    Was just thinking about this project and another post just popped up this morning about replacing EL bulbs. Glad you're still around... Life happens man.

    I really hope nobody has been waiting this long for this considering all you have to do is buy the replacement EL panels and swap them out. It's so easy and the finished product is just like the original. What more do you need?

    Hi Everyone, I am new on these forums so I couldnt start a new thread, but I am also working on a LED marquee system and I am super close to having this finished. My only problem was getting my led panels thin enough to fit and I belilve I have now have this problem solved.

    I am just waiting for the thinner plastics for my light guides and for the thinner led pcb to arrive. As soon as they do I am sending a 6 panel setup to a friend so we can check everything fits.

    What is the Arduino doing? Detecting the input and firing the MOSFET? Or is there some decoding required on the input?

    Where can EL replacements (like the originals) be bought? I need 6. If anyone has anything to sell me that would work, please PM me!

    It's MV-ELC. Two boards each with 3 EL panels. Where can these be bought? I can't find any online. The nearest I got was this, but it's out of stock:

    Can the individual EL rectangles be replaced? Does LED replacement swap out with these?

    Agreed- I'd like LEDs too. Meanwhile I've ordered 6 x A6 EL panels from glowhut...

    Looks like you found your answer, but just to confirm, yes. The light panels themselves just have a couple of small solder points and adhesive on the back holding them in place.
