Sad and depressed Chumby doesn't see the light anymore

One of the my Insignia 8's quit working today.  It seems to maybe have been somewhat gradual.  First it starting sometimes connecting and mostly not connecting to the network via the USB to NIC device.  I tested the power supply to be fine with the other Chumby's.  Today the backlight went out.  I do still see the USB LED on the NIC going on; but no backlight. 

Is it worth fixing or should I just keep it for spare parts?

I waited a bit and plugged in the PS and still do not see a back light.

Any suggestions?

 

It was a Christmast present last year.  Can it be fixed?

Unless I could repair it for a reasonable cost; it'll be basically a spare parts or throw away. 

 

I expected more than a year out of it though.

Hello Pete_c,

 

Unfortunately replacement parts are unavailable for this model, I would suggest taking the device to your local Geek Squad to inquire about repairs.
