Buy new or used LCD display for backlight problem?

    I have a Gateway Solo 1450 which has a backlight problem. Rather than
    try to repair the problem myselft or pay some shop to fix it, would it
    not make more sense to just replace the LCD with a new or used one that
    I can buy on the ebay or somewhere on the internet?

    If I did so, to replace the LCD would I just have to remove the screw
    that holds
    the video cable in place and also the hinge screws, then simply attach
    the new LCD display? Would this work, assuming it is a backlight
    problem?

    Thanks.
