help! spill on thinkpad t410 screen

hi guys sorry to post such an amateur question

i was trying to clean my t410 screen with some cleaning fluid that's made to clean glasses. i sprayed a small amount (less than 1 milliliter) on the screen. unfortunately, having never done this before, i let some of the fluid flow down to the bottom of the screen, and it went in between the gap of the glass and the frame. i've seen the lenovo t410 water torture tests, but this is cleaning fluid. what should i do?

hum... firstly you should use any sort of ammonia based cleaning fluids for cleaning LCD glass, as you will ruin the screen surface. Use professional LCD cleaning solution (or mild detergent in water 1:100)

You can try to take off the screen bezel and clean up any liquid spill.

thank you!

also i want to know, since only a very small amount entered the space between the screen and the frame, what is the worst case scenario if i let it sit? thank you!

edit: i should clarify, several drops of the liquid slipped down between the BEZEL and the LCD MODULE.

maybe a dead screen. What sort cleaning fluids did you use? if it is ammonia based, then you should clean it up, otherwise it will corrode away the electrical part.
