Hey Ryan,
One example of a third party back light would be the Harris SuperTech 2000.
This was based on an MP120 with a backlight.
The Backlight was powered by an installation that was located in the Stylus
Silo area IIRC.
In anycase that's about all I know about it and that it may be possible to
try to retro fit something into the MP100, but there really is not much
Maybe Frank and chime in on this.....???

God bless,
