Default "I blue myself" - blue streaks on lcd

My nephew was zealously playing mushroom wars, and while he was trying to angrily eliminate the enemy shrooms he was pressing entirely to hard.

I now have some seriously bleed behind the corner of the screen where the offending shrooms were. Also there are blue streaks in the same corner. which are in my opinion a much worse eyesore than the bleeding.




I assume he has not only pushed the LCD away from the digitizer, but also irreparably damaged the LCD it'self. However I was wondering if anyone had any ideas as to what I can do to fix the streaking. I am going to tear it apart and try to fix the bleed issue.

Giving you a thanks for the AD reference

Why not try seeing if you can get asus to service it? I've never seen that happen on another glass-covered device even with excessive force used.

Looks like too much pressure was put on the unit causing what is behind the screen to be pressed upwards toward the lcd/glass. This is normally a metal shield of some sort. Pulling dents out from it may be possible with some sort of dent puller/suction cup but there is a frame in the way that may cause you issues from looking @ http://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/Nexus...Teardown/16072. Also if the soft battery has suffered any crush damage or bending it may puff out and need to be replaced or you run the risk of a runaway thermal event at worst or just reduced run-time at best.

Don't you also need to remove a warranty voiding sticker to access the shielding in the first place?

I actually have the same thing, have had it on 3 separate units too. Gave up on trying to get a new one after the third and will be trying to send it int asus. None have suffered any damage or abuse either.

I have the same problem out of the box. mine looks like a warped outline of the motherboard. I've been on the fence about loosening the screws on the motherboard to see if that helps, but that means removing the warranty sticker. Has anyone else tried?
