Unhappy entertainment center lights

I have a three piece entertainment center that has a touch dimmer at the top for the lights. The box, a Westek model 6553 touch dimmer stopped working, and I need to replace it. The box is from Westek in Monsey, NY and says "120 VAC 60 HZ 200 WATTS. The box had a small wire coming out of it that was wired to a metal screw. When you swipe your finger over the screw, the lights are supposed to come on and off, dim, etc. I've been to Radio Shack and Home Depot looking for the replacement, but they have nothing like it. Any advice would be appreciated.

Have you tried searching for the manufacturer on the web?

Here's something from Rockler that appears almost similar. I think it still needs a transformer to work though.

Entertainment Center Lights

I found it! I did a Google search under the model number and the words touch dimmer and there it was. I ordered it. Now I am not sure whether I should install it myself or hire someone! Now that I have it, I don't want to mess it up!
