    I assume it punctured the active surface as a small hole shows permanently
    white . I would have expected a line and or row or a few such lines to be
    non-funtioning, at least one side of the hole, why not?

    Dart likely thrown from a drone, hence no collateral damage.
     
  3. If it actually punctured the LCD, there would be much more serious
    effects. I'd guess it only took out a bit of the front polarizer.

    I'll have to find a piece of polarizor film and see if colours return in
    that spot Then how to cut a tiny bit of the film and plug the hole

    Polarizor film at the right angle does bring back to normal, whether a
    little circle of it over the hole is more objectionable than permanent
    hite - debatable.

    Have you done this? Seems like a very tiny "drop" of something grey
    or black would be better. Maybe that epoxee that comes out grey,
    either PC-70 or the one in tubes which is thinnebut if you get a small
    enough bit, maybe it won't run. The second is famous but I can't
    remember the name.

    II've used the windshield repair kit and the tube that the stuff is
    pumped through is at least 3mm. Won't that cover lots of lcds?
