Half of the Task bar is not displaying. That portion is black. Otherwise display is ok


Have you ever gotten water or some kind of liquid spilled on the screen? The black in the corner is usually a sign that the monitor is no good any longer. Time to replace it.

This is an LCD monitor, I an tell because the liquid is running, it means that is broken. Te only way to fix this is by buying another monitor. Maybe you didn't drop it, but, could anybody else drop it?

Screen goes black, power still on


The fault sounds like a invert problem, the inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp which provides the backlight. If you see a dim image when you look at the LCD screen at a sharp angle then this confirms this diagnostics.

Black screen.


Did anyone try to dry up the liquid inside? I've seen customers machines that had wine spilled in them and last a month before finnaly shorting out the system. If you're lucky a tech may be able to recover the data off the hard drive.

Water spill on my AOC2216Vw LCD Monitor


Hey man, thanks for coming to me. Um yea, massaging may help but too hard will do damage since it is LCD is Liquid Crystal Display and it is fragile and easy to damage. The water should clear up in a few months, if not i would look at replacing it which can be costly. Here is a link to fix your unstuck pixels

http://www.wikihow.com/Fix-a-Stuck-Pixel-on-an-LCD-Monitor]

Now im not liking that bit about how you mentioned was spreading so leave it for about two days, give the therapy for the screen a try and let me know if the laptop screen is healing. For the moment if you have one i recommend you hook up a VGA Monitor, old school stuff if you can and give the LCD a rest. I will post as a solution but comment back and i will keep helping you as much as you need it.

Dead pixel


Please read the WHOLE of this guide before starting. Software Method
  1. Try running pixel fixing software. Stuck pixels can often be re-energized by rapidly turning them on and off. If this fails, complete the following steps.

Pressure Method
  1. Turn off your computer's monitor.
  2. Get yourself a damp washcloth, so that you don't scratch your screen.
  3. Take a household pen, pencil, screwdriver, or some other sort of instrument with a focused, but relatively dull, point. A very good tool would be a PDA stylus.
  4. Fold the washcloth to make sure you don't accidentally puncture it and scratch the screen.
  5. Apply pressure through the folded washcloth with the instrument to exactly where the stuck pixel is. Try not to put pressure anywhere else, as this may make more stuck pixels.
  6. While applying pressure, turn on your computer and screen.
  7. Remove pressure and the stuck pixel should be gone. This works as the liquid in the liquid crystal has not spread into each little pixel. This liquid is used with the backlight on your monitor, allowing different amounts of light through, which creates the different colors.

Tapping Method
  1. Turn on the computer and LCD screen.
  2. Display a black image, which will show the stuck pixel very clearly against the background. (It is very important that you are showing a black image and not just a blank signal, as you need the backlighting of the LCD to be illuminating the back of the panel).
  3. Find a pen with a rounded end. A Sharpie marker with the cap on should be fine for this.
  4. Use the rounded end of the pen to gently tap where the stuck pixel is - not too hard to start with, just enough to see a quick white glow under the point of contact. If you didn't see a white glow, then you didn't tap hard enough, so use just slightly more pressure this time.
  5. Start tapping gently. Increase the pressure on the taps gradually for 5-10 taps until the pixel rights itself.
  6. Display a white image (an empty text document is good for this) to verify that you haven't accidentally caused more damage than you fixed.

Tips
  • If the pressure and tapping don't work directly on the stuck pixel, start moving outward around the stuck pixel. If you see the pixel flicker while doing this then you know where you can focus the pressure and tapping techniques rather than directly on the pixel.
  • Many people report success with this technique but these instructions won't work in every case. It may take a few attempts to make sure you are pressing exactly on the stuck pixel.
  • These instructions will fix "stuck" pixels, not "dead" ones. Dead pixels appear black while stuck pixels can be one constant color like red, blue or green.
  • An alternative, but similar technique involves gently massaging the stuck pixel with a warm damp (not wet) soft cloth.
  • Alternative technique to tapping: Using a rounded pencil eraser, push with moderate pressure into screen at stuck pixel.
  • If these instructions don't work, you can hopefully get the monitor replaced through your manufacturer. If your monitor falls under the specifications of replacement, get in contact with the manufacturer to set up replacement plans.

Warnings
  • Do not attempt to open the monitor as it will void the warranty and the manufacturer will not replace it.
  • Make sure you don't get any electrical equipment wet or it may break.
  • Some people claim that touching the screen can cause more pixels to become stuck, although this has not been proven.
  • Be prepared to suffer a complete loss; you may crack the glass when tapping or putting pressure on an LCD assembly.
