EL backlighting has a fairly short halflife I believe.
Maybe it's possible to get a new sheet of it.
Converting it over to use modern LED backlighting systems might be another
trick, but I don't know if modern laptops run LED PWD in time to the
screen refresh, or if there is room where the EL sheet was.
