liquid leaking from LCD monitor

Hi,

I was trying to fix my DVD drive (see earlier post) and I accidentally hit my LCD monitor with a dense object. A small spider crask formed and there seems to be some kind of liquid foaming from the crack. I tried wiping it up but the image seems to be somewhat distorted now. I collected the leaked liquid, should I try putting it back in the crack using a syringe or something?

Thanks

I am going to go out on a limb and suggest that you let liquid crystal out. Is it still leaking? I think it might be time for a new display.

I don't know what it is exactly, because I got the monitor from some wholesale place. I tried taking a smell but it seems quite caustic. I was going to taste it but my coworker said it was a bad idea.

A warranty should cover this type of thing, even though I'm the one who accidentally hit it?

Thanks
