Inspiron 710- splashed wine on monitor, blinked, came on for a while next day, now black, barely can see screen

Inspiron 710m- monitor is black, can bearly see; splashed wine on monitor
By suke in Audio

 

It ran the next day for a while and went black again. Did a monitor test and got three little lock boxes, a 9, a A, and a downward arrow.; Tried the driver and utility cd but the screen is too dark to see. Also tried to brighten it but that didn't work either; ??? Do I need a new monitor or is it a light of some sort? Thank you for any suggestions or answers.  Suke

Sounds like an issue with the backlight of the LCD. You can see the screen clearer if you point a flashlight on it, right? Yeah, the screen for that may need replacement.

If you have complete care warranty, this is covered under that warranty.
