Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC40 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

LCD backlight lamp broken

The picture on my LCD flip-out monitor on my SONY DCR-HC40 is very dark. I think the backlight lamp is broken. I am considering trying to replace the backlight lamp by myself as a repair charge has a minimum fee of $150+. Can anyone tell me if it is easy to replace the lamp and if so, direct me to instructions on how to replace one?
