While moving it seems I've damaged my monitor, a Sony LCD.  It has a gray spot about the size of a thumb print.  Can this be repaired?

Is the grey spot on the screen or on the trim? If it’s the screen are there any dead pixels?

it's on the screen.  the pixels don't appear to be dead.  it's more like a smuge spot (of an irregular shape).

I have not had to repair and screens i have heard that displex display polish works good on TFT LCD screens. For light scratches you can try a thin coat of Vaseline i don’t think it works that good. http://www.wikihow.com/Fix-a-Scratch-on-an-LCD-Screen

We do a lot of laptop repairs and based on the information provided, my best guess is that it is not repairable and you're looking at replacing the screen.   If this is a stand-alone LCD monitor, given the falling prices of good quality monitors of late you'd be better off chucking it and buying a new monitor.  

If this is a laptop LCD, check ebay for replacement LCD panels for your model and find yourself a good laptop repair technician in your area to replace it for you.   If you're providing the part, you shouldn't incur more than an hour or hour and a half of labor.
