Although replacing the entire display assembly is undoubtedly the easiest solution, particularly for the less tech inclined, it may not actually fix the issue. Replacing the components responsible for this function is likely to be what's required. But, it does entail desoldering and soldering of 1 or both components on the mother board. See this source, it provides a great zoom pix of component location You can buy both components very reasonably or separately from a NYC vendor.
