|The way I see it is if the pixels were really dead I would be seeing irregularly shaped groups of black/dead pixels around parts of the screen where the water splashed. But this is a perfectly vertical straight line. Doesn't the cable transmit signals to the video card from the LCD in vertical lines? I think I can take a shot and see what happens if the cable is replaced.|
I didn't open it up yet and let it dry out. My GF spilled water on it and it was 3 days until she gave it to me, and the black line happened 4 days after the accident, but by then I think the panel would have already dried.
