  I thought all 8/M systems had LED front panels. At least every one
I've seen has.

  Not sure where to find replacements. Newark Electronics has a nice
(but expensive) selection of lamps. Also you might want to try Gilway
Technical Lamp...if you can't find them online, let me know and I'll
dig up a catalog.
