    depends on the panel, and the availability of a replacement ccfl.
    some are as simple as removing a screw, sliding out the cartridge, removing the lamp, and unsolder/resolder the leads.
    Others require a more complex disassembly of the lcd panel to access the lamp.
    Verify that you can get a replacement lamp, as you may in fact be replacing the lcd panel.

    the backlight is replaceable, and is an easy part to get.
    you need to remove the panel from the frame, then remove the ccfl from the panel. post pics please. will advise on ccfl removal if you want.

    www.mouser.com, or www.digikey.com.
    ccfl lamps are measured in mm, both diameter and length. do not count the wire leads when measuring the length.
