LCD Monitor Backlight Replacement - Cost to Replace LCD Monitor Backlight

The thin CCFL backlight tube costs $5 to buy, while the super-bright backlight costs $20

When I repair LCD monitors, I usually install the 7" Citizen CTZ179 backlight or the Stanley CBS4-160S backlight. Both are $5 retail and last around 3-5 years without dimming.

Additionally, if your LCD unit (monitor or television) is for outdoor use, check out the Sharp backlight (Sharp BL-C053)
