Under the LCD is a metal plate that the LCD mounts to, you can see in the corner that rust has moved from the LCD frame to the mounting plate. What i don’t understand is how water or moisture made it this far and then what exactly the rust is feeding off of? This plate is treated, it’s not bare metal yet rust still was able to form.

The bigger problem now is that the rust on the mounting plate has migrated to the back of the plate—which is in contact with the circuit board.
