Unfortunately that's a very common problem, There is a post that details how the LCD panels can be replaced individually if you're comfortable doing soldering work on micro computer boards. I've the same ink blot:

Relax. It's not that big of a deal. No soldering required. If you can turn a screwdriver, you can do this.
Here's DIY that I did to replace mine, and feedback from others that the China LCD's are performing well (so far...).
Best of luck and let us know how it goes.
