I got this old fluke multimeter with defect display and not work paying to get repaired with newLCD display.
Defect LCD display in this fluke is a common failure, but no spare part avaiable online.

This guy repaired his fluke with 7 segments LED's display.
I desided to try this fix, and a had a old useless TRIAX TTR120 mpeg 2 tv digital tuner, i desided to hack it and make a LED 7 segment transplantation. I killed the triax tuner, removed the display board and found the datasheet for 7 segments here: LIM-5622G 7 segment display green light. These 7 segment LED's have nice big bright LEDS.
The dual seven segment LED display LIM-5622g is a common anode type as used in the hack. Don't know the current, voltage is 2-2,5 volt, curent properly 10-20 mA cause this is normal. I will come back to test this spec latter.
Started to removed the old defect LCD display.
