Hi Paul,

thank you very much for answer and all hints and links!

I successfully de-solder the inductor (quick testing shows that no 
resistors shorted around... as I hope) and found some analogues on 
farnell (same package and inductance), but I'm not pretty sure 
concerning the frequency and other parameters.

 >= 2MHz is it self resonance frequency? what you think whether is it ok 
if it will be 70MHz for example?

this is components I short-listed:

could you please give a glance if you have a couple of seconds?

And just one more question (maybe to late), I didn't remove LCD before 
de-soldering and now I'm slightly worry about possible damage of it. 
Visually it's ok. What is your opinion?
