Are the backlights for the face of the radio replaceable? I had a light burnout that lights up the Traffic, P-Type, Info, and AM/FM buttons. If they're not, or not easily, I'll just have the dealer replace the radio under the extended warranty. What a waste. buy a new $900 cd player just for a burned out light.
While I've got a Classic, I just noticed this same issue on my Bose when I replaced it a couple of months ago (for a bad CD unit). New (used from ebay) and old both had about 6 burned out LEDs each.
The LEDs are soldered onto a circuit board. They aren't "normally" replaceable. Since I had 2 units, I unsoldered the dead ones from my replacement unit and did the same with a similar number of good ones from my old unit. I then soldered them back into place on the replacement unit. They all work fine now. I'm not sure how many folks are comfortable enough with a soldering iron to do it (without overheating anything), but it can be done.
Since I had a second matching unit I had a source of replacement LEDs. Without some kind of specs, I'm not sure what a decent source of matching (especially covered in an opaque blue) LEDs might be...
