So the status on this matter is they asked me to send it back. I asked Fedex how much it would cost me to send it back. It was over 700 USD. Obviously I'm not going to pay for it. I asked for the seller for their Fedex customer ID so I could send this monitor back using their contracts but I haven't heard of them since. Guess this monitor stays here and I'm gonna have to fix it myself.
I'd be happy to report the seller ID on ebay but I'm not sure if it violates some rule on these forums.
Kind of a bummer since it is so rare that this happens.
