IBM thinkpad R51 pink screen

\015 For a few weeks I have thought that my screen had a slightly pink hue but when I opened it this morning it was obvious. The bottom right corner is very pink and then it slowly fades so that the bottom right 1/4 of the screen is all slighty pink. I know very little about computers, please help me:)\015

Same thing on my wife's R51....I have replaced the backlight in other systems, however this was her work computer..took to a good reputable business class repair shop.....the backlight is in a complete unit that has to be replaced, and the piece cost $350...also, the shop said not to do this yourself, because you need to be in a "clean room" or the dust you get inside the screen will glow....the screens are sealed on the R51....so you will open it up to dust if you take it apart...best thing is to do a complete screen replacement...
You will need to replace the cold cathode tube that backlights the display.
