I cannot start it in safe mode as there is nothing showing on the screen at all VOG.

Graham is it is easy to change the backlight tube and at what price ?

I think this is a job for a shop, unless Graham ® knows otherwise.

Put repair laptop into google. It's not cheap.

Is there any way that I could plug my laptop into another screen to know if it is the backlight tube or something else ?

If you have another monitor to hand, or can borrow one, yes you can.
