Question Monitor panel damage, what are my options?

Aug 23, 2020
Hi team -

I've noticed a blemish on my LG UL950W panel. I may have caused this during installation, but I'm not sure. I've had it for about 2 months and its been beautiful, but now that I've noticed this, I can't un-see it. I was wondering what my options would be? I don't really know how to describe it, so I've taken a couple of pictures.

Some videos on youtube suggest using something like petroleum jelly to mask the blemish... I don't really want to do something that might damage the monitor further.

Hopefully you can see the images on this post -



Thank you for taking the time to read and reply,
If you for sure did would probably have to research and find the panel they used, look for a replacement.

If it came out of the box that way I would return or warranty it.

Edit- I know EXACTLY how you feel though. I bought an AOC monitor a few years ago on a good deal, great looking monitor. It's got a bad pixel area down in one corner than shows blue. Never got bigger or went any further but for the longest time I couldn't help but look right at it.
