I  once looked at $500 for a replacement screen on a Compaq ("12 diagonal-
ly,  back in 2001/2). It was particularly annoying as the sole faulty ele-
ment  was the power wire which needed replacing. It only came with the en-
tire  display unit. The technicians would of course make no exceptions un-
less  another  dead  unit laid about. They could also use the  money  that
would  be  charged for an larger new component, so wanted about  $200  for
component 'recycling' IIRC.

With  RSS components I managed to compose together some replacement  wires
and  housings.  So, if I were you, I would find out if there is a  simpler
way  to address the problem rather than graft the entire display unit  and
replace  it. This can be expensive if you include labour and shipping (un-
less it's under warrantee of course).
