How to fix the broken lights on a classic Furman PL8?

I’ve got a half dozen of these classic PL8’s floating around my studio with broken lights (not bulbs of course). Can’t find a single video on how to repair the light fixtures. Is it the dimmer or something? Can someone point me in a direction to a DIY solution?

Thanks!

It may be an IC. Analog to digital converter or LED driver. Possibly power to either is down due to a bad capacitor or other supporting component. Guessing here. Obtain the schematic. Not a complicated device, so opening it up and referring to the schematic and using a multimeter is your path to success.

LED lights for PL8 II?

At one time you could buy the whole assembly but now you might only find the LED board. You would need to solder the two cables in place it.
