DX 6i Backlight with HK Backlight
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
The HK Backlight kit is Changed by Tech4rc to work with the DX 6i, if you have the Tech4rc backlight for the 6i, it will not work in a TH 9X or 9X. YouTube video is not clear on MOD of HK backlight.
I checked the idea of a direct plug in to the main PCB of the DX 6i, and found the + and - for the display reversed and the swiched + wire (BAT) would be the red wire next to the black on the HK jumper plug. So a small bit of soldering is required to MOD the HK backlight PCB.
You could reduce the 470 ohm resistor by putting a nother resistor in parallel with it or replace it with a lesser value. I like the display not too bright at night and for SIM use. Some like it bright, so check the wattage of your resistor choice.
