1. Cracks, Scratches or Broken Glass

The LCD glass on the display is manufactured to rigorous specifications and standards and will not typically crack or break on its own under normal use.

2. Black Splotches or Ink Spots of Various Sizes

The internal glass has cracked allowing the liquid crystal to pool into areas of the screen.

Internal cracks typically occur due to excessive force on the screen. This can be the result of some object hitting the screen, a drop, or even improper handling during installation. Such effects may not appear immediately and may increase in size and visibility over time.

3. Dark or Light Spots of Various Sizes

Spots typically occur due to an external force hitting the screen or pressure from the sides (bezel edges) from handling or installation causing damage to the LCD panel’s backlight assembly. While the top layer did not crack or break, the underlying area was compressed and damaged causing this effect. Such effects may not appear immediately and may increase in size and visibility over time.

4. Liquid Spill

Spilling any type of liquid or storing and installing the display in a high moisture environment can cause it to seep into the LCD panel.
