there is a plug in replacement that uses 5 or 6 LED chips - I can't remember
the part number at the moment, but they are available in th UK from the
likes of RS and Farnell. I found a number of them fitted in the 11/45 that I
just rescued from work.

I'll extract one on Monday, and find the manufacturer and part number (I
still have the 11/45 stashed at work - I'm trying to get it going while
there are still a few spares and pheriphals around - not that I can get
much, as we are still using 11/34's and 11/84's in qauntity, as well as a
few 11/23's and 11/05's)
