Sadly, I think its to far gone to fix economically. I think it would be best to replace it. But, the worry here is what caused the damage in the first place! You stated the backlight went so you then bought a replacement display. When you plugged in the new display did you hear a pop or see or smell the smoke? Did you hear a pop or see or smell smoke when the backlight went at the very start? Do you have your system on a surge suppressor or UPS? Did you encounter a power disruption or a lightning storm?
