2007 Toyota Camry Navigation Screen Backlight DEAD

The navigation screen on my recently went blank, while I was driving to my little brother's graduation. I can still see a faint outline of the screen, but other than that, it is hard to see. Have anyone ever had this problem with their navigation screen? I've tried look in the manual for a solution, but it doesn't have anything useful in it. I've googled for the solution as well, but most people said that if I were to bring it into the dealership, they would just replace my whole unit and that would cost $2000 or more, which is a no-go. I've tried to see if it was a fuse, but I got no idea what I'm looking at when I looked at the fuse box. I'm thinking it is maybe the backlight and that it maybe just died. By the way, the screen still works, I can still press on it and select my preset radio stations, but just can't see.

If anyone have a clue how to fix this, please let me know. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

Google 'Toyota navigation system repair' This is one of the links outlining an owner in much the same predicament as you. The big issue is that 'normal people' have a difficult time getting replacement parts - the backlight is but one example.
