Green blobs in Matte QNIX QX2710, will seperating the panel layers fix it?

Stupid stupid stupid Mike Hawk redface.gif

Panel was PERFECT!!! No bleed, no stuck/dead pixels. I had already taken the bezel off once before so I could remove the base stem and run an aftermarket vesa mount (Monoprice mount).

Well I went to take the bezel off again so I could spray paint it flat black. In the process of taking off the bezel I also wanted to see if I could remove/disconnect the speakers (they pop when I turn on the PC/monitor, even when set at 0 volume and not hooked up). I had removed the two side frames to get the panel out of the back bezel. I wiggled the panel out of the back bezel but then gave up on disconnecting the speakers as I didn't feel comfortable with the little room I had to manuever.

I go to turn the panel back on and I get this smudge smack dab in the middle, about 2 inches up from the bottom. Only shows up on black, not on red/blue/green/white. I can press around it and it'll go away. mad.gifmad.gifmad.gif

So I took the panel out of the bezels again. No noticeable frame bends. Put back together and still have the issue.

Took it apart again. This time I also disconnected the 3 connections so I could get to just the panel itself. I kinda went all barbarian flexing it on the back side seeing if that'd help. (Alcohol might have been involved biggrin.gif ) Ends up I now have about 10+ green globs on the lower end of my panel from lett to right. Sigh. I tried rubbing ice on them, didn't help. Massaging didn't help. Grrr

I guess somehow the layers of the panel got smushed together? I guess my last resort is to completely take the panel apart and phyiscally lift all the layers apart? As described in the yt vid series by David Thomson where he goes full awesome on taking his panel apart? https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnVkA6ZcoQv5piavGXZDJv3Wj2E4MT_iE

Any other ideas? Anyone run into this before? I'm beyond pissed @ myself. And have already ordered a 2nd monitor as a replacement.

Screen is a paperweight (at least for me).

I took the layers of the panel apart looking for any obvious rubbing or anything. Nope, I must have somehow tweaked the LCD layer itself.

To add insult to injury, when I put it back together my BLB was worse cause I guess I tweaked the frame. I started rubbing the frame in one corner and I hear CRACK. Yup, I had physically cracked the glass. lol.. Stupid Mike.

I'm giving it away for free to a buddy who will probably use it as a garage display.

Live and learn.

What sucks is when I get Monitor #2 in the mail here in a couple days I'm still gonna have to take the front bezel off to take the mount stub out, as well as paint the bezel flat black. I'm gonna be farking paranoid doing that again for #2.

Uh? I still have my health and the stock market is doing okay? redface.gif

Thanks for sharing. Valuable info/caution for those who may take the risk of taking apart their displays. That guy in the video makes it look so simple that I'm sure many people may be tempted if they ever have a reason to dismantle their displays.

To do the BLB tape mod/fix you really have to perform major surgery on the panel. Something I had thought was gonna be super simple if I had to do it. I don't think the risk of damaging the panel is worth it if anyone is thinking about doing the tape mod.

If people do decide to tackle any of their BLB, be SUPER careful your panel is always ALWAYS 100% flat with NO stress on it.

And here I thought I was somewhat of a decent guy at taking apart things and being careful. Oh well.
