Customer Question

I have a Sony Bravia KDL-52BR5 flat screen tv. It has started flickering w/ lines across screen. A guy told me it's my backlight going out. I would like to replace it. I'm good with electronics, if it's a simple remove and replace part. Does this sound like what I need to replace? thanks, Roger
