The CD-40 and CD-45 came in separate models w/ either green *or* amber backlighting so you'll have to find a specific amber model. There is no button that switches the color, although the newer CD-400 and CD-500 do this and mix green and amber. Those early models are (obviously) discontinued, however they do pop up on eBay from time to time. People who have them don't want to get rid of 'em. Good luck, and if you end up snagging one, you'll love it!
