Re: water falled on my lcd screen
I'm sorry to say that the LCD monitor may not be repairable. For the time being you may be able to drag the taskbar to the right side of the screen. Left click on the tool bar and drag it to the right. Even if you can't see the taskbar it should work. I hope you can replace your lcd display soon.

Hello, unfortunately this is usually due to hardware problem, In this specific situation it is most likely the problem with lcd panel itself (electronic on panel). Sometimes it can work after the units becomes cold (not working for some time) and you power it on again.
Anyway if you are not familiar with electronics , please visit proper service center, due to the high voltage inside.
Hope this helps.
ok, we have two options here, either the power inverter that turns on the backlight has stoped working or the backlight itself is not working. in these both situations, the best for you will be to ask to a local technician to replace it for you. but you may want to verify first if it's worth it to repair due to the low prices on lcd monitors nowadays.
Most of the time in this situation, the problem is due to the backlight going out. However, there are some instances where the inverter cable is bad.
The backlight is the part of the LCD which illuminates the screen. Think of an LCD as having multiple layers. One layer has the image itself on a semi-transparent layer and then behind that layer rests the backlight (usually a florescent bulb) which shines through all other layers to make the image glow and illuminate.
More info can be found here:
As far as replacing the backlight, I always replace the whole LCD itself, which includes the backlight.
Otherwise, you risk ordering the backlight and finding out that it was the connection from the backlight to the LCD that was causing the problem (very possible) and then you would have to order the LCD anyway.
You tried your best in performing the first step (Leaving it out to dry)
But actually it is posible that the heat of the sun couldnt reach into some parts of the laptop and that some components must have been aftected before you came to its rescue
Apparently water or moisture was still resident in some internal part of the Laptop and this would have conducted some little spike of electricity that might have destroyed some components while it was connected to the AC.The flickers on the screen is an evidence of a possible spike from water or moisture.
Get a technician to open up the Laptop completely. He has to take a good look at each component carefully and clean them up.
Yes theres a possibility of your LCD being damaged but the VGA Card should be tested first.
Your Laptop would definitely come back to normal but not until each component is checked properly
Due to the flourescent lights that are used in this product, i would suggest trying to return the product for a new one, as one or maybe a few of the bulbs may have busted or become loose due to the impact caused by the fall.
Your new LCD is faulty. The band on your old one is the end of it I am affraid.
Laptop LCD's although built to take a beating (or so it seems) are extremely fragile. It only take a very small drop to end their lives.
