Unhappy What kind of damage

Hello guys,

like you can see in the attachment my screen is somehow damaged.
It is in any area of the screen: dark spots just go green. Totally black screen makes flickering visible.

I testet with different source (changed cables and pc/mac)

I would like to know what kind of damage it is and if there is any possibility to repair.

How it happened: I was cleaning and a bottle of water hit it slightly at the bottom frame.

It's a Dell IPS 27" screen. Don't have any warranty.

thanks in advance

If you tried it on a different source (pc/mac...) and another monitor cable then I would say the panel is bad. Most Dell monitors have a self check mode if you just power them on without connecting them to anything. Depending on what line of monitor you have, the P series have 2-3 year warranties with advanced replacement. You might want to double check with Dell on that.

Can't believe that the panel is broken just with this little hit.

Any chance that there is something wrong with the connections? Or anything easy to repair?
Is there any technical explanation? I really thought it's the connection. Because every Pixel actually 'works' somehow

I can't proof that it wasn't my fault (it somehow was ). So it might be (very?) expensive with Dell.

ps. I'm from germany

sorry for my bad english

Maybe you hit it in a spot that was already weak for some reason maybe a prior hit. I doubt it will help but try unplugging it for an hour or overnight let it have a chance to reset everything (but this looks like it's physical damage so don't expect any improvement).

BTW the word you wanted was prove not proof...English will drive even native speakers crazy.

After a few hours I now turned it on again.

For like 10 seconds the error was still visible... but now it works again. Suddenly all these weird pixels dissappeared.

I'm soooo happy.

But still, what kind of error was/is this?

sorry for my bad english

Bad interconnection somewhere. If so, it could return. I'd open it up and reseat all the internal connections that I could easily access.
You can also try the PC forum since it's a PC monitor you are taking about. Someone else may have had a similar experience.

I'd leave it alone for now, try to not move it much. If the problem comes back then you might want to go looking for a loose chip or wire etc. Or maybe something in the processor got some corrupted data in it which was cleared that's one reason I recommended having it unplugged a while.
