Buy new or used LCD display for backlight problem?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

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
