LCD Display Leakage Issue
I am the original owner of this Toshiba and it has traveled around the world with me. As the LCD touch panel became problematic, exhibiting "false touch" and appearing as though it was somehow compromised as the display appeared like one with a huge crack would appear. This lead me to simply use the HDMI port and use an external monitor, while also disabling the touch mouse, allowing me to regain operation of the machine.
Fast forward to July 2022 ~ a year after disabling the touch pad and using external HDMI, and a few years after dealing with the false touch issue, the display one weekend, had this incredibly sticky clear mucus like substance all along the connecting path for the display to the keyboard. (this is where the latch and electrical connections are for separating the touch panel from the keyboard piece.
I am very certain this large amount of sticky ooze is from the LCD panel. It is absolutely EVERYWHERE. My question is, what is the best method to remove this substance?
As this is still a very useful machine, I have already ordered a new touch panel & video cable. The existing cable is probably electrically fine, except for the edge connector being covered in the sticky goop.
Any ideas on what this is, though again I am certain it is from the display, AND how to clean this mess, would be greatly appreciated.
It was great to find this machine on ifixit. As a result, I have joined the site and hope to use it as a greater reference.
