I've spent hours looking for a 68 pin 8 digit LCD display and only thing I've found is one supplier and this item is no longer available. http://www.aliexpress.com/item/68PI...hite-LED-Backlight-3-0V-5-0V/32355284475.html

If anyone has any suggestions on where I can find 2 of them I sure would appreciate it !

These are for a DRO (Digital Readout) for a milling machine. The ones I have work but the silver reflective back strip is deteriorated and they're in rough shape.

Thanks for any help

How much is it worth to have a replacement? Prototype LCD displays can be fabricated in China for about $600 for 5 pcs., plus shipping.

Edit: then you can mass produce them -- about 50 to 75 cents for the glass alone. The pins are extra (IIRC, about 5 cents per pin. I haven't used pins in a long time).

Or, you could try eBay for $16 each

That's awesome ! great job man, thank you !

I had searched ebay and kept finding the 2x16 and 4x16 units, which I have and have used for several projects including the one shown below. (the 2x16 in the upper left)

I just ordered 2 from your link, all the dimension specs are correct so hopefully they'll work.

Thanks again,

Steve
