Default Acer GR235H partially losing backlight

Unfortunately my trusty GR235H seems to be on its way out. After a while I lose two backlight segments at the bottom of the screen, always the same two. If I switch it off and on again it will work and keep working for hours.

A couple of times it's also been completely black screen with just the power light (I haven't shone a light on it yet to see if it's actually displaying anything), and again has started working properly after turning off and on.

What kind of problem am I dealing with here? If it's an LED strip how do I go about replacing it?
