Hi Patrick,

I had the same problem with the illumination being too dim to read on the
instrument pannel of the M-715. What it turned out to be was a thick layer
of dust and dirt on the cases of the gages. The light comes in through
several slots near the face of the gages. After I cleaned off the years of
crud, they work just fine now.
