Default Nooooo, my monitor is water damaged

Hi all, having a bit of a mare, today, I managed to knock over half a pint of water in the direction of my monitor, it went all over, I rushed to turn it off and unplug any power cables as quickly as I could and proceeded to mop up any water from the screen as quickly as possible, but alas, it was too late, I've had the monitor apart twice trying to get all the excess water out, I have managed to get rid of what looked like a puddle of water in the bottom right corner, but I'm still left with a streak going all the way down the left side of the monitor, is there anything that can be done about this or am I basically up a certain brown coloured creek devoid of paddles, thanks

Eventually, the water will evaporate out, but it may leave deposits behind.

Thanks for the reply, gutted, I'm usually so careful near my computer, There were three sheets of some sort, not sure what they were, this is the first time I've attempted to take a monitor apart, I left the bottom bit alone as it looked like it would be difficult to get back on, took the sheets out and tried to dry them, I have a feeling that was a stupid idea, should have just left the monitor ajar and left the air to do the job which I ended up doing the second time around

U need to keep it for drying for 2 days and you shouldn't be operating it. I guess your laptop is fine now?

Is it possible that that line of water is between the LED and LCD panel?
I haven't disassembled a monitor before, so i don't know if that's even possible or possible to fix without damaging the monitor further.

You should have equipped it with a water resistant armor.

Err... is your weather dry? If so, put it under the sun for a day or so after kicking all excessive water out, until all the rest dries out. Then start it again and try your luck. This trick saved and my fossil MSX computer in the past.

Let the water dry out by its self. It should work. Keep usupdated. Did it work?
