Yesterday I accidentally spilled some water over my 22 inch LCD Dell Monitor’s Screen and after 15 minutes I saw small black portion at the mid bottom of my screen and it keeps on expanding.

What should I do now? What can be done to get my LCD screen back to normal?

    You pretty much have to wait (and hope) for it to dry. Sunlight might help. It will spread for a while as the water wicks upwards, and may take quite a while - last time this happened to me it took several weeks. Incidentally, it's just an LCD screen - LED refers to the backlighting, and is irrelevant to this issue. – Bob Nov 19 '14 at 7:35
  • So should I turn it on or what ?. – Rahul Sharma Nov 19 '14 at 8:34

After the water spill, I'd immediately turn off the monitor and give it a sufficient time to dry. Continuing to use the thing with water present in the electronics will no doubt be problematic for the monitor and could be permanent.

  • How much time would be sufficient in such case, in my case only a small portion is turn black and I immediately turned it off. it has been 1 day since I turned it off. – Rahul Sharma Nov 19 '14 at 7:37
