Your best bet would likely be eBay or perhaps iFixit.com has some sources for parts.

This Link from iFixit might help.

Also, this link from Apple Discussions could possibly help. Look at the post from Nicholas.

And, here's another possibly helpful link at the Apple Discussions board.

The above links discuss everything from repairing cold solder joints to placing pressure on certain parts of the display to correct it.

It seems that unless you want to remove and replace individual LEDs on the bar, a full panel replacement is what's usually done if the panel actually needs replacement. Many times it doesn't

Hi Robi: Did you found the led bars? Mine has the same problem and I got not options where to buy them from. I'd appreciate your answer.:(
