Apologies for those who must be tired of these queries - i have been away from handling any of my IOTA or Light Wallet for near on a year now and can't find a solution in previous posts. 
I made the transition to light wallet 2.4.0 - IRI 1.3.1 whenever that was, and successfully could see all my balance. I have since returned and am unable to find a node to connect to on this old wallet type. I have downloaded the newest 2.5.7 and tried to see if my old wallet seed would work on this . I suspect this is all fairly obvious to those who actually understand all this! What should I be doing?

many thanks

Hi jwcharl,
welcome to Hello IOTA!

Your seed will work with the latest version of the lightwallet. But if you can't see your balance, this could have a bunch of reasons. It could be because of snapshots or because your funds have been secured by the Foundation in October or because of an unsynched node.

I think you should read this post first:

Please let us know if this helps...
