Hey all, I spilled some water in my Samsung S24d300 monitor. It shut off for a bit, then the power button kept flickering. Eventually though, the power button began responding as normal thankfully :)

 

What I have notice, one of the other buttons refuses to respond at all ( The "Game Mode/Down Arrow" button). I think this button won't come back to life, but my issue is I actually like to use the game mode button as it gives better colors. 

 

So my question is is there any software/trick I can use to let me select the button without physically pressing it?

There may possibly be a control panel but it would be supplied by the manufacturer.  It isn't a serious problem to remove the bezel and unmount the switches for cleaning.  Spraying with a non-residue electronic cleaner should do the trick.

Don't think cleaning will do, pretty sure that button is fried.
