I didn't really do anything, after seeing the physical bend in the metal preventing it from fitting, I just decided to reassemble it.

Why not just add add some tape, like an L shaped pattern which fits here (goes towards z in 3D space):

pPO2+

Several pieces of tape should do the trick as long as it's not some cheap Dollar store tape that melts upon exposure to heat. (Any good tape should work).

The more I think about it, the less sure I am that that part is the source of the backlight bleed anyway. I'm trying to find some guides explaining construction of these monitors but ifixit calls it done once you have the screen out. Installing screws wouldn't help keep that back part in place regardless though.

I think I'm going to set out a bigger surface and get the screen out and fully disconnected to have a better look at what's there and what it does.

Just got mine. Gorgeous display, picked up the pixel perfect version from Bigclothcraft....no back light bleed...nothing except ONE RED STUCK PIXEL THAT IS BOTHERING THE LIVING F*** OUT OF ME.....ok I've calmed down. I hope BCC will do a relatively painless exchange and cover shipping both ways.

Well, I just got one, and although there are no dead pixels, the bleed is HORRIBLE.

The screen looks great (and works great), just the bleed makes anything with a reasonably dark image look terrible.

I must have gotten lucky, because mine doesn't seem to have any noticeable backlight bleeding.

yeah the bleed put me off too. Its an amazing screen but the corners have some BLEED. I wonder is this true for other brands? I might just ask for a refund instead of an exchange and go with another brand

They all use the same panels, so I'd assume the bleed is as much a lottery with any of the other brands as with the Potalion.

Wow. If that's true to life, that's horrible.
