Inspiron 710m- monitor blinked, went black after splashing wine on it

Inspiron 710m- monitor is black, can barely see icons,  splashed wine on monitor 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  or bulb of some sort? Thank you for any suggestions or answers. Suke

Is there an image on an external monitor?  If there is, chances are the problem is with the inverter or backlight bulb - though it could still be a mainboard problem.  Have the inverter input and output voltages checked.
