks to Mike Werning, who wrote:) You don't have to disconnect any circuit boards, just remove the bottom panel on the 01 to get to the insides. The connector is located right next to the main board on the power supply board. It is a 4-pin connector with only the two outside pins populated. I believe its designator is CN16 (01W/fd) on the power supply board. Since the connector is keyed, you cannot simply unplug the connector rotate it 180 degrees and re-plug it in. You must disconnect the connector, pull out the pin receptacles on the connector and swap the positions. It's simple to do. Just use a jewelers screwdriver to depress the lock tabs on each pin to release them. Once you have swapped the pins and reinserted them into the connector housing, plug it back in to the main board. That's it. If you have this humming problem this may be an opportunity to fix it while your machine is open for the EL-panel exchange.

Thank you very much Andreas Trapp for all the nice pictures and the german raw description of this manual and Mike Werning for his hint to eliminate the whining noise. 3.2009 backlight4you
