Rubbing alcohol will take it off. Use a Q-Tip dipped in rubbing alcohol to trace over the writing, then clean off with a soft cloth - preferably a microfiber cloth. Make a second application. Afterward, clean the screen completely with your normal cleaning routine (I actually use glasses cleaner and a microfiber cloth). This method works - just now used it to clean Sharpie off our flat screen TV.

This is the way I each all my techs to open and repair a monitor.First things first.You’ll need a Phillips screwdriver, rubber gloves, a fiberglass diddle stick(Radio Shack)aluminum tape, small cups and colored markers.Do this operation on a large flat surface.I suggest using an anti-static mat or large piece of wood underneath so as not to scratch the table or counter surface. First take your diddle stick and sharpen one end to look like a flat blade screwdriver.DON NOT USE a metal screw driver (metal causes scratches.)Now turn off the monitor, unplug all the cables and remove all the accessories i.e. stand, speakers.Take out all the screws from the back (these are different sizes so put them in different cups and mark their locations using a colored marker).Once all the screws are removed take your diddle stick.Insert the stick under the front edge of the screen.Sometimes you can use a finger to start lifting the plastic bezel.Under the plastic bezel you’ll see the metal frame of the screen.The diddle stick needs to ride on top of that metal and under the plastic.Once there you can move the stick up and down on each side.This will release the internal plastic catches and soon the bezel will pop off.The control panel my be screwed into this so be careful.At this point you can lift out the screen.There will be metal shield(s) covering the two circuit boards.A number of screws will release the boards.You’ll need to remove the nut screws from the video connector also.The power supply board is probably soldered on to the frame but that should be easy.That’s it.Do your thing and be careful putting it back together.The Golden Rule of service work – NO EXTRA PARTS.Good luck.
The thin ribbon that connects the board on the back of the lcd screen to the front glass of the lcd screen got damaged.
It wraps around the top of the screen and is very thin and can be easily damaged.
May be from old age and heat at the top of the screen or it could have gotten hit at the top.
The cheapest way to repair this is to replace the lcd screen with a
good used one because trying to find a shop to try to repair it would
cost more than a new monitor. It will change color with different colors and also if you push the screen at the top point. Don't play with pushing the screen too often as this may cause more to show up.
Sorry there isn't an easy fix to this.
Monitor sizes are measured on the diagonal from corner to corner.
A 17" LCD may have a screen width of 12 inches measured from side to side.
If you are measuring a old style CRT monitor (Cathode Ray tube) the visible screen area will be about an inch less as there is about 1/2 inch of plastic frame holding the CRT in the chassis. The manufacturer can advertise the actual size of the screen regardless of how much is actually visible to display information.
If you are talking about software not utilizing all the available screen area to display the image, that is an issue with the people writing the software code not keeping up with the changes in hardware.
In the past year or two, most displays have switched to the 16:9 and 16:10 wide aspect ratios while most web content is still written for the 4:3 old style aspect ratio. Eventually, software developers will catch up with cusrrent hardware.
I had the same problem but fortunately I have two of these monitors so could fiddle with the menus on the working monitor until I could work out how to fix it on the one with the white screen problem. Here's what you do:-
With the monitor on and the white screen showing press MENU, then UP 7 times, then MENU and presto! Your screen will be back to normal.
What this does is change the input from ANALOG to DIGITAL (or vice versa!) either way this worked for me.
