Default Wanted CCFL tube for 22 inch widescreen LCD

Clyde Inscribed thus:

Hi, fixing this for a friend. TV is a cheapo Argos (Wharfedale) 22
inch widescreen. One of the backlights has failed, causing the
inverter to shut off after a few seconds. Confirmed failed lamp using
a spare CCFL tube I have laying around. LCD panel (Samsung) has 4
tubes, 2 at the bottom and 2 at the top. Tube measures 480mm end to
end. Wires are very closely soldered to the tube ends. Has anyone got
any laying around, perhaps on a broken screen? Or where would be a
good place to get one (UK)

I can pick one up online, but they seem to have longer ends for the
wire connections, so we would probably have to get one with wires
presoldered on, or go for one slightly shorter.

Getting the panel apart to gain access to the tubes was fun, I expect
even more fun putting it back together and trying to keep it clean.
Probably not really designed to be opened up, but the LCD itself is

Where abouts in the UK ? I may be able to help...
