I have a Dell Studio 15 that has developed some moisture(I think) on the inside of the display. Is it fairly easy to remove and clean the screen? Thanks

Hi geno368.
If there is moister or a possible defect inside the display panel itself, it is a sealed unit and there is nothing outside the factory, besides replacement, that you can do to fix it. You can take the display panel out, but that's it.
To see what I mean, look here.
I would suspect a defect more then moister.
Anyway you could take a picture of it and post here?

The one thing Dell does have are good tutorials for disassembly.
What's the service tag number off the bottom of the laptop?

Hitsquad, I don't think it will show up in a picture...It is a greasy looking spot covering the bottom right section of the screen.

Mark, the s/tag is B6ltlh1

Some spots disappear slowly in time (I have experience... :thumbsup:. For how long is it there and do you know how it started?

regards, Elise
