Default Furuno GP-37 brilliance issue

I am hoping someone can provide some advice from their own experiences with a Furuno GP-37 (or 32 same thing almost) losing the Brill and/or Backlight functionality.

The contrast functions fine. Brilliance does not change at any setting and remains un-viewable at night. It's not even slightly dim. I believe the backlight might be burned out. Other than not being able to see the screen at night, the unit works perfectly.

Has anyone have any experience in getting this issue fixed or know where I could get parts for the unit? I assume GP-32 parts for the screen are similar.

I know I can just buy a new GP-32 for <$400. But, I would like to keep my GP-37 and I am not afraid to fix my own electronics if I can find the parts.

Thanks in advance to anyone with any input/suggestions.
