34" ultrawide curved monitor left side of screen blank

Recommended Posts

So there's a guy i'm currently speaking with selling the afore mentioned monitor for $80 (pretty sure this thing retails for like $500).  All i know is that the whole left side of the monitor is completely black.  I don't know much about monitors really, so I'm looking for some ideas on what could be causing this issue.  Could it be the backlight? The whole left side is just dead pixels? a board problem? He said there are no cracks that are visible on the screen, but if there was a crack on the LCD layer, you should still see it, right?  I'm completely clueless here, so any help would be greatly apprecitated.  I'll share more information as it becomes available, hopefully a picture...Thanks!!

You should still be able to see a faint image on the left side if it was the backlight that had died.
